How and where to watch the Nintendo Switch January livestream event

Posted January 12, 2017

The Nintendo Switch is now set to be officially released sometime in March. Community's anticipation gets hotter as the hybrid console's price reveals within the affordable price range. To date, Nintendo has sold more than 13 million Wii U consoles.

Not only are we expected to learn the price and release date, but the tech specs and the line up of launch games. We already know at least a few games that are in the works for the console, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Dragon Quest XI, and a new, unnamed 3D Super Mario adventure. Likewise, another post on Reddit from a supposed Best Buy employee had stated a change report came in revealing the Nintendo Switch will be priced at $249.99. According to a screenshot included in this WCCF Tech report, the retailer has the Switch selling for 329.99 Canadian dollars, meaning those in the US may be able to get it for just a little under $250. We may be getting a Switch iteration of a Pokemon game.

The gaming industry is now facing large unsustainable budgets in developing games but with the Switch, Nintendo will be able to defy the odds. There's a lot that we don't yet know about the system, and while we don't expect all of our questions to be answered, we know Nintendo will detail some of the most important facts and features.

Betsy DeVos' senate confirmation delayed amid concerns over her political donations
A group of Senate Democrats, including Ohio's Sherrod Brown , have sent DeVos multiple letters that urge her to pay the fine. She has no understanding of the needs of our nation's public schools, and she is in fact actively hostile to them.

Nintendo has a stranglehold on gaming news right now. With the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ranging around $500 in their initial releases, analysts states that Nintendo may not pitch something higher than $300 for the Switch.

The company is apparently prepping a version of its Real Arcade Pro arcade stick for the Switch, according to a report from Gamespot.

Along with the rumored price, Target also has 15 slots for potential Nintendo Switch games, meaning that we could be seeing that many games when the console hits shelves this March. The hardware will likely ship alongside several video games made both by Nintendo and third-party developers.
