Nintendo to preview Switch right after January Presentation

Posted on December 19, 2016 by Jason Nason

Nintendo plans to reveal additional details about the upcoming Nintendo Switch during the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 on January 12th, 2017, and then shortly thereafter they’re taking the Switch on tour.

After the presentation in Tokyo, Nintendo’s next home gaming system is traveling across North America to provide hands-on time for fans, gamers, families and everyone in between. The Nintendo Switch will be the star of an interactive multi-city tour that is open to the public on select days.

The currently scheduled cities that are part of the tour include:

  • New York – January 13-15
  • Toronto – January 27-29
  • Washington, D.C. – February 10-12
  • Chicago – February 17-19
  • San Francisco – February 24-26
  • Los Angeles – March 3-5

We’ll be on hand at the Toronto event on January 27th, so be sure to check back for our hands on feedback with the Nintendo Switch.

The first two days of each of these tour stops is invite-only, but fans are invited to join the fun on the third day. The Sunday stop of each tour is open free to the public, so anyone that wants to be among the first people in the world to experience Nintendo Switch will have her or his chance. Space is very limited, however, and fans will be let in on a first-come, first-served basis. Early arrival is highly recommended.

Select launch games will be playable at the event, so we’ll have lots of information to share about what these are and how they play.

Nintendo will also be bringing the Nintendo Switch and launch games to PAX South in San Antonio (Jan. 27-29), PAX East in Boston (March 10-12) and SXSW in Austin, Texas (March 16-18).
