Today the company announced that starting January 13th - the day after it reveals more details about its next piece of hardware - Nintendo will be making the Switch playable to the public at large, with a multi-city tour that kicks off in NY.
Nintendo is taking its new Switch console on the road this January to give fans a hands-on look before it hits store shelves. Patents that Nintendo filed for the Nintendo Switch, however, reveal that there might be more to the hybrid console. The third day, however, will be open to the public and absolutely free of charge. Going by this, developers wouldn't be bound by how Nintendo made a decision to design the Switch's controllers and could choose to come up with a controller scheme all their own that could make their games easier to play on the Switch. If you miss it during its tour and happen to be going to one of these events, you'll get a second chance to see the Switch there. According to Nintendo, however, space will be limited, and people will only be allowed in on a first-come, first-served basis. "Early arrival is highly recommended".
Nintendo announced its latest video game console in October, but the company might've kept some of its features a secret.
The console was even showcased at "The Tonight Show" that's hosted by Jimmy Fallon, and the host got a chance to play "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" which is a Nintendo exclusive title.
We don't know when in March Nintendo Switch will be available to buy, or for how much-that's supposed to be revealed during the january 12 Tokyo livestream. The question about lineup should have been answered months ago when gamers are trying to balance their decision whether to purchase Nintendo Switch or not. We'll find out soon enough.
