Nintendo Switch presentation livestream – scheduled for next week – will be broadcasted in Japanese with English voiceover, Nintendo of Europe has confirmed.

Nintendo has also confirmed that all announcements – big and small – will also be shared on Nintendo of Europe’s Twitter account. Those of you who are interested in viewing the event live need to tune in at 08:00 PM PT, 11:00 PM ET on Jan. 12 or 04:00 AM GMT, 05:00 AM CET on Jan. 13.
Pre-orders for the console are live in different regions including Italy and the UK’s Gamestop websites. Although Nintendo has yet to officially announce the console’s pricing details, prices mentioned by the retailers do not look like placeholder prices. From what we believe, Nintendo may actually try and sell its upcoming console for €399.98.
Once again, this is something Nintendo has not officially disclosed yet and subject to change.
According to another report, the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild might release alongside the hybrid-console as a launch title, but only in North America and Japan. Nintendo Europe reportedly wants more time to test and localise the game which is why the studio is targeting a late 2017 release.
Nintendo of Japan, on the other hand, always wanted March 2017 release window. Hopefully, we will learn more about it during Nintendo’s presentation on Jan. 12/13, 2017.
Nintendo Switch is scheduled to release sometime in March 2017.
