    Are you ready? It's finally time for Nintendo to show off what they have prepared for the Switch, from the launch date to the price of the system, and perhaps even the Switch's game lineup. GBAtemp will be here to cover the entire event when the stream goes live on January 12 at 10PM CST / 4am GMT.

    Skip to 33:30
    Conference Start

    Here we go folks

    Kimishima is on stage. He's going over what was announced in the Switch reveal trailer.

    Launch and retail price coming up.

    Releasing WW March 3 2017
    Retailing for 299.99 USD, EU price is based on retailer
    Online services can be demod for free, but will be a PAID service in the Fall of 2017 live Xbox Live and PSN.
    NO REGION LOCKING. They nearly trolled everyone!
    Nintendo console history
    Play styles TV mode, play games on the TV like a console. Tabletop mode joy cons disconnected. Portable mode is like a typical handheld.
    Battery life will be 2.5 hours to 6 hours.
    Uses USB Type C
    Capacative touch
    They're going to talk about the joy con controllers.
    The analogues are buttons themselves.
    NFC and amiibos supported
    Screenshot/share button
    Social media sharing
    Accelorometer and gyro controls
    The joycon has more to come...they're going to come in red and blue and have a wrist strap
    It has a motion IR camera which can tell how far objects are. The Joycon can convey the feeling of very subtle vibrations, looks very impressive. Called HD rumble.
    new games!
    1 2 Switch, a motion based game
    This "video" game doesn't require a screen, and instead requires you to "look into the eyes of your opponent" to play. Nintendo wants this to be a huge party game. Comes out as a launch title.
    Next game looks like a boxing game.
    Called ARMS
    Fighting sports game.
    "It's like boxing and shooting combined"
    Joycon senses your punches, a lot like a modern wii boxing.
    Springman and Ribbongirl
    Online Multiplayer, not a launch title, coming Spring 2017
    Splatoon being shown.

    I forgot

    Switch "Features" listed on their main page. 32GB of internal storage with SDXC support, and a 6.2" 720p screen.

    Just adding in case you can't see, cuz the site is getting swamped :P

    No tech specs though, which is sad.
