We’d not have thought it possible prior to the unveiling of the Nintendo Switch last week, but we’ve actually been left with more questions following the first-look trailer than before. Yes, we finally have confirmation following an onslaught of rumors that the new device will be both a handheld and home console as well as utilize cartridge-based games, but beyond that, we’re still largely in the dark as to what’s under the hood.
Thankfully, Nintendo’s confirmed the date in which we’ll hopefully find out more about the technical specs and games for the system, but there’s still a long wait to sit through. Announced via Twitter, a further Nintendo Switch livestream will be held on January 12, 2017, and will include a firm launch date, pricing and a “look at the lineup of games currently in development.”

As per Destructoid, Nintendo says that the livestream will be available to watch globally, with attendance reserved for “invited media, financial analysts, and trade partners.” “There will be opportunities for the public to participate in other hands-on events around the same time,” adds Nintendo, more details for which will be announced later.
So we know for sure that a (hopefully) large range of games will be on show come January and be running on the Nintendo Switch, but what can we expect to see? The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is a shoo-in, but we’re hoping to see more of the new Mario title shown briefly in the video above as well as some surprises.
