Many gaming fans have been eagerly waiting for the release of the new Nintendo Switch. The company has announced that they will organize a private hands-on event in New York before its official release in the market.

According to Polygon, Nintendo announced this week that they will make a hands-on debut at a private event in New York on January 13, 2017. This will be a five-hour event following a streamed presentation on the evening of January 12. This will be referred to as the "Tokyo webcast" and this will offer more details about the new Nintendo Switch.

This presentation is said to be held live for the investors and the media. Nintendo is yet to announce the specific date of the hands-on event.

Game Transfers reported that as of writing, Nintendo has announced that it is a private event. It is still unclear if the event on January 13 will be accessible to the public. It was also unclear if the event will include question and answer portions reserved for the press.

Fans will have to wait for more updates as it is expected that more details regarding Nintendo Switch will be released on January 13. Details like its exact release date, price and line-up games are expected to be announced on the said event.

There is a huge chance that the company's business partners, shareholders and the media will surely attend the special presentation. The location of the presentation is also unclear as of the moment but there is a possibility that it will be held in its New York official store.

The company has also not announced any presentation plans for Europe, but it was said that the press events for other continents will follow in later January or February, just before the official release of Nintendo Switch. It was said that Nintendo Switch is scheduled to be released in the market by March 2017.
