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.
