Nintendo Switch: Hardware overview video, TV commercials (JP), more

In a little over 3 weeks, the Nintendo Switch will finally be available worldwide, and there’s still a lot we don’t know about (online services such as the Nintendo eShop, the Virtual Console, etc.).

  • Lausanne (Japan Impact), on February 18th and February 19th.

The Nintendo Switch comes out on March 3rd worldwide.
