Japan’s Nintendo Co Ltd made a statement about launching a mini clip today with respect to the next-gen console which is to be launched worldwide in March 2017. This announcement has actually increased the shares of the company up by 4% which is simply crazy. We were unable to speculate or theorize what the brief video will consist of as Nintendo clearly said that the preview trailer “will serve as Nintendo's preliminary announcement of information regarding the platform”.
However, I don’t think that the preview trailer will just be an itsy-bitsy framing of Nintendo’s next-gen game system. On the other hand, some fans actually have begun to put their money on something more similar to Wii’s announcement. If you can recall it; only the name was revealed in that video. Before the actual launch, only a few details of the next-gen console were given which were past the codename, NX.
Nintendo has finally launched its first trailer for the NX platform today, watch it here NOW!

The Nintendo Switch has been launched as the new hybrid handheld console from Nintendo.
“Introducing Nintendo Switch!” a statement from Nintendo, “in addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.”
The console has a detachable “Nintendo Switch Dock” base and has snap controller pads, called “Joy-Con controllers” that can also be made part of the handheld design. As you snap in places, you get to play the game on the go- this had been speculated a lot in recent reports. Confirmation of the full titles playable on the go is there as well and this is what fans believed meant some sort of mobile game.
The Nintendo Switch release date has been confirmed but there is no information regarding the cost, battery life or any other essential specs.
