    Nintendo is holding their Switch unveiling at 11pm EST on Thursday, January 12 (that's tomorrow night, in case you hadn't noticed). Presumably the lid will be blown off with all the details including price, release date (still on schedule for March), launch lineup, new game unveilings, and more.

    Will you be watching? What are your expectations? Reactions?

    Decided to get bold with a few of my predictions. All of these are solely for North America.
    • MSRP of $249.99
    • Only one SKU/bundle at launch
    • Zelda: BotW and Mario Kart will both release for Switch at launch
    • The Wii U version of Zelda: BotW will not be released after the Switch version, unlike Twilight Princess on GameCube and Wii, and will be released alongside the Switch version
    • The new Mario will be released holiday 2017
    • Splatoon will release within two months of the Switch's launch
    • Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U will be "combined" and released for Switch, but no solid release date
    • The Virtual Console service will either be renamed, or the name will simply be eliminated
    • Mother 3 / Earthbound 2 will be announced
    • A new Metroid will be announced... developed by Next Level Games
    • Pikmin 3DS (which I forgot was a thing until earlier today) will be moved/ported to Switch
    • Rabbids x Mario crossover RPG is indeed a thing
    • Beyond Good and Evil tease
    • Assassin's Creed: Osiris tease
    • Dragon Quest XI localization announcement
    • Announcement of either a new Final Fantasy spinoff or remake, or a port of Final Fantasy XV
    also hi I still exist
