Nintendo has finally scheduled an event for the actual hands-on experience on their latest game console Nintendo Switch. For a time now since its announcement, players, fans and enthusiasts have been left wondering and waiting when they would actually get to test it. It seems that the torture is over or nearly over for some as the company has set an event in New York for next year.

The Nintendo Switch hands-on event is set to happen in New York. It will be on Jan. 13 to be exact. The announcement also detailed the planned presentation for the said console. Polygon reported that Nintendo will have first a streamed presentation on the evening of Jan. 12. That presentation called 'Tokyo webcast" will then be followed by a presentation the next day in New York which is expected to have at least a 5-hour event.

However, the hands-on experience will be limited to some certain people as it is revealed that it will be a press-only event. IGN claimed that the event is to further emphasize details that the gaming tech plans to announce the prior evening during the Nintendo Switch presentation in Tokyo.

Meanwhile, the Jan. 12 presentation which is for media, analysts, and trade partners will be revealing details about the console such as the release date, price and the titles that are currently in development for Switch. Details that we could recall haven't been revealed up until now since the three-minute announcement trailer of the console came out mid-October.

So far the event's exact venue hasn't been revealed by Nintendo and no other details are available for now. And as far as we know, the console is still pretty much still planned for release in March 2017. And there are also reports that for players in Japan, the first playable Switch will be available for them by February 2017 during the Tokaigi Japan Game Party 2017 as per Gamepur.
