Today will kickstart what will be a very excited weekend for Nintendo fans.
The gaming giant is set to reveal a stack of new details for its upcoming home console, Switch, including (but not limited to) price, launch lineup, specs, features, and, importantly, release date.
The good news is that the presentation can be viewed by anyone, anywhere, and that it’s happening at a reasonable time in Australia.
Then, after the presentation and throughout the weekend, be sure to keep a lookout on Fenix Bazaar for Switch updates: we will be going hands-on with the Switch over the weekend, and will be sure to update you throughout.
