#NintendoSwitch #Gaming – Nintendo Switch UK release date REVEALED: Has major leak pinpointed exact launch date? : Nintendo Switch release date may have been revealed in a huge leak online. The Nintendo Switch release date is currently set for an unspecified point in March, and won’t be officially announced until Nintendo’s January briefing.
According to one report, however, it looks like the Nintendo Switch release date may have already been set as March 17. “Being told March 17th is currently planned Switch launch day in PAL, will release worldwide that same week but not same date all regions,” said Laura Kate Dale on Twitter.
While it’s worth taking the info with a pinch of salt, Dale had previously correctly revealed the date of the Nintendo Switch trailer unveiling. “This is from the same source who told me about the reveal trailer date before it was official, I have reason to trust their info,” reads a follow up tweet.
According to the leak, the Japanese Nintendo Switch release date is likely to be a few days before. The Nintendo Switch is also said to be region free, which means fans can import and play games from other territories.
Nintendo said that it would announce the Nintendo Switch price, games list and release date during a special event in Tokyo on January 13. While it’s unclear exactly when the event will take place, time differences mean it will take place on January 12 in North America.
While fans are still waiting for Nintendo to reveal the Switch specs in full, the company has confirmed that the device will be powered by a custom Tegra processor from NVIDIA. The high-efficiency scalable processor is said to include an NVIDIA GPU based on the “same architecture as the world’s top-performing GeForce gaming graphics cards”.
The fully custom software is also said to include a revamped physics engine, as well as new libraries and advanced game tools. With developers reportedly porting their PS4 games to Nintendo Switch, the part handheld, part home console should be comparable in power to Sony’s console and the Xbox One. Source: express
