Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 estimated to be about an hour long

Posted on January 7, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

All of the details surrounding the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 are starting to come into form. Within the past couple of days, we’ve heard that the event will be broadcast in Japanese with English voiceover while Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima will be presenting. One of the final remaining uncertainties is how long it’ll be.

Niconico appears to provide an answer. On the live streaming site’s timetable, it shows an estimated length of an hour. That would make sense given how Nintendo’s broadcasts tend not to be overly long. Past E3 presentations usually lasted about an hour, for example. The Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 won’t be an hour on the dot, but you can likely expect it to be finished in roughly that amount of time, going off of Niconico.

Nintendo’s broadcast kicks off at 8 PM PT / 11 PM ET on January 12 (4 AM in the UK / 5 AM in Europe on January 13). We’ll have a live stream and blog post on the site before it begins.

          • Diortem8841

            Ok ๐Ÿ™

          • hi v3.0

            You know how to trigger me don’t you

          • JasonBall

            Somebody has a history. Do I want to know?

          • Diortem8841

            hi and I are pals, have been for a while now!

          • JasonBall

            Lmao I get the sense that’s not what hi will say.

          • hi v3.0

            Lol me and Dio are still kinda friends in a way but he is a racist, saying other religions and cultures is sh*t, go to NintendoToday and scan through the comments and you will know what I’m talking about, and he also says Super Mario Run is a sh*t game

          • JasonBall

            Opinions about a controversial game are definitely on par with racism and islamophobia. I gotcha.

          • Diortem8841

            I like you ๐Ÿ™‚

            Wanna be friends?

          • JasonBall

            Not really.

          • Diortem8841

            Playing hard to get? LOL I’m gonna friend you even harder now!

          • hi v3.0

            You made a good decision

          • Diortem8841

            We’re gonna have a Ball together and he knows it!

          • Tlink7

            I feel terribly rude barging into this… whatever this thread is, but I seem to recall you liking animoo chesticles, mr Ball! How terribly disappointing!

          • JasonBall

            Say wot?

          • Diortem8841

            Weird thing to say. People have rights, that includes free speech.

          • MagcargoMan

            Can you read?

          • Diortem8841

            You just typed “Can you read?” and failed to be witty.

            I think I can read.

          • hi v3.0

            Sometimes you can’t

          • Diortem8841

            You’re right, I need my glasses at times.

          • hi v3.0

            Lol

          • Diortem8841

            LOL I just read the fine print. Didn’t even see it when you first posted because it’s so tiny. Rock on.

          • hi v3.0

            See this is why I don’t want you to be in this site

          • Diortem8841

            Because I need glasses?

            Why are you being racist?

          • hi v3.0

            How am I being racist, it’s more like you can easily start up arguements

          • Diortem8841

            I was mocking you for saying “racist” so often ๐Ÿ™‚

            You gotta get better at reading sarcasm!

          • hi v3.0

            You know I’m dumb ๐Ÿ™‚

          • JasonBall

            How is this relevant. I totally agree, but not what I was going for with my line of thought.

          • MagcargoMan

            “How is this relevant.”

            You used the Islamophobia buzzword.

          • Diortem8841

            Hey man, I like you. Wanna be friends?

          • MagcargoMan

            Only if you don’t keep filling comments sections with this spam.

          • hi v3.0

            That’s what he does in the other site

          • Diortem8841

            By spam do you mean conversation? We here to chat it up! Love me some Nintendo!

          • hi v3.0

            Mods plz ban this guy

          • Diortem8841

            Hey, take it easy haha!

          • hi v3.0

            Easy for you to say

          • hi v3.0

            Say no

          • JasonBall

            Oh okay sorry, yeah I was just throwing out words to illustrate a point about how social issues should not be in the same line of thought as an opinion on Super Mario Run.

          • MagcargoMan

            Ah, sorry. My bad. I’m just tired of how people act like it’s a sacred cow religion that should be free of criticism and how anyone who says something bad about it is somehow racist, so I tend to roll my eyes at that term.

          • Diortem8841

            You’re spot-on! Islam is cancerous, good for you to criticize it!

          • hi v3.0

            I guess I wasn’t specific enough but I can’t really explain it

          • Abra

            islamophobia is a joke..

          • Diortem8841

            LOL I like you! Wanna be pals?

          • Abra

          • Diortem8841

            Are you Sleepy Abra? ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Abra

            are you really using a photo from one of the thugs who kiddnapped that kid in Chicago as your profile pic….. :I

          • DindioNuffin

            Yep. Complete scumbag, isn’t he?

            So what’s up with you?

          • hi v3.0

          • Diortem8841

            Stop making things up about me. It’s not nice.

          • hi v3.0

            I’m not making up lol

          • Diortem8841

            Calling someone racist is obnoxious. Quit with the vacuous labels please.

          • hi v3.0

            I thought we were friends ๐Ÿ™

          • Diortem8841

            I want to be but you’re being mean to me and keep calling me things I’m not. Please stop.

          • hi v3.0

          • Diortem8841

            Who said it was?

            Stop being a sourpuss!

          • hi v3.0

            You tried to make so many jokes in the past but no one laughed..

          • Diortem8841

            Your sense of humor is trash, you not laughing means nothing to me!

            No offense

          • hi v3.0

            Nah, the fact that you upvoted your jokes proves that you have no faith in your creation

          • Diortem8841

            The exact opposite is true. I don’t upvote unfunny comments!

          • hi v3.0

            Now you’re upvoting your comments, is anyone laughing no

          • Diortem8841

            You jelly?

            Want some upvoots?

          • Diortem8841

            Check your notifications LOL

          • hi v3.0

            why

          • Diortem8841

            Go look

          • hi v3.0

            Wow you’re so nice ! Upvotes beats words !!

          • Diortem8841

            Now be nice to me ๐Ÿ™‚

          • hi v3.0

            I am nice to you
            Switch is not a home console, it’s a hybrid btw

          • Diortem8841
          • hi v3.0

            Negative

          • Diortem8841

            From Nintendo themselves.

            You are wrong.

          • hi v3.0

            You know they’re wrong, just like how DS is not gonna replace GBA

          • Diortem8841

            Wrong about what? They won’t even admit it’ll replace Wii U, they never do. But they stated the fact that Switch is primarily a home console.

          • hi v3.0

            The power is in the tablet, and it’s 1:36 am so late lol

          • Diortem8841

            It’s less powerful as a tablet…

            As per Nintendo, Switch is primarily a home console.

            And I’m staying up all night for the snow.

          • hi v3.0

            I’m tired now, just played a bit of WWHD before I got in this conversation

          • Diortem8841

            Have you beaten WW before? I’m about to start BoxBoxBoy!, downloaded it a few days ago ๐Ÿ™‚

          • hi v3.0

            no my first time playing it and it’s sooo easy bruh
            I’m currently trying to finish Devil Survivor 2, really close to it

          • Diortem8841

            It’s so great, are you enjoying it? I love the art style :3

          • hi v3.0

            Yeah I love the cel shaded style and Toon Link is so cute, there are noticible frame rate drops at times, sailing can be a bit tedious at times tho

          • Diortem8841

            Sailing is my least favorite part, just be happy you’re not playing the GC version. Sailing is even slower lol, they improved it for Wii U. But everything on land is amazing.

          • hi v3.0

            The dungeons are easy too, I guess this is what happens when I replayed OoT 3D a couple months ago lol

          • Diortem8841

            It’s on the easier side, but really enjoyable. Breath of the Wild already looks significantly more difficult from what we’ve seen so far.

          • hi v3.0

            Speaking of OOT I was like why everyone said Water Temple is so hard, but then I went around and I JUST CAN’T FIND THAT ONE SINGLE KEY AND YOU GOTTA GO UNDERNEATH AND GO UP I WAS SOO MAD BACK THEN
            BoTW looks difficult yeah cuz you take a lot of damage from enemies

          • Diortem8841

            I can’t fookin wait for BotW water temple ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Vigilante_blade

            To be fair, on the Super Mario Run comment, I would agree.

          • Jacob Groves

            GET IT OVER YOUR WHINING!!!

          • Liam Freeman

            What even is this comment thread. We went from the Switch to discussing what’s morally right or wrong, to bad pickup lines, to Super Mario Run.

  • It’s h a p p e n i n g

  • Coonfoot

    Good, I’ll accept no length less than that for a presentation this big.

    • Diortem8841

      You’re picky when it comes to length ๐Ÿ™‚

  • TDude73

    I’ll allow it!!!

  • Blandrew

    Please no heavy amounts of talking. Hope the pacing is great.

    • NintendoPSXTheSecond

      If you’re expecting E3 2014 levels of pacing, you’re insane. Expect TONS of talking. That’s what we want. We need to know this thing in and out before they even show us games for it.

      • Diortem8841

        You pwnt him so hard he deleted his comment! Hahaha!!

        • NintendoPSXTheSecond

          Well this is a first. Should I feel bad? lol

          • Diortem8841

            LOL just messing witchu m8 ๐Ÿ™‚

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Dare I even ask what the original comment was?

          • NintendoPSXTheSecond

            Something about how he wanted just game trailers or reveals or something.

          • ForeVision

            Albeit that game trailers give a fairly good first look at a game (provided one doesn’t take them too seriously, since it’s obviously messed with to look perfect) I 100% agree that information is what’s sorely needed from this event. Price, specs, launch line-up, region locking to name a few.

          • NintendoPSXTheSecond

            Oh no totally true we need to see some games, I just merely meant don’t expect 60 minutes of just game footage lol

          • ForeVision

            I’d say every bit of info that could be useful for potential Switch buyers to know is to be released.

  • JasonBall

    In less than a week, we will know everything about the new console launching in less than 3 months. This is insane. I still don’t know whether cutting it so close was brilliant or stupid. Like when Will Turner was walking underwater with the lifeboat turned upside down for air. Brains or madness?

    Edit: really looking forward to any skits. I swear, some of the comedic timing at E3 2014 and in other Directs has me on the floor.

    • Kenshin0011

      Society nowadays is super prone to distraction and getting sidetracked due to the speed of information flow on social media.

      I believe it will be just fine, if not better than having revealed back in October

  • chancetime

    Good! I didn’t think it was gonna be as short as 30-40 minutes but I’m glad it’s been confirmed.

    With an hour long, I’m hoping we’re gonna get a decent amount of new game peaks alongside the console details ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Diortem8841

      Games-wise, there will be a Treehouse stream the morning after the reveal focusing on Switch games ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Abra

    it’s always about an hour long..

    • Diortem8841

      I like your avatar ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Abra

        thanks :v

          • hi v3.0

            Is Pokemon the only thing you play

          • Diortem8841

            No, but I do love me some Pokemon!

          • hi v3.0

            How so? Idc if you quit I’m just punning it up in hur!

          • hi v3.0

            You need a better way to do it

  • QuestionKing3445

    An hour long switch presentation. (Wonder how much they can cram in. A quick look at every game with a release date. A snippet of gameplay, and will they talk about specs to stop all these rumors?)

      Say thank you to Dio, this is why I don’t want him in this site, everything used to be so peaceful here

      • Diortem8841

        How are things not peaceful? Just because they’re not boring?

            I remember your name but not much of our interactions.

          • Tlink7

            Probably because I haven’t been around that long yet ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Diortem8841

      WooHoo!

      • hi v3.0

        yeah screw you

    • Tlink7

      You like Jon, I like you!

    • Liam Freeman

      I wholeheartedly agree. I usually don’t, but this comment section is just…. why??

  • hi v3.0

    SMH

    • Diortem8841

      Why are you shaking your hips at a time like this!

      • hi v3.0

        Not funny

        • Diortem8841

          I know, your dancing is terrible!

          SHAKING MY HEAD

          • hi v3.0

            It is terrible, cuz I don’t dance

          • Diortem8841

            Well duh, you’re As–

            … As smart as you are because you don’t waste time dancing!

          • hi v3.0

            Well it’s called talent ๐Ÿ™‚
            And I have no talents..

          • Diortem8841

            I know ๐Ÿ˜€

          • hi v3.0

            F*ck you d*ckhead

  • awng781

    E3 2004 (DS unveiling): 48 minutes
    E3 2006 (Wii unveiling): 1 hour 4 minutes
    E3 2010 (3DS unveiling): 1 hour 17 minutes
    E3 2012 (Wii U unveiling): 1 hour 10 minutes

    Considering that all of those E3’s were not entirely dedicated to talking about the new platform being unveiled (Nintendo talked about Gamecube and GBA content at E3 2004, DS content at E3 2006, Wii and DS content at E3 2010, and 3DS content at E3 2012), allocating 1 hour dedicated solely to unveiling the Switch is plenty of time.

  • Tlink7

    Holy Mary mother of Jeebus! Can’t wait to press my face against the screen for an hour

  • Stuart

    Expected, lets just hope Nintendo doesnt pull out a “Sony” and spend half of the presentation talking about specs.

    • MagcargoMan

      Doubt it. Nintendo prefer to show off software than talk about specs.

  • link2metroid

    Guess which 2 morons have filled this story full of complete crap comments?

    An hour is plenty long for a presentation.

      Yeah we made tons of BS comments but its mainly Dio’s fault. I’ve been in this site for a while you know

      • MagcargoMan

        You kept responding to him, dude. You aren’t innocent here.

      • Indielink

        You could’ve ignored him. You’re at fault too. Really that entire first thread should deleted or being so offtopic.

        • Diortem8841

          Get over it, stiff. Jesus.

    • Diortem8841

      Guess which moron is whining about comments? Get over it.

      What a crap comment.

    • Addy

      Pay no heed to them, they’re just degenerate idiots.

      • hi v3.0

        Not me !

    • FowlOsborn

      I literally left WiiUDaily just because of Diortem, I really wish the mods would make sure everyone is civil here.

      • hi v3.0

    • hi v3.0

      They won’t be playing their Wii U anymore by then

      • SpectralDynamite

        But I will.

        • hi v3.0

          Me too

  • metalpants

    Oh boy!

    An hour should be fairly sufficient. However, I hope they avoid too much filler content like they had at E3 2015 with the developer interviews about each game. Developer interviews are great. However, they ought to be an optional side event on YouTube, with a fleeting reference within the main presentation providing details about how to access the content for prospective viewers. Similar filler content should also be avoided, instead putting the main focus on the platform (by platform I mean hardware, system software, and games/apps).

    All I ask is please Nintendo; you must surpass the September 14th, 2006 Japanese sizzle reel in terms of length and quality: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYARgQNDowk

    The rest don’t matter to me.

  • Diortem8841

    I vote you shut your mouth.

  • Toya Brown

    How exciting! Beyond Good and Evil 2 Odyssey is presenting!

  • Coonfoot

    Looking at these comments, I now remember why I don’t like the community here.

  • Coonfoot

    I think it’s also WHAT they’re saying that’ll get them banned (some comments were racist and really unnecessary). This site seriously needs better moderation when it comes to the comments section.
