The exciting news comes by way of Nintendo’s Twitter account which earlier today peeking out from behind a curtain and the text “Be among the first to discover. Watch the Preview Trailer at 7am PT/10am ET!” (That’s 3pm BT or 1am AEDT if you plan on watching the trailer from a different continent.)
It’s an early wake up call for anyone on the West Coast but, based on what we know about the system, one that’ll be worth waking up for.
We’ve known that the system has existed for some time now thanks to a financial report given by former president Satoru Iwata, but this could be the first time that we’ll actually get to see what the hardware will look like outside of a few miscellaneous patent documents.
Turns out they were right.
Playing with portable power
In case you haven’t been following the developments, the latest report suggests the system will be a console-handheld hybrid that will in itself be a portable console that will have the capability of plugging into a dock for additional processing power – with one or two speculators suggesting that it would be able to play games in 4K.
The same report suggests that the controllers for the system can be detached when the system is docked and then re-attached when you want to take the system on the go.
I guess we’ll find out one way or another tomorrow.
