Kimishima Discussed Reception To The Nintendo Switch Reveal Trailer

Nintendo’s President, Tatsumi Kimishima, dedicated a segment on the Nintendo Switch. We already know about the presentation coming in January, but that’s not all that Kimishima had to share during today’s financial briefing. He said the following: “Finally, we will discuss our new gaming platform, Nintendo Switch. We had previously revealed that we have a new game system in development under the codename NX, and we have now announced that it will be released under the official name Nintendo Switch. We recently released a short video through our website showing off some of the new experiences made possible by Nintendo Switch. Please take a look.

We have received a fantastic response from all over the world to the Nintendo Switch reveal video presented above. We are not able to share each qualitative comment and response from consumers today. However, one example is the number of views we have received on our YouTube accounts. The total number of views just on our official YouTube Channels has already reached 23 million views worldwide and still growing. The reaction from our YouTube viewers has been overwhelmingly positive. We are very confident that a lot of consumers around the world have become interested in Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo Switch is a home console-type video game system that can be played at home or on the go. You can take the system away from your TV and play anywhere, alone or with friends. We are bringing this unprecedented entertainment experience to fans across the world.

When mounted on the Nintendo Switch Dock, you can experience high-impact gameplay on the large screen. Just remove the Nintendo Switch system from the Nintendo Switch Dock to transfer the game from the TV to the system screen instantly, letting you experience home console-quality gaming while switching between the TV and any other location.

The two unique detachable Joy-Con controllers also allow you to switch between multiple play styles with a single Nintendo Switch system, whether at home or on the go, letting you enjoy the gameplay of a home video game system with the portable convenience of a handheld system.

Nintendo Switch™ Partners (Partial List) As you can see, we have a fantastic range of partner companies interested in Nintendo Switch. These are only some of our partners, and we are looking forward to working with all of our partners to bring exciting experiences to this new platform.

We plan to launch Nintendo Switch worldwide in March 2017. We are planning to ship two million hardware units globally from launch in March 2017 through the end of that month.

We plan to announce the price, software lineup, specifications and other product details for Nintendo Switch at a special “Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017” planned for January 13, 2017 (JST). We will invite the media, analysts and distribution partners to this event, to be held at Tokyo Big Sight in Japan. The presentation event will also be streamed live worldwide over the Internet. We do not plan to release any additional information about the product until that time.

We also plan to provide a “Nintendo Switch Hands-On Experience 2017” as early as January in Japan, the U.S. and Europe. In Japan, we will follow the presentation on January 13 with the hands-on experience for the general public at Tokyo Big Sight on January 14 and 15. Hands-on experiences will be offered for media and business partners in the U.S., Europe and Australia at around the same time. Our local subsidiaries will provide more details.”



    1. There’s Nintendo Japan channel’s video (3 millions views the last time I checked), Nintendo UK, Nintendo of Europe, Nintendo of Canada, etc, etc, etc

      1. So Europe only had like 2 million views? I’m guessing Canada is lumped in with NoA’s YouTube channel right?

        1. There’s Nintendo of Spain, Nintendo of Portugal, Nintendo of France… so many videos, I guess even if they had little views the sum would add up to 23 million.

  1. 23 million? That’s more views than Xbone’s got sales… (and almost twice Wii U’s lifetime sales)

  2. Yeah but 18 million views are from the US alone so what’s going on with the rest of the world? What’s wrong with those people !!! Come on this is AWESOME they have to support it!

  3. I wish Nintendo comes to every country in SouthAmerica, because when they mention LatinAmerica it’s only Brazil and Mexico. There’s almost nothing from Nintendo in other countries. I know it’s hard to be in every country, but at least an official Nintendo retail store would be awesome, because other stores just sell the products at twice the price or more; and not always there’s way to obtain good official products. So i hope they change their strategy this time if they want to sell a lot of units. In SouthAmerica is where Nintendo has a lot of fans and they don’t f… know about it.

    1. I feel really sorry for you mate. Hence why I am frustrated with blokes saying I will pay a switch $500 retail price … Yeah Ok for you but the rest of us it means $1000 or more. Hope you manage to find a switch at a.good /decent price.

        1. At the moment I live in Europe, but I had a taste of the live in Ecuador and Uruguay. I had work colleague who live in Brazil and they told me that for phone or electronic they had to get everything shipped from Usa because if it shipped from Europe or even Africa the cost of the border tax are enormous and ridiculous.

          1. It is, i live in Ecuador. Southamerica countries has politics that don’t always go along with Northamerica. Wishing the best for the region. :(

  4. Well if that case then I don’t mind seeing the price in January so we can see what the price is. Besides Nintendo do have time to make 3 games for the switch as a launch titles. :/
