Following the company’s recent Direct Mini, Nintendo announced on Facebook this morning that it is prepared to make yet another reveal this afternoon in regards to the Switch. According to the company’s post on the ubiquitous social media site, the announcement will pertain to “a new interactive experience” for the system that is going to be “specially crafted for kids and those who are kids-at-heart,” with Nintendo leaving everything else to the imagination.
As seen in Nintendo’s post directly below, fans of the company living stateside can either learn what unfolds from the announcement later today by tuning in through the Big N’s Facebook page, or from the publisher and developer’s official YouTube channel. Thankfully, there’s still plenty of time to prepare and settle in before Nintendo divulges what it has planned for the Switch, as the announcement is expected to come at 2:00 PM PT and 5:00 PM ET.
Tune in here on Facebook or at youtube.com/nintendo at 2 p.m. PT/ 5 p.m. ET to discover a new interactive experience for Nintendo Switch that’s specially crafted for kids and those who are kids-at-heart.

While Nintendo didn’t give any more information other than the details letting everyone know that an announcement is imminent, it hasn’t stopped fans from hypothesizing what the company could be cooking up for the Switch that would be considered “a new interactive experience.” For instance, one theory postulates that new across-the-board features like “assist modes” for the console’s games are on the way, while another notion being floated by fans suggests the announcement could relate to new accessories and hardware. Perhaps it could even relate to this robotics patent Nintendo recently filed, but there’s no telling at the moment.
Whatever the case may be regarding Nintendo’s impending announcement, it definitely has fans busy with open speculations about what’s in the cards, and it’s undoubtedly exactly what the Big N wants to happen. After all, the contents of Nintendo’s reveal aren’t going to change in between now and the time of the announcement, which gives the company the ability to get a decent bead on the general consensus of what the fan base might want for the system later on down the line should today’s announcement be a disappointment.
The Nintendo Switch is available now.
