More Nintendo Switch details will be announced January 12th. This is what we know so far.

A new Nintendo Switch report suggests the NX will ship with a 6.2-inch multitouch capacitive touchscreen.

That’s according to a piece on Eurogamer, which claims that the 10-point multitouch display will support multi-finger gestures, unlike the single-touch screens used on the 3DS and Wii U.

This makes it more like the screens used in smartphones, suggesting perhaps that the Nintendo Switch will support Nintendo’s range of mobile games.

By this reckoning, the 720p screen will also be able to play 3DS and Wii U games.

“Regarding the price, as we have been saying, we are, in principle, not planning to sell it at a loss.

“We would like a wide variety of consumers to enjoy Nintendo products, and we would also like to think in terms of consumersʼ expectations for our products.”

The last point will make for interesting reading for those eager to pre-order, as Nintendo seem confident that they can offer the right price to make it competitive in today’s console market.

In terms of the Nintendo Switch price, Ovum analyst Paul Jackson believes that £200-£220 represents the “sweet spot for mass adoption”, and that £300 would be a good price to start with for Nintendo.

“Classically the £200-£250 mark was a sweet spot for mass adoption – for tech loving Brits it’s just under that impulse buy ceiling – but that is quite low for a new console launch,” he said
