Today during a livestream on Nico Nico to introduce the content of the upcoming Tokaigi Japan Game Party 2017 organized by the local streaming portal, Nintendo announced a new chance to test the Nintendo Switch in Japan before its release.

The console will be available and playable on the show floor during the duration of the event, that will be held at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, near Tokyo (the same venue used for Tokyo Game Show) between February 11th and February 12th.

Nintendo has historically been one of the major sponsors of the event, and this edition won’t be an exception to that rule, with Sega, Bandai Namco, Square Enix, Level-5 and Ubisoft also joining among game publishers.

The Nintendo Switch will be released next March, even if we still don’t know the precise release date just yet. You can check out the reveal video here.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
