For much of us, the Nintendo Switch has become our go-to console in current years, with its hardware flexibility and frankly outstanding library of games helping it to probably turn into one of the best consoles the business has ever launched.
In the spirit of making everybody– ourselves included– feel painfully old, let us remind you that it was four years ago today when we initially discovered everything about the consoles launch. On 13th January 2017, Nintendo hosted a presentation which unveiled the consoles release date, the systems price, the existence of 1-2-Switch, and the news that Zelda: Breath of the Wild would be a Switch launch game. And lots, lots more.
It was a respectable day for Nintendo fans, thats for sure, and if we remember correctly, pre-orders for the console went live around the world just hours after the discussion concerned an end. If you wish to relive the program in all its glory, you can check it out below– it kicks off at the 33-minute mark.
