There is, of course, much more to the Switch than expected.  However, Nintendo isn't offering much detailed information just yet. Nintendo has an event scheduled this coming January 12 where we expect to learn more about Switch, but recently reporters have been digging up as much information as they can. Here's a roundup of the most credible speculations about Switch, from the price of the console to the games you can expect to find when it surely hits store shelves this March.

Rumored Specifications And Features

One of the first things to discuss is that the NX console is, as per speculations, both a home console and a handheld device. It's a hybrid of sorts which is an evolution of the Wii U's Gamepad. We all know that the device features a custom Tegra processor from Nvidia, the same kind to the one used to power the Nvidia Shield console. As for the screen concerns, we don't even know for sure if it's a touch device, however, reports have claimed that Nintendo Switch set to feature a 6.2-inch 720p display that supports multitouch.

Given Nintendo's history with devices like the DS and Wii U, not to mention its prospering mobile business, it makes sense that Switch will feature a touchscreen of some sort. It's not yet official, but according to a source that the Nintendo Switch screen is set to come with 6.2in with a 720p resolution. It's also a capacitive touchscreen like smartphones and could support 10-point multi-touch. It is also reported that the right-hand Joy Con houses an Infrared transmitter with which to interact with the dock.

Games, Availability And Price

Launch games are set to include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon Counterattack, Mario Kart 8: Switch It, a new Rabbids/Mario crossover and also the Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition. Rumors rounding up that price will come in around the $250 and with a version featuring more storage possibly available for $300.
