See you in 2017

When Nintendo announced that it would be doing the official reveal for the Switch, fans were understandably excited at what might be said. The reveal ended up being, more or less, what was expected; that is to say, it pretty much just showed the console itself and revealed the name. Specs, game lineups, and other such details are still relatively unknown, and it appears that they will stay that way till next year.

The Wall Street Journal has referenced remarks by Tatsumi Kimishima, where he announced that Nintendo will be keeping hardware specs and games under wraps until 2017 rolls around.

While some may be a bit miffed that there might not be as much info in the next few weeks as was previously thought, this is likely just a cautionary move to prevent Holiday sales from being completely torpedoed. Also, this doesn't entirely rule out new information coming by way of third parties, so perhaps we won't be totally in the dark until next year.

What do you think? Would you like to hear more specifics about the Switch in the near future? Do you think this is the right move for Nintendo? Drop us a comment in the section below.
