Last week Nintendo finally gave the world a glimpse of its forthcoming Switch console with a special preview event. During the footage, the console's physical form was shown off as well as simulated footage of software in action.

Nintendo has since revealed that more information will be coming in January, but in the meantime Nintendo has stated that the original YouTube preview event was watched by a staggering 23 million people - a figure which rises by the day - and audience reaction was 95 percent positive.

Hopefully that means the system has enough awareness to be a smash-hit in March. Nintendo has confirmed that two million units will be available at release, so if just 10 percent of that 23 million intend to make a purchase, the console should have a pretty special launch period.
