The trailer for Nintendo’s next home console, the Nintendo Switch, just dropped. Take a look after the jump!
The wait is almost over. Following months of rumors and theories, Nintedo’s next home console is about to be revealed. The company just announced that it will release a three-minute-long preview trailer for the NX on Thursday at 7 a.m. PT/10 a.m. ET.
There’s been no confirmation as to where this trailer will be posted, but Nintendo’s official YouTube channel would be my first place to look. In any case, I’ll be sure to post the video as soon as it’s up.

YouTube channel Did You Know Gaming recently released one of its more sobering episodes with a look back at former Nintendo President Satoru Iwata.
Clocking in at 19 minutes, this touching tribute serves as a healthy reminder of Iwata’s impact on the gaming industry at large. From his programming days at HAL Laboratory to the revolution brought about by the DS and Wii, the video definitely runs the gamut in terms of the late pioneer’s storied career.
Every time I hear about Iwata’s legacy, I’m particularly struck by his hands-on approach during his tenure as HAL’s president. On top of programming the prototype for the original Super Smash Bros., the guy personally stepped in on and dramatically impacted the development of games such as Earthbound and Pokemon Gold and Silver.

This past weekend, Nintendo Minute hosts Kit Ellis and Krysta Yang celebrated Zelda’s 30th anniversary with a rundown of their top three favorite entries in the series. Although there is some overlap — Skyward Sword is on both lists — this video highlights how the franchise as a whole has managed to attract people with radically different tastes.
Yang praises Twilight Princess as her No. 1 pick, and attributes much of the game’s brilliance to everyone’s favorite mischievous imp. Indeed, the air of mystery that surrounds Midna throughout most of the adventure was one of the driving factors of my first play-through.
