Nintendo has said it will discuss Switch's price, game lineup, specs, and "other details" during the event. The stream is intended for a worldwide audience, but according to Nintendo UK (via Nintendo Everything), it will be broadcast in Japanese with English language voiceover.

Nintendo also plans to further highlight Switch games in another livestream the following morning. Return here at 6:30 AM PT/9:30 AM ET on Friday, January 13, to watch that Treehouse Live event.
