If you’ve been salivating for more Nintendo Switch details, today is your lucky day (well, technically tomorrow, if you live anywhere east of the Eastern Time Zone). Nintendo is holding a press event in Tokyo about the company’s upcoming hybrid console, and is livestreaming it for the world to see.

Known as the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017, the event will begin at 11 p.m. ET; Nintendo has not announced how long it will be. It will be broadcast live on the internet from Tokyo Big Sight, the largest convention center in Japan. Don’t worry — the video above will be in English, not Japanese.

The presentation will be the first time Nintendo has offered specifics about the Switch since the company revealed the system with a three-minute video in October. For more on what to expect from the event, check out our primer.
