The Nintendo NES Classic Edition Power Adaptor accepts the USB cord from the NES Classic console and allows users to draw power from any regular power outlet.

The Nintendo NES Classic Edition Gamepad Extension Cable adds 9.8 feet to the relatively short included Gamepad cable for the NES Classic.

Nintendo’s upcoming Switch console will be detailed during a live presentation from Tokyo on Jan. 12 starting at 11 p.m. EST.

The company is expected to deliver more details about the hardware, which serves as both a home console and portable console, during the “Tokyo webcast.” Among the news still waiting to be delivered are basics like the cost of the system and exact day in March the system is launching.

The next day, Nintendo is hosting a five-hour Switch event in New York City in which it will “further emphasize some of the details that Nintendo plans to announce.”

In October, Nintendo released a video unveiling the hybrid system. The Switch features two removable Joy-Con controllers that straddle the system’s screen and a dock that allows the system to connect to a television.

There’s more we don’t know about the system than we do. A series of patent applications filed by Nintendo also show some promising features that could be coming to the system including a gyroscope, GPS, touchscreen, compass, motion tracking, image recognition and the ability to project images onto a flat surface or hand.

We’ll be on site at the New York City event with all of the news live, so make sure you check back next week.
