Nintendo will air a special installment of Treehouse Live dedicated to Nintendo Switch games, the company announced. The livestream will kick off on Twitch and YouTube on Jan. 13 at 9:30 a.m. ET, just hours after Nintendo’s hotly anticipated Nintendo Switch press conference.

In a tweet, Nintendo of America promised that fans would be treated to “an in-depth look at upcoming games featured in the Nintendo Switch Presentation.” It’s unknown whether that’s limited to launch titles or other games that will hit the console later in the year.

We know a bit of what to expect from the Nintendo Switch live event, which airs at 11 p.m. ET on Jan. 12, straight from Tokyo. Nintendo has promised details on the console’s release date, price and launch titles. Following the conference is a hands-on event for press and, later that weekend, the public in New York City. The Switch will then hit the road throughout the winter.

The Switch is due sometime this March, and games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are expected to follow shortly thereafter, if not on launch day.

There have been several rumors and fake leaks surrounding the Switch’s launch library as of late, leading many to come up with their own Switch games in response. It’s one way that Nintendo fans are passing the time in the lead-up to the company’s official reveal of everything we want to know about the console.
