    On October 20, Nintendo revealed its newest gaming platform, Switch, but we won't learn about its technical specifications, how much it will cost, or whether games will be region-locked until 2017, according to the Wall Street Journal's Takashi Mochizuki.

    Posting on Twitter, Mochizuki, the publication's Tokyo-based technology reporter, said Nintendo won't be provided any further Switch information this year.

    Nintendo: no more official announcement would come this year on 1) game titles 2) spec details, including region-lock status.

    Nintendo Switch is a console and handheld hybrid device, as rumors prior to its official unveiling suggested it would be. It features a tablet-like screen that sits in a "Nintendo Switch Dock" and connects it to a TV for traditional couch gaming.

    When the tablet is lifted out of the dock it will "instantly" transition into a portable mode for playing games on the go. It also uses detachable controllers called "Joy-Cons," and these can attach onto the sides of the tablet or onto a "Grip" accessory so that it's "mirroring a more traditional controller."

    "One player can use a Joy-Con controller in each hand; two players can each take one; or multiple Joy-Con can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options," Nintendo said in a press release.

    Nvidia confirmed in its own blog post that the console uses a custom Tegra processor. "The high-efficiency scalable processor includes an Nvidia GPU based on the same architecture as the world's top-performing GeForce gaming graphics cards," it said.

    It was previously confirmed that the Nintendo Switch release date will be in March of 2017. You can read more Nintendo Switch details here.
