Nintendo and Tencent have announced a joint press conference about the launch of the Nintendo Switch in China. They have set the event for August 2 in Shanghai.
Serkan Toto, a game analyst in Japan, tweeted that invitations have gone out. Nintendo and Tencent announced in April that Tencent, the world’s biggest gaming company and a giant internet firm in China, will jointly launch the Switch in the Chinese market.
The launch will be a test of the Chinese appetite for consoles, as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One haven’t set the world on fire. Those consoles in 2015 and 2014, respectively.
