Nintendo Switch is still quite a few months away, and while the game console is expected to launch in March, Nintendo haven’t released any big details about it quite yet.

To help things out, the Treehouse Live crew also held a livestream event today where they showcased several of the new games and items coming to the Nintendo Switch. Here are all the details we learned from the presentation.
