Nintendo just gave a huge presentation for the Switch, its newest console. The first three pieces of critical info: March 3 release date, $300 cost, $60 per game. It's available for pre-order at multiple mainstream locations, although many are either running out of stock or having technical issues or second thoughts.

The Nintendo Switch is the first Nintendo console since 2012's Wii U, itself an upgrade on 2006's standard Wii. It's been almost 32 years since the company hit the home console market with the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1986. (#FBF: our NY Comic Con celebration of the console's 30th bday!)

Click through to watch trailers for TK early Nintendo Switch titles, including Super Mario Odyssey (for some reason takes our plumber hero to NYC), The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Sonic Mania, Puyo Puyo Tetris and a boxing game called ARMS. Below, see the full Jan. 13 presentation; things really get going at the 33-minute mark:
