Coming up at 3pm:

Nintendo announce their next videogame console, off the back of the commercial disappointments of the tablet-based Wii U.

Codenamed NX, it launches in March, and is rumoured to be a hybrid of home and portable consoles.

Expect: a new name, early looks at games and explanation of the tech. All will be revealed in an episode of Nintendo Direct, the company’s online video magazine, going up shortly.

More as we have it.

Just announced this minute on Nintendo of America’s online presence, but not Europe’s for some odd reason, despite being heavily advertised across the company’s UK social media.

Say hello to the Nintendo Switch – a game console playable across several form-factors, from home console, to handheld device, to novel self-contained mini-machine.

      I was not impressed with them pulling the plug on their Wii console Mario Kart online game servers. That was BRILLIANT and a great way to continue playing after conquering everything else in the game. I know the reason was to make people buy the new console/mariokart but that reason alone makes me never want to buy a nintendo product again cos they’ll just pull the plug on it if they want you to buy their new stuff.

    Mario Kart Wii is over eight years old.
    I think you got value for money, and a free steering wheel attachment.
