According to Scandinavian developer Image & Form, Nintendo isn’t holding back on the power of the upcoming Nintendo Switch. The developer has “no concerns” when it comes to the comfort of Nintendo’s upcoming platform.

Image & Form, developer of the SteamWorld franchise, is currently working on an unannounced Nintendo Switch title and the developer was asked about the looks and specs of Nintendo’s upcoming new platform. As expected, the studio didn’t comment on the Switch’s specs, but they did state that Nintendo is “definitely not skimping on power!”

According to Image & Form, they have had a Nintendo Switch development kit since early 2016, and while they can’t talk about the platform too much without breaking NDA, they stated that the Switch and its controls feel “great” when holding it. “You’ll be pleased when you hold it”, the studio said.

The studio adds that they have “no concerns” when it comes to weight/heft in portable mode. Also, the studio doesn’t seem to worry about the comfort of the Switch’s detachable Joy-Con controllers.

The Scandinavian developer also shared something about the Switch’s display, which is supposed to be “great” and people won’t be disappointed by it.

Nintendo hasn’t fully detailed its upcoming new platform but is expected to do so during the special Nintendo Switch Presentation in January 2017.

In a presentation to financial analysts today in Tokyo, Nintendo Co., Ltd. president Tatsumi Kimishima announced that major details regarding the company’s new Nintendo Switch home gaming system will be shared at the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017. This will be an event for invited media, financial analysts and trade partners in Tokyo that will be globally livestreamed on Jan. 12, U.S. time. The presentation will include the launch date and pricing for Nintendo Switch, as well as a look at the lineup of games currently in development.

Recent rumors suggest that the Switch uses a 720P 6.2″multi-touch display and is said to sport a NVIDIA GPU based on the Pascal “Parker” technology. Additionally, insiders claim that the Switch will come with 32GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM. Of course, as with all rumors and claims, these reports have to be taken with a pinch of salt for now.
