After previously submitting a request to the Chinese government, Nintendo has officially announced its partnership with Chinese conglomerate Tencent to sell the Switch in China. In a very short PR release on its website, Nintendo stated (translated from Japanese) that “Nintendo Co., Ltd. is announcing that a collaboration is in progress with Tencent Holdings Limited (HQ: Shenzhen, China; Chairman of the Board and CEO: Ma Huateng) to release the Nintendo Switch video game system in China.”

That’s all the info we know currently. The details of the partnership, what it entails, and how the revenue will be split up has yet to be divulged. Stay wired for more information about the partnership as it comes out.
