The Nintendo Switch will sport a touchscreen after all, according to a report from Eurogamer.
Multiple sources (some of whom leaked the basic design of the console earlier this year) revealed to the outlet a number of features not covered in Nintendo's reveal video.
According to those sources, the screen measures 6.2 inches diagonally, runs at 720p resolution, and boasts 10-point capacitive multi-touch functionality (as compared to the Wii U and 3DS' single-point resistive screens).
Nintendo may have elected not to demonstrate the touchscreen in the video in order to avoid potential confusion with its existing touch-driven products.
Another question lies in how touch functionality would work when the device is docked with a TV; it is possible that IR and/or motion sensors in the JoyCon controller modules could provide a substitute.

The asymmetrical multiplayer shooter's servers will remain online, according to publisher and rights-holder 2K Games, but per a blog post from Turtle Rock co-founder Chris Ashton, the studio has been released from its contract on the game.
"This is the life of AAA game developers who aren't self-funded and don't own their own IP," wrote Ashton. "We don't get to make the call."
