Nintendo Switch

Nintendo went into the Tonight Show to showcase their upcoming mobile game Super Mario Run, but they had one more surprise up their sleeve: the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime showcased the Switch for the first time on a public stage, and let Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon play a little bit of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. While the footage was completely off-screen, we were able to see the game played on both the big screen and the Switch’s portable screen. While nothing completely new was shown off, it’s nice to finally see the game running on Nintendo’s upcoming system. Check out the entire Tonight Show segment below.

    Jimmy Fallon is such a child to the point of cringe. Still, glad that Nintendo used the opportunity to show off the Switch. They should allow developers to talk about their games in the recent future.

    Glad the switch was shown!!

    The portable screen looks great so far – so thin. Looking forward to more info in January.

    Oh, I see, so this is the second ad video. I still have no interest in this.
