The Nintendo Switch Was a Tonight Show Guest & It Was Awesome

On The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé debuted Super Mario Run – following it up with a switch to something a little more our speed.

Following a bit of Super Mario Run gameplay live on the show, Jimmy Fallon is surprised by Mr. Fils-Aimé as he announces one more surprise and busts out a Nintendo Switch from under a very Super Mario-looking question mark block. That’s not the best part however, as not only do we get to see the Switch in action… but they play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild!

Check it out for yourself below;



After a look like that – something obviously not simulated like the trailer was – are you more hyped? I’ve got to admit that I’m a bit more anxious to get my hands on the system now that I’ve actually seen one working, and though it’s completely out of the question I’m secretly hoping that the January 12th event becomes a stealth launch.

Please, for the love of all things holy gaming, let it be a stealth launch. 😛
