Ever since the first trailer for the Nintendo Switch came out, people have wondered how exactly would the games look like in the hybrid console. Jimmy Fallon helps out in that regard when he gets a hands-on look at the Switch.


The video first previews the Super Mario Run mobile game that will soon be available for iOS. In the second half, President of Nintendo of America Reggie Fils-Aimé reveals the much-awaited Nintendo Switch and guides Jimmy on a short play-through of “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.” It is the first time that the Switch has been seen on broadcast and outside of the official trailer.

Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of Mario, also has a little surprise of his own as he plays the “Super Mario Bros.” theme with the rest of the show’s band.
