Video: Get your first look at a live demo of the Nintendo Switch

Come March 2017 the Nintendo Switch will be available at retailers around the world, and we can confirm that we’ve been in touch with Nintendo South Africa and said that they expect it to be available in stores locally on the global launch day too. So, considering that this unit will likely be launching in just over 4 months it perhaps time to get our first real look at it in action.

We’ve all seen the Nintendo Switch promotional reveal video, but we’re yet to see it being played in the flesh. Jimmy Fallon had the opportunity to do just that in his latest show and you can watch it below. You’ll first get to witness Super Mario Run in action, which looks great, and then it’s on to the Nintendo Switch running The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We can’t help but feel that this could be a return to traditional games for Nintendo, and with rumours that it’ll be playing Nintendo GameCube games on the virtual console service we could be in for something special.

Married to a gamer wife who kicks my ass at most shooters. If it's got analogue thingies, with buttons that's connected to a big box I'll play it no matter the format.
