Switch makes its US debut live on Jimmy Fallon.

Watch on YouTube

Nintendo brought Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon today, and you can watch that happening above.

The video starts with a look at Super Mario Run, Nintendo’s new mobile game, but from about 4:50 we’re into Switch territory. You get to see the console transform mid-game.

Legendary Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto was in the audience, and Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime demonstrated the console and mobile game, and it seems like Fallon didn’t know what was coming, and had a full on geek out about it.

This is our first live look at the hardware; the debut trailer was all pre-recorded footage, but noiw here’s the hardware actually working in the wild. It’s really happening! Switch is coming in March 2017! It’s all really real.
