Not many are fans of official unboxing videos for products, and the Nintendo Switch is no exception.

Watch on YouTube

Although Nintendo released an official Switch unboxing video recently, it was more buttoned-up and serious than these tend to be.

Fear not, our man Alex is here to the rescue with his own unboxing. Here you’ll find a look at the box, all the items that come with it, as well as the console itself. The video offers a great way to appreciate everything up close, away from the noise of the hands-on event.

The Joy-Con controllers also get their own segment, as does the dock. We also get a few size comparisons showing the Joy-Con Grip next to a Wii U Pro Controller, Xbox One, and PS4 controller.

It all looks very well-built and elegant, unlike the Wii U GamePad.

The Nintendo Switch is out starting March 3.
