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.
