Nintendo’s got a new game console in the works — it’s called Nintendo Switch, and it’s slated to launch in March 2017. It’s a home console and a handheld portable console, all in one:
So far, Nintendo’s shown off the console in a single debut video. That is until last night, when the console made a surprise appearance on “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.”
Fallon then proceeded to completely lose his mind with excitement, exclaiming, “I’m geeking out right now!” many, many times.
More importantly, Fallon went on to play “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” on the Nintendo Switch — the first time anyone’s seen the game running on Nintendo’s new hardware.
Though we don’t know when exactly the game will release, aside from a general “2017” launch, you probably shouldn’t expect “Breath of the Wild” to launch alongside Nintendo’s next big console in March. Not only is it a huge open-world game, but it’s said to be incredibly ambitious for the series; thus, the game is unlikely to be ready in time for the Switch’s debut.
That said, you probably wanna see the game in action right now, don’t you? Good news! Fallon and Nintendo America president Reggie Fils-Aime played a little bit of the game live. Check it out right here:
