Jimmy Fallon Demos the Nintendo Switch

I can’t imagine a talk show host introducing this other than Jimmy Fallon.

Some takeaways:

  • Note how Apple has quite a presence in the marketing of Super Mario Run. Reggie Fils-Aimé notes how the game will only be available on iOS devices, and that demos will be taking place at Apple Stores. That latter bit reminds me of how Apple wants their stores to be more than just places to buy products.
  • Speaking of which, Apple held an event of some sort with Shigeru Miyamoto at their SoHo store. Hopefully Apple and Nintendo’s relationship pans out well in the long run – this is such a great start.
  • Fils-Aimé mentions how big the world of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is, which I find kind of odd given how many games are out now with vast worlds that look infinitely more detailed than this. Still, it’s got magnificent sights and I’m sure it has a lot more to offer than meets the eye.
  • The colors on the screen of the tablet component seem to be washed-out – not just by a bit, but by a lot. I really hope it’s just the camera, cause a vibrant game like Breath of the Wild deserves a colorful display.
  • Also, this.
