    Nintendo's very own Reggie Fils-Aimé and Shigeru Miyamoto appeared on the latest "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" to promote the upcoming Super Mario Run. As a surprise, Reggie brought the company's upcoming home console/handheld hybrid to the show, flawlessly running the upcoming installment in The Legend of Zelda series:

    It might be hard to realize that the console is actually a real thing coming in only a few months, after so many circulating rumors before its announcement and only an official introductory video released. But there it is, proof and all and it is actually our first live look at the machine in action. Reggie added that more details about the Switch will be shared on January 12th.

    Bonus video: watch the multi-talented Shigeru Miyamoto play the Super Mario Bros. theme live on guitar below:

    Lol Jimmy Fallon geeking out to much. He seemed rattled by Miyamoto being there.

    Oh look, Jimmy Fallon theatrically overreacting to everything he sees or hears.

    Zelda looks nice.

    Such a tiny screen to play such a vast game. Definitely looks awesome though!

    If you look at the bottom of the handheld you can see what looks like a USB-C port *Prays for quick charge*

    Fricking Jimmy Fallon is intolerable.
    I could only think why can't the asshole STFU during the whole video.
    Screaming like an annoying bad actor waiting for the paycheck.

    PS: I don't like Jimmy Fallon, in case it wasn't evident.

    Seriously, Jimmy who?
    Really nice unit, great screen and great fps. Take my wallet, Nintendo. Even if it's 400 cad.

    Lol people are ragging on Fallon for geeking out, but I'll be damned if he's not the one host who would absolutely know his shit on Switch already. xD

    Zelda looks enjoyable. Corny TMNT shit like that shield slide makes games fun af. Switch looks great as well. Much more seamless transition between output and portable mode than I expected.

    I just hate Fallon all around, not just in this piece, I just can't stand him as a host.
    The switch in the other hand looks good, it seems like a portable Wii U and that is right what I was wishing for.

    I actually do like the look of the New Nintendo Switch and I think it will be very successful! Whether the power of the unit will let it down with 3rd party developers like the wiiu did I'm not sure at this point but it might and I think that is where Nintendo goes wrong to much put into the innovation side and not enough under the hood, sadly to say that is cause I am a massive Nintendo fan since way back and I luv Miyamoto he's such a good sport!

    Fallon is one of the best host on TV. He's up there with Carson and Leno.
    I still expect the price point for the Switch to be around $250 - $300. Just my guess though.

    Sounds about right. $320 with tax at most.

    Where's captain angry from the previous hate train post? Let's see his take. I would really like to see Conan do a clueless gamer on this soon.
