Nintendo Switch Trailer – Play Anytime, Anywhere With Anyone

Nintendo UK has created a 5-minute trailer showcasing some of the fun things you can do with the Nintendo Switch. Most of them revolve around getting together with your friends in various places and playing the Switch. Although Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 are shown here, the video does put a bit of a focus on 1-2 Switch.

 

 

In fact, there are a few activities shown from that game that I hadn’t seen before. There’s a mini-game that has you shake a champagne bottle and then give the Joy-Con to the person next to you. They do the same and pass it along to another player. The goal is to not get caught holding the Joy-Con when the bottle bursts. Another mini-game has players setting the Joy-Cons down and then staring each other in the eyes. As soon as the phone rings on the Switch, the players rush to see who can answer first.

Small snippets of this trailer have appeared in some of the other ads released already. It’s fun to see them all together in one long trailer.

The Nintendo Switch releases worldwide on March 3, 2017. It will retail for $299.99 in the U.S. and launches with two first-party games: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and 1-2 Switch. Below is an updated graphic showing the various games in development:
