The much-anticipated Nintendo Switch was revealed on late night television, Wednesday night, during “Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show.” It was the first proper look at the gaming console that everybody wants to know about. Nintendo America’s Reggie Fils-Aimé treated viewers with the console’s functions via “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.”

Noted Japanese video game designer and producer, Shigeru Miyamoto, was sitting casually in the audience, watching the show proceed. He was soon introduced and the viewers were elated to see him. The experts started with a quick round of “Super Mario Run” on mobile and then it was time for Nintendo Switch, writes Gizmodo Australia.

The “Super Mario Run’s” three modes, Kingdom Builder, Toad Rally and World Tour, were shown and it was also revealed that they will be available globally in Apple stores ahead of the Dec. 15 release. The Nintendo Switch will release in March 2017 and more information on the console is expected on Jan. 14, 2017.

Fils-Aime joked that the reason he was on “Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show” was to teach Fallon how to play the “Super Mario Run” game ahead of its release. He also mentioned that beginning Thursday, anyone would be able to play a demo of the game in any Apple store. In a surprise, when the whole world was waiting for January 2017 for a glimpse of the Nintendo Switch, Fils-Aime unveiled the console, shocking everybody.

Next, Fallon started playing “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” first on the big screen and then moving on to the handheld, followed by Fils-Aime, writes CNET.

In case the Nintendo Switch console uses an NVIDIA Tegra X2 and not the Tegra X1 mobile processor and a Pascal GPU, it will have incredibly more power than other mobile-grade gaming devices.
