The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of the Wild Shown Running on Nintendo Switch for the First Time

on December 8, 2016 12:40 AM

Today, during Jimmy Fallon’s tonight show, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé showcased The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild running on Nintendo Switch for the first time.

The game was shown both on the big screen, and on the portable unit, showcasing both a brief glimple on gameplay and the “switching” of the console between docked home unit and handheld unit in real time. You can see the recording below.

You can also see a bit of Super Mario Run as well, but I’m quite sure that’s not what you’re here for.  You can check out The Legend of Zelda’s gameplay, Reggie gloating and Jimmy Fallon freaking out starting at the 6:00 mark.

Incidentally, this is the first time that we actually get to see the back of the console, and you can check out a still at the bottom of the post.

If you want to see more of the new Zelda, you can find more gameplay footage (on Wii U) from The Game Awards.

The Nintendo Switch was revealed with a brief video on October 20th, and we’ll see more about it during a livestreamed presentation scheduled for January 12th.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
