Today, Nintendo’s latest piece of hardware, the Switch, launches to the masses. And to celebrate, Nintendo has released two new trailers/commercials that highlight the console’s ability to play on the go or at home.

Both trailers/commercials are 30 seconds long and showcase the Switch’s portability, as well as its versatility in regards to all the different places it can be played away from home. One trailer features footage from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and shows that you can race anywhere, anytime with the Switch.

The other trailer also features footage of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, as well as footage from ARMS. This trailer essentially drives home the same message.
