Nintendo Switch Buyer Gets Device Early; Video Shows How Real Switch Works
A Nintendo Switch customer who pre-ordered the gaming platform unexpectedly received it two weeks earlier. He proudly showed his new toy giving viewers a closer insight on how to operate the device.
A Fortunate Delivery Snafu
NeofGAF user hiphoptherobot unexpectedly received his Nintendo Switch package early. He didn't name the store that shipped it probably to avoid putting the retailer in trouble. The happy customer though was glad enough to show it for the rest of the world to see. Viewers couldn't be blamed if they feel a tinge of envy while watching the video.
Unofficial Video Presentation
The two-and-a-half minute video showed the manipulation of the various controls. The opening menu asked users what language they want to use. Curiously, the Switch asked about the user's region. It could be recalled that Nintendo previously announced that the Switch games are region-free. Anyway, the user will have to agree with End user agreement too.
The device continues with a series of checklists including the Joy-cons. The user will then proceed with setting up the icon and nickname. The Switch also allows several users to handle the device but each of them must register first. Parental controls are also there although the owner has the option of skipping it.
Once the setup is complete and there's an internet connection, user will have to access to the Nintendo eShop. Unfortunately, the leaker could not show him playing a game in the Switch since there's no bundled game included. The official launch is also two weeks away which means no related games are available for download yet.
Still, it gives Nintendo Switch fans an idea on how the gaming device looked up close without the fanfare. This homemade video will most likely whet the appetites of the fans. Come to think of it, this seems to be the best Switch advertisement yet.
