Nintendo Switch Gets TV Debut On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
Fans of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon were in for a treat after they saw with their own eyes what the Nintendo Switch looked like and how it worked.
The episode of the talk show which aired a day ago was actually supposed to feature the new Super Mario Run mobile game. The show's special guest was Reggie Fils-Aime, the president of Nintendo America.
Fils-Aime was on hand to discuss the Super Mario Run but surprised everyone including Fallon (supposedly) by unveiling the Nintendo Switch which was just sitting on the table in front of them under a box designed as a Coin Block from the popular Super Mario games.

Before the surprise unveiling, Fallon got to play the new mobile game. Staying true to his personality, the talk show host/actor was screaming like a little kid who got a x10 score at the Goal Pole for the first time. He got x7, by the way.
Reggie also announced that SuperMario Run will launch on Dec. 15 but a series of demo runs will be done in Apple stores all over the world starting Thursday.
"I'm geeking out right now!"
Fallon best described the feeling of finally seeing the much-awaited console. The self-confessed video game geek was giddy with excitement as Fils-Aime revealed what was under the Coin Block.
Jimmy also became the first person outside of Nintendo personalities (most likely) to hold the gadget and play a game albeit for a while. The talk show host got to play the new "The Legend of Zelda" game where he got Link to do a shield slide.
The Switch was officially announced in October and is scheduled for a March 2017 release.
The much-loved episode (the YouTube clip has garnered more than 1.8 million views as of this writing) also had Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of iconic video games Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, and The Legend of Zelda, as guest. Miyamoto sat in the audience and gave Fallon a thumbs-up for his performance playing Super Mario Run. The Japanese gaming icon also played the Super Mario Theme with The Roots.
