Nintendo of America put up the English version of the hardware overview trailer:


[Original Article]:

NCL (Nintendo of Japan) uploaded two new videos today. The first one showcases the Nintendo Switch hardware and the different Play Styles (Handheld, Tabletop, and TV). At first we thought this was the same video they showed at the Nintendo Switch Event in January, but it turns out it’s an extended version that shows a few more details, like the Joy-Con HD Rumble. While the video is completely in Japanese, it’s easily understandable by the visuals.



The second video is of 1-2 Switch. Nintendo took some video of people playing the game at one of its hands-on events in Japan. If you like to watch people do strange things, then this one’s for you!



Both the Nintendo Switch and 1-2 Switch come out on March 3, 2017. For more information, check out our preview page.
