Three Japanese Nintendo Switch Commercials

It’s hard to believe we’re just a little over three weeks from the Nintendo Switch being released! We’ve seen plenty of commercials and trailers in North America and Europe, but Japan has remained strangely quiet – until now! Three new 30-second commercials were just revealed. They do a fantastic job of conveying exactly what the Nintendo Switch is capable of and showcase some of the best games coming to the system.



With Splatoon being such a smashing success in Japan, it’s not a surprise that Nintendo is using the sequel to sell the Switch. The game won’t be available until later this summer, but it’s sure to catch Japanese gamers’ attention when they see the commercial air on TV. The Nintendo Switch and Zelda both release worldwide on March 3, 2017.

As always, we have loads more videos and screens and more at our preview pages: Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
