The Super Bowl, the most important American football event of the year, is next Sunday. Companies around the world have begun to prepare ads for the millions of people who’ll tune in to cheer on their teams and for those who’re there just to see the amusing commercials. With the Nintendo Switch launching next month, the folks at Nintendo have also prepared an ad to be broadcast during the momentous event.
The short, Super Bowl LI TV spot shows someone playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on their Nintendo Switch’s portable mode, before docking the system and taking the action to the big screen.
An extended cut of the ad is a little longer and shows more games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms, and 1-2-Switch. The power-struggle minigame in 1-2-Switch makes a year for some sort of Harry Potter game on the Switch. Moving your hands around in certain ways to see who can correctly cast a spell first would be pretty fun!
