It was only a matter of time. We rode a roller coaster of emotion and hype yesterday after learning that someone had received their Nintendo Switch early. This wasn't a journalist, insider, or celebrity; this was some random dude who was luck enough to have his Nintendo Switch shipped two weeks before it was supposed to, and he came through with a video of the operating system in action. We have the whole thing for you right here.
After all of this ended up breaking, the folks over at FloKO reached out to the guy (known as "hiphoptherobot" on NeoGAF) to put together the world's first Nintendo Switch unboxing video. He obliged (what a guy!) and now we have the the unboxing video for you right here.
The beginning might be my favorite part, as we get a fantastic, clean, candid look at the Nintendo Switch box. Nintendo has always been a little bit like Apple in the way that they package their products in such a way that they're almost as fun to behold as they are to open and unwrap.
Once the box is opened up we're greeted immediately by the Nintendo Switch and JoyCon controllers. Nintendo knows that these guys are the stars of the show, and made sure that consumers didn't have to wade through layers of cardboard and plastic before they saw what they spent money on. Open the flap and bam! There's your new console.
We get a great look at the dock and how the back flap opens up for the AC and HDMI cables. Everything looks really tidy. When it's all said and done, we get another tour of the OS and some of the options that we didn't see the first time around.
So what do you think? Looks pretty sleek, right? After today we only have one more Friday without the Switch, so buckle in for this last week of hype!
