Feast your eyes on this Switch unboxing video, courtesy of the same early shipping mistake as before

17 Feb

Switch is in the wild. One can only imagine the conversation between Nintendo and its retail partners tomorrow.

Switch hopefuls can torment themselves with a further tantalising glimpse of the hardware as it will appear in their very own homes when Switch launches in a few weeks.

This video comes courtesy of the same source as the Switch start up UI and OS overview video from earlier today, which was provided exclusively to FloKo. Unfortunately the site is being hammered, and we weren’t able to get the page to load – hence the YouTube mirror above.

The unboxing itself is pretty standard fare – all the bits are in there, enfolded in that mysteriously labyrinthine packaging digital devices favour – but stay right to the end for an additional look at the Switch menus, for those of you wanting to pore over the hardware settings immediately.

This Switch was reportedly shipped to the lucky new owner by a retailer, which has not been named, rather than leaked or otherwise acquired from the distribution chain. If that’s true, someone’s going to have answer some pointed questions tomorrow. I’d hate to be the poor schmoe who put this in the post, even if the order came down from on high.
