The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon gifted the yet-to-be-released Nintendo Switch console its live TV debut last night, showcasing how the system works and new gameplay from Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The almost 10-minute-long feature saw the President of Nintendo America, Reggie Fils-Aimé, guiding Jimmy first through Super Mario Run on the iPhone (Reggie also announced you can visit Apple Stores worldwide and try out a demo version of Mario before it launches December 15,) before debuting the Nintendo Switch game system by playing the upcoming Zelda in front of its creator, Shigeru Miyamoto.

There wasn't a lot of new information (you can find out everything we know about the Switch, here) but it was nice to see Jimmy so excited about the new console — just like the rest of us — as well as seeing another demonstration as to how the portable functionality will work when the Switch finally launches in March, 2017.

Watch the full video above (skip to 04:59 for the Switch,) then don't miss Shigeru Miyamoto playing the Mario theme song with The Roots band below.
