'The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild' On Nintendo Switch Release Date: Experienced First Hand By Jimmy Fallon In 'The Tonight Show'

Avid game players cannot believe that the so-called game console of the future is already here - for them to play with soon. Not the mythical hypothetical device from the future but the real thing. On "The Tonight Show," Jimmy Fallon got his hands on the Nintendo Switch. 

Jimmy Fallon starts off with the legendary "Super Mario Run," which he really had fun playing, before proceeding to play "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" on the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Switch's launch is scheduled sometime in March 2017. "Breath of the Wild" episode of Zelda will also be released the same year, but the actual date is not announced yet, according to Kotaku.

"The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon demonstrated for the very first time "The Nintendo Switch" magic. It was certainly an exciting time for Fallon as well as the fans who have been searching online for possible details of the new gaming console. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime directed Fallon who was freaking out with his one of a kind moment.

The show features both the big screen visibility and the hand-held viewing of the Nintendo Switch. The game was on the screen at first  while the device is docked on the platform. Its sensitivity has been displayed when Fils-Aime removed the Switch from its dock, it took seconds only to resume the game on the tablet itself. 

There was a slight interruption during the brief gameplay demonstration, and the question of its being instantaneous has been raised by critics. There are speculations that it's likely that editing happens on the screen's post-filming. Smoothness and quickness of ‘such switch' could be exaggerated. Based on what is seen so far, fans are already satisfied getting the confirmation that it's indeed real, based on the story of Polygon.

One thing that really made fans delighted with Nintendo Switch is its compatibility with GameCube games. In fact, three games are ready and believed to be built-in to the device such as "Super Mario Sunshine," "Luigi's Mansion," and "Super Smash Bros. Melee," according to an earlier report here on Jobs & Hire.
