Nintendo’s Super Bowl Switch Commercial Features Breath of the Wild

It’s no surprise that Nintendo is releasing a Switch commercial during the Super Bowl, the world’s most watched television event. They have created a 30 second ad spot that highlights the switch and Breath of the Wild specifically, which follows up their commercial last year for Pokemon GO. The commercial itself is interesting, as it unveils the names of two bosses in Breath of the Wild. They also released an extended version that includes many other games, including a long highlight on 1 2 Switch. This will likely not air during the Super Bowl, given its length. You can see the extended version below.
