An early look at the Nintendo Switch setup and UI


Someone got their Switch early

One lucky person was able to secure a Nintendo Switch two weeks ahead of schedule. Posting to NeoGAF, user hiphoptherobot has shared footage of the console’s setup process and given curious fans a quick scroll through the various system options and user-interface elements.

To be honest, there isn’t a whole lot going on in this video (though it is interesting how much the Switch downplays Miis). But because Nintendo has been tight-lipped about the Switch and we’re so dang close to launch, folks are antsy, and that has led to excitement. I mean, I’m right there with you!

“I just happened to get lucky because [an] unnamed store decided to ship early for whatever reason,” hiphop wrote, adding that he doesn’t have any games yet, so all he can do is “flip through the menus.”
