Nintendo announced that they’ll be running their first Super Bowl ad on February 5th. The 30-second spot will feature both the Nintendo Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Sounds like Nintendo is finally going to properly advertise their products…you know, beyond a direct video…

“The most anticipated video game system and video game of the year will be seen on the biggest stage of the year,” said Nicolas Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Vice President of Marketing. “Nintendo Switch will change how, when and where people play games. It’s only fitting that we’re changing how, when and where we advertise those games.”

The ad is scheduled to run during the game’s fourth quarter. That said, an extended version of the ad can be viewed below:

The Nintendo Switch will be released on March 3rd. Feel free to check back here as we continue to follow all things Nintendo!
