Here’s the extended cut commercial for the Nintendo Switch, which will premiere during Super Bowl LI.

The new Nintendo Switch commercial basically shows what we’ve already seen, but that isn’t a bad thing by any means. The one that they’ll be broadcasting at Super Bowl LI is only 30 seconds long. But, the extended cut we have here shows much more.

Before we talk about what’s shown in the new commercial, let it be known that this is an incredible marketing strategy for Nintendo. The Super Bowl is one the most watched events of the year. A big reason everyone watches it is for the commercials. Things like hilarious skits and short movie trailers are all revealed and it’s an all-around good time.

The 30 second commercial focuses heavily on the much anticipated game, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This is genius, considering that Nintendo is relying on this game to help push sales for the Switch.

In the commercial, you see the man in the video wake up, grab the console and just play from his bed. If he wants to go make breakfast, he can also do that while playing the Switch. Finally, when he’s ready to sit down and play, he puts the console on the dock and plays from the comfort of his couch on the TV.

It doesn’t get any better than that. But, as stated above, we’ll be showing you the extended cut. Check it out below:

This extended commercial shows a bit more. Much of the focus is on the multiplayer aspect. You see groups of friends gathering together to play games like 1-2 Switch, ARMS, and Just Dance 2017. We also see glimpses of Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers.

Next: Donkey Kong 64 still has secrets

The Nintendo Switch will launch on March 3, 2017.
