And Miyamoto played with The Roots.

Reggie Fils-Aime and Shigeru Miyamoto helped steal the show last night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

In addition to showing footage of Super Mario Run and announcing demos for the game at Apple stores, Fils-Aime also produced a Nintendo Switch which showed The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild playable.

Shigeru Miyamoto also got to aid The Tonight Show's house band The Roots in a rendition of the Super Mario Bros. athletic theme.

Minor correction, it's Reggie Fils-Aime.

This is what Nintendo needs to be doing, getting some mainstream exposure for their products. This is what helped make Wii the massive seller it was, appearing on shows like The Tonight Show and Ellen.

Hate to be "that person", but I mean, they also showed off Wii U at a Jimmy Fallon show... Though Fallon's audience has surely grown by now and they didn't show off any gameplay at that Wii U reveal, so hopefully things won't be too comparable haha.

I thought it was pretty good. I will definitely get the Switch version of BotW now.

Lot of people speculating it was running at 60 fps on the Switch. Even when they switched to the controller.

That was exciting.
Man I wish I was Jimmy Fallon.

I always feel like Fallon is just way too over excited all the time, but that seemed pretty close to how I'd feel about getting to play Breath of the Wild on the Switch.
