Jimmy Fallon Tries Out New Nintendo Games On “Late Night”

Late night star Jimmy Fallon just got the opportunity to try out two of Nintendo’s hottest games on a recent airing of the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. In addition to playing a few games, Fallon also got the chance to meet Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of some of the greatest games in Nintendo’s long history.


Reggie Fils-Aime, the head of Nintendo’s American branch, first told Fallon that “Super Mario Run” will be the first time the famous Italian plumber makes an appearance on mobile devices. Fils-Aime went on to say there are three modes to this game, including “World’s Tour,” “Kingdom Builder,” and “Toad Rally.”


Before Fallon started playing, Fils-Aime pointed out Miyamoto in the audience. Fallon, who is a huge video game fan, immediately started bowing towards Miyamoto and said he is Miyamoto’s “biggest fan.”


Fallon was able to get quite a few special coins and the invincibility star while playing one level of “World’s Tour.” After he made it successfully to the end of the level, Miyamoto gave Fallon a big thumb’s up.


After playing “Super Mario Run,” Fils-Aime said he had one more surprise for Fallon. Fils-Aime told Fallon he could play “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” on the yet to be released Nintendo Switch device.


After showing off a bit of the game on the big screen, Fils-Aime took a mobile unit out of the Nintendo Switch and allowed Fallon to play for a bit. Gamers, Fils-Aime said, will be able to play both at home or on the mobile Switch device.


The Nintendo Switch will be released in March of 2017.
