The Nintendo Switch is finally here! After months of hype and teases, the newest home console has hit the market. I wasn’t able to get my hands on a pre-order but my friend Ryan from Blueshirts Breakaway was. He was kind enough to record an unboxing video of the console, pro controller, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Without any further delay, let’s dig into Nintendo’s newest console and see what your purchase gets you.
