Nintendo Switch User Interface Leaks After Retailer Breaks Street Date

Excitement continues to build around the world as the Nintendo Switch launch date nears, and, while the Nintendo Switch user interface has remained shrouded in mystery, we can now see it in entirety.

With expectation that a pre-launch Nintendo Direct would have spent time showcasing the user interface, it certainly came as a surprise when NeoGAF user hiphoptherobot revealed that an “unnamed store” had inadvertently shipped the console ridiculously early.

“… it isn’t like I grabbed it off the back of a truck or anything, I just happened to get lucky because unnamed store decided to ship early for whatever reason,” they had explained, when challenged as to how it somehow managed to land on their doorstep.

The shaky video, recorded in haste on a mobile, takes us through the setup process and account creation before taking a look at the separate menus that are lined across the HOME Menu screen. While there isn’t anything that comes as a particular surprise, the short video does confirm that Nintendo Switch will support Themes that users can personalise the console with.

Nintendo Switch will launch worldwide on Friday 3rd March, priced at £279.99 ($299.99).
