Update: The story below was based on a new trailer released through Nintendo UK. Since publication, a US ad has been revealed which will run during Super Bowl 51 this weekend (5 February).

It will be Nintendo's first ever Super Bowl ad, and one of very few that have ever aired for video games. In recent years, most gaming ads have been for mobile titles like Clash of Clans and Game of War.

Last year, it cost companies around $5 million to air an ad during the game, which in 2016 drew an audience of 167 million people in the US alone.

The footage used in the trailer (embedded below) is different to that in the UK trailer, but similar in style and what's going on on-screen. There's also an extended cut embedded at the foot of the story.

Original story: Nintendo has released a new trailer for its new console Nintendo Switch, showing off the many ways to play the home and handheld hybrid console and offering a fresh look at upcoming exclusives Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2 and Arms.

The video (embedded below, after the Super Bowl ads) starts off with launch title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild being played on a television set before the user removes the Switch from its dock and continues playing on a bus. He then uses a stand to play it in tabletop mode with the Joy-Con grip.

First party fighting game Arms is seen next, with focus on its motion-control input (it will also support traditional controllers) thanks to Switch's Joy-Con controllers, which slot onto either side of the Switch screen but also function separately.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is up next, used in handheld mode and tabletop mode. In tabletop mode individual Joy-Cons are used as simple, traditional controllers for local multiplayer. Switch also supports local multiplayer between up-to eight individual Switch devices.

This is shown off with a group of students playing Splatoon 2.

Launch title 1-2 Switch, a collection of motion-control mini-games, was given a decent amount of time in the trailer, which showed off some new mini-games including a sword fighting game, a game in which players use a Joy-Con like an electric shaver, and another which appears to be a pass the parcel-style game but with a virtual bottle of champagne.

Previously confirmed games like a cowboy showdown and the infamous cow-milking game also appear.

Nintendo Switch was announced in October 2016, with details regarding its line-up, price and what exactly it is revealed during a much-hyped press conference that took place in January. Nintendo Switch launches on 3 March for £279.99.

Following Zelda and 1-2 Switch, Arms will be released in spring, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will be released on 28 April and Splatoon 2 will be released in summer. Other first party Switch games Nintendo has announced include Snipperclips and Super Mario Odyssey, which is expected to release at the end of the year.
