Watch our first 10 minutes with Nintendo Switch: unboxing, set up, making a Mii, Zelda, and happy menu sound effects

We've been looking forward to those sweet first moments with Nintendo Switch ever since we knew it solely as a pile of leaks, patents, and the initials "NX". Now you can come along for our first 10 minutes with the new system: carefully removing the plastic wrap, plugging it in, navigating unfamiliar menus that will become second nature in just days' time, and almost playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Yeah, unfortunately we're not allowed to actually show us playing any games yet. But hey, it's a Nintendo console! All those cheerful little sound effects and cute illustrations practically make the setup process a game in and of itself, right? That's what I'm going to keep telling myself, anyway.

Seen something newsworthy? Tell us!
