Nintendo recently announced their new console, the Nintendo Switch, with an interesting video showcasing some features and potential titles for the machine. Now, they’re coming forward saying that none of the games shown are actually confirmed for the console.

A lot of games were shown during this trailer, ranging from a new Super Mario title, to Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Fans instantly starting noticing some inconsistencies within the video, and finally, Eurogamer connected with Nintendo to get some answers. When asked, Nintendo had this to say.

“This video is all about explaining how the Nintendo Switch works. We wanted to convey in a self-contained video how Nintendo Switch represents a new era for video game systems enjoyed in front of a TV, by letting gamers play anywhere, anytime, with anyone they choose. It adds the mobility of a portable system to the power of a home gaming system.

“At a later date, before the March launch, we’ll be talking about things like exact launch date, and of course, the games. You shouldn’t assume what you saw on the video represents actual game footage and further specifics on first-party games will be provided later.”

It does make sense that they would be reluctant to share too much info. Still, with the console launching in March, one has to ask how much time is needed to generate enough hype for a really strong launch. The trailer for the Nintendo Switch can be seen below.
