Cam-recorded Switch UI video surfaces [Update]

Switch out in the wild.


Switch isn’t due out until March 3, but someone has managed to get their hands on a unit now.

A video appeared online today showcasing user account creation on the device, as well as the user interface’s “News,” “Album,” “Controllers,” and “Settings” menus. In the Settings menu, the user switches the device’s theme from “Basic White” to “Basic Black.” The user also scrolls by a menu to create and edit Mii characters. When trying to access the Nintendo eShop, the user is prompted to perform a system update, but cancels.

Watch the video below. (MP4 download here, mirrors).

Thanks, NeoGAF.

Update 8:00 p.m.: has gone up with the first-ever unboxing of Switch, including a more detailed look at the user interface.
