While rumours about the price of the Nintendo Switch have us just a little confused, it’s not stopping us from counting down the days until the console’s release.

But warning: watching said clip will invoke some serious ’80s nostalgia.

Titled as an ‘Anime Opening’, the 30-second video features a host of popular gaming consoles throughout time, taking us from the humble Nintendo 64 and original PlayStation console right through to more modern phenomena such as the PS4, Wii and Xbox in an ode to the Transformers cartoon.

While this trailer has got our nostalgic Nintendo cravings at peak level, we’re more excited by the prospect of sampling potential Switch demos that may be available before launch.

Especially if the rumours about a bunch of add-on accessories (hopefully VR) turn out to be true too.

Alas, we’ll have to wait until January 13, 2017, when we will find out loads more at Nintendo’s major Switch presentation.
