While it may seem strange to do something of a retrospective on a console as new as the Nintendo Switch, YouTube channel Scott The Woz looks at the history of the tech before it was even known as the Switch.

In just over twenty minutes you’ll see a history of the Switch from Nintendo announcing its development under the code name NX in 2015, all the way up to the release two years later.

Between those two announcements the internet was flooded by news, some real and some fake, of what the NX would be, as well as a healthy dose of CGI tricks and fake mockups.

The video only covers events up to the release, so it doesn’t touch on our favourite bit of fakery in the convincing 3D print that fooled so many people.

Regardless, this is a really interesting piece of gaming history, especially for those who ignored the Switch right up until it became so popular.
