Random: Nintendo once let a celebrity play Pokémon Legends: Arceus
As the holiday season approaches, Nintendo has asked celebrities to promote the Switch and its vast library of games in short commercials. So far there have been actors like Neil Patrick Harris and Jessica Alba playing games like Big Brain Academy and Mario Golf: Super Rush.
It turns out, however, that Nintendo also gave some of these superstars a chance to play games that haven’t even been released yet. According to Elle.com, singer Christina Aguilera opened up about how her family could have tried PokÃ©mon Legends: Arceus during the filming of his promo ‘My Way’. Well, sort of … while she got to see it in action, it’s actually her daughter who’s got her hands on it with the upcoming release, which is set to release next month. Here’s what she had to say about it:
“[While shooting the campaign], my daughter may have fallen in love with a new game. We had a brief moment to [try out] PokÃ©mon Legends: Arceus [due out January 28, 2022]. It’s so gorgeous, the graphics and the setting you can explore in, so she loved it so much, she wouldn’t give me a ride. But it was on set and yeah, it’s just a great way for your family to connect. “
In her latest Nintendo commercial, Christina can be seen playing World of Super Mario 3D, Animal Crossing: New Horizons and the Switch version of Big Brain Academy. Maybe we’ll see a future Nintendo commercial that features her with her family playing the latest PokÃ©mon game.
In the same interview, Aguilera mentioned that she has a long history with Nintendo – stating that she is a “die-hard fan”:
âI was playing Nintendo NES [the company’s first gaming system in North America, which came out in 1985], and I think that was the first where you had your Marios, your Donkey Kongs … So I go back a long way, and honestly to this day you can still find gaming systems. I literally have the games too. arcade in my house, so that’s what I’m a die-hard Nintendo fan.
