"I just happened to get lucky because [an] unnamed store made a decision to ship early for whatever reason", hiphop wrote, adding that he doesn't have any games yet, so all he can do is "flip through the menus".

The video shows us our first look at the Switch's user interface - a simple, straightforward one by the looks of things. It follows the typical console start- user name, wifi connection, etc.

Someone with a (very early) Nintendo Switch console has filmed themselves turning it on, going through the setup process and demoing the system's UI.

For all intents and purposes, this marks the first time the general public has seen what the Nintendo eShop will look like on the Nintendo Switch, as well. In the Settings menu, the user switches the device's theme from "Basic White" to "Basic Black". So far everything looks pretty good and we have to say that we're pretty excited to get our hands on the console. While today's unofficial UI reveal is interesting, it highlights that there's still a lot we have yet to learn about the Switch before the console's release on March 3rd.
