Wednesday night was basically Nintendo night on The Tonight Show.

Host Jimmy Fallon had a representative on from Nintendo to demonstrate the company’s newest games. First, there was Super Mario Run, the first Mario mobile game. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé walked Fallon through a game, helping him collect coins and a star of invincibility. After that, Fallon also got a taste of the next Legend of Zelda game, Breath of the Wild, on upcoming platform Nintendo Switch.

Fils-Aimé wasn’t the only Nintendo big-wig around to help. The creator of both Mario and Zelda, the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto, was also in attendance. After cheering on Fallon during his play-through, Miyamoto even accompanied The Roots on a version of the Super Mario Bros. theme song.
