The logo and boot up animation for the Nintendo NX, the console eventually known as the Nintendo Switch, was found in a prototype version of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Game preservationist Paul Kelly obtained a video of the animation and posted it online over the weekend.When the console was known as the NX for nearly two years, Nintendo never showed a logo, making this the first time it's ever been seen in public.

The NX codename first emerged in 2015, when Nintendo announced its next console would be a "brand-new concept" made in partnership with mobile developer DeNA." Its name as the Nintendo Switch wouldn't officially be announced until October 2016, a handful of months before the console released on March 2017.Before officially unveiling the system, Nintendo was primarily focused on repeatedly promising that it wouldn't be a financial disappointment.

The console was developed partially in response to both the WiiU's financial disappointment and the growing competition of mobile games.
