This pandemic situation has proven to be a really beneficial time for the gaming industry. The lockdown period had nearly the entire human population confined to their homes with nothing but video games to keep them company. Even famous movie stars could not escape the clutches of gaming. As a result, we saw the gamer sides of many celebrities out there. And perhaps the most notable mention in that list would be Brie Larson.

Brie “Captain Marvel” Larson features on the latest Nintendo Switch commercial; Plays Fortnite, Animal Crossing, and more
The actor recently featured in a commercial for Nintendo Switch. The video shows her playing Fortnite, Ring Fit Adventure, and of course, Animal Crossing.
The video opens with her playing Fortnite on the Switch handheld device as she absent-mindedly answers a phone call from her producer. Moving on, we see her playing Ring Fit Adventures next as she works out. The Ring Fit Adventure is played by attaching the Joy-Con to something that looks like a steering wheel. Basically, the game allows you to make your workout routine fun.
At last, we see her playing her favorite game, i.e. Animal Crossing. Face-Timing her sister, Milaine Desaulniers, the two talk about an anecdote from Larson’s life about the game. When they were both young, their mother had made this rule that whoever would finish their homework first would get to play the game. She had shared this anecdote on her Animal Crossing Q&A video as well.
The commercial basically goes on to show that you can use your Nintendo Switch to play “anytime, anywhere”. This is quite true for the Switch, although the Joy-Con drift remains to be a persistent issue.
