Want to try Super Mario Run for yourself? Well, starting on December 8th, Thursday, Apple Stores will get a demo of Super Mario Run to everyone to try out a week ahead of the game’s worldwide release. Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo of America, went on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to demo Super Mario Run, and let Fallon play the game. Shigeru Miyamoto also made an appearance in the crowd before Fallon played Super Mario Run. Fallon got some wall-jumping on, picking up some special coins and finding an invisible screen. Fallon is really, really excited about the game:

They demo some of the modes, including what is sure to be a long-term hook of the game, the Kingdom Builder mode. Fallon picks up 7 out of 10 of the special coins. “7 out of 10, I’m bummed out, I’m really embarrassed." Just how I imagine developers feel when they get a dreaded Carter Dotson three and a half stars.

Oh, and Jimmy Fallon gets to play around with the Nintendo Switch, which you may have heard of. Not too much new there, but January 12th is when we’ll hear more. This video is actually really cool because Jimmy Fallon is geeking out so bad and it seems genuine – he’s had gaming features on the Tonight Show before. So what we have is someone genuinely, irrationally, exuberant about Nintendo’s stuff, checking out new Nintendo stuff. It’s a fun watch!

If you need more Super Mario Run, Nintendo’s got a new video showing off the game, how it works, and its myriad features:
