Nintendo and Brie Larson have teamed up once again to promote the Switch, this time with a new series of commercials. Brie is also doing interviews to talk about Nintendo, and she sat down with Elle to discuss how the Switch has been a connection point for friends and family during the pandemic.

"It's been quite a large focal point of my connectivity with my friends and family, and I'm so grateful for that. Some friends have actually gotten into Animal Crossing because of me, and so it's a way of virtually shopping or doing activities together. Then I've also now got Fortnite into the fold and so then for my more competitive friends and family members, that's become a huge source of connectivity and entertainment. I've been quite addicted to that game as well now."

Brie also talked a bit about her fondness for both Luigi and Peach, which you can read below.

"I will always have a deep place in my heart for Luigi's Mansion, because Luigi is my character. I love Luigi and I always wanted him to have his time to shine, he needed his own solo game. And now I'm just excited about the idea of pushing for a Princess Peach solo game. I think it's just been too long. Let's put Peach up there, let's give her her time to shine."

There's a lot more talk from Brie about Nintendo in the full interview, which you can find here.
