Watch Christina Aguilera play Pokémon Legends: Arceus before you can

watch Christina Aguilera family plays Pokémon Legends: Arceus Nintendo commercial US United States

There is a tremendous amount of hype surrounding Pokémon Legends: Arceus already, but Nintendo thinks the thing that will truly sell you on the game is to have you watch Christina Aguilera and her family play the game in a new Nintendo Switch commercial / video. The video is titled “Christina Aguilera & Her Family Make Memories with Nintendo Switch,” and it’s the latest in a series of commercials where celebrities like Aguilera or Neil Patrick Harris demonstrate the power of Switch to bring a family together.

In total, Christina Aguilera and her family play Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Among Us, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in the new commercial, but Arceus is obviously the object of interest. Due to the fast-natured pacing of the video, the usage of Arceus is kind of funny too. Aguilera sees her daughter is playing Switch, asks which game she’s playing, and then immediately asks if she can try. This implies that Christina Aguilera is ready to swoop in at a moment’s notice to hijack her children’s entertainment for herself, especially if it’s Pokémon Legends: Arceus. But admittedly, she does give the console back to her daughter after catching a Pikachu.

Let us know if watching this celebrity and her family play video games has supercharged your interest for Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
