Surprisingly, one of the actors in the trailer, who also happens to be a Twitch streamer, revealed that during the filming of the video he was holding dummy model, indicating that the gameplay footage was added in post-production.
Pausing the reveal trailer at certain times reveals that gameplay footage was indeed added in post-production because it sometimes overlaps an actor's arm or hand.
Nintendo states that it will talk about Nintendo Switch games "at a later date" but of course "before the March launch," adding that viewers "shouldn't assume what [they] saw on the video represents actual game footage and further specifics on first-party games will be provided later."
