Topic: Presenter snaps fingers in Nintendo Direct

Posts 1 to 9 of 9


I noticed how the presenter snaps his fingers during Nintendo Direct right before showing a game segment. I think this started after the Nintendo Switch was announced. Does this have something to do with Nintendo Switch or is it a coincidence?

It's a Switch thang

Switch - Smash Ultimate, Mario Kart 8D, NES Online (Dr. Mario only)
3DS -
PC - The Witcher 3, Nier: Automata, Mortal Kombat XL

The snap sound effect is a Switch thing, in handheld mode you can hear the sound when connecting the joycons.

Discord server:
Keep it PG-13-ish.


Cyborg: Why can't you call it a configuration disc?
Beast Boy: Why can't you call it an eyeball pizza thingy?


The snap effect has been around since the Switch's first official reveal video. I've always liked it; it's simple, recognizable, and catchy.

Click ! (Finger snaps)
That was the Trademark of Switch sounds.

That’s what I thought. It’s pretty cool, they should come up with one for 3DS too.



Well they could either use a funeral dirge or the Wilhelm scream for the DS.
