Earlier this year, Nintendo jumped on the ASMR bandwagon when it uploaded a special "Sights & Sounds" video advertising The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild that highlighted the great outdoors and the portable features of the Switch.
Months on, it has now shared another video for this same series, and this time it's for Super Mario Maker 2. It runs for close to three-minutes and was filmed by YouTube video creator Devin Graham at Channel Islands Beach, Ventura, California. Throughout the clip, you can hear the sounds of the sea, button pressing and everything else you would normally associate with ASMR. Nintendo recommends you wear headphones for the best experience.
ASMR is an abbreviation for autonomous sensory meridian response and by definition is characterised by a static or tingling sensation on the skin. Videos like the one above are designed to relax listeners with gentle, soothing and satisfying sounds, and in this particular case, convince them to buy a Switch.
