While the focus of today’s Nintendo Switch reveal trailer was clearly on the hardware itself, there were many subtle hints woven into the presentation. For instance, did you spot the Super Mario line amiibo strategically placed next to the Switch dock in this scene?

Well, I didn’t either, until some resourceful Redditors pointed them out. Don’t feel bad, they’re easy to overlook when the very first footage of a brand new 3D Super Mario game is debuting inches above them.

It’s no surprise that amiibo will be making the switch to Switch, but exactly how they will be incorporated into the new system’s ecosystem will have to remain a mystery, for now. Could their placement in the trailer alongside a brand new Mario adventure be our first clue at a Switch title’s amiibo support? It seems likely, but we’ll have to wait and see.
