Switch commercial I bet to highlight the offerings on the system. Guests punch the ? box and one of the big games is shown on the large screen. Just a guess.

The Nintendo/Denizen shoot is STILL going on.

From AttractionsMag,

Do we have any idea of what this is? That's a long time to be filming an advertisement, and it doesn't seem to have any interactions with the guests.

Also, there's somebody wearing a Switch shirt in the second pic. Might be nothing, but it's still there.

It seemed like there was some people on the previous day doing something MK8 related..but at the same time, I am starting to wonder why they'd go through the issue of continuing film, especially if it'd be just for promotional material.

Perhaps it could mean something that we don't expect?

And then there's the question as to why they're filming in USH in the first place. What's the point?

That, I could guess of one of two things:

1: Nintendo Recommended Universal Citywalk because of the amount of crowds who come through to Denizen, and also via the trust from the Partnership

orr...and this is a stretch, and is purely a guess.

2: Nintendo and Denizen are filming an announcement video for something Universal-related..that has nothing to do with the theme park itself. If they did a tour and it would've kicked off at Universal (ala' Odyssey from Last Year), we would've gotten told of it. And that the only reason why Universal doesn't want their name on it, is to keep the reveal of something Nintendo-related a surprise.

That, is my complete and fully educated guess. I don't have anyone to back up on that, but I am wanting to maybe give somethings that are rattling through my mind.

Small question: Why couldn't it be theme park related? They did say that something Nintendo related would be announced this year for Orlando, I don't see why Hollywood wouldn't be included as well. After all, the thing is rumored to open in 2021, and there has been height balloon testing.
