Erm, does a gay porn star actually feature on the Nintendo Switch?

Eagle-eyed gamers have spotted an unlikely resemblance…

Sure, most gamers this past weekend were way too busy getting stuck into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to pay too much attention to the set-up screens on the new Nintendo Switch console, but a number of users did take notice, and boy did they get a shock.

In Japan, there’s a very famous gay porn film called A Midsummer Night’s Lewd Dream (catchy title), which sparked a whole series of memes in the country.

Like all adult movies, the porno has been ridiculed for its over-acting and generally absurd characters and scenarios.

But it appears like someone at Nintendo could be in on the joke.

One of the film’s characters is called GO and has starred in many of the memes, but now it seems he has a brand new role – and on the Nintendo Switch set-up screen, no less.

Japanese users quickly drew up an uncanny resemblance between GO and the figure posting a Nintendo Switch screenshot on social media in the set-up guide.

Of course, Nintendo haven’t commented on the likeness between the two images, but Japanese gamers are likely to have fun with this for some time yet.
