“Karen” from the first Nintendo Switch trailer has shed her pseudonym on Instagram

Karen from the first Switch trailer on Instagram
She even identifies herself as "Formerly Nintendo Karen". I love this - let's hope we get to know her better through Instagram!
Nintendo Karen Fans became enamored by an actress in the first Nintendo Switch trailer in which she demonstrated the Switch's ability to go from the living room to a party on the rooftop next door. She wasn't credited in the trailer, so the internet named her, "Karen". Memes appeared and the theme was all about Karen. It's a strange world we live in.

Fans identified with her and the passion she exemplified for playing video games and sharing the experience in her travels with friends. In an interesting twist, the actress from the trailer now has an Instagram account and her name is likely not Karen. It's way cool of her to embrace "Nintendo Karen" and share more about herself.

Sometimes people surprise you in all the right ways!
