When Gaten isn’t making one of biggest shows on TV, he’s doing what many 19-year-olds are doing: playing video games!
“I’m traveling all the time so that’s why I always use the Nintendo Switch,” he said. “It’s great because it’s not bulky or anything, it travels well and still plays great usually. What baffles me is how, even though it’s such a tiny console, it can run games as huge as [The Legend of Zelda] Breath of the Wild or [Kirby and the] Forgotten Land, which just came out.”
It’s not all fun and games, either. Gaten told us that things can sometimes get competitive—especially when his siblings and banana peels are involved.
“You can get the joint accounts [on the Nintendo Switch]. It’s always really fun,” he said. “Me and my siblings have always gotten a little bit too crazy when it comes to the Mario Kart situation. Fights have been had.”
Red shells are serious business!
