'Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard On The Nintendo Switch, The 1980s And Milking Virtual Cows

Finn Wolfhard may have been born in, sigh, 2002 but the "Stranger Things" star spends most of his time pretending it's the 1980s.

So of course he's a Nintendo fan.

Though Wolfhard collects Nintendo consoles dating all the way back to the original NES from 1985, he took a break from filming his second season as Mike on the Netflix smash and reshoots for his R-rated (and, yes, '80s-set) Stephen King film "It" to school us on the experimental Nintendo Switch.

The Japanese company's sold-out new gaming device, which is both a home TV console and a portable handheld, just launched with the acclaimed "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" while other games, including "Super Mario Odyssey," will arrive later in the year.

Wolfhard also advised us not to lick the console's tiny game cartridges and then proceeded to defeat me like a Demogorgon on "1-2 Switch" even though I totally practiced that stupid virtual cow-milking minigame at home with my kid.

Curses!
