Nintendo uploads an unlisted Dragon Quest XI S commercial that lacks music, but still has sound effects


Looks like Nintendo made a bit of a goof with one of their uploads. The Big N currently has an unlisted commercial on their YouTube channel for Dragon Quest XI S. While the commercial looks just fine, the sound is definitely off. For whatever reason, the commercial doesn't feature any music or announcer voiceover. All you get is some sound effects and screaming, making for an interesting experience!
