Nintendo Taking Switch On A Road Trip Around The US

This summer, Nintendo is taking a road trip across North America from June 10 to Sept. 5. During this event, participants will enjoy a hands-on experience with the Nintendo Switch OLED.

Attendees will be able to play demos of the newest Nintendo Switch games, such as Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Nintendo Switch Sports, and Mario Strikers: Battle League, set to come out on June 10.

Besides showing off the latest Nintendo games, the road trip will include Nintendo-themed décor for photo opportunities. In addition to that, attendees will have the chance to receive free Nintendo swag bags while supplies last and purchase Nintendo hardware/software.

If you wish to attend the event in person, it’s recommended that you pre-register to ensure you have a spot. Registration will open for each market as the date gets closer to each location.

Taking the Switch on tour when there isn’t brand-new hardware to show off may seem a bit unusual. If you’re still hoping for a new Switch model, Nintendo recently gave fans some hope on that front.

It’s set to be a big year for Switch, as Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will release in November. For more, check out our Switch OLED review.
