US: Nintendo Switch Is Headed To A Party Near You

Nintendo is partnering with GameTruck to bring the Nintendo Switch console and fun games like 1-2-SwitchThe Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to parties everywhere. Starting today, more than 100 GameTruck vehicles will feature playable versions of the 1-2-Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild games on Nintendo Switch systems, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe being added to the fleet at the end of April. All the trucks will be wrapped in fun designs representing 1-2-Switch and are available to reserve now at The Nintendo Switch promotion will last through June 20.

GameTruck delivers a fun video game experience to major metropolitan areas in 30 states around the country. The trucks bring gaming experiences directly to private consumer events and parties with more than 100 trucks fully equipped with the latest video games. There are even game coaches on board to give tips, tricks and training. The trucks roll right up to the location of the party to provide a no-hassle way for party planners to give their attendees a fun experience they’ll never forget.

With multiple Nintendo Switch systems on every trailer, party-goers will be able to play together in all three Nintendo Switch configurations: TV mode, tabletop mode and handheld mode. Games like 1-2-Switch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will bring friendly competition and fun to parties of all types.


  1. Neat idea! And they do have it here in Des Moines, so we’re good there. And it looks like the game truck is only one of their services, so I might have to look into some of the others.

    But I have 40 systems, spanning all generations and somewhere between 1200 and 1500 when you factor in digital downloads (about 950 when you only count hard copies), so we’ve got a metric ton of gaming options already without the truck – including a Switch. And besides, we could probably burn several hours just on the Jackbox games alone without busting into any of the others.

    This truck idea has TONS of merit, and even in my own context it has its appeal! Plus, I’m glad they’re getting in so deep with the Switch! But given what options I have that won’t cost me a thing, I’m not entirely sure I’d ever be able to justify the cost of renting one!
