Busy travelers embarking on journeys this year will have the opportunity to encounter fun surprises waiting for them at the airport. Beginning on Feb. 13, at select major airports across the U.S., Nintendo will be providing Nintendo Switch On The Go pop-up airport lounges featuring Nintendo products and opportunities for hands-on time with the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite systems.

With comfortable seating, charging ports and Nintendo Switch game demos playable in both Handheld mode and TV mode, these lounges demonstrate the convenience and joy that the Nintendo Switch family of systems can add to everyone’s on-the-go adventures. Some of the games that will be featured at the demo areas include popular titles such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Party and Tetris® 99, among others.

“With a vast library of exciting entertainment to launch into, we hope travelers discover that Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite make great companions for their trips,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Spending time with Nintendo games at our On The Go lounges will give people the opportunity to begin or end their journeys with a smile.”

In addition to spending time enjoying the latest Nintendo games, while visiting the Nintendo Switch On The Go experience, travelers can order Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite systems and receive a free carrying case with their order. Travelers can also order select Nintendo Switch games and Nintendo merchandise.* Just for stopping by, visitors will also receive a free Nintendo Switch branded luggage handle wrap and a $10 coupon from Target to use on any Nintendo purchase of $75 or more (available while supplies last, terms apply).

    1. They got Nintendo World Store so they can wait a while for their own Switch area at their airport. I doubt this is gonna be just a thing for these four locations. If this thing is popular enough, they’ll probably expand it to other airports down the road.
