Airline travelers might have the opportunity to relax with some Nintendo games when visiting their next airport terminal. Nintendo is rolling out a pop-up airport lounge at select major airports across the country, starting on Feb. 13.
The Nintendo Switch On The Go lounges will feature Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite systems for travelers to demo, plus the opportunity to purchase other Nintendo products.
Each lounge promises charging ports, comfortable seating, and Nintendo Switch game demos playable in Handheld mode or TV mode for all travelers to look on.
Highlighted game titles that loungers can demo include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Party, and Tetris 99.
Visitors to the On The Go lounges will receive a free carrying case when they order Nintendo Switch systems for themselves. They can also order Nintendo Switch games and merchandise, which will ship to their address within two days of purchase.
As a parting gift, anyone who stops by one of these lounges will take home a free Nintendo Switch branded luggage handle wrap and a $10 coupon from Target to use on any Nintendo purchase of $75 or more.
“… 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.”
The Nintendo Switch On The Go lounges are set to appear at Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C.; Tacoma Airport in Seattle, Washington; O’Hare Airport in Chicago, Illinois; and Dallas Love Field Airport in Dallas, Texas.
Each pop-up will last until late March, so interested flyers are encouraged to book their flights today.
