Nintendo News: Mark Your Calendars: The Nintendo Switch Preview Tour is Coming to a City Near You

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–After the Nintendo
system is unveiled to the world during the Nintendo Switch
Presentation 2017 in Tokyo on Jan. 12, Nintendo’s next home gaming
system is traveling across North America to provide hands-on time for
fans, gamers, families and everyone in between. Nintendo Switch will be
the star of an interactive multi-city tour that is open to the public on
select days.

The currently scheduled cities that are part of the tour include:

  • New York – Jan. 13-15
  • Toronto – Jan. 27-29
  • Washington, D.C. – Feb. 10-12
  • Chicago – Feb. 17-19
  • San Francisco – Feb. 24-26
  • Los Angeles – March 3-5

The first two days of each of these tour stops is invite-only, but
Nintendo is changing things up and asking fans to join the fun on the
third day. The Sunday stop of each tour is open free to the public, so
anyone that wants to be among the first people in the world to
experience Nintendo Switch will have her or his chance. Space is very
limited, however, and fans will be let in on a first-come, first-served
basis. Early arrival is highly recommended.

The interactive and engaging tour will let people of all ages experience
Nintendo Switch for the first time and play select launch games in very
original and surprising settings. Each of these unique areas will
highlight the different ways Nintendo Switch can be played.

In addition to these tour stops, Nintendo will bring Nintendo Switch and
launch games to PAX South in San Antonio (Jan. 27-29), PAX East in
Boston (March 10-12) and SXSW in Austin, Texas (March 16-18). Anyone
that misses out on the Preview Tour can catch Nintendo Switch at one of
these events.

Additional details about Nintendo Switch will be revealed during the
Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 on Jan. 12.
