Gaming company Nintendo says it will begin opening pop-up On the Go lounges at four major U.S. airports, enabling travelers to experience the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite systems during their dwell time.
The lounges feature charging stations, comfortable seating and the ability for passengers to play both handheld and TV versions of popular Nintendo Switch titles, such as Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Party and Tetris 99.
The participating airports are Dulles International Airport (IAD), Seattle Tacoma International Airport (SEA), Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL), and the pop-up lounges will be available from mid-February to late March.
“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,” says 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.”
Travelers can also order select Nintendo Switch games and Nintendo merchandise at the pop-up lounges and all visitors will 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.
