John Cena will be demoing the Switch with some YouTubers

You can’t see me

Even with the Switch launching in roughly nine days and with a public preview event still scheduled for two cities, Nintendo is going to be demoing the Switch in a few more places with some twists.

This time, they are bringing a mock living room to three entirely different locations to simulate how people can play the console. John Cena is also going to be at the California event, hopefully stumbling into the room and holding up the title belt, along with some YouTubers. The details are below:

  • The Desert – Invite only
    Feb. 23, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. PT
    Blue Cloud Movie Ranch
    20019 Blue Cloud Rd.
    Santa Clarita, CA 91390
  • Aspen – Open to the public
    Feb. 27, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. MT
    Snowmass Village
    45 Village Square
    Snowmass Village, CO 81615
  • New York – Open to the public
    March 3, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. ET
    Flatiron Plaza
    Broadway between 23rd and 24th St.
    New York, NY 10010

I like how New York is apparently a different environment. How is it outside today? Very New York like. That event will have some costumed people walking around as Mario and Luigi, which does sound super fun.

Honestly, though, I don’t think I’d be playing my Switch in any of these locations. If I were in Aspen, wouldn’t I be skiing? If I were in the desert, I’d be doing my best to find help or increase my chances of survival, not playing a Switch. If I were in New York City, I wouldn’t show any signs of having technology on me so that I don’t get mugged.
