Nintendo is taking a Road Rules style trip across the US to pimp the Switch

Not your ride

Recommended Videos

As part of Nintendo’s plan for world domination “multiple Switch units per household,” they’re kicking off a series of tours across the US to spread the good word.

Basically it starts after the E3 madness has been ended in Chicago, and ends on October 6 at the Georgia National Fair. Participating states include Illinois, Wisconsin, California, Washington, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Kentucky, New York, Minnesota, New Mexico, Massachusetts, and Georgia. The list of games is Super Mario Maker 2 (which, by the time it debuts at the first stop in Chicago, won’t be out yet), Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Pokemon Let’s Go (both editions), Super Mario Party, and Splatoon 2.

Amazingly, and Ghost Town Games/Team17 must be over the moon about this, Overcooked 2 will also be on display as the only third party game. Other than that addition this is basically a world tour of 10 million plus selling “sure thing” games. Either way maybe you’ll get a chance to test out the Switch if you haven’t already.
