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

Not your ride

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.
