Nintendo Switch Goes on Tour, Will Be Playable at PAX and RTX 2017


While the Nintendo Switch has been at the front of most of the recent gaming conversations, Nintendo has decided to up the ante. In addition to the upcoming hands-on even that will take play in New York during January 2017, gamers will also be able to catch up with the Nintendo Switch at other locations thanks to Nintendo’s upcoming tour. During this tour, gamers in the following cities will be able to get some hands-on with the Nintendo Switch, prior to the system’s official launch.

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

Per Nintendo, the first days of each tour will be an invite only, for those lucky enough to be invited via My Nintendo and members of the gaming press. The final day of the tour in New York has been recently opened to the public at an undisclosed location. Space is very limited, however, and fans will be let in on a first-come, first-served basis. Early arrival is highly recommended.

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).
