From February 13, 2020, at select major airports across the USA, video games giant Nintendo will be providing pop-up airport lounges featuring its products.

The Nintendo Switch On The Go lounges will have comfortable seating, charging ports and Nintendo Switch game demos playable in both handheld and TV mode. Games will include well-known titles such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Party and Tetris 99, among others.

“We hope travelers discover that Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite make great companions for their trips,” said 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.”

In addition to spending time enjoying the latest Nintendo games, visitors to the lounge can order Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite systems and receive a free carrying case with their order. Travelers can also order select Nintendo Switch games and Nintendo merchandise.

The Nintendo Switch pop-up lounges and gateway experiences are currently scheduled to appear beyond passenger screening at the following airports: Dulles International, Seattle-Tacoma, Chicago O’Hare and Dallas Love Field.
