Now Anyone Can Play Switch While Waiting for the Plane at Special Nintendo Airport Lounges

Next time you’re hauled up in an American airport, why not check to see if there’s a Nintendo Switch on the Go lounge? There’s few better ways to spend your time whilst waiting on the next flight out of Chicago

Nobody likes waiting. Especially when you’re sitting on your suitcases and no amount of coffee or Netflix is enough to keep you sane. Airports are a magical place, aren’t they?

Well, Nintendo has decided to rekindle our feeling of adventure. From 13th February until 29th March, travellers in major US airports will be able to pass the time with their favourite Nintendo games.

“Nintendo Switch On The Go” are pop-up airport lounges. People will have a chance to play Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite consoles whilst they wait.

Available in both handheld and TV mode, consoles offer games such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Party, Tetris 99 and more.

“With a vast library of exciting entertainment to launch into, we hope travellers discover that Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite make great companions for their trips. pending time with Nintendo games at our On The Go lounges will give people the opportunity to begin or end their journeys with a smile”.

Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing

But It’s Not Just About the Gameplay Experience

If you feel like carrying on playing, there will be a chance to order a Nintendo Switch or Switch Lite. You can even receive a complimentary case with your order. You can also buy from a selection of games and merch.

For those who are not in the spending mood, just for visiting, everyone gets a branded luggage handle wrap and a $10 coupon from Target to use for a Nintendo purchase later.

These are places and dates for pop-up lounges:

17 February – 29th March

Dulles International Airport – Washington, D.C., Concourse B near west entrance/exit, next to Gate B62

Seattle – Tacoma International Airport – Seattle, WA, Concourse C, next to Gate C10

O’Hare International Airport – Chicago, IL, Terminal 1, Concourse B, between Gates B12 and B14

13th February – 26th March

Dallas Love Field Airport – Dallas, TX, West Terminal, near Gates 14 and 16

So, if you are planning to travel through one of those airports, make sure you don’t waste your time staring at the information screens. Instead, lose yourself in the fields of Hyrule or race your travelling companions in Mario Kart.
