“The Nintendo Switch Road Trip highlights the portability of Nintendo
Switch as we travel the country to bring our games directly to fans,”
said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales
and Marketing. “Whether you’re visiting a state fair or just out for a
day with the family, our event provides an opportunity to relax, play
some games and have some fun.”
The Nintendo Switch Road Trip is a great place to get hands-on time with
the system and some of its games. The space offers many areas themed to
different games, like a warp pipe-filled stage to play the Super
Mario Maker 2 game, a neon-colored paradise for the Splatoon
2 game and a large-screen TV and bucket race car seats for the
Kart 8 Deluxe game.
In addition to playable games, the colorful space offers fun photo
opportunities for sharing on social media, Nintendo-themed challenges
and special Target discount coupons that will be handed out at all stops
