Nintendo Switch College Tour Announced for the Fall


Nintendo today announced the Nintendo Switch college tour, titled Nintendo Switch: Together Tour. The tour is meant to introduce the newest generation of college students to the newest generation of Nintendo games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Running from Sept. 30 to Nov. 21, the Nintendo Switch college tour is a way for busy students to take a break from some of the stresses of college life and let off some steam with a little friendly cross-campus competition. The tour will feature colorful Nintendo Switch kiosks equipped with a wide selection of games, photo opportunities and giveaways, while supplies last. And there’s no need to B.Y.O.G. (bring your own game), as visitors will have access to some of the best multiplayer games on the system, including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Super Mario Party, and Super Mario Maker 2.

“Some of the best college memories revolve around playing Nintendo games with friends,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “For the college students out there that don’t yet have a Nintendo Switch system as part of their dorm décor, this tour is the perfect spot to hang out with friends, compete in some entertaining multiplayer games and potentially walk away with serious bragging rights.”

Students who are looking to save a little money will receive a $10 coupon to Target to use on any Nintendo purchase of $75 or more just for stopping by.
