Nintendo is having a public road show to promote the Switch


In six big cities

You can catch Nintendo’s big information dump event on January 12 for the Switch, where they’ll likely divulge the price and specs, but there’s something extra if you happen to live in six major cities afterward.

Starting from January 13 until March 5, folks can catch a special Switch road tour of sorts where they can try out the system, similar to what they did for the Wii U. You can find the full dates below, just keep in mind that the first two days of any given city’s event are invite-only, but the third day will be public, barring any capacity issues.

More details will come later so you don’t make a trip out there and come back empty handed, but just keep those basics in mind for now. If it’s anything like the Wii U one they’ll have a marquee game to show off (for the Wii U it was New Super Mario Bros. U, this time it’ll likely be Zelda), and at least five or six others from third parties.
