Nintendo-themed lounges are coming to U.S. airport lounges

Travelers get to play Breath of Wind, Mario Kart 8, and other Switch games while they wait for their flight

For a limited time, airline travelers in the US will be greeted with Nintendo-themed pop-up lounges at select airports throughout the country. Called the Nintendo Switch On-the-go experience, each lounge is decked out with cozy furniture, ample charging ports, and of course Nintendo Switch consoles. The company says these lounges are designed to make traveling less stressful by showing passengers how great a companion the Switch and Switch Lite can be.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wind, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Party and Tetris 99 are among the many titles expected to be available to play. As a token of appreciation, visitors will receive a branded luggage handle wrap in addition to a coupon from Target to use on your next Nintendo purchase (of $75 or more).

Any traveler who orders a Switch or Switch Lite while at the lounge is eligible to receive a free, limited availability carrying case with their purchase. The Nintendo On-the-go experience will run from February 17th until March 29th at Dulles International, Tacoma International, and O’Hare airports. Dallas Love Field will have the lounge run from February 13th until March 26th. Anyone passing through one of these airports during the mentioned dates is encouraged to stop by.
