The holidays are upon us which means its time to start planning gifts and getting ready to spread holiday cheer. Hoping to fill a few more living rooms with Switch goodness this season, Nintendo has announced a Holiday Experience that will tour the United States from November 10th to December 16th. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be one of the marquee titles, but Labo, Pokémon, Super Mario Party and more will be along for the ride.
Read the full press release below, and be sure to check out the locations and dates on the official website:
The Nintendo Switch Holiday Experience is a vibrant space that invites fans of all ages to stop in and experience all things Nintendo, and get recommendations about what Nintendo products to buy for their friends and family members this holiday season. Plus, they can try out a Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit and interact with a Fortnite-themed photo experience. Admission to the experience is free and everyone is welcome.
The Nintendo Switch Holiday Experience will have playable games for all types of different players. Fans of high-octane racing will love taking part in four-player races on a giant screen with the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game. Families who enjoy playing together can get the party started with Super Mario Party and Just Dance 2019. For Pokémon fans, the new Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! games for the Nintendo Switch system can be played using the new Poké Ball Plus accessory, which looks and feels just like a real Poké Ball. (Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! will be playable at the Nintendo Switch Holiday Experience starting on Nov. 16.) With a giant cast of some of the most popular video game characters of all time, families will love to compete in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and get a taste of their favorite fighters before the game launches on Dec. 7.
And if all of this isn’t enough, there will also be hands-on demos with Overcooked! 2, an uproarious four-player cooking co-op game created by Ghost Town Games, one of many talented independent developers, and the chance to get a feel for Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit, the latest in Nintendo’s line of interactive DIY experiences.
The Nintendo Switch Holiday Experience will be open to the public from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. In addition to all of the fun games that can be played, visitors who are My Nintendo members can check in with their My Nintendo QR Code** pattern to receive a holiday gift (while supplies last).
