June is here, which means more than pride discourse on Twitter — it means it’s time for summer! And Nintendo is celebrating the latter the only way they know how — promotion for their consumer products. From June 10th to September 5th, Nintendo of America will be embarking on the Nintendo Switch Road Trip, where they’ll pop-up at various spots across the country and invite passersby to play games like Nintendo Switch Sports, Mario Strikers Battle League, and Kirby and the Forgotten Land on a Switch OLED.

The locations for the Road Trip are as follows:

The tour covers most of the country, though those on the East Coast have more limited chances to go to a pop-up (if it’s worth going from wherever you are to Pennsylvania or North Carolina), though if you’re reading the article in the first place, we’re guessing you already have a Switch, maybe even an OLED model. That said, if you don’t, it might be a nice opportunity to check one out if there’s a location near you. HAGS, readers!
