Nintendo Installing 'Switch Pop-Up' Lounges At U.S. Airports!


I'm going to say it...layovers suck! Waiting for your next flight, especially if it's a few hours, can be boring and painful. This is where Nintendo comes in and saves the day.

Nintendo plans to open Switch 'Pop-Up' lounges, where they can play Switch games, grab free stuff, and even charge their own devices. Yes, that means you'll be able to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, challenge people to a few rounds of Mario Kart, Super Mario Party, and it will on both handheld/portable mode as well as full TV/Dock mode.

While this pop-up exists, customers can purchase their own Nintendo Switch, plus will get a free carrying case. There's also deals for Target gift cards and other freebies while shopping in the lounge.

You're probably wondering where these pop-ups exist....you'll see these lounges at Washington-Dulles International Airport, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and Dallas Love Field Airport from mid-February to late March. I may have to fly this next month just to check them out!
