Nintendo recently announced the new “Nintendo Switch Holiday Experience”, which will mean that some of the most popular games of the holiday season will be available to play at select shopping centers throughout the US.
This exciting venture will begin on November 10th and will feature a line-up of family friendly games including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Super Mario Party, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Just Dance 2019, among other hot games of the season, meaning that there will be something for all types of players. Fans of all ages are invited to stop by and experience just what Nintendo has to offer, including the opportunity to try out a Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit and interact with a Fortnite-themed photo experience. There will even be live demos of Overcooked 2 for fans to enjoy. Admission to the experience is free of charge and everyone is welcome to enjoy it.
Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Doug Bowser, supports the venture:
“With the Nintendo Switch Holiday Experience, we wanted to give families a place to take a break and play some fun games during their holiday shopping. Being able to play games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before they launch is a great way to inform shopping decisions and educate people about what Nintendo has to offer this holiday season.”
