This afternoon we learned that random My Nintendo members started to receive email notifications inviting them to a special event for the Nintendo Switch. Though while I am bummed I was not one of the lucky ones to receive that special email, all hope is not lost!
Nintendo announced this will be a three day event. The first two days will be for invitees only, who may also register to bring one other guest with them. The third day will be open to the public with no registration required and it will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
This special Switch event will be held at select locations throughout the U.S.A. While the specific locations have yet to be formally announced, Nintendo plans to release this information in the near feature.
Here are the locations:
- New York – January 13th – 15th (Our best guess is at World of Nintendo HQ in Manhattan)
- Washington D.C. – February 10th – 12th
- Chicago – February 17th – 19th
- Los Angeles – February 24th – 26th
- San Francisco – March 3rd – 5th
If you didn’t receive an email invite, be prepared to show up early on that third day to try and beat the crowd. I know I will be!
What do you think we’ll get a demo of? The first date is January 13th, one day after the Nintendo Switch presentation. The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon previously got to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Switch – the first time the game was seen on the Switch. Could be be able to demo our next gen Mario game or the improved ports of Splatoon or Smash Bros.? What do you think? Tell us in the comments below!
