Nintendo will be bringing the fun of the Switch on a special U.S. tour as Nintendo Switch Road Trip will kick off in late June. The company will be taking the truck you see below around to specific locations for multiple days where you can play the following games totally free and with groups of people: Super Mario Maker 2, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, Overcooked! 2, Super Mario Party, and Splatoon 2. Here’s a word from Nintendo about the announcement and the tour dates, which yes, don’t cover the entire U.S. and every state, but few gaming tours do.
