These lounges, provided by Nintendo, will feature Nintendo products and hands-on interactivity with the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite systems.

The On the Go lounges will offer comfortable seating, charging ports, Switch game demos playable in both handheld and TV mode. Some of the games that will be featured include “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe,” “Super Mario Odyssey,” “Super Mario Party,” and “Tetris 99,” among others.

“With a vast library of exciting entertainment to launch into, we hope travelers discover that Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite make great companions for their trips,” said Nick Chavez, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Nintendo. “Spending time with Nintendo games at our On the Go lounges will give people the opportunity to begin or end their journeys with a smile.”

Not only will travelers be able to play these Nintendo games, but they can also purchase their own Nintendo Switch or Switch Lite system — and receive a free carrying case with their purchase. Select Nintendo Switch games and Nintendo merchandise will also be available to order. Just for visiting the lounge, guests will also receive a free Nintendo Switch-branded luggage handle wrap and a $10 coupon from Target to use on any Nintendo purchase of $75 or more (available while supplies last).
