Nintendo is taking Switch on the road in North America, but it will only make stops in six metropolitan areas.


After the console is revealed on January 12, Nintendo will kick off Switch’s North American tour in New York City and it will conclude in March with its last stop in Los Angeles.

Those who live in or near the following cities will be able to try out the new console on the following weekends:

  • New York City, NY – Jan. 13-15
  • Toronto, Canada – Jan. 27-29
  • Washington, D.C. – Feb. 10-12
  • Chicago, IL – Feb. 17-19
  • San Francisco, CA – Feb. 24-26
  • Los Angeles, CA – March 3-5

The first two days of each stop is invite-only, but on the third day, which is a Sunday, all are welcome on a first-come, first-served basis. So, get there early if you want a chance to try the new system out.

Nintendo said more details will be announced at a later date.
