Want to get your hands on the Nintendo Switch before anyone else? Nintendo just released a full list of Nintendo Switch hands on event dates and locations. The Switch is going on a world tour!

The Nintendo Switch preview tour will be coming to 9 major cities throughout North America over to course of two months. Here is a full list of the places and dates:

  • New York – Jan. 13-15
  • Toronto – Jan. 27-29
  • Washington, D.C. – Feb. 10-12
  • Chicago – Feb. 17-19
  • San Francisco – Feb. 24-26
  • Los Angeles – March 3-5
  • PAX South in San Antonio – Jan. 27-29
  • PAX East in Boston – March 10-12
  • SXSW in Austin, Texas – March 16-18

Not one of these are within 10 hours of me so sadly I won’t be one of the lucky few to grope try out the Nintendo Switch before launch.

The first two days of these events are invite-only, but on the third day it will be open to the public. So if you want to be one of the first people in the world to experience Nintendo Switch, this is your chance. I’m sure these will be busy events so coming early would be recommended.

Any of our readers live in any of these areas? We would love to get some footage from these Nintendo Switch hands on events. I am interested to see which Nintendo Switch games will be available to play at these events.

Well... the Nintendo Switch has not been released yet, so he just dreams about that at night. Austin is known to talk about himself in third person and refers to himself as Clint Eastwood at times.
