Nintendo Switch: Together Tour kicks off tomorrow, Sept. 30

Take a break from your stressful subjects and play some Nintendo games on your campus.

Nintendo is kicking off its tour of college campuses tomorrow as part of its aim to introduce the newest generation of college students to Nintendo games.

The new Nintendo Switch: Together Tour will be launching at Northwestern University in Illinois tomorrow, September 30 until October 1, before rolling out to eight more campuses in the United States until November.

Nintendo said the tour is a great way for college students to take a break from the stresses of college and have some fun playing Nintendo games — such as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Super Mario Party, and Super Mario Maker 2— at colorful Nintendo Switch kiosks. The kiosks will also feature photo booths and cool giveaways until supplies last. Students who visit the booths will also receive a $10 coupon to Target, also until supplies last, to use on any Nintendo purchase of $75 or more.

At the Nintendo Switch: Together Tour kiosks, Nintendo will set up a massive LED screen where college students can play.

Here's the complete lineup of college campuses where Nintendo's college tour will pop up:

> Northwestern University - Evanston, Illinois (Sept. 30-Oct. 1)

> The University of Iowa - Iowa City, Iowa (Oct. 3-4)

> University of Missouri-Kansas City - Kansas City, Missouri (Oct. 7-8)

> Kansas State University - Manhattan, Kansas (Oct. 14-15)

> Oklahoma State University - Stillwater, Oklahoma (Oct. 21-22)

>The University of Texas at Dallas - Richardson, Texas (Oct. 24-25)

> The University of Arizona - Tucson, Arizona (Nov. 7-8)

> UCLA - Los Angeles, California (Nov. 12-13)

> University of California Riverside - Riverside, California (Nov. 20-21)

All events will start from 11:00 a.m. and end at 5:00 p.m.

Students in these schools can now pre-register to get a unique QR code, which they can present when the tour arrives in their school. The QR code can be used to get access to different places at the booths and to receive a fun giveaway item.

The gaming giant said it is paying homage to 25 years of college students playing Nintendo games in dorm rooms.

“Some of the best college memories revolve around playing Nintendo games with friends... For the college students out there that don’t yet have a Nintendo Switch system as part of their dorm décor, this tour is the perfect spot to hang out with friends, compete in some entertaining multiplayer games and potentially walk away with serious bragging rights," Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, said in a statement.

Nintendo's college tour follows the launch of its already successful successor to the Nintendo Switch, the Nintendo Switch Lite, which is lighter, cheaper and has a more powerful battery.

The Switch Lite is available in the following colors:
