Play Nintendo Switch first: Here are all of the preview tour dates across America & Canada

Nintendo has announced the tour dates for its highly anticipated Nintendo Switch preview tour event, which will allow players to experience the console hands-on, playing select launch-day titles.

The day after Nintendo Switch unveils it’s price tag, release date, and initial game line-up at its live streamed Jan 12 presentation in Tokyo Japan, the Switch is going to make its way over to America and Canada to allow fans a hands-on opportunity with the console.

Nintendo has confirmed that the first two days of each tour are strictly invite-only, but fans will still get a shot at testing out the highly anticipate gaming system. On the third day, the Sunday stop of each tour, the event will be completely open to the public – but space it limited. The line up for the first-come-first-served event will probably be enormous, so if you really want to try out the Nintendo Switch, be prepared to pitch a tent.

“Early arrival is highly recommended,” said Nintendo.

Check out the scheduled cities and tour dates below:

  • 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

If you miss out on these events, Nintendo has your back. Nintendo Switch will also be coming to PAX South in San Antonio (Jan. 27-29), PAX East in Boston (March 10-12) and SXSW in Austin, Texas (March 16-18).

In the meantime, be sure to tune-in to the Jan 12 presentation in Tokyo Japan, which will be live-streamed worldwide at 11 p.m. EST on the Nintendo Switch Website.
