Nintendo Switch Is Going to College

It seems like just yesterday, the Nintendo Switch was birthed into the world by Nintendo, alongside a new Zelda game. But, well, time flies, that's just a reality of life. No, seriously, the Nintendo Switch is going to college! Today, Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch: Together Tour, which will bring the hybrid console and some games to campuses across the United States. Because, you know, nothing goes better with Adderall and beer pong than trying to finish one damn game of Super Mario Party in first. Thankfully, for college students, Nintendo is bringing Super Mario Party on the road with it. It will also show up to orientation packing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, and Super Mario Maker 2. There will also be photo opportunities, but at the moment, there's no word if you'll be able to snap a selfie with Waluigi. Lastly, Nintendo will be dishing out a $10 coupon to Target for the use of any Nintendo purchase of $75 or more.

Meanwhile, attendees can pre-register here to nab a free and unique QR Code that can be scanned during the event. And as Nintendo puts it, the more you scan that bad boy, the more fun you will have. Here are the list of colleges included in the tour:
