Nintendo Switch Event – Chicago February, 2017


UPDATE: Now with video!

Nintendo’s Switch and Play hands on tour continues making its way through the country as we approach the system’s launch on March 3rd and I was lucky enough (thanks to some help from Jeremy of Qoopa Klub) to attend the Chicago stop on February 18th. Ryan and I recorded an episode all about it (listen here), so check that out for hardware and game impressions. Check out the photos below (click on one to scroll through them one at a time). I’ll probably update this post soon with a little video too. The event was super fun and everything ran really smoothly, so props and thanks to Nintendo for a great time and for the Switch-branded pretzels, goldfish, and cookies!  If you live in San Francisco, LA, or can make it to PAX East or SXSW, definitely try to make it out to play some Switch. Either way, it’s not long now until we all have the chance milk virtual cows and play Breath of the Wild in every conceivable venue or location. Can’t wait!
