This summer, Nintendo is taking the Switch on a Road Trip across the United States, starting June 26 and running through October 6. The traveling event will feature game demos for kids and families. According to Nintendo, “the colorful space offers fun photo opportunities for sharing on social media, Nintendo-themed challenges, and special Target discount coupons that will be handed out at all stops.”
