If you thought Nintendo was done showing up in random places with the Nintendo Switch, then think again! Today Nintendo announced that it has partnered with GameTruck to bring its flagship Nintendo Switch games to party people all over the country.
"Starting today, more than 100 GameTruck vehicles will feature playable versions of the 1-2-Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild games on Nintendo Switch systems, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe being added to the fleet at the end of April. All the trucks will be wrapped in fun designs representing 1-2-Switch and are available to reserve now." If you'd like to look into reserving a GameTruck appointment for a birthday, bachelor party, pre-game, or anything else you can think of, you can visit the official site here.
"GameTruck delivers a fun video game experience to major metropolitan areas in 30 states around the country. The trucks bring gaming experiences directly to private consumer events and parties with more than 100 trucks fully equipped with the latest video games. There are even game coaches on board to give tips, tricks and training. The trucks roll right up to the location of the party to provide a no-hassle way for party planners to give their attendees a fun experience they’ll never forget.
"With multiple Nintendo Switch systems on every trailer, party-goers will be able to play together in all three Nintendo Switch configurations: TV mode, tabletop mode and handheld mode. Games like 1-2-Switch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will bring friendly competition and fun to parties of all types."
Unfortunately Tennessee is not one of the 30 states currently serviced by GameTruck, but if it were, I would totally be getting a few friends to throw down on renting one of these puppies out for a few hours. I can think of no better way to spend a spring afternoon than grabbing a couple of beers out on a nice patio somewhere, and then throwing down on a party bus decked out with game consoles and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. If you're thinking the same thing, then just know that the Nintendo Switch promotion period concludes on June 20.
