Mario

We're sure plenty of you have memories of bringing your favourite games to college to play with your friends, but now Nintendo is taking this weirdly traditional pairing to the next level. Yep, Nintendo's going on tour!

That's right, the house of Mario has revealed that it'll be rocking up to college campuses this fall with its open-to-everyone Nintendo Switch: Together Tour. It's set to run from 30th September to 21st November and aims to give students a way to enjoy some friendly cross-campus competition while checking out Nintendo's latest and greatest offerings.

The tour will feature bright and colourful Nintendo Switch kiosks equipped with a wide selection of games, photo opportunities, and giveaways, with titles like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Super Mario Party, and Super Mario Maker 2 all making an appearance.

Here's where the tour will be heading out to (Nintendo notes that more stops might be added at a later date):
