Earlier this week a small number of My Nintendo members started to get first-come-first-served invites to Nintendo Switch preview events in North America, with New York being first up with other cities to follow. Nintendo of America has now rebranded these events as the 'Nintendo Switch Preview Tour', offering up public days on which those without tickets can try their luck.

On the third day (Sunday) of each weekend in the tour the doors will be open to the public, with the first two days being the ticketed events; on the public day it'll be first-come-first-served to get through the doors. Cities involved are below - they're the same as revealed earlier in the week, with venue details still to be outlined in detail.

  • New York – Jan. 13-15
  • Toronto – Jan. 27-29
  • Washington, D.C. – Feb. 10-12
  • Chicago – Feb. 17-19
  • San Francisco – Feb. 24-26
  • Los Angeles – March 3-5

In addition, the Switch will also be playable at three expos in the build-up to launch - PAX South in San Antonio (Jan. 27-29), PAX East in Boston (March 10-12) and SXSW in Austin, Texas (March 16-18).

Are any of you planning to try and go hands on with the Switch before it arrives in March?
