Nintendo has a long and steamy history with the hotel industry, which for the sake of the kids we don't need to go into today (ahem). Jokes aside, this latest partnership with Nintendo of Canada and Hotel X Toronto does sound pretty darn cool – and it's for charity, too.
Here's what Nintendo's PR blurb had to say...
Nintendo of Canada and Hotel X Toronto have teamed up to give Nintendo fans the ultimate “night in” with the Nintendo Switch video game system. From March 11 to 26, the luxury hotel’s Presidential Suite will be transformed into the “Nintendo Switch Suite” - an immersive, bookable experience designed for social gaming with friends.
In addition to being outfitted with a number of Nintendo “touches”, the entire space is set up for gameplay - with Nintendo Switch™ and Nintendo Switch Lite systems at the ready. And guests will be able to choose from a library of more than 50 popular Nintendo Switch games - everything from Super Smash Bros.™ Ultimate to Fortnite to The Legend of Zelda™ to the latest Canadian indies.
Consumers will be able to book a stay at the Nintendo Switch Suite (which includes access to the Suite from 3:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.) for $500. All proceeds from every booking will be donated to Starlight Children’s Foundation, an organization on a mission to spread joy to sick kids across the country.
If you are lucky enough to be travelling around Toronto during these dates, a visit to the Nintendo Switch Suite sounds like a good plan.
