Nintendo Switch Playable Event At World Hobby Fair 2017

Man, Nintendo must have like thousands of Switch systems made just for demo purposes, especially since it seems like they will be busy demoing the console in many countries over the next few months. We already knew about the Japanese hands-on event on January 13 – 15, and now Nintendo has announced it will have demo stations set up at the World Hobby Fair ’17 beginning on January 22.



The places and times are listed below:

  • Nagoya (Nagoya Dome): January 22nd (9AM to 4PM)
  • Tokyo (Makuhari Messe): January 28th and January 29th (9AM to 4PM)
  • Osaka (Kyocera Dome): February 5th (9AM to 4PM)
  • Fukuoka (Fukuoka Yahuoku Dome): February 12th (9AM to 4PM)

Of course, if you live in the United States, Nintendo has already e-mailed some lucky My Nintendo members for a chance to get to play the system ahead of its March release date. It’s hard to believe that after all this time, some of us will be playing the Switch for the first time in under a month!
