Southwest Just Gave A Free Nintendo Switch To Every Passenger On This Flight

Nintendo is scheduled to set up a huge booth at the San Diego Comic-Con, the grandaddy of all Comic Cons, held at the San Diego Convention Center on July 18-21.

The lounge will be open to the public and will offer playable games such as Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, Pokémon Sword and Shield, Super Mario Maker 2, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring the Legend of Zelda, and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening.

Book Your Flight To Europe & Learn Where You’re Going Afterwards?!?!?!

Imagine booking a flight (granted, a discounted flight) and you don’t know what your final destination will be until you’ve paid for the flight. Does the spontaneity make you feel excited? Or does it make you cower at the loss of control? Either way, it’s exactly what German airline Lufthansa is doing, and despite the preferences of control freaks like me where everything has to be planned ahead of time, it seems to be doing quite well!
