If your interest wasn't already piqued enough by the concept of a Nintendo-themed amusement park, the company with a over a century of gaming history under its belt will be hosting a fascinating themed event at Hotel X in Toronto. From March 11th through the 26th, the Presidential Suite will be transformed into the Nintendo Switch Suite, allowing patrons to spend time wallowing in gaming luxury. Nintendo Switches and Switch Lites will be available for play, and while up to 50 major and minor titles have been announced for access, the games officially mentioned are Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Stay, however, isn't cheap, as pricing is $500. The plus side is this is a charity event for the Starlight Children's Foundation to bring entertainment and provide for critically ill children.
A PR representative from Nintendo had this 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.
