Nintendo has reached out to a WWE Superstar to help promote the upcoming console, the Nintendo Switch… AND HIS NAME IS JOHN CENA! The 16 time WWE champion will be featured as part of a three-city tour starting this week. On Thursday, an invite only event will take place at Blue Cloud Movie Ranch in Santa Clarita, California. Cena will attend the event with YouTube influencers highlighting the Nintendo Switch’s capability with the game 1-2 Switch.

As a WWE Superstar and actor who is as versatile as the Nintendo Switch console itself, the performer (and Nintendo fan) Cena is the perfect person to kick off this unique tour. Known for his charisma and family-friendly appeal, John Cena will showcase the face-to-face off-TV functionality of 1-2-Switch, a Nintendo Switch launch game that features hilarious activities like milking a cow and participating in a Wild West duel. Cena will play the game with invited fans and YouTube influencers, highlighting how fun it is to play 1-2-Switch using the innovative new Joy-Con controllers.

If you can’t attend the first event, the second and third events are open to the public. The second event takes place on February 27, in Snowmass Village in Aspen and the third takes place in New York in Madison Square Park, for the launch of the Nintendo Switch on March 3.
