When Southwest Airlines’ passengers from Dallas were preparing their way to San Diego for one of the biggest comic conventions, Comic-Con International Festival, Mario went on board and gave everyone a surprising experience in the plane!
On 17 July 2019, the nation’s largest domestic air carrier, Southwest Airlines was in a paid partnership with Nintendo on a giveaway pack which included a Nintendo Switch system and a download code for the digital version of the “Super Mario Maker 2” game to all the passengers.
All passengers were given a chance to play the customized air travel-themed Super Mario Maker 2, “Southwest Super Sky Challenge” and they were also automatically given an opportunity to win a $500 Southwest® gift card, a Nintendo Switch system, and a digital version of Super Mario Maker 2 game. Additionally, Southwest Airlines is hosting the giveaway promotion called “Let’s Play Getaway” from now until 13/8/19 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
What is the grand prize?
ONE AND ONLY LUCKY WINNER will be able to receive four round trip air tickets and four Nintendo Switch™ systems bundled with a download code for a digital version of the Super Mario Maker™ 2 game!
Passengers were completely clueless that they were about to enter a Nintendo and Super Mario themed flight. They were only told that there will be a surprise in the flight according to the Twitter post from the Social Content Producer/Host from Funimation HQ, Lauren.
After every passenger was seated down, they were given a redeemable voucher to claim their console and code when they got out from the plane. Most importantly, passengers are able to retain both items with them!
“With the help of Southwest, we brought smiles to an entire plane full of people,” mentioned by America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Nintendo, Nick Chavez. “We hope that spirit of fun lasts for a long time, as now everyone on the flight has a Nintendo Switch system and Super Mario Maker 2 to play at home or on their future travels,”
Last but not least, Nintendo made an announcement through video on the release of the brand-new and cheaper version of Nintendo Switch, the Nintendo Switch Lite on 20th September 2019 with the price of $200. The device is available in 3 colours – yellow, turquoise and grey. Jot down the date and start saving your money for the Nintendo Switch Lite!
