In an effort to help advertise the Wii U, Nintendo gave
everyone on a Southwest flight from New Orleans to Dallas a free console.

The 100-passenger flight was informed on the plane and had a
photo-op with Mario upon landing. They were also able to play at Wii U gaming
lounges, now available in some major airports through a partnership of Nintendo
and Southwest Airlines.

“As Southwest’s video game partner, our aim is to bring
smiles to travelers and Southwest Employees through the fun of Nintendo video

So far a few airports have been confirmed to receive the Wii
U lounges, including Dallas Love Field, Chicago Midway, Denver, Atlanta, Tampa
Bay, and St. Louis.

The two companies are even hosting a giveaway, with 30 grand
prizes consisting of two round-trip tickets on Southwest Airlines and a Wii U.

Hi! I'm Sam. I like video games. A lot. I'm also known to frequent conventions in cosplay and attend metal concerts. When I'm not painting, I like to lift heavy at the gym. I do enjoy long walks at the jersey shore and oreo milkshakes. Die-hard Flyers fan. Feel free to talk to me, I don't bite!
