John Cena hosts launch event for Nintendo Switch

Ever dreamed of challenging John Cena? Well, a few lucky gamers will get to do just that when the 16-time World Champion teams with Nintendo to help launch the highly-anticipated Nintendo Switch console. In an effort to showcase the console’s capabilities, Nintendo is hosting special experiences in living room settings at some unusual locations with Cena as special guest.

The first pop-up Nintendo Switch experience took place Feb. 23 at the Blue Cloud Movie Ranch in Santa Clarita, Calif., where Cena showed what the Nintendo Switch can do and featured some of the games.

Cena played side-by-side with popular YouTube personalities Andre Meadows and Katie Wilson during the event. 

My time is now... to play #12Switch with @JohnCena at a special #NintendoSwitch event! Thanks @Nintendo!
