Mario may be the fat guy next to you on your next flight

by: Cary -

Ok, not really, but Nintendo is partnering with Southwest Airlines to bring travelers some Wii U gaming lounges to six Southwest airports including Dallas Love Field, Atlanta, Denver, Chicago (Midway), St. Louis, and Tampa. The lounges will be set up during the holiday season from November 25th through December. The gaming centers will give flyers the opportunity to try out some cool new games including the new Super Mario 3D World

If that wasn't enough, Mario himself will greet a Southwest Airline flight in Dallas Love Field airport to meet them with an unspecified Nintendo surprise for the holidays. 

It seems Mario is stealing the end of the year spotlight even in the Year of Luigi.
