12-City Play Nintendo Tour Brings Family Fun And Magical Adventures This Summer


Nintendo has touched millions of families all over the world with its much-loved characters and games. Parents can rekindle the magic of the Nintendo world that shaped their childhood and share the wonderful memories with their kids this summer at the upcoming Play Nintendo Tour. Inspired by the Play Nintendo website, Nintendo’s fun, engaging and age-appropriate online destination for kids and families, the 12-city tour will visit malls and other locations across the United States. The tour will bring the magic of Nintendo to life with playable Nintendo 3DS games starring characters like Mario, Kirby and Donkey Kong from June 17 to Sept. 5. There will be exciting contests, amazing prizes (while supplies last) and photo opportunities. This one-of-a-kind experience bursts with color and imagination to offer parents a fun and engaging way to spend time with their kids. Best of all, the tour is free for everyone.

“With the Play Nintendo Tour, there’s a surprise around every corner for kids and kids at heart,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “The tour’s massive play area is filled with Nintendo 3DS games and charming worlds themed around classic games and characters.”

Visitors can hop into a Yoshi egg to play Yoshi’s New Island, recline on a giant banana while checking out Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and relax in pink beanbag chairs to play one of the newest games, Kirby: Planet Robobot, which launches on June 10. People who are into cool family photos or amazing selfies can take some snaps next to a huge Kirby figure, beside an oversized Yoshi egg, inside a barrel flanked by Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong, under a devastating blue Spiny Shell in the Mario Kart 7 area or next to a giant Pokéball in the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire region. The New Super Mario Bros. 2 section features a photogenic flagpole, stacks of coins and a warp pipe, while the YO-KAI WATCH area makes people look like they have stepped into Springdale, the town in the game, complete with mischievous Yo-kai lurking about.

At each location, visitors can compete for a chance to win prizes (while supplies last) and play games on a video wall shaped like a giant Nintendo 3DS system. The Play Nintendo Tour is scheduled to visit the following locations:

  1. Sounds like an event for cock sucking troglodytes to swoon over with their ugly ass down syndrome kids they shouldn’t of had. Oh I relish the days where these semen slaves would be strung out back on a rope and beaten with broomsticks until they could no longer walk. A mall is a place for shopping and fun not this kind of disgusting filth, these hordes of beasts sucking and fucking each other for all to see. Nintendo should open a tour where they go to game development studios all over the country and learn how to make satisfactory games again. I like the Wii U but they have fallen pretty far since gamecube, spending a dime trying to advertise their shitty dead lineup to cum licking fag enablers is not a good idea.

      1. Mate this is the account I always use on here. I am not who you are referencing and this was not a troll post. A lot of it is flair and warped humor with a spice of sexual tension but my real opinion is in there and boils down to “Nintendo should cut it out with this kind of marketing, waste of money advertising this dead lineup to kids/parents”

          1. There is no lack of knowledge in my remarks regarding queers, it is saucy and uncouth but sometimes you have to inject some of that into your commentary. No actual hate but even if there was it would not matter, under obama law a person gets 10 years of anal punishment for actual straight on gay crime. I think it is important to be provocative and edgy on nintendo content since nintendo’s fanbase has become such a rated G hugbox neogaf tumblr shithole, defending a corporation’s failed abortions and stupid decisions. Gamexplain would be a much better channel if andre would take the dick out of his mouth and call miyamoto a stupid gook every once in a while for destroying paper mario.

              1. The original post is more over the top than anything else, I can’t imagine someone actually being offended after reading “cock sucking troglodytes”. Like it, don’t like it, whatever.

                1. I wasn’t really offended or taking your post seriously. Making fun of down syndrome kids is pretty weak though, no matter how you look at it. The whole shock humor thing kind of went out with Howard Stern in the 90’s. You need to catch up man because your sense of humor is pretty wack.

  2. Why do they have to be doing it at the Bite of Seattle? Why not at the Northgate or Southcenter malls? It’s WAY too packed during the Bite of Seattle event, plus you have to pay to enter it =(…Oh well.
