Play Nintendo at the Mall of America with the family this Friday, July 8th – Sunday, July 10th!
In high school and college I played Nintendo games for HOURS – my favorites were Donkey Kong Country and all the Mario games, especially Mario Kart. My husband and I had (and still have) all the Nintendo game systems from Super Nintendo to N64 to Gamecube, but then we had kids, life got busy, and well, it’s been a while since I’ve played some of my all-time favorites.
That’s why I’m excited about the Play Nintendo Tour stop at the MOA this weekend – with my kids I get to play games featuring all the familiar characters (Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Super Mario)!
Here are some of the games you can try out on the new Nintendo 3DS XL system:
- Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
- Yoshi’s New Island
- New Super Mario Bros. 2
- Kirby: Planet Robobot
- YO-KAI WATCH
- Pokémon Omega Ruby
- Pokémon Alpha Sapphire
- Mario Kart 7
Here’s all the official tour info:
Come Be a Kid for a Day with Nintendo 3DS Games, Exciting Activities and Prizes!
Play some of Nintendo’s best games on New Nintendo 3DS XL and Nintendo 2DS systems, participate in exciting contests, win awesome prizes and snap memorable photos!
Inspired by Play Nintendo, Nintendo’s site for kids and families, the tour invites visitors to 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 Nintendo’s newest games, Kirby: Planet Robobot. People who are into cool family photos or amazing selfies can take some pictures 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 Rubyand Pokémon Alpha Sapphire region. The New Super Mario Bros. 2 section even 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 the town in the game, complete with mischievous Yo-kai lurking about.
There’s a surprise around every corner, so you really don’t want to miss it.
