The Play Nintendo Tour Brings Family Fun and Magical Adventures to Arrowhead Towne Center

Come Be a Kid for a Day with Nintendo 3DS
Games, Exciting Activities and Prizes

–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nintendo:


      Nintendo’s classic characters and games are coming to life as part
of the one-of-a-kind Play Nintendo Tour. You’re invited to be a part
of the tour when it visits Arrowhead Towne Center in Glendale,
Arizona, from June 24 to June 26. Enjoy a unique experience bursting
with color and imagination that offers parents and their kids the
chance to 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 Ruby
and 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.
