This summer, Nintendo is taking its games on the road with their 12-city Play Nintendo Tour. The Play Nintendo Tour is aimed at introducing younger kids to Nintendo and its characters, as well as giving kids who already know these characters a fun way to play with them. The tour will visit malls and other locations across America. At each stop, there will be 3DS consoles for kids to play new games like Kirby: Planet Robobot on while taking pictures beside a giant Kirby statue.
Every stop on the Play Nintendo Tour will have game areas, giant statues of characters to take pictures with, and contests with prizes. Nintendo is also expanding their Nintendo Play site with new games and quizzes (What really is your Pokémon type?). The Nintendo Play Tour will be stopping in the cities below.
