****I'll be heading to this at 11:45am. If you want to meet up, I will be on the 5th ave side by the EMP. Mario Leggings on and looking ridiculous! Find me, say hi and hang out!
I was debating whether or not to put this up as it's not really retro gaming and sorta kinda geared towards kids... but they did say for, "give kids and kids-at-heart the chance to play the Nintendo 2DS." This is actually all weekend, but I'm making this an event for Sunday. It also appears to be FREE! I'll be planning on being there at 12 noon to check it out. Besides, there is a bunch of stuff for us big kids to play on too and we can get our pictures taken with Mario and Luigi as well :) This is at the Armory by the Space Needle. Parking can be rough and it will be packed but there are other places to park in the city and the walk down should be a breeze. For those of you that have kids, def bring them along :) FYI...they will have Mario Kart to play...I know some of you are serious MK fans!
The Play Nintendo Tour is bringing a giant videogame playground to locations all across the nation. From June 6 through September 1, the tour will visit 12 cities to give kids and kids-at-heart the chance to play the Nintendo 2DS along with the latest games from everyone’s favorite characters.
Fans of all ages will love the themed zones filled with iconic items like banana-shaped seats in the Donkey Kong area, a giant Pokéball in the Pokémon section and Yoshi egg chairs in the Yoshi’s Island zone. You’ll also get to meet Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong and Kirby.
Plus, racers will be able to satisfy their need for speed in the Mario Kart racing area. Put your skills to the test in Mario Kart 7 in qualifying rounds. Win for a chance to advance and show off your moves on stage with a giant TV screen featuring the new, high-definition Mario Kart 8 for Wii U.
