The child-oriented Play Nintendo website and marketing campaign is one of the company’s biggest pushes to get a younger audience back on board with the once ubiquitous Nintendo brand.

To help more kids experience the games offered by the Nintendo 3DS, a Play Nintendo tour will be taking place throughout the summer. Featuring playable demos, contests, prizes and photo opportunities, the tour will transform malls and other locations throughout the United States into themed areas based on some of Nintendo’s most iconic worlds. Kids will be able to hide in Donkey Kong’s barrel, pose with a massive Kirby and more.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.

  1. Well that’s neat they’re expanding the set up beyond SDCC (which fyi, does not require a badge). There was always a crazy demand for the demo room the last few years (homg SSB 3DS/WiiU demo year was infreakingsane).

    This might also mean the play 3 demos for 3 tickets (3 tickets = t-shirt) may be gone this time around. 🙁
