Remember going shopping with your family during the holidays and being bored out of your mind because you weren't there to shop for you? Wouldn't it be awesome if some of your favorite Nintendo characters came to your mall and let you check out some of the latest NES and Super NES games...or whatever Nintendo system would apply to you at that age? That's basically what Nintendo will be doing over the course of a month.
From November 24th through December 21st some familiar Nintendo faces such as Mario, Luigi, and Pikachu will be visiting sixteen malls across the country and letting holiday shoppers check out the latest Wii U and 3DS games. For the Wii U shoppers can check out Super Smash Bros., Mario kart 8, Hyrule Warriors, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Super Mario 3D World, Nintendo Land, and Skylanders: Trap Team. Over on the 3DS shoppers can check out Super Smash Bros., Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Mario Kart 7, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Kirby Triple Deluxe, Tomodachi Life, Yoshi's New Island, and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal.
Below is the list of malls that Nintendo will be visiting during the above time period. Sadly there are no stops in Ohio, the nearest stop being King of Prussia, PA. Sadly I won't be making the trip but for anyone who visits one of these malls during Nintendo's stops, have fun.
