Nintendo is taking the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS coast-to-coast across Canada on a cross country tour this summer. The company will have a large number of new games on display and playable to those in attendance, including New Super Mario Bros. U, LEGO City: Undercover, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon and the new Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.
Plus, fans will get the chance to try all of the new titles being released this summer, including Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Mario and Luigi: Dream Team, Game & Wario, and Pikmin 3.
Also, for the first time ever, Nintendo of Canada Facebook fans will help decide where our tour goes next. Throughout the tour, Nintendo of Canada will post voting polls on its Facebook page and allow fans to vote on where the trailer goes next. The cities with the most votes received before the deadline will receive a visit from the Nintendo tour.
From the Maritimes, Greater Toronto area, through the Prairies all the way to Vancouver Island, now is your chance to bring the Nintendo experience to your town! Make sure to “Like” Nintendo of Canada’s Facebook page for your chance to participate, and keep your eyes open for the polls throughout the summertime: facebook.com/nintendoofcanada
Also part of the tour are photo oppertunities with where you can choose your favourite Nintendo-themed prop, snap a photo in our photo booth and share it with friends. There will also be a Cross-Canada Tour Prize Wheel for your chance to win some Nintendo swag before you leave, including T-Shirts, candy, and photo frames. There may even be a mystery prize or two.
