WHAT:

 

Headlined by video game luminaries like Mario, Donkey Kong and Pokémon, the three-month Play Nintendo Tour 2014 will showcase Nintendo’s latest hand-held, Nintendo 2DS, in an immersive gaming playground for kids of all ages. Traveling to a dozen major U.S. cities, this free event will showcase the hottest Nintendo games, including:

 
 

Guests will enjoy whimsical-themed gaming zones filled with iconic items like banana-shaped seats in the Donkey Kong area, a giant Poké Ball in the Pokémon section and Yoshi egg chairs in Yoshi’s island. Attendees will also have the chance to meet costumed characters Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong and Kirby.

 

Radio Disney will also be at the event on Friday, July 18, from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., featuring the Radio Disney Road Crew and prize giveaways (while supplies last).

 

Additionally, racers can satisfy their need for speed in the Mario Kart racing area, where their skills will be put to the test in Mario Kart 7. Winning drivers advance and will be eligible to move up to the main stage to show off their racing skills on a giant TV screen featuring the new high-definition, anti-gravity racing game for Wii U: Mario Kart 8, which launched May 30.
