Nintendo is now considered an “entertainment” company, as the new president has stated. This means that instead of a gaming-only company, Nintendo is now looking into other ventures.

And, what better way to connect to Nintendo fans than to go to different malls and meet and greet them with Nintendo’s iconic characters?

Nintendo is aiming to give old Nintendo fans a dose of Nostalgia and they also want to share the experience with the new generation as well.

The entertainment company will be hosting a “Play Nintendo Tour 2016” and it is basically a host of the most popular Nintendo characters going to different malls in the United States to meet and greet the fans.

Aside from meeting and greeting with the fans, Nintendo die-hards will also have a glimpse of Nintendo’s new offerings.

For one, players can enjoy playing the new Kirby: Planet Robobot game and they will also have the opportunity to have some photos with the iconic cute pink character.

What if you want to unleash your primal side and you want to have a close up with Donkey Kong? The iconic gorilla will also be available in the said events.

You can even go inside a Donkey Kong barrel if you like. And while you’re monkeying around, you can also play the Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D as well.

Yoshi is also one of the most iconic Nintendo characters. Yoshi will also be attending the event and you can also play Yoshi’s new game called “Yoshi’s New Island”.

These are not just the characters that will be in the event, although, these three characters will surely be in each one.

There will be some of the Nintendo characters that will be joining in other events but not all of them will be present.

Some of the reported Nintendo characters that will be available for some of the events are Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, Starfox, Pokemon Characters, and so much more.

During any of the Play Nintendo Tour mall events, there will be prizes that will be up for grabs. There are some prizes that will be given just by attending the event and there are also prizes that can be won if you participate in the games.

Nintendo is truly committed to bringing quality gaming entertainment to the masses. Since Nintendo has an entire roster of cute and memorable characters, children and adults alike will be happy if they attend the Play Nintendo Tour events.
