Nintendo Announces Summer of Play Tour

Nintendo is taking their own Summer road trip this year with the Summer of Play Tour. On the tour, Nintendo will bring the latest hits for the Switch and 3DS, like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, and Hey! PIKMIN to malls across America for families to go hands on and get a chance to try the games out. If you aren’t able to snag a New 2DS XL, the tour will also provide you with a chance to go hands-on and try it out for yourself.

“For families looking to purchase Nintendo Switch or a new handheld in the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, the Summer of Play tour is the perfect opportunity to give these popular systems a try. And since each stop is filled with familiar Nintendo characters and camera-ready visuals, the tour is a great place to spend a summer afternoon, take photos and create long-lasting memories with everyone in the family.” – Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing
