Nintendo of America is not taking the slow and quiet route out of this year, as we head into the holiday season. For the most part, going into Holiday 2015, gamers and fans are pretty aware of all that is heading their way from Nintendo. However, that is certainly not stopping Nintendo from promoting their major titles around the country.
All the hottest video games of the holiday season will be on display when Nintendo visits 16 malls around the country from Nov. 23 to Dec. 20. Holiday shoppers who want to make a fun pit stop can try the Japanese sensation YO-KAI WATCH game, which just hit U.S. shores on Nov. 6, the New Nintendo 3DS XL system, amiibo and more.
Fans will also get the opportunity to check out some other games on Nintendo 3DS as well as the Wii U.
And the Nintendo fun doesn’t end there! In addition to YO-KAI WATCH, other Nintendo 3DS games available to play include The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Mario Kart 7.
With so many games, yet so few locations, it’s important to know exactly where/how to get your hands on these game experiences.
Visitors can also check out the latest amiibo figures and visit Nintendo’s colorful interactive space to receive free giveaways and Nintendo Holiday Gift Guides, while supplies last. Nintendo holiday “gurus” will be on-site as well to assist gift givers with questions, and provide recommendations to those looking for the perfect gift from Nintendo. While supplies last, visitors can also receive a coupon for use on Nintendo products at Toys R Us locations this holiday season.
