Nintendo to show off games in nationwide mall tour

Let’s go to the mall!

Nintendo’s taking to the road this holiday shopping season, embarking on a 23-stop mall tour across the United States, to get families hooked on the idea of bringing gaming home for Christmas. They’re bringing a whole lot of games with them too, with hands-on play expected to be available for more than a dozen Wii U titles (including Wii Party U, Windwaker HD, and Rayman Legends) and an equally impressive number of 3DS games (such as Legend of Zelda: Link Between Worlds, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, and Pokémon X/Y). They’ll also have suffering people in costumes you can take pictures with in most locations.

The tour begins next week on November 25th and continues through December 22nd. A full schedule of mall appearances can be found on Nintendo’s website.
