New SUPER MARIO BROS. 2 launches Saturday 18th August for Nintendo 3DS, and what better way to celebrate than to head down to The Nintendo Experience in Melbourne for a golden afternoon of fun and games.
Where: The Nintendo Experience, EB Games, 67 Swanston St
When: Saturday 18th August, 12pm - 3pm
What: Gameplay, Trivia, Prizes, Competitions, StreetPass, Cosplay, Mario appearances, FUN!
There will be prizes to be won all throughout the afternoon with Mario trivia and give-aways, or perhaps put your skills to the test in the New SUPER MARIO BROS. 2 Coin Challenge.
Put on your best Mario-themed outfits and take part in the Mario Dress-Up Competition! With prizes for everyone who enters and the chance to live out the day as your favourite Mario character, it's sure to be a blast.
Maybe you'd just like to pop in and say hello to Mario? The world famous plumber will be taking some time out from his adventures in the Mushroom Kingdom to drop by throughout the day and help celebrate the launch of his latest game.
It will also be your first chance to play New SUPER MARIO BROS. 2 on the new Nintendo 3DS XL which launches on the 23rd August - with screens 90% larger than the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL features the biggest screen ever on a Nintendo handheld console.
Best of all, if you purchase or bring along your copy on the day, you'll be able StreetPass with heaps of other Nintendo fans and Nintendo 3DS owners, and team up with others to play New SUPER MARIO BROS. 2 together via local wireless multiplayer!
