Mario Embarks On A Canadian Road Trip

Nintendo CanadaFrom November 13th to December 18th, Nintendo Canada is inviting fans to meet Mario™ as he makes his way across Canada to showcase his latest games. Be among the first to play the new Super Mario™ 3D Land and Mario Kart™ 7 games on the Nintendo 3DS™ system, and receive your very own souvenir photo with Mario himself.

Mario’s Cross-Canada Tour will be visiting select cities in Canada greeting fans at city landmarks, sports arenas, retail storefronts, and even holiday parades. This is the perfect opportunity for fans to get exclusive hands-on Mario's Canadian Road Triptime with Nintendo 3DS and play two highly anticipated new titles. I’ve played them – trust me, you want to get your hands on these.

If you’re at Comic Con in Vancouver, you already know that Mario will be lurking around the hall until 3:00pm PST, and after an afternoon nap he’ll be cheering on the Vancouver Giants tonight at the Pacific Coliseum from 6:15pm until 10:00pm PST. Note, you’ll have to have tickets to get into these two events as well as for Breakfast with Santa. (Events marked with a star show those which may require an admission fee by the main event organizers.)
