Nintendo Summer Cross-Canada Tour Details Announced

Nintendo CanadaNintendo® is taking the Wii U™ and Nintendo 3DS™ coast-to-coast on a Cross Canada Tour this summer, and you are all invited to join in on the fun. During your visit, gather your friends, choose your favourite Nintendo -themed prop, snap a photo in the Nintendo photo booth and share it with your friends – and don’t forget to spin the Cross-Canada Tour Prize Wheel for your chance to win some awesome Nintendo items before you leave, including T-Shirts, candy, and photo frames. There may even be a mystery prize or two. But wait – that’s not all….

For the first time ever, Nintendo of Canada Facebook fans will help decide where the tour goes next. Throughout the tour, Nintendo of Canada will post voting polls on its Facebook page and allow fans to vote on where the trailer goes next. The cities with the most votes received before the deadline will receive a visit from the Nintendo tour. From the Maritimes, Greater Toronto area, through the Prairies all the way to Vancouver Island, now is your chance to bring the Nintendo experience to your town. Be sure to “Like” Nintendo of Canada’s Facebook page for your chance to participate, and keep your eyes open for the polls throughout the summertime.
