Time Square Turns Into Mario Land!

object.jpg

Nintendo always gets creative with launch events for its bigger titles, and Super Mario 3D Land is obviously going to be one of those, so they're pulling out all the stops and transforming New York City's Times Square into the Mushroom Kingdom!

On Saturday, November 12, starting at 10am, Military Island will be home to all the chaos. In addition to being able to sample the game, fans will be treated to a performance from a group of Nintendo characters at the start of the event. And while supplies last, you can even get a set of Tanooki ears and tails! There will also be a "Mushroom Kingdom" Pizza truck offering free mushroom pizza slices to the first 1,000 people on site who tweet using the #SuperMario3D hashtag!

Of course, being that Toys'R'Us is just across the street, it's only natural that Nintendo would use that store to sell Super Mario 3D Land a day before its national release date. I'm curious how they're going to create a physical Mario Land with warp pipes, coins and whatnot. And throwing game footage up on the Jumbotron is going to be pretty awesome to see. I will definitely be in attendance (and early, so I can get a slice of pizza and Tanooki ears!), so if you're planning on swinging by, look for me! And if you can't make it, I'll make sure to take pictures and video for my podcast!

I'd say I'm jealous, but I can't really complain since I went to the Zelda symphony. Still, I'm really curious to see how far they go with the decoration.

I am glad that Nintendo keeps the Mario line alive. I am also glad that they sometimes go back and make it close to the old 2d side scroller. I still to this day like to play the original super mario brothers from the nes. But I think Super Mario World on Snes is my all time favorite. The only thing I don't like is that all these good mario games are coming out on 3ds. I just can't play on that little screen anymore. lol

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
