Posted by Damien McFerran

Climb Bowser’s Castle and meet Mario, Luigi and Pikachu

Nintendo UK has released details on its 3DS & 2DS Made For Play Tour 2014, which will visit five UK cities this summer and give both parents and their children the chance to see the latest games and take part in fun activities.

The tour will feature themed sections — such as Mario's Den, Bowser’s Castle and a dedicated Pokémon area. As well as getting to try out existing titles like Tomodachi Life, Kirby: Triple Deluxe, New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Mario Kart 7, attendees will also be able to learn a little more about Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, which launches in November this year.

In addition to all of this, a special parents area will allow legal guardians to learn a little more about these newfangled 3DS and 2DS consoles, as well as the software which is available.

The 3DS & 2DS Made For Play Tour 2014 will be coming to the following events:

  • The Sunderland Air Show, Sunderland – 25th to 27th July 2014
  • CarFest North, Oulton Park, Cheshire – 1st to 3rd August 2014
  • Bristol Balloon Fiesta, Bristol – 7th to 10th August 2014
  • Lollibop, Hatfield – 15th – 17th August 2014
  • Bournemouth Air Festival, Bournemouth – 28th to 31st August 2014

Will you be attending any of these? If so, are you planning on paying a visit to Nintendo's stand? Let us know with a comment.

I've got all of those and have no interest in Pokemon, so for the first time I don't feel like I'm missing out :)

So many air festivals.
It is a well documented fact the flight enthusiasts are notorious gamers ;)

Give me a flight simulator on Wii U, and then we'll talk.

And, considering those are flight shows you're going to, the enthusiast in the audience will, too.

So no Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales then? Whoever is in charge of this "tour" should be sacked and replaced with someone who knows that there's more to the UK than just England. This happened last year as well. And they wonder why sales are down when they need to be grabbing people from ALL OVER the UK and not a select area to promote their games and consoles. I hope those who go enjoy but to cut 3/4 of the UK is barmy :O Maybe the rest of us should do a day boycott of not buying Nintendo products to show them all of the UK matters and not just one part of it :-(

There is normally ONE in either Glasgow or Edinburgh, and maybe one in N Ireland, but this is ridiculous!! it's just an england tour! They should know full well about the huge geek culture in Scotland after Comic Con Glasgow sold out and had a que of like a thousand people an hour before it closed!

Staying out of the UK vs GB debate.

I'm glad to see this. I like the 2DS and XL in the photo - no need to confuse people w/ the mid-price normal 3DS when you can market a $100 kids toy and a $200 adult gaming system and the interactivity between the 2. If the causal home market is gone and kids aren't playing Wii Sports w/ their parents anymore than best to show how parents can still keep playing w/ their kids on handhelds. I'm all for it.
