Super Mario Odyssey is getting closer, all set for a 27th October release. As is its way Nintendo of America is planning to celebrate with a promotional tour - it makes sense, some people play the game, you potentially get local news showing up, and you can share photos of gamers smiling while playing the game. Marketing 101.
In any case, the tour will take in five stops over the next few weeks, all in the US. Details are below.
|Los Angeles Kingdom||Universal CityWalk
100 Universal City Plaza
Located at 5 Towers at Universal CityWalk.
State Fair of Texas
3921 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
Dallas, TX 75210
Located in Chevy Park Plaza (enter at gate 11), across from the Chevy Ride & Drive.
10 a.m.-9 p.m.
|Chicago Kingdom||Navy Pier
600 E. Grand Ave.
Located in Polk Bros Park, Navy Pier’s front gateway, between Illinois and Grand avenues.
|Philadelphia Kingdom||Philadelphia Museum of Art
2600 Benjamin Franklin Parkway
Located below the “Rocky Steps” of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
|New York Kingdom||Rockefeller Center
10 Rockefeller Plaza
New York, NY 10020
In all cases there'll be photo opportunities with a Mario mascot and a chance to try the game. The New York stop will be a bit different, tying in with a midnight launch at the Nintendo NY store; "the first 200 people in line will gain access to the event and be the first to purchase the game at midnight." Weary old perspective aside, we can imagine this trailer will be pretty cool for young kids to see.
Will you be heading to any of these stops?
