If you're nearby you simply shouldn't miss it

We'd be delighted if you join us for an evening of Nintendo-related fun and frolics in our first Nintendo Life Gaming Night this year, which will be held at the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge, UK on 25th July. There'll be a chance to play all of Nintendo's classic consoles such as NES, Game Boy, SNES, N64, and even the mighty Virtual Boy!

We'll be hosting a Super Mario Kart (SNES) tournament with some fantastic prizes, while the event will also be graced by Super Mario Kart World Record Champion Sami Cetin, who will show off his skills and give would-be racers some tips.

Another exciting part of this event is the UK premiere of road trip documentary: Nintendo Quest. This film chronicles one man's quest to collect every official North American NES game ever released over 30 days without using online outlets. Along the way filmmaker Rob McCallum examines the enduring legacy of the NES and Nintendo.

You'll also have the chance to meet indie developers such as Utopian World of Sandwiches, and try out as-yet unreleased titles such as Chompy Chomp Chomp, a Wii U game that supports up to nine players at once!

StreetPass will naturally be a big part of this event, and we've got plenty of dedicated groups attending for this very reason - if you've got puzzle pieces left to collect, bring your 3DS along. This will be a night to remember for Nintendo fans, with tickets costing just £8 for adults and £5 for under 16s and students, with funds raised supporting the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge. Book today so you don't miss out on all the fun!
