The lights are on
Nintendo recently announced a mobile tour of its video games and themed photo-ops traveling across the United States over the course of three months. The tour stopped by the Mall of America in Minnesota which isn't too far from Game Informer's offices, so I went and took a few photos.
Mario Kart 8 was set up with ongoing tournaments taking place on the gigantic screen you see above.
Kiosks and photo-ops were set up for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and the new Yoshi's Island among others.
Those are banana-shaped beanbag chairs honoring Donkey Kong. There was also a DK emblazoned barrel you could stand in for photos.
This was a line of sorts for people wanting to participate in the Mario Kart 8 tournaments. You could play Mario Kart 7 while you waited.
There was a 2DS Super Mario kiosk inside the green pipe, and an iconic level ending flag on the other side for photos.
