My kids have loved playing on their 3DS gaming systems for many years now so when I got an invite for an exclusive Nintendo 3DS Be a Kid For a Day VIP event I knew they would love it. Share what it’s like to “Be a Kid For a Day” using the hashtag #3DSKidForADay #Contest and tagging @NintendoAmerica across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and you can win cool prizes.
We started out with at California Pizza Kitchen where the kids got to try out some cool games on a 3DS system. The kids are very comfortable with the system as they have been playing on them for years. We learned about the new 3DS XL system that has face-tracking to adjust images based on your viewing angle to provide a clearer picture.
It also has new controls. Games leap to life with super-stable 3D. Plus all the 3DS games can still be played and also games from previous systems like Nintendo DS and DSi. There will be some new titles that will only be available on the new 3DS XL System. There is also an improved camera and browsing ability. You can also transfer photos, music and other files between a PC via a wireless network!
Mario and Luigi even stopped by! The kids were having fun being silly.
Mario even played some games. They also told us about the 2DS system that is only $79.99.
We had some fun on Snapchat with the Play Nintendo filter.
We then headed over to a fun play area that is setup in the South Shore Plaza in Braintree. It is there until Sunday. There were different stations set up where kids would play different games including Donkey Kong Country, Pokemon, Kirby, Mario Kart, Super Mario Brothers 2, Yoshi's Island, and Yoki Watch.
There were some fun picture opportunities. Here are the kids in a Mario Kart.
Mario actually driving Mario Kart and Mario jumping to his flag.
The kids had so much fun playing all of these games.
After kids played all the games in the stations they got to go to a claw game and try and win a prize. There were also competitions of game play.

What a fun time! Nintendo continues to have cool new games and a great gaming system.
