NINTENDO SWITCH!

As a Nintendo Kid Reviewer I was invited to a preview event to set out the new Nintendo Switch!

The graphics are intense!!

I loved every minute playing each game, and can not wait to get the Nintendo Switch in my hands on March 3. Take a look!

As you may know by now I did break my arm, so yes my little sister did beat my butt in Street Fighter 2… I need a rematch once the cast is off!

 

Happy MAR10 Day! #Playnintendo

Today, March 10 is officially MAR10 Day!  As if my family and I needed another reason to enjoy the likes of our favorite Nintendo character.

Celebrated by Mario fans each year, the 10th of March is a special day to remember his impact on pop culture, thanks to how the day on the calendar resembles the beloved character’s name. Nintendo is celebrating with fans by listing some of the famous mustached hero’s achievements throughout the past year and by asking fans to participate by tweeting their favorite Mario moments using the #Mar10Day hashtag.

Mario’s Year in Review:

o   Mario had a big milestone in 2015! He celebrated 30 years since he leaped his way into people’s hearts in 1985’s Super Mario Bros. Fans across the country celebrated with him in this fun video.

o   Nintendo launched Super Mario Maker, a game that lets fans create and share their ownSuper Mario Bros. levels. So far, 6.2 million levels have been created by fans!

o   Facebook’s engineers celebrated Mario by creating their very own Super Mario Maker levels for fans to play. Check them out here.

o   A special 30th Anniversary Mario amiibo was released in a classic 8-bit design. The limited-edition figure was a tribute to the original Super Mario Bros. game that launched for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985.

o   Mario hit the courts with the launch of Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash for Wii U. In the game, fans play as Mario and friends in intense tennis competitions.

o   For the first time, Mario teamed up with his paper version, Paper Mario, in the colorful action RPG Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam for Nintendo 3DS.

o   With the help of his voice actor, Charles Martinet, Mario celebrated the grand opening of the Nintendo NY store in Rockefeller Plaza.

…and Mario will have more to celebrate in 2016! Competing with his friends in the Olympic Games, Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games is coming to Nintendo 3DS on March 18 (with the Wii U version launching this summer).

Don’t forget to wish all your friends and family “Happy MAR10 Day!”

Review Wii U Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze #PlayNintendo

#PlayNintendo Kid Reviewer JDPs World

I am ready to help Donkey Kong and his friends take their homes back from the Vikings in the Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze game.   Donkey Kong’s island was invaded by strong and powerful, sea creatures vikings,  like polar bears, sea lions.  After these vikings take over, it will take Donkey Kong and his family to get their home back.

Five reasons I love playing Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

1.  Dixie Kong is back to join the adventure and she has the ability to spin her ponytail while she jumps to fly higher than before.  Diddy Kong is also back and can fly using a jet-back. Donkey Kong is lucky because he can team up with either one.  Each character has special abilities and they can visit certain areas using their abilities and explore secrets in those places.

2. Donkey Kong can pull things out of the ground to reveal items, he can also ground pound,  and pick up enemies and throw them at other enemies.  Mom says it reminds her of Super Mario Borthers 2 when Mario and Luigi pulled vegetables out of the ground to throw at their enemies.

3.  In other Donkey Kong games the camera showed only side views, in Tropical Freeze there is a revolving camera which shows different angles, which has never been seen before on Donkey Kong OOHHHH, AHHHH!

4. Donkey Kong and his family have to travel across five islands which include underwater areas and frozen environments  to get closer and closer to Donkey Kong island to battle vikings to regain access to their homes. Sounds like it could be a fun family vacation if they weren’t trying to get back to rescue their island from the vikings.

5. Love that Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is a multi-player game because now my cousin and I can team up and play together.

The game launches on December 6 so be sure to add it to your Holiday wish-list!
