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!

 

Nintendo Hosts Disney Art Academy Preview Event with Sabrina Carpenter

Disney Channel actress Sabrina Carpenter, or as I know her Maya Hart, stopped by the Nintendo NY store for a Disney Art Academy preview event.  Spending the morning with playing and getting lesson in Disney Art Academy from Sabrina Carpenter was AWESOME!!

Take a look, at my video below I will admit I was a little shy, how can I not be?!

Have you ever been shy meeting a celebrity?  Tell me about it below in the comments.

Update:  I am totally obsessed with this game, mom says when I am so quiet when playing it, she forgets I am even there. LOL

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!”

Yoshi’s Wooly World Playdate with FREE Printables!

It feels like we have planned and replanned my Yoshi Wooly World playdate with my friends like 4 times already.  My cousins were sick then my mom was sick, then my cousins again! What gives?! Finally I took control and said thats it, we are having my party.

So we did, mom drove me, my sis and cousin up to my friends house so the three of us, him and his brothers could have a Yoshi’s Wooly World Playdate, and untangle some fun! Take a look, Mom added in some party printables for you to use for a Yoshi Wooly World themed party.

Stay tuned for my full video coming next week on Yoshi’s Wooly World.

For us it isn’t a party unless Domino’s pizza is involved. Delivered in 30 minutes or less, and always delicious.  It’s always good to know when our pizza and dessert will arrive thanks to the Dominos tracker!

Splatoon on YouTube

Hey guys! JD here…. This is how my videos normally start out….

Well that is until my mom edits them LOL.  We spent a little over a week trying to understand the Elgato Capture HD60. When I say we I mean the parentals.

One week later, several trips to Best Buy, (for gear I am sure they did not need), I have this video of me playing Splatoon.  Obviously we need improvement but for a first timer it will have to do!

Have you ever played Splatoon?

Comic Con with my Dad

My dad works ALOT!  So spending time with him is sometimes hard.  You can’t imagine how excited, and grateful I was when Mom scored Dad and I two tickets to Comic Con!

Comic Con for us started with a breakfast at the Nintendo booth, and a little bit of playtime with YoKai Watch, due out 11/6/15.

Can’t wait to get your hands on it? I know the feeling, so I will let you in on a little secret you can actually pre-order the downloadable version HERE, or you can pre-order the retail version or the Bundle, (YO-KAI WATCH along with the Nintendo 2DS system) from Best Buy.

Review to come soon!

I then walked around with my dad and checked out some of the limited edition figures, toys and met some of the coolest characters.  Of course we shopped too!  Dad and I got the coolest Five Nights at Freddys t-shirts.

Super Mario Maker

#PlayNintendo Kid Reviewer JDPs World

Super Mario Maker is availble for the Wii U and it is the coolest game ever!

For starters Nintendo rocks!  They have now given us the chance to play Super Mario on our own board. We can create our own Mario levels by using our Wii U game pad, by simply dragging and dropping objects into the course of our choice. Yep thats right we can add, as many enemies, power ups, pipes as we want too.  I like the cool hand that comes across the screen while we are creating the levels, showing its really me creating each level.

Super Mario Maker JDP's World

 I love Super Mario Maker because…

  • I have the ability to use four different Super Mario game themes, six different level themes, to create, play and save each board.
  • I can make giant Gumbas stacked on top of each other and combine enemies for uncommon outcomes like having a pirhana plant shoot cannons etc
  • You can use amibos to change into different costumes by tapping the amibo on your Wii U gamepad or by completing the 100 Mario Challenge
  • Your copy of Super Mario Maker comes with a Mario amibo, and a special booklet filled with fun ideas to design courses, like a how to get started booklet.

Puzzles & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragon Super Mario Bros.

We traveled to different worlds and recruited Mushroom Kingdom baddies, like Goombas or Koopa Troopas, and Mario characters, including Toad and my favorite Yoshi while playing Puzzles Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition game!

In the Puzzle & Dragons Z game, we battled the 5 powerful sky dragons to rebuild the world and customize my team with so many different monsters.

Release date May 22 on the same cartridge! #PlayNintendo
