Mario Kart 7 Hits the Road with Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush
Those of you waiting to combine your passion for Mario Kart with your passion for teenage boy-bands, wait no longer: Mario Kart 7 will be on tour this summer with Nickelodeon’s teen band Big Time Rush. Touring across the country, concert venues will be equipped with Mario Kart 7 sampling stations so that even people without 3DS systems will be able to get in on the excitement.
Each event will have a host of prizes available as well as special photo opportunities. Those who bring their own 3DS systems can download Miis based on Kendall, Logan, James, and Carlos — the members of Big Time Rush. They will also be able to access special content via Nintendo Zone hotspots.
“Big Time Rush fans will discover a new kind of rush when they tear up the track with Mario,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “The frenetic fun of Mario Kart 7 makes a great match with the band’s energetic music. The chance to get hands-on with Nintendo 3DS will make each of these concerts even more memorable for attendees, whether they’re experienced gamers or newcomers.”
