Play Nintendo Tour 2014 heads to several major cities.

This year’s three-month Play Nintendo Tour will be headlined by video game luminaries such as Mario, Donkey Kong, and even Pokemon, and will showcase the company’s latest hand-held console as it travels to a dozen major US cities.

The games scheduled to be shown during the tour include Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Yoshi’s New Island, Pokémon X and Y, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.

Nintendo states that, “Nintendo 2DS and the Play Nintendo Tour 2014 make a perfect pair for summer fun whether you’re a kid, a teen or a young-at-heart adult. Nintendo 2DS offers kids and anyone new to gaming a great first-time system, and the tour events offer everyone an exciting opportunity to play together.”

In addition to the games, guests to the Tour will be able to enjoy whimsical-themed gaming zones filled with iconic items (such as the banana-shaped seats in the Donkey Kong arena or a giant Poke Ball in the Pokémon section). You will also have a chance to meet a costumed Mario, Luigi,, Donkey Kong, and Kirby.
