Nintendo News: Have Fun in the Sun with Nintendo’s Summer Gaming List

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Summers are packed with fun activities, whether going to the beach,
taking a road trip with the family or even just lounging around the
house to enjoy the extra-long days and warm nights. But why not add a
little Nintendo magic to accompany all of these classic summer moments?
You can with Nintendo
and Nintendo
, which both can be played anywhere you go.

To help guide your summer Nintendo 3DS play – there are tons of great
games and experiences! – Nintendo has released a Summer Gaming List.
Think of this as a video game version of all those summer reading lists
you had when you were a kid. This list is great for any kind of player,
whether you are a more casual gamer looking for something easy to pick
up and play, or a serious fan ready for a challenging adventure. Taking
on the list is also a great way to enhance your knowledge about games
for Nintendo systems. (You’ll know the difference between Meta Knight
and a Hyrulian Knight!)

The list is simple: Just start with the game that feels best for you and
work your way through the rest. You can battle enemies with Kirby while
waiting for the burgers to be done in your backyard, paint princesses
while playing in the park or unleash a Final Smash while relaxing on the
beach. You can even race with Mario and friends during a road trip to
your favorite summer location (just watch out for flying Banana Peels!).
