Mario Kart 7 joins Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush tour
Nickelodeon’s teen music phenomenon Big Time Rush will be joined on their latest tour by Nintendo 3DS demo stations allowing attendees to get to grips with Mario Kart 7.
Between July 5th to August 5th, those at select concert venues will be able to experience the game’s multiplayer features and kart customisation options, with those that already own a Nintendo 3DS able to download Mii characters based on the members of Big Time Rush – Kendall, Logan, James and Carlos.
Big Time Rush will also be incorporated within an upcoming television advertisement campaign for Mario Kart 7.
“Big Time Rush fans will discover a new kind of rush when they tear up the track with Mario,” commented 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.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to take Mario Kart 7 out on the road for our tour this summer,” added Big Time Rush. “We are all huge Nintendo fans and our new partnership provides a cool way to share the fun of Nintendo 3DS with people all over the country.”
