FIRST EVER UK SHOWING OF NEW SUPER MARIO BROS. 2 ON NINTENDO 3DS

Games Britannia will be host to the first ever UK consumer showing of New Super Mario Bros. 2, a side-scrolling adventure game for Nintendo 3DS featuring Mario, Luigi and lots of other favourite characters from the Mario universe.

Those keen to get hands-on will not be disappointed, with every level filled with coin collecting opportunities, the Mushroom Kingdom is bursting with adventure. The game records all the coins players collect throughout their quest, so completing a level is only part of the fun.

Nintendo 3DS enthusiasts at Games Britannia will also get the opportunity to play one of the biggest games to hit Nintendo 3DS this year, Kid Icarus: Uprising, and celebrate the revival of hero Pit with a dedicated Swap Shop and battle zone for the collectible AR Cards. AR cards will be available to win for all those victorious in battle.

That’s not all, for those looking to get hands on with the Wii, the quirky new rhythm-based game Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise will be available to demo with exclusive souvenir posters on offer for all those who trial the game.
