NINTENDO 3DS JOINS VANS WARPED TOUR TO SPREAD THREE-DIMENSIONAL SUMMER FUN

June 27, 2011

In addition to checking out musical acts such as Gym Class Heroes, Simple Plan and Paramore, Vans Warped Tour attendees can visit a special Nintendo tent equipped with playable Nintendo 3DS systems and software. Visitors can experiment with the Nintendo 3DS Camera, create customized Mii™ characters with the built-in Mii Maker™ application and play video games including The Legend of Zelda™: Ocarina of Time™ 3D, Super Street Fighter® IV 3D Edition, DEAD OR ALIVE® Dimensions, Super Monkey Ball™ 3D, Madden NFL Football, RIDGE RACER® 3D and Resident Evil®: The Mercenaries 3D. Players can also have fun with augmented-reality features and AR Games™, using oversized AR Cards and temporary AR Card tattoos to view virtual characters in real-world settings and interact with them in interesting ways. Attendees who bring their own Nintendo 3DS systems can use them to exchange Mii characters with other tour-goers using the built-in StreetPass™ feature.
