A couple of months ago, Nintendo announce they will be doing their Play Nintendo Tour for 2016. Now it’s the middle of summer and the play tour has arrived to Houston Memorial Mall! We’re not strangers to the Play Nintendo Tour as you can tell.
This years layout was a lot smaller than the one previous one, and with a high focus on the 3DS. However we still had huge amounts of fun at the event!
