Nintendo cooks up some fun to beat the winter chills. 

Over the following weeks, gamers in Melbourne will have plenty to do at the Nintendo Experience store on Swanston Street.

The events kick off next Saturday, June 30, with Super Mario Spectacular: a day of Mario related fun to celebrate the coming of two New Super Mario games this year.
Mario fans can relive some of Mario's classic adventures, and those who complete their tour of Mario's history will receive a showbag full of goodies. At 2pm a Mario cosplay competition will also be judged, with games and trophies as prizes!

Next, on Wednesday July 4, there will be a Mario Tennis Open tournament where players compete in single elimination rounds towards trophies and additional prizes, with lanyards given to all entrants. 

Finally, on Sunday July 15, the store will hold a Pokémon Black and White tournament, where you can pit your Pokémon in double battles against opponents, in single elimination rounds.

All three events will be held from 10am to 4pm at The Nintendo Experience above EB Games at 67 Swanston St in Melbourne, Australia.
