Super Mario takes off into the Galaxy – Give him a hug goodbye!
PLUS A SIGNED COPY OF SUPER MARIO GALAXY 2 BY MR MIYOMOTO IS UP FOR GRABS!!!
Mario is jetting off into the galaxy in AUSTRALIA on 1 July and Nintendo want you to send him off with a final hug! In fact, Nintendo want to establish a record.
To celebrate the much anticipated launch of Super Mario Galaxy 2, (available in stores all over AUSTRALIA on July 1) Mario himself, and TV and radio personality Jabba will be at The Nintendo Experience, EB Games, Swanston Street, Melbourne at 7:00am, July 1 to establish the record for the most amount of hugs by a mascot character in 20 minutes!
The current world record was established by a 51 year old Ohio man, Jeff Ondash on Valentine’s Day 2010. Jeff hugged an amazing 7,777 in a 24 hour period outside the Paris Las Vegas hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip. Unfortunately Mario needs a rest after 20 minutes (it’s tiring jumping around and collecting all those coins)! For this reason, Mario will hope to hug more than 108 people in 20 minutes to establish a new record for a character mascot.
To commemorate this, every hugger who attends on the day will get their own personal photo of the occasion and will be one of the first in Australia to experience the spectacular new items and new stages of the 3D galactic video game, Super Mario Galaxy 2. They will be the first to run, jump and fly through a 3D dazzling galaxy, bursting with imagination.
Plus everyone that purchases or collects their pre-order copy of Super Mario Galaxy 2 from EB Games Swanston Street on 1 July, between 7am – 8:30am will have their chance to win a signed copy of the game, by Mr Miyomoto!!! This is a unique copy, signed by the genius behind Mario. Make sure you pre-order your copy today at EB Games, Swanston Street for your chance to WIN!
Please note, you must be at EB Games, Swanston Street, Melbourne for the draw at 8:30am, July 1, to collect the signed game if you are the lucky winner.
There will also be giveaways up for grabs for the best dressed, as well as competitions throughout the morning. So get your best Super Mario Galaxy 2 themed outfits ready and be part of the fun on July 1!
