Nintendo Celebrates MAR10 Day by Giving Back

Every year on March 10, the video game industry recognizes it as MAR10 Day. It’s a holiday gamers love and one Nintendo wants to use to make sure their fans are having fun. This year is filled with charitable giveaways and sales.

The company has teamed with Starlight Children’s Foundation to let seriously ill children experience entertainment and video games during their hospital stay. Nintendo has designed several gowns featuring various Mario characters. These will get kids feeling more confident and happier while giving them a huge pop of color! They get to become superstars in more ways than one. Take a look at the designs below.

Other fans can have fun with a Mario-themed photo app while using Facebook. Give it a little tap and it decks out your images with decorations from the Mushroom Kingdom. Then, check out Amazon and My Nintendo for some huge savings. Select games will receive a 20%-30% discount. But do it early as the deal only lasts for the day.

Lastly, attendees and viewers of both PAX East and the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2017 will feature the Nintendo Switch and a couple of titles. Experience Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in-person to get your fix of the Switch.

We encourage all gamers, whether Nintendo fans or not, to join in on the holiday celebrations. Whether you choose to watch the Super Mario Bros. movie, have a bash with Mario Party or dress up like the hero plumber. No matter what you do, it’s a great day to enjoy Mario!
