Create your own Nintendo themed B-day with Nintendo's help!

Mario and Yoshi THIS IS AWESOME! If I was still a kid I would be nagging my parents for a Nintendo themed birthday party. My good pals at Nintendo just sent me the below press release on how Nintendo can help customize and plan your Nintendo Birthday Party of your dreams! On Nintendo.com you can create invitations, learn how to make a Warp Pipe Centerpiece, create fun Mario Party 10 and Mario Kart 8 posters, "how to's" on creating Nintendo themed snacks, and Nintendo games to play at your party. One of them I am excited to announce here and can't wait till it comes out is Super Mario Maker which is to be released on September 11th. I played this at E3 and LOVED it, anyone at any level of gaming can play and have fun. 

To view the full press release from Nintendo scroll below and have a Happy Nintendo Birthday!
