Nintendo and Old Navy are teaming up this Black Friday to deliver one of the most epically friendly and fun deals of the holiday season. None other than Mario himself will be the hero of Old Navy’s “Cheermageddon” Black Friday Giveaway. On Nov. 23, visitors who line up early and purchase at least $40 in merchandise at Old Navy locations across the United States will have a chance to receive a free New Super Mario Bros. U game for Nintendo’s groundbreaking Wii U system ($59.99 retail value of game; quantities limited and vary per store). Throughout Black Friday, Old Navy shoppers will also receive a special game card in stores for a chance to win one of 1,000 Wii U systems ($299 retail value). In Canada, the giveaways will take place on Saturday, Nov. 24. Visit www.cheermageddon.com or www.cheermageddon.ca for more information.
From Nov. 22-24, one-third of Old Navy stores across the United States will feature interactive demo stations where shoppers can sample New Super Mario Bros. U on the new Wii U. These stores will also have Mario-themed photo backdrops where fans can snap fun pictures with Mario and his Mushroom Kingdom friends. As a bonus for visitors to Old Navy’s flagship stores in San Francisco (801 Market St., San Francisco, CA, 94103) and New York (150 W. 34th St., New York, NY, 10001), Nintendo will provide extra activities with additional New Super Mario Bros. U demo kiosks and photo opportunities with Nintendo costumed characters. Together, Nintendo and Old Navy aim to keep value-minded holiday shoppers smiling as they seek out the must-have entertainment gift of the holiday season and fashionable clothing items for loved ones.
New Super Mario Bros. U adds a new star to the side-scrolling show: you! Play as Mario, Luigi, Toad, or your Mii on a new adventure to save Princess Peach. Up to five players can team up, with one player using the GamePad to create routes through levels, distract enemies, and discover hidden items and pathways. Finish levels as fast as you can in the co-op Boost Rush Mode, where you're forced to keep moving by a screen that never stops scrolling. Go for the high score in single or multiplayer Challenge Mode. You can seamlessly switch between single-player play on TV and on the GamePad, so you can keep playing even when someone else wants to use the big screen.
