Nintendo Hosting Super Mario Parties at Senior Communities

Nintendo has recently launched a rather heart-warming campaign to bring generations together around the Wii this holiday season. Representatives from Nintendo began visiting ten different Erickson and Leisure Care Communities on December 4th to introduce its growing crop of Wii-playing seniors and their family members to New Super Mario Bros. Wii in an effort to "encourage every generation to sample the game's unique blend of imaginative, multiplayer fun."

Special Nintendo gift packages were also shipped to an additional 42 retirement communities which Nintendo hopes will "incorporate video games into their regular activities." It's not the first time that Nintendo has launched this type of promotional effort, and games like Wii Sports have already met with a positive reception among many seniors. Read more »
