Nintendo - Small Logo Nintendo have announced a few more dates for their various tours around the country.

Today and tomorrow, you can find Mario Kart 7at Brent Cross Shopping Centre in London from 10am to 6pm, touring with retired English rugby captain Lawrence Dallaglio and retired English cricketer Freddie Flintoff.

We’re visiting three locations around the UK to show off the amazing Mario Kart 7 in all its glory. We’ll also be supporting the heroic efforts of Lawrence Dallaglio and Freddie Flintoff on their epic cycle ride from the birthplace of the Olympic Games in Greece to the Olympic Park in London.

You’ll be able to have a go at every track with all the new characters, items and kart features unlocked, so you can see just how incredible Mario Kart 7 really is. Not only that, but race against Lawrence and Freddie’s lap times in the Hero Challenge for the chance to win exclusive Mario Kart 7 prizes. We’ve got Pizza Express vouchers for the fastest lap each day, and the overall winner will get a Mario Kart 7 racing chair!

They’ll be moving down to Southampton to continue the tour in WestQuay from the 10th to the 15th April. Check the Nintendo UK website for more info on opening times.
