Nintendo joins with the National Park Foundation

Nintendo will bring along its fitness-oriented games when it joins the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, in attending the White House Easter Egg Roll. This year’s theme is “Hop into Healthy, Swing into Shape,” which means Nintendo bringing Wii Fit U and Wii Sports Club to the event is sensible, especially considering that the Egg Roll supports First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign.

Nintendo of America announced today that it will join with the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, to bring fun, active-play video games to the White House Easter Egg Roll. Nintendo will be at the event with Wii Fit U and Wii Sports Club, two Wii U games that ask players to get up off their couches and get active. The two games align with this year’s theme of the event, “Hop into Healthy, Swing into Shape,” which encourages children and families to live healthier and more active lifestyles. Visitors can play Wii Fit U and Wii Sports Club on the Ellipse before they head over to the nearby South Lawn of the White House. In addition, Mario and Luigi costumed characters will also be on site to greet guests, take photos with fans and cheer on families as they play.
