Kick back at PBteen this holiday season and try out Super Mario 3D World for Wii U
This holiday season, take a break from shopping at select PBteen locations to hang out with Mario on the Wii U console. Nintendo and Pottery Barn have set up Wii U consoles in various in-store lounges where you can play the upcoming Super Mario 3D World game—before it’s released on Nov. 22.
You might be able to bring the fun home with you, too. Fill out an entry form and drop it off in a ballot box at PBteen for the chance to win a Super Mario 3D World game and a Mario and Luigi Wii U Deluxe Set, which includes the Wii U console, a GamePad controller and the New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U games on one disc, and more.
If you can’t make it to a store, we’ve got you covered: there’s also an online sweepstakes. Check it out at http://www.pbteen.com/wiiusweeps.
