Video game and Summer Olympic enthusiasts will be thrilled to hear that gold-medal Olympic gymnast and America’s sweetheart Gabrielle “Gabby” Douglas is set to appear on behalf of Nintendo, at the Nintendo World Store at 10 Rockefeller Plaza in New York, New York on Tuesday, September 25th from 3 p.m.-5 p.m. According to Business Wire, “as a Mario fan, Douglas leaped at the opportunity to work with Nintendo for its new Nintendo 3DS “Play As You Are” campaign, which is designed to show women and girls that you don’t need to be a gamer to enjoy Nintendo 3DS.”
She will be joined at the event by who else, but Mario of the famed Super Mario Bros, greeting fans and signing autographs! Be sure to get there early for your chance to meet Miss Gabby Douglas and have her sign your Nintendo 3DS products or photographs. For Gabby fans outside of New York, you’ll have a chance to see Gabby in Nintendo’s broadcast advertising campaigns soon as she goes for a new type of gold, collecting coins in New Super Mario Bros 2.
