MAR10 Day Is Coming!

MAR10 Day Is Coming

What's up my NintenNERDS, it is your favorite big red shareholder here!

That was horrible, I'm sorry.

March has always been a big day for Nintendo as the 10th signifies Mario Day. If you're confused why, it is because MAR 10 spells Mario. There you go Wabba!

Anyway, Nintendo has some plans for MAR10 day that seem like a lot of fun.

From Nintendo:
