The event is free and open to the public, with a special private event which includes a Mario Kart competition for fans who RSVP in advance. During this time, the House of Vans will be transformed into an oasis for gamers and shoe enthusiasts alike. Vans said there will be Nintendo consoles from each generation for attendees to play, with games picked from various popular franchises such as Super Mario World, Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong and Duck Hunt. If that is not enough of an enticement, Vans said there will be Nintendo memorabilia and game tournaments spread throughout the exhibition.
For people who are not interested in the video games, Vans said they will provide carnival games for their guests. Vans did not say if there will be a similar launch party around the world, but these Vans will be available for purchase in June.
