Let Kirby feed you in NYC, SF, or Houston next week

If you happen to be in NYC, San Francisco, or Houston next week, you'll be able to celebrate the launch of Kirby: Mass Attack in true Kirby style -- with a display of gluttony. Nintendo is bringing "Kirby Snack Attack" trucks to those three cities, providing fans with game demos and "frozen fruit treats," which should be of particular interest to those in Houston who accidentally find themselves outside, in range of the deadly sun.

Kirby's truck will be in NYC's Rockefeller Plaza (also home to the Nintendo World Store) on September 14, somewhere in the SF Bay Area on September 14-15, and in Houston's Upper Kirby neighborhood (get it?) from September 16-18. Nintendo will tweet more specific information as the dates approach. Please don't get ice cream on the DS demo units.

Nintendo Marks Launch of Kirby Mass Attack Game with Customized Kirby Snack Attack Trucks

REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- One of the most unique characters in the world of video games is about to give hungry fans a fun way to attack snack time. To celebrate the upcoming launch of the Kirby™ Mass Attack video game for the Nintendo DS™ family of hand-held systems, Nintendo is deploying customized Kirby Snack Attack Trucks to deliver frozen fruit treats to consumers and fans in select U.S. cities. While enjoying these tasty snacks, participants can enjoy hands-on demos of Kirby Mass Attack, in which gobbling up fruit allows players to accumulate a mass of up to 10 Kirbys at a time. The week before the game's Sept. 19 launch, the trucks will be making stops near New York City's Rockefeller Plaza, the San Francisco Bay Area and the aptly named Upper Kirby neighborhood of Houston.

In Kirby Mass Attack, players join the iconic pink hero for a wild new adventure to save planet Popstar from darkness. Using the intuitive touch-screen controls of the Nintendo DS, Nintendo DSi™ or Nintendo DSi XL™, players can fling, dash around or gather as many as 10 Kirbys simultaneously. As players use their mob of Kirbys to bash through obstacles and defeat various enemies, players can even collect medals from numerous stages across five colorful, side-scrolling worlds to unlock fun extras and mini-games.

Kirby Snack Attack Truck Tour Schedule
Sept. 14: Rockefeller Plaza, New York City
Sept. 14-15: San Francisco Bay Area
Sept. 16-18: Upper Kirby neighborhood, Houston
