Retro Video Games Are Making a Comeback This Weekend
This is a shoutout to the 90s kids (or kids from today’s generation that somehow got roped into things your elder siblings or cousins used to do). Do you miss the video games we used to play during our childhood? We’re talking old school Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong and Mario Kart 64 here. If a part of you is tired of the Candy Crush, Farmville and Angry Birds sagas of today and misses the awkward 2D pixelated cartoon characters you used to love controlling, you’re in for a treat this weekend!

Kyo’s Game Mart and Zendersons Store will be organising Malaysia Ninty Gathering 2016, the first ever retro video games event in Malaysia! This fan-powered event will celebrate video games launched over the years from back when we were still kids, especially games released specifically for Nintendo home-based and handheld consoles. More than just an exhibition of these consoles, you'll also get to play with them at the event! Expect to re-try your hands at the Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo 64, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo WiiU, Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition, and Family Computer Mini
In fact, if you'd love to own a classic console again, Zendersons Store will also be bringing their range of retro video game consoles including classics like the Atari consoles and Sega consoles. Come and revive your video game collection!

Additionally, you can bring along your Gameboy or Nintendo 3DS console to play at the designated play area. Some of the retro games you will get to play include Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, Mario Kart 64, Super Smash Bros Melee, Wii Sports, and Super Smash Bros WiiU. The company will also be releasing the Pokémon Sun and Moon video games today, which you can purchase at the event this weekend. You can also test out the game right away at the designated area!
