To celebrate the release of Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U, which launched in America back in May, Nintendo has teamed up with McDonald’s to roll out a line of happy meal toys based on the popular video game. To promote this partnership, a special event was held on July 12th in which the Mario Brothers handed out Mario Kart themed toys to children and cheered them on as they competed head-to-head in the kart racing game.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
