March 10 is MAR10 Day – time to celebrate all things Mario!
This Mushroom Kingdom superstar is so famous that he has his very own holiday: MAR10 Day!
Every year, MAR10 Day (March 10, Mar. 10, MAR10 … get it?) is about two things: Mario and his many awesome fans.
This year’s big day is no exception. To celebrate MAR10 Day, Nintendo encourages people of all ages to enjoy a host of heartfelt and joyous activities to honour one of the most iconic video game characters of all time (and one who has kept overalls in style for more than 30 years).
Brighten up your Facebook profile photo with a Mario-themed frame!
On MAR10 Day and the long weekend following it, Australian and New Zealander Facebook users will be able to use a free Mario-themed frame for their Facebook profile photo from March 10 at 5 a.m. PT until March 12 at 11:59 p.m. PT.
The frame will add iconic items from the Super Mario Bros. universe to any photo or image, and is also available inside the Messenger Camera.
To find the frame in Messenger, simply open the Messenger app, take a photo and then tap the smiley face icon. This special frame will be the first one to appear in the top “Featured” section. Users can then just tap to add it to their photo.
On MAR10 Day and the long weekend following it, why not treat yourself to a Mario marathon of gaming goodness?
Why not switch up your Nintendo Switch with two neon red Joy-Con (or even two neon blue)?
How about putting your pedal to the metal with some epic races in Mario Kart 8… or getting a little crafty with course creations in Super Mario Maker?
Feeling competitive? This long weekend, why not round up your mates for some multiplayer matches in Mario Sports Superstars for Nintendo 3DS (out March 11th)?
No matter how you celebrate it, we hope that MAR10 Day will power up your Friday – and your long weekend…
