Popular game-maker Nintendo hosted an event for Teen and Child Stars, as well as members of the media to celebrate TODAY’s launch of the Yoshi’s New Island game for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
In the game, which launches today, March 14, Yoshi bashes and thrashes his way through an island obstacle course by throwing around Mega Eggdozers, which are huge egg-shaped objects that have the power to destroy anything in their path!
Guests included August Maturo, Sloane Morgan Siegel, Blake Garret Rosenthal, Austin Anderson, Jacob Hopkins, Amber Montana, Bella Thorne, Daphne Blunt, Kerri Medders, Emery Thomas Kelly, Ricky Garcia, Garret Clayton, Austin North, Caitlyn Carmichael, J.J Totah, Keahu Kahuanui, Julianna Rose, Benjamin Stockham and Jon Klaasen.
During the event, the young stars participated in fun Yoshi-themed activities like seeing celebrities decorate a five-foot-tall Mega Eggdozer by tossing slime-filled balloons. The child and teen stars also got hands-on time with Yoshi’s New Island game and enjoyed an assortment of beverages and snacks at the beautiful Quixote Studios in West Hollywood.
