May 2017 Gamer E for Everyone Block Review Wrap-Up
The May Gamer E Block had family-friendly video game collectibles the entire family will love. This month’s exclusive gamer Mario Run t-shirt features a race-inspired design. Also in the “racing” spirit is the Sonic the Hedgehog Mini Vinyl figure. This blind box has 1 of 14 Sonic figures.
The Kirby plush is super cute. He measures about 5.5″ across and is the perfect stuffed animal to introduce kids to classic video games.
Splatoon 2 is set to be released on July 21, 2017. In this intense first person and multi-player game, players become “Inklings”who must spray their ink to defeat waves of incoming attacks. This month’s poster captures all the incoming Platoon 2 action.
We haven’t played Toki Tori 2+ yet but it looks like a lot of fun! We love the bright colors and the design of the characters. The game environment looks simple, yet engaging. Here’s the official trailer for Toki Tori 2+:
Finally, the Pac-Man pin is a unique piece of video game “flare.” The ghost really does seem to “blink” as you move the pin from side to side.
