We'll be going a long way with the kids soon. To transform the “Are we there soon? to "Wait a minute, I'll finish my game and get out of the car", we have several options for you.
Kirby: Planet Robobot
Let's start with Kirby: Planet Robobot, the latest installment of the friendly little pink guy who sucks in his opponents and evolves by finding powers along the way. It's a very entertaining platform game in which Kirby must save the world from the evil robots who are coming to destroy it. It can be played alone for many hours in adventure mode or with others if the children want to play Team Kirby Clash, a mini-game included with the main game. If you intend to go very far by car, it is really an ally of choice.
Do your children know about the Yo-Kai Watch series that we now find on Télétoon? Extremely popular in Japan, this series is quietly carving out a place here among children aged 4 to 10. It's the funny story of a boy who meets a Yo-kai, a spirit whose power is matched only by questionable jokes andwho helps our hero restore peace to the city. It is by wearing the Yo-Kai Watch that he can see all the Yo-Kai who live in our world.
You can also search for Yo-Kai alone or with friends in the game for 3DS or 2DS that you will find here. The full game is beautiful and entertaining on its own, but the mini-games add some very fun elements to it for kids who will, among other things, have to search for Yo-Kai around them with a magnifying glass. Again, it's a great road and rainy day partner for kids.
Super Smash Bros
Super Smash Bros is a fighting game that pits all of Nintendo's well-known heroes against each other. You will have to fight there in small rather fast fights and win two out of three rounds. Without being violent, this game is nevertheless very engaging and you will quickly get caught up in the game of wanting to be the best in the family. Go ahead, protect the honor of your favorite characters!
Mario Kart 7
Mario Kart is truly a timeless video game classic that couldn't be more appropriate for the holidays. You'll be able to choose a character from all that are available, including Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, and Rosalina, my favorite, who is fast as the wind and solid as a rock. Teach your kids good control of slides, they'll need it to beat you at the end of the day!
Pokemon Omega Ruby, like all games in the Pokemon series, is an adventure game that lets you adopt Pokemon and level them up to save the townspeople. In this one, you will first have to travel to Bourg-en-Vol to fight your rival with the help of Prof Seko. However, this is only the beginning of the adventure and you will have to do your best to become a Pokémon master and complete the adventure, which should fill the downtime of your vacation at the same time.
