This past long weekend (including today) has been a very busy time for everyone and this week is even more intense because it’s “Back to School” season.

Saturday our expert in Toys & Play was in attendance at the Cirque du Soleil Crystal event in Halifax, with her Grandmother and younger brother. On Sunday, the dynamic duo of brother and sister spent the entire day at Oaklawn Farm Zoo.

Today here at EMG we are enjoying the last holiday before everyone goes back to school so we have suspended production and decided to delay our upcoming releases until Thursday, September 5th since everyone will officially be back to school/university/daycare by then.

We will be releasing Super Mario Bros 3 – World 8 on the 5th as a special weekend treat, Super Mario 2 (Japanese) – Worlds 1 through 4 on Friday the 6th. We hope to be rolling out NES Quest, next week as well and will be working on upcoming releases for our new project EMG News on a new channel that we are currently working on.

One final note, since it is back to school season, please remember to drive carefully and please slow down in school zones. As a reminder, if the local speed limit is 50kph, the school zone is reduced to 30kph. If the local speed limit is 80kph, the school zone is reduced to 50kph. Always remember that its illegal to pass a school bus when its flashing red lights are on.
