Sept. 18, 2012— Gabrielle Douglas of Virginia Beach, Va./Chow's Gymnastics and Dance Institute, will join Glee cast member Dianna Agron and Modern Family's Sarah Hyland in the new Nintendo ad campaign, "Play As You Are," set to launch on Oct. 1. Douglas will specifically endorse New Super Mario Bros. 2, which launched Aug. 19.

Through the women's endorsements of their favorite Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL hand held systems, the campaign is designed to show how all kinds of women and young girls can explore their interests and express their individuality using theportable Nintendo 3DS— whether they consider themselves gamers or not.

Douglas' new endorsement comes in the midst of the 40-city Kellogg's Tour of Gymnastics Champions, which kicked off on Sept. 8 in San Jose, Calif., and will end on Nov. 18 in Brooklyn, N.Y. For tickets to the Kellogg's Tour, please visit
