WHAT: Nintendo celebrates the release of Big Brain Academy™: Wii Degree with the Father’s Day Challenge at the Nintendo World store in Rockefeller Plaza. Dads and kids of all ages will team up for a bracket-style playoff to determine who will take home the honors. Teams will use the new multiplayer features and split-screen views as they “weigh” their brain against their competitors. The top two teams of the 20-team tournament will face off for the title of “Biggest Brain.”

Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree, which debuts on June 11, is the Wii™ sequel to the successful Nintendo DS™ title that allows players to exercise their brains in five areas: thinking, memorization, computation, analysis and identification. Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree includes 15 new stimulating activities and features three new multiplayer modes, which allow friendly competition with up to eight different players.

Copies of Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree will be available at the Nintendo World store. Attendees can also receive graduation-themed Nintendo giveaways throughout the day.
