Nintendo Launches Nationwide Holiday Mall Experience

Want to have some fun while you shop? Nintendo is making it easier than ever for holiday consumers to sample the year’s most sought-after games on its Wii™ and Nintendo DSi™ video game systems. Starting Nov. 23, the Nintendo Holiday Mall Experience will touch down in 35 shopping malls from coast to coast, offering free hands-on demos of some of Nintendo’s hottest games. Whether they’re seeking gifts for friends and family members or simply taking a break from the season’s hustle and bustle, attendees can enjoy an interactive glimpse into the rich variety of entertainment offered by Nintendo.

Using the Wii console’s popular motion controls, Nintendo Holiday Mall Experience participants can play activities like archery and basketball in Wii Sports Resort™, explore the four-person multiplayer excitement of New Super Mario Bros. ™ Wii, step onto the Wii Balance Board™ accessory to experience new activities and enhanced features in the fitness-themed Wii Fit™ Plus, and more. They can also pick up a Nintendo DSi system to sample hand-held games such as Style Savvy, which lets players manage their own virtual boutique, the puzzle-based Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box™ and the highly anticipated The Legend of Zelda™: Spirit Tracks after its launch on Dec. 7.

In addition to retail game offerings, visitors can learn about the wide array of games and applications available for download via the online Wii Shop Channel and Nintendo DSi Shop. They can also experiment with fun hardware features like the Wii MotionPlus ™ accessory – which delivers exceptional precision in Wii games such as Wii Sports Resort – and the built-in cameras and photo-manipulation features of the portable Nintendo DSi system. Additionally, Nintendo representatives will be on hand at each location to guide demos, answer questions and help with holiday gift-giving ideas.
