Malls across America are locking down Cinnabons in heightened anticipation of tomorrow's "Nintendo Holiday Mall Experience" debut. Now in season, the hands-on Wii demonstrations and Nintendo DSi sampling stations will be abloom in mall ecosystems everywhere, set up to show would-be present-buyers and would-be-present-openers about their need for Nintendo.
Shoppers can drop in on Mario, Donkey Kong, Pikachu and more than 20 of the latest games for Wii and DSi. Also seems like a good place to drop off your shopping partner if they get fussy while you're busy playing uber-consumer instead.
Games for the Wii system to be showcased during Holiday Mall Experience include Donkey Kong Country Returns, PokéPark™ Wii: Pikachu’s Adventure, Kirby’s Epic Yarn™, Wii Party, Metroid™: Other M, Wii Fit™ Plus, Super Mario Galaxy™ 2, New Super Mario Bros.™ Wii, Wii Sports Resort™, Mario Kart™ Wii, Disney Epic Mickey (Disney Interactive Studios), uDraw™ Studio along with uDraw™GameTablet™ (THQ), Just Dance® 2 (Ubisoft) and NBA JAM (EA Sports). Featured titles for the Nintendo DS family of systems will include Golden Sun™: Dark Dawn, Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!, Art Academy™, Pokémon™ Ranger: Guardian Signs, Professor Layton and the Unwound Future™, DRAGON QUEST IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies, Brain Age™ 2: More Training in Minutes a Day!, New Super Mario Bros.™ and Warner Bros.
