Overview

Nintendo has announced that their Nintendo Connection Tour from last year will continue this year in Australia. From the 24th of September until the 15th of October, they will be touring all around Australia. For the first time, Skyward Sword will be available to play on the Wii, as well as other exciting games for the 3DS, such as Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land and Kid Icarus Uprising. Hit the jump to read more about it!

Here is the full description of this coming event:

Nintendo announces that the nationwide Nintendo Connection Tour is back for 2011!

Commencing at Westfield Southland in Victoria on the 24th of September before coming to a shopping centre near you, the Nintendo Connection Tour will run until the 15th of October, offering Nintendo fans and new players alike the opportunity to sample some exciting new releases, as well as to play some family favourites!

There is something for everyone at the Nintendo Connection Tour! For the first time, the highly anticipated The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be playable on Wii as well as exciting new titles on Nintendo 3DS: Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land and Kid Icarus Uprising, to name just a few. The activity will all be housed in a set inspired by The Legend of Zelda series, the adventure that has spanned a quarter of a century.

Don’t forget, if you have a Nintendo 3DS, to bring it along to participate in StreetPass – a fun function of Nintendo 3DS whereby you can automatically exchange game data between Nintendo 3DS consoles. Swap Mii characters, exchange puzzle pieces, meet other puppies in nintendogs + cats, take part in Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition Figurine Battles and more!

Available on the set will also be the Pokédex 3D application on Nintendo 3DS. Pokédex 3D is available for free on Nintendo 3DS via the Nintendo eShop, allowing players to view Pokémon in 3D and even use Pokémon AR (Augmented Reality) Markers to watch them come to life and take photos of them! Pokémon AR Markers will be available at the tour for all to try. Those who bring along their Nintendo 3DS can also take home some special photos- they will need to download the free Pokédex 3D from the Nintendo eShop to participate in this activity.

A special competition will also be available at each location, where one winner will receive all games shown on tour that are yet to be released (upon the launch of those games). To be eligible for the competition, and to receive a special Nintendo Connection Tour lanyard, you need to be one of the first 25 people to enter the tour set on each given activity day, so be sure to get there early!

There will be heaps of other giveaways each day and competitions for people of all ages and all skill levels, so don’t miss out! Visit the Nintendo Connection Tour 2011 Official Website for dates and further information.

    Victorians, I propose a road trip. Featuring Zelda Re-orchestrated music turned up very loud and car windows rolled down very low. Occasional head-bopping at passers-by is optional, but recommended.
