Mmm. 1 week till I get to play some Wii. I may sound calm but I have been mock playing with my clay Wiimote mockup for months in excitement.
Here’s the official Press Release:
DID YOU KNOW? WII HITS THE ROAD ON THE NINTENDO FUSION TOUR
Sept. 19, 2006
Groupies following the Nintendo Fusion Tour have a new superstar to watch for. Nintendo’s remarkable Wii™ console is joining the tour to give video game and music fans a chance to play it before it launches in the United States on Nov. 19 at an MSRP of $249.99.
The Nintendo Fusion Tour blends the best of hot new music and the coolest new video games. Starting Sept. 27 at each of the tour’s 35+ stops around the country, multiple Wii consoles will be hooked up and ready to play, along with a variety of hot Nintendo DS™ games like Elite Beat Agents™. Concert attendees can pick up the unique Wii Remote controller and start playing, regardless of their video game experience.
Some of the Wii titles scheduled to make the rounds on the tour include Metroid® Prime 3: Corruption, Wii Sports, Excite Truck™, WarioWare™: Smooth Moves and Activision’s Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam™.
Note that the lineup of Wii games is subject to change without notice.
Hawthorne Heights headlines the 2006 Nintendo Fusion Tour, with support from Relient K, Emery, Plain White T’s and The Sleeping.
Yay! Metroid, Excitetruck and Wario, Oh my! Yeah, I was kind of hoping for some Zelda and Red Steel, but this is still great. There could also be more titles than mentioned appearing too.
This makes me smile because I have had a fear in the back of my mind that I would show up at the concert, and see the Wii behind glass. What would I do then? Well, I could spend a few hours playing the Elite Beat Agents demo…
I’ll make sure to max out my SD card with pics and videos, and have them up the next day.
