FIVE SPORTS, ONE PACKAGE: Wii Sports Club LAUNCHES IN STORES ON JULY 25

Online Multiplayer, Enhanced GamePad Controls and High-Def Graphics Among New Features in Wii U Game

VANCOUVER, B.C., July 24, 2014 – It’s a full count. One more out will win you the game. Standing on the pitcher’s mound, you study the batter and aim for the outside corner. You take a deep breath and unleash the baseball toward home plate. The ball curves just as you planned. Suddenly and unexpectedly, the bat cracks and the ball soars into the air. You thrust your arms in the air, poised to catch the fly ball. Catch it and the game is over. You win. The ball falls closer and closer to your outstretched hands …

While this sounds like an intense game of real-life baseball, it is actually the experience anyone can have using the GamePad controller in Wii Sports Club, which arrives in stores on July 25. The Wii U game includes updated and reimagined versions of Tennis, Bowling, Golf, Baseball and Boxing from the original Wii Sports game for Wii, with each sport using Wii MotionPlus technology and new GamePad features for enhanced control.

The implementation of the Wii U GamePad controller brings some surprising and fun features to Wii Sports Club. In Baseball, for example, the pitcher aims a fastball, curveball, screwball or splitter by simply moving the GamePad around in real space and pressing a button to throw. If the ball gets hit in the air, players use the GamePad to follow and catch the fly ball – just like they would with a baseball glove. In Golf, players place the GamePad on the floor to see the ball they are about to hit on the screen of the GamePad. It will appear on the same surface shown in the game – on the fairway, in a sand trap or in the rough. After players swing their Wii Remote Plus controllers like a real golf club, the ball will “fly” from the GamePad screen to the main TV screen and toward the virtual pin. The added GamePad features elicit the same “You have to try this!” reactions generated after playing the original Wii Sports game.

“With so many features packed into Wii Sports Club, players of all ages will feel like they are playing the game for the first time,” said Ron Bertram, Nintendo of Canada’s vice-president and general manager. “Wii Sports Club is the definitive version of Wii Sports and the perfect showcase for the unique game-play experiences enabled by the Wii U GamePad controller.”

In a new online multiplayer mode, gamers from the same region who own the game and have a broadband Internet connection can play Wii Sports Club together. Players also can join a club to represent their regions and build online communities with fellow club members by sending tips, pep talks and other messages via Miiverse.

The retail version of Wii Sports Club launches in stores on July 25 at a suggested retail price of $44.99. The digital versions of all five sports are now available and can be purchased in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U. A 48-hour free trial of all five sports is also available in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U until Dec. 31.

Press Release: The Kalos Region and More Never-Before-Seen Pokemon from Pokemon X and Pokemon Y Introduced

THE KALOS REGION AND MORE NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN POKÉMON FROM POKÉMON X AND POKÉMON Y INTRODUCED

Four Brand-New Pokémon, the New Region, and Official Package Art Revealed for the First Time

BELLEVUE, Wash.—May 14, 2013—When Pokémon fans begin their thrilling 3D adventure in Pokémon X or Pokémon Y this October, they will be transported into an entirely new region called Kalos. A mysterious place that is shaped like a star, Kalos is a region where players will encounter beautiful forests, thriving cities, and many never-before-seen Pokémon. The central city of this breathtaking region is Lumiose City, a metropolis featuring a tower that is set to become an iconic structure in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.

While exploring the Kalos region, Trainers will encounter many new Pokémon that they can battle, catch, and add to their Pokédex. A Trainer is only as good as the Pokémon he or she befriends. Seven new Pokémon debuting in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y were introduced earlier this year—and today, four additional Pokémon are being revealed for the first time. These Pokémon add to the more than 640 Pokémon that have been encountered in previous games.

• The cowardly Pokémon Helioptile, a Normal- and Electric-type Pokémon, can generate enough electricity through sunbathing to power machinery. But wise Trainers won’t be deterred by Helioptile’s lack of bravery. It knows Parabolic Charge, a brand-new move where Helioptile attacks everything around it. Helioptile’s HP is restored by half the damage taken by those hit.

Fletchling, a Normal- and Flying-type Pokémon, sings with a beautiful chirp that is sure to delight any Trainer. Although it is known to be very friendly, Fletchling will suddenly unleash relentless attacks once it’s in battle. For example, when it uses its Fire-type move Flame Charge in battle, in addition to doing damage, Fletchling’s Speed increases every time.

• With a leaf always in its mouth and an intimidating glare that is rarely effective, Fighting-type Pokémon Pancham shows its playful side when it lets out a little smile when its head is pat. Pancham can learn a brand-new move, Parting Shot, which not only lowers an opponent’s Attack and Special Attack, but also allows Pancham to switch out for another Pokémon in a Trainer’s party during battle.

• Pokémon X and Pokémon Y introduce a new method of transportation—riding the brand-new Pokémon, Gogoat. This large Grass-type Pokémon is a reliable way to travel certain parts of Lumiose City. In battle, it can use Horn Leech to recover HP equal to half the damage dealt by this move.

These brand-new Pokémon and others caught in the Kalos region will be added to a player’s Pokédex that, for the first time, will be divided into three unique areas within the region. There is much to explore in the Kalos region, and many Pokémon to encounter when Pokémon X and Pokémon Y debut worldwide this October. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months!

For more information about Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, including an official map of the Kalos region and Pokémon art, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y package shots, and a special video featuring Helioptile, Fletchling, Pancham, and Gogoat, please visit Pokemon.com.

RIDE ALONG WITH CHASE MCCAIN ON HIS FIRST ASSIGNMENT IN LEGO® CITY UNDERCOVER: THE CHASE BEGINS

Explore LEGO City and Bring Gangs to Justice in the Nintendo 3DS Prequel to LEGO City Undercover on Wii U

REDMOND, Wash., April 22, 2013 – Chase McCain is known by the thankful citizens of LEGO City as a legendary police officer. But where did his story begin? Every legend has to start somewhere. LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins, available now exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS™ system, is a prequel to the well-received LEGO City Undercover game for Wii U™. The story is set two years before the events of the Wii U game and follows Chase McCain as a rookie cop trying to prove himself in LEGO City.

“LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins builds on the same action-filled game play and humor of LEGO City Undercover for Wii U,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Every member of the family can experience Chase’s exciting journey from rookie to legend, on the go with their Nintendo 3DS systems.”

Like any first day on the job, LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins starts off with Chase performing simple tasks such as retrieving doughnuts and looking for lost pets. But as the story progresses, Chase stumbles into something much more menacing: Different gangs start to cause trouble all over LEGO City, and it’s up to Chase McCain to put an end to their crime wave.

The story of LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins for Nintendo 3DS is based on the popular LEGO City play sets, and features various undercover disguises that Chase can collect and wear. These disguises grant him special abilities, as well as access to new areas in the game’s budding LEGO City. While investigating specific crimes in multiple missions, Chase will drive dozens of vehicles, engage in slick hand-to-hand combat with criminals and gather a wide variety of collectibles that can unlock bonus content.

Using the StreetPass™ feature of Nintendo 3DS, players can even share collectible items such as characters, vehicles and postcards with other Nintendo 3DS users who also own a copy of the game.

You Have the Right to Remain Entertained! Use the Wii U GamePad Controller to Scan for Clues, Track Criminals and Navigate a Massive Open World in LEGO® City Undercover

VANCOUVER, BC, March 18, 2013 – The LEGO video games have a history of entertaining people of all ages with their fun game play, unique style and universal humour. LEGO City Undercover stays true to this winning formula, but is the first and only LEGO game to also take full advantage of the revolutionary second-screen game play of the Wii U GamePad controller. Launching today exclusively for Wii U™, LEGO City Undercover is a one-of-a-kind experience that will appeal to the entire family.

“LEGO video games are known for their broad appeal, and this Wii U-exclusive game adds new dimensions to the franchise,” said Ron Bertram, Nintendo of Canada’s vice-president and general manager. “Kids and adults will enjoy playing the game, and mom and dad might even keep playing after the kids go to sleep.”

In LEGO City Undercover, players assume the identity of undercover detective Chase McCain as he explores the open world of LEGO City in pursuit of criminal mastermind Rex Fury. The Wii U GamePad controller is represented in-game as a state-of-the-art gadget used by Chase and the other members of the LEGO City Police Department. With it, players can communicate with police dispatcher Ellie Phillips, access the world map or place waypoints using the touch screen. Players can also use the GamePad to scan the environment to locate hidden clues or even listen in on criminals.

As Chase makes his way through the city in his quest to bring down Rex Fury, he will collect multiple undercover disguises. These disguises possess unique abilities that will help Chase access new locations and solve puzzles.

Featuring the same lighthearted sense of humour that LEGO video games are known for, LEGO City Undercover is a hilarious take on hard-boiled detective stories, and its humour can be appreciated on multiple levels by both kids and their parents.

LEGO City Undercover is the first LEGO video game to be based on the real-life LEGO City play sets, one of the best-selling, most popular LEGO themes around the globe. Not only will players encounter familiar play sets while playing, but the game also features a large cast of fully voiced characters with their own distinct personalities. Players can also explore original locations and jump into more than 100 vehicles, including sports cars, motorcycles and even a selection of aircraft.

In addition to the Wii U game, a LEGO City building set designed to complement the game is now available in stores. The High Speed Chase set includes three minifigures: Chase McCain, a burglar and a police officer with handcuffs, plus an assortment of vehicles and accessories to build. As an added bonus, each set contains a unique code that players can enter to unlock these same vehicles and some special missions in the LEGO City Undercover game.

THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME AWAITS IN FIRE EMBLEM AWAKENING

First True 3D Entry in Revered Series Now Available for Nintendo 3DS

Feb. 4, 2013

REDMOND, Wash., Feb. 4, 2013 – You are standing at the edge of a massive battlefield. Before you stands a sea of enemies: wyvern riders, dark mages, fearsome knights. You and your companions must use your wits to defeat the approaching onslaught. One wrong move could end in defeat. But the right decisions could result in a glorious victory. Your archer is in position. Your healer is standing close. You are defending the Kingdom of Ylisse from a vicious enemy alongside the bravest warriors in the land. You are ready. This is Fire Emblem Awakening.

Today, for the first time, the epic fantasy turn-based strategy series launches for Nintendo 3DS in retail stores and in the Nintendo eShop. Fire Emblem Awakening follows the story of Lord Chrom as he bands together with a growing army of brave companions to save the world from a rising evil.

“The Fire Emblem series has been enchanting fans for years on many different Nintendo systems,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “From Game Boy Advance to Wii, millions of knights- and mages-in-the-making have enjoyed adventures through the mysterious and fantastical worlds of these games. This new Nintendo 3DS adventure will let people experience the franchise in a whole new way with detailed graphics, an engrossing storyline and deep tactical combat.”

Fire Emblem Awakening stars a massive cast of playable characters with unique personalities and individual skills. As the dramatic and emotional storyline unfolds, the characters in the game take part in numerous battles where strategic decisions determine success or failure. Like previous games in the Fire Emblem series, if a beloved character falls in battle, he or she is gone forever. This unique feature continues to add tension and urgency to the engrossing game play the Fire Emblem series is known for. For a more casual game-play experience, players can choose “casual mode,” which does not have the permanent death system.

New to the series are a host of new features that make Fire Emblem Awakening the deepest and most robust entry in the series. In the game, when characters pair up, they can perform devastating dual strikes or protect each other from oncoming enemies. As the game progresses, these partnered characters build a relationship and can eventually get married and have children. Players can use the StreetPass functionality of the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system to create “StreetPass teams” composed of the characters from the game. After tagging someone with StreetPass, players can engage with the opposing team and battle for control of the opposing team’s leader, recruit the team leader with gold or purchase any items he or she is carrying.

Outside of the main campaign, owners of Fire Emblem Awakening can purchase and download additional weekly maps. The maps will offer valuable rewards for completing them, including new playable characters, new class types and skills. The first of these downloadable maps features legendary Fire Emblem character Marth. This map is available now, and is free until March 5. Additional maps will be released each week and can be purchased from the in-game shop. In addition to content that can be purchased from within the game, Nintendo will also distribute new content via SpotPass for free. Starting at launch and continuing for the months following, SpotPass content will be distributed and will feature new maps with new storylines, characters and items.

In addition to the stand-alone game, a special limited-edition Fire Emblem Awakening Nintendo 3DS bundle is also now available in stores. The bundle includes the game pre-installed on a blue Nintendo 3DS system emblazoned with Fire Emblem artwork. It also includes a 4GB SD memory card. The bundle is available for a suggested retail price of $199.99.

Remember that Nintendo 3DS features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/3ds.
