Posted on June 21, 2007, Shawn Sines Wherever We Go, There Wii Are
It’s the Summer Solstice, the first official day of summer and wherever you go, the Wii will be there. Since it’s inception, the Wii has created a social phenomenon. Casual Gamers have formed Wii bowling leagues and even senior citizens are having fun and getting exercise with the system. This summer Nintendo’s tiny powerhouse will be popping up in theme parks, cruise ships and with street teams.
- Six Flags Theme Parks: Wii is the Official Gaming Console of Six Flags parks. Six Flags offers complimentary game playing at Wii gaming stations throughout select Six Flags-branded theme parks.
- Norwegian Cruise Line Ships: Wii systems are currently on all Norwegian Cruise Line ships. The systems are equipped with Wii Sports(TM), Wii Play(TM), WarioWare(TM): Smooth Moves and Excite Truck(TM).
- Nintendo Street Team: The Nintendo Street Team includes a trailer and two SUVs equipped with all the hottest and upcoming Wii and Nintendo DS(TM) games. The Street Team will be touring the country attending fairs and festivals, local events and select NASCAR races all summer long to give people the chance to sample games for both casual players and the hard-core gamer. For a complete calendar of where to find the Nintendo Street Team, visit http://www.nintendo.com.
- The Dick’s Sporting Goods Kick-It 3v3 Soccer Tour presented by Sports Illustrated For Kids: Nintendo will join this 53-city soccer tournament, which runs now through August. Wii systems will be on display showing off sports-themed games like Wii Sports and Mario Strikers(TM) Charged.
Of course if you want to increase your chances of encountering the Wii this summer, you can always pack it in your travel bag to go.
