Nintendo (NTDOY) is currently involved in promoting its games across the country and the lovers of Mario Kart Wii will have the chance to compete in the first-ever Nintendo National Tournament.
The ambassador of the tournament is the 18-year-old gymnast and Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson. The competition started on July 16, covering 24 cities. The games are open to players of all ages in different shopping malls, but children under 12 can only participate as part of a team.
The competition matches teams of 2 to 4 players and it includes five activities: Mario Kart Wii, New Super Mario Bros Wii, Basketball, Bowling and the Hula Hoop Challenge from Wii Fit Plus. The winners will be designated combining the scores from these activities and they will be qualified for the national championship event, the final stage on September 3-5, in Los Angeles, California.
Everybody is invited to get a chance and win great prizes like a flat-screen television, a new Wii console or even a cruise for the winner team.
Mario Kart Wii is a racing game developed by Nintendo, having a commercially successful launch, with over 22 million copies sold, an incredible performance for this time of economical recession. The Wii Wheel and Nintendo game consoles offer a very natural feeling in the gamer hands, but it comes with other two control styles, including the classic control style with Nunchuk controller. Mario Kart Wii offers also a large number of selectable characters, tracks and karts.
