Nintendo Reveals its NDS/Wii Holiday 2009 Lineup

by Rainier on Sept. 15, 2009 @ 12:15 p.m. PDT

Nintendo Co., Ltd., an interactive entertainment company based out of Kyoto, Japan, manufactures and markets hardware and software for its Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi systems. Since 1983, when it launched the Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo has sold more than 3.1 billion video games and more than 526 million hardware units globally, including the current-generation Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi, as well as the Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, Super NES, Nintendo 64 and Nintendo GameCube systems. It has also created industry icons that have become well-known, household names such as Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Zelda and Pokémon. A wholly owned subsidiary, Nintendo of America Inc., based in Redmond, Wash., serves as headquarters for Nintendo’s operations in the Western Hemisphere.

Whether the people on your list have been playing since the 1980s or only since last week, Nintendo has you covered. The Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi systems have a huge selection of games for everyone on your list, including many that you won’t find anywhere else.

“This extensive lineup will keep players busy throughout the fall and into 2010,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Shoppers know that Nintendo offers fun for everyone in the household.”

Upcoming Nintendo-published games for the Wii console include Wii Fit Plus (Oct. 4) and New Super Mario Bros. Wii (holiday 2009). These games will join the current hot seller, Wii Sports Resort, which comes with the new precision-control Wii MotionPlus accessory. Fans of portable games will enjoy Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky (Oct. 12), Style Savvy (Nov. 2) and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks (Dec. 7) in addition to the just-released Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story, all playable on both Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi systems.

The changing autumn leaves will be in good company with some new colors for the Nintendo DSi system and the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers. New White and Pink Nintendo DSi systems made their debut on Sept. 13, while a Black Wii Remote controller and Wii MotionPlus accessory package will be available this holiday season. A Black version of the Nunchuk controller will be sold separately as well.

Third-party publishers are supporting Nintendo platforms with impressive quality and wide-ranging titles. Wii exclusives like Dead Space Extraction from Electronic Arts and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers from Square Enix will provide thrills that can’t be found elsewhere. At the same time, Nintendo DS owners are anxiously awaiting another powerhouse release: Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days from Square Enix. And Activision’s Band Hero, available on both Wii and Nintendo DS, features compelling interactivity between the two hardware systems through wireless connectivity.

Below is a partial list of upcoming games for Wii, the WiiWare service, Nintendo DS and the Nintendo DSiWare service. Note that game titles and launch dates are subject to change.
