Host Your Own Olympic Games with Mario & Sonic On Wii U
Nintendo Encourages Families to Get Active and Celebrate the Launch of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games for a Chance to Win Amazing Prizes

REDMOND, Wash., June 24, 2016 – Calling all active families! While Mario, Sonic and all their friends compete in Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games (launching today for the Wii U console), you and your family members can join in on all the fun … and enter for a chance to win a great prize package in the process. Starting today, Nintendo kicks off a contest on Instagram asking fans to take photos of their friends and families playing the game together or re-creating some of the game’s most memorable events, including Football (Soccer), Rugby Sevens and Beach Volleyball. Now’s your chance to get your family and friends together to host your very own Olympic Games at home! This could entail taking a photo of the family as they have a friendly competition while playing Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games in the living room at home (victory poses while wearing makeshift medals are optional!) or organizing an impromptu soccer match in the backyard with all your friends. The more creative and active the photos, the better. The most important thing, however, is to just have fun playing together!

With so many multiplayer modes and events in the game*, finding inspiration for the Instagram photo contest should be easy. The contest runs today until July 22. To participate, simply snap a photo of your family and/or friends competing in your own home Mario & Sonic-themed competition and post to Instagram using the hashtags #MarioSonicRio2016 and #NintendoContest. Every week starting on July 1, Nintendo will select one winning photo, with the winning entrant receiving a Wii U system, two New Nintendo 3DS XL systems, one each of the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games game and both the Mario and Sonic amiibo figures. That’s quite a prize package!

“Mario & Sonic aren’t the only ones breaking a sweat this summer with Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “This contest encourages families to get out and be just as active as the Mario & Sonic characters in the game.”

Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games for the Wii U console is full of engaging multiplayer modes that get your family and friends playing together using the largest cast of characters in series history. In Tournament mode, up to two players participate in Preliminary Heat, Semifinal and Final matches in a wide variety of different events. Winning a tournament will earn you “Mii Wear” outfits for your Mii character, coins, rings and medals. If your family and friends are ready for a challenge, the Heroes Showdown mode is ready and waiting to be conquered. In this mode, you can form a team to compete head-to-head with another player in random events. One team is assigned 10 random characters from Team Mario, while the other receives Team Sonic superstars. If you lose an event, characters are eliminated from your team until only one team, or one team captain, is left standing. With many different multiplayer options to choose from, friends and family will have a blast honing their skills in a wide variety of events in order to earn a spot on the winner’s podium.

And speaking of events, Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games is overflowing with diverse events for up to four players that will keep all members of the family entertained. For the first time in the franchise (and the first time in real life!), Rugby Sevens makes its Olympic Games debut. By fielding a seven-character team, you’re tasked with scoring goals while also navigating a chaotic field of fellow players. Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games features 14 Olympic Games events and three Duel events, which infuse some Mario & Sonic elements like Chaos Emeralds and Fire Flowers into the proceedings. In addition to Rugby Sevens, other main events include Football (Soccer), Beach Volleyball, BMX and Rhythmic Gymnastics (Clubs), which is also making its series debut.

Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games for Wii U is now available, and can be purchased in stores, in Nintendo eShop or at Nintendo.com at a suggested retail price of $59.99. The Nintendo 3DS version of the game, which contains exclusive events and game modes, is also available at a suggested retail price of $39.99.

[PR] Treehouse: Live at E3 Highlights Upcoming Wii U and Nintendo 3DS Releases
June 16, 2016, 03:39:32 AM by Link-NM

Quote from: Press Release
Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 Highlights Upcoming Wii U and Nintendo 3DS Releases

Nintendo showed off a variety of games for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS systems during its Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 broadcast today, including a new game in the Mario Party series, an original action-adventure RPG IP for Nintendo 3DS, a sequel to Nintendo eShop hit BOXBOY! and the surprise launch of Rhythm Heaven Megamix.

Here’s a quick recap of just a few of today’s highlights. For even more details on upcoming games, visit http://e3.nintendo.com/videos to watch individual Treehouse: Live segments and more.

Pokémon GO Plus: The Pokémon GO Plus accessory can connect via Bluetooth Low Energy technology with any smartphone that has the Pokémon GO application installed, and provides an easy and convenient way to catch Pokémon and collect items (accessory must be in proximity of smartphone). Once the accessory is synced with a smartphone, Pokémon GO Plus notifies the player about events in the game, such as the appearance of a Pokémon nearby, using an LED display and vibration. Players can catch Pokémon or collect items by pressing the button on the Pokémon GO Plus without looking at their smartphone. Pokémon GO Plus will launch in late July in North America, and is currently available for pre-order at select retailers at a suggested price of $34.99.

Ever Oasis : This action-adventure RPG for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems contains puzzle-filled dungeons, real-time battles, exploration and treasure hunting. Players use the oasis as their base, which they can expand as they play, and gain affinity with characters called Seedlings, who are themed after plant seeds, as well as a variety of other unique characters who live in the desert. Players can freely form strategic parties with any of their allied characters, using allies’ weapons and skills to battle enemies and solve dungeon puzzles. Ever Oasis is scheduled to launch in 2017.

Mario Party Star Rush : This new Mario Party game for Nintendo 3DS takes the fan-favorite series in new directions to make it more fast-paced and portable friendly. The main mode, “Toad Scramble,” uses a new open style of map that allows up to four players to move around freely instead of traditional linear space movements. Also, because the four players roll dice at the same time, players no longer have to wait for others to finish their turns. Players pick different-colored Toad characters to navigate the game map, and familiar characters from the Super Mario series are scattered all over the map. As players encounter these characters, they will help the player throughout the game.

Mario Party Star Rush launches on Nov. 4, alongside new amiibo figures in the Super Mario series (sold separately). The lineup includes Daisy, Waluigi and Boo, who make their amiibo figure debut, and the Boo figure even glows in the dark!  New Wario, Rosalina, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong figures will also launch. Each of these figures will be compatible with Mario Party Star Rush.

Paper Mario: Color Splash : In this new Paper Mario game, the story begins as Mario and friends arrive on Prism Island and need to solve the mystery surrounding Toad characters that have lost their color. Mario and his new partner Huey join forces to learn more about what is happening on Prism Island, and also to collect missing Paint Stars.

In a first for the series, The Koopalings make their Paper Mario debut in the game, and players can use the Wii U GamePad controller to “cut” sections of the landscape to help Mario solve puzzles. The game launches Oct. 7.

Rhythm Heaven Megamix : The game offers more than 100 rhythm games, 30 of which are new to the series. An additional 70 have been selected from previous games in the series, including the original Game Boy Advance title, which was never released in North America. The game also features a continuous story for the first time in the history of the series. Players view the action on the top screen, and on the bottom screen they will receive feedback on how well they are matching the beat of the music as they play. The game also offers StreetPass features and a multiplayer mode for up to four players. This Nintendo eShop exclusive game launches … right now! Go find it, as well as two new Nintendo 3DS themes and a free demo in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS, or purchase the game at http://e3.nintendo.com/games/rhythm-heaven-megamix-3ds.

BOXBOXBOY! : This sequel to the acclaimed BOXBOY! game for Nintendo 3DS features the ability to create two sets of boxes, which means players will be challenged by new kinds of puzzles. The game picks up right where the original left off, but can be enjoyed even by people who missed the first one. The Nintendo eShop exclusive game launches June 30. To celebrate the upcoming launch, the original game is available at a discounted price in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS. Between now and June 21 at 8:59 a.m. PT, the original game will be available for $2.99, a 40 percent savings off the regular price, with My Nintendo members getting an additional 10 percent off the discounted price. More details on this special sale price are available at e3.nintendo.com. June 30 can’t come soon enough? The game is available for pre-purchase now.

YO-KAI WATCH 2: Bony Spirits and YO-KAI WATCH 2: Fleshy Souls : The next big entries in the YO-KAI WATCH series for Nintendo 3DS arrive on Sept. 30. Players will embark on a new adventure across Springdale and through time, with more than 350 new and returning Yo-kai to discover and befriend—each with a unique look, personality and Soultimate Move. Teaming up with the heroic cat Hovernyan, players will travel back in time to 60 years ago and witness the origin of the Yo-kai Watch. Up to four players with their own systems and games can team up in an action-packed co-op mode to earn rewards that can be used in the single-player adventure.

Monster Hunter Generations: Starting June 30, a special demo will be available for all prospective hunters to download on Nintendo eShop. This special demo features single-player gameplay in addition to local and online co-op. Select ambassadors will receive two early access codes for the special demo before it’s made available to everyone. Additionally, those with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate save data on their systems will receive a bonus item pack that includes an exclusive Felyne armor set, potions, in-game money and more to help dive right into the hunt.

DRAGON QUEST VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past : This Nintendo 3DS remake of the classic turn-based game involves a young boy who sets off with his friends on a journey to restore the world to its former glory and save the present by mending lands that were sealed in the past. In addition to updated graphics and an entirely new localization, the game does away with random enemy encounters to bring the player deeper into the game world. Players can also collect and share Traveler’s Tablets via the StreetPass feature, granting access to special dungeons offering unique rewards. The game launches Sept. 16.
