SEEING THE YEAR OUT WITH A BANG!

As the nights draw in and Autumn makes it mark, get ready to warm up with a whole host of exciting new titles for all on the Nintendo DS and Wii. Whether a long time gaming fan or someone looking for a new form of entertainment, there will be something for everyone’s Christmas wish list.

Creating fun for all the family, November will see the arrival of Wii Music. Whether you are a music maestro or taking your first musical steps, this new title for Wii will have the whole family creating unique musical performances together with over 60 different instruments to choose from. The fun continues as country living at its best arrives on Wii in Animal Crossing: Let’s Go to the City. Live your life in your own idyllic town as you customise your surroundings and make friends with the colourful and unique animals around you. Also featuring new accessory, Wii Speak, connect to friends and invite them to your town to experience life together whilst chatting online over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

Wario fans should prepare for some classic Wario platform action as he hits Wii in his first dedicated title on the console, Wario Land: The Shake Dimension. Reeking havoc as he goes, experience an epic and lush 2D adventure as you seek out treasure the Wario way! And if you’re looking for an all-out, brand new action adventure, make sure Disaster: Day of Crisis is top of your list! Putting all your survival skills to the test, experience an ultimate day as you’d never expect in this intense and absorbing title.

Something for everyone doesn’t stop at the Wii, as the Nintendo DS also offers a wealth of new titles this autumn. From brand new puzzle adventure Professor Layton and the Curious Village, which will stretch those lateral thinking skills, to an all-new Pokémon Ranger quest with Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, no matter what your age and gaming taste, there is something for you. Music fans will receive a treat as a fully-fledged, professional KORG synthesiser launches for the innovative handheld console when KORG DS-10 launches in October.
