Mario Gets Charged This Week

Nintendo are all set to release Mario Charged Football this week in Europe, backing the game with a large TV ad campaign.

"Ian Wright and Shaun Wright-Phillips line up against Mario and Co. as the stars of the Mario Strikers Charged Football campaign which goes live across terrestrial TV from 19th May featuring in major sports events such as the upcoming Champions League and FA Cup finals and more family oriented programs such as Coronation Street, Grease Is the Word and Big Brother."

Well erm, I haven't seen any ads just yet, but we'll be watching the Champions League Final on Wednesday and we'll look out for Mario between toilet breaks at half time!

"The TV ad sees Ian and Shaun at home battling another team of opponents online using the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, a feature that allows Wii owners to take on anyone across Europe."

Just in-case you forgot, the game is out on Friday, so get your boots and snag yourself a copy before the weekend, we'll see you online.
