Mario takes to the soccer pitch in Mario Strikers Charged Football, bringing his own unique 'fighting football' style to Wii. In this follow-up to Mario Smash Football, you use the skills provided by the Wii Remote and Nunchuk Controller to win the ball, score unstoppable goals and take control of the goalkeeper to perform spectacular saves.
In Animal Crossing: Let’s Go To The City you can while away the day chatting with friends, be a workaholic or figure out a pace of life to suit somewhere in-between. Try your hand at fishing, plant trees and flowers, discover artifacts from ancient worlds, gaze at the stars, decorate your home, see a hit show or make a name for yourself as an auction-house entrepreneur. It’s all up to you!
