Australians! Nintendo of Australia are offering you the chance to give a couple of very anticipated Nintendo games a spin before they are released. It's not often that Aussies get the chance to do stuff like this, so if you live in the Sydney or Melbourne areas, why not make an appearance?
Nintendo will have the two games available to play at the following locations and dates.
The Gamesmen, Penrith
Friday 23rd Oct, to Sunday 25th Oct (11am - 2pm)
The Nintendo Connection at Level 6, Myer Sydney
Wednesday 28th Oct, to Sunday 1st Nov (11am to 2pm)
The Nintendo Experience at EB Games, Level 2, 67 Swanston Street, Melbourne
Wednesday 4th Nov to Thursday 12th Nov, All day
Of course, if you attend let us know - we'd love to see your photos and hear your impressions. Oh, and if you see Olivia Newton-John there, tell her you liked Grease 2 better than the first one and see how she reacts.
Where do you live Chibi?
I unfortunately won't be able to make it to any of the dates, I do live reasonably close to Sydney, but I'll be in Queensland for two weeks!
So do I I live in Western Australia so obviously I can't make it there!
I'm in NSW too, about halfway between Newcastle and Sydney!
It'll probably be crowded as hell at Swanston Street, so I think I can wait a another month to play the two games.
Brits get this soon as well, mid november period
Damnit I'm in NSW but too far away from sydney.
Not even gonna try. I went to the launch of the Nintendo Connection at Myer. Absolutely the worst place I've ever been too.
@Aviator: Then I'm glad I didn't go, I considered it, lol. Next time they hold a Connection Tour at Chatswood or Parramatta I'm totally there
I'm not from Australia. I'm from the UK.
@chunky_droid Yea. I missed the '09 one cause I was up in Yamba for a holiday. But I'm so there for the '10 tour.
I missed the '09 one too, the last one I went to I entered the Pokemon tournament and got in the top 8 . Glad to say I wasn't the oldest one there, lol
I live in the US.
Guys the flags tell us where your from, no need to announce it, anyway I would have loved to have tried Spirit Tracks before its release, hope they add it as a demo to the Nintendo channel.
That is a lot of Australians commenting here.
Hopefully one day i'll be able to move to Australia and not for this, it's the best country in the world... bloody visas
I hope Zero Punctuation reviews these games.
@taffy Damn right!
@chunky_droid Ouch. I got into the top 64.
Brisbane for me. Even though its a zelda game, its on the DS so I'll pass. I will miss not getting a go of the new super mario bros though
Well done tracking down an Australian advertising promo shot
Ahhh Olivia. Grease is a really annoying movie for a guy who isn't into musicals. Who writes the captions for the photos? I've seen some real gems on this site. Keep up the good work!
Hey is there actually a release date for Spirit Tracks for us Aussies? I really want to play it!
Why can't I be down under?
@timp29 - the captions are usually from the brains of whoever writes the piece, so this one was all Brad's doing.
