Gamers in Australia and New Zealand, we feel your pain: whilst North American gamers have had Mario's latest for a few weeks, and European fans get to play it in ten days time, you must wait a whole month from today to enjoy blasting off. Nintendo wants to ease that stinging feeling by bringing you the game to a shopping centre near you with the Nintendo Connection Tour.

Kicking off on June 26th, you can take part in the New Super Mario Bros. Wii Coin Challenge for the chance to compete in the national final for untold prizes. There'll also be other games and even a competition to find the best Mario impersonator. Check out the complete tour listing below and start practising your Mamma Mias now.
