Nintendo's taking Mario on tour starting the end of this month. You'll be able to play Super Mario Galaxy 2 and compete for a stack of prizes at various shopping centres around the country.
The Nintendo Connection Tour kicks off in Queensland on June 26, five days before the official July 1 launch of Super Mario Galaxy 2, before visiting Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia and South Australia. Oh, and New Zealand.
Sorry Tasmania and our two forgotten territories.
In addition to checking out Mario Galaxy 2, you can compete in the New Super Mario Bros. Wii Coin Challenge. The various state winners will even be flown to Sydney for the "national final".
Nintendo has been doing these retail tours for a while now and, as per usual, they'll be giving away games and other prizes in each state. There's also a competition to find the best Mario voice impersonator.
The dates are:
26/27 June Westfield Chermside QLD 28/29 June Pacific Fair QLD 3/4 July Sylvia Park NZ 3/4 July Westfield Fountain Gate VIC 5/6 July Westfield Southland VIC 9/10 July Westfield Carousel WA 15/16 July Westfield Chatswood NSW 17/18 July Westfield Hurtsville NSW 17/18 July Westfield Marion SA
