LIVONIA, Mich. -- Once again returning to the metro Detroit area on Monday, this time parked outside the Hyatt Hotel along Seven Mile Rd. in Livonia, Mich., the Nintendo Holiday Tour spent its day-long stop showing off some of the video game company’s most anticipated releases in the coming months.

Directed first to the Wii console, Representative Janine provided a demonstration of the special body movement controls that highlighted The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, expected to be released in November.

Also demonstrated on the Wii was another franchise character for Nintendo: Kirby, who stars in the October 24-slated Kirby’s Return to Dream Land. It will be the second titular game for the little puff of pink this season, also appearing in the Nintendo DS game Kirby Mass Attack, which was released on September 19.

The Nintendo 3DS games were the final draw of the day, with Tetris: Axis receiving a draw of high interest thanks to the inclusion of special game options such as “Fever” and “Survival,” the latter of which involves the columns rising up every time a row fails to be eliminated. Throw in “Mario Kart 7” and “Professor Layton and the Last Specter,” and the 3DS consoles remain a top draw thanks to new color tones like Cosmo Black and Flame Red.

Those with Wii preferences, however, are sure to be comforted by holiday bargains when the Nintendo Selects series releases several classics at lower prices such as $19.99.

Continuing its tour eastward, the Nintendo Holiday bus can only anticipate ongoing turnout and buy-ups as the season inches closer and closer, and fans can take the time to find out what they consider to be the perfect purchases through participation.
