It is confirmed that Zelda: Twilight Princess will be launching alongside the Wii console on December 7th in New Zealand! They’ve also confirmed the price for the game which will be $109.95.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Softprint Interactive were recently confirmed as the New Zealand distributor for Nintendo. They will be spending half a million dollars on marketing activity for the Wii across TV, print and online media before Christmas 06.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Softprint Interactive will be showcasing the Wii at both Armegeddon in Auckland on Labour Weekend, and at Big Boys Toys in Auckland in November.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ There will be an official Wii carry bag available from day one — once pricing is confirmed we’ll have it up for pre-order.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ The new Mario game will not be available in NZ until early 2007
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Accessory pricing is being confirmed in the next week or so. It’s expected there will be a Controller + “WiiPlay” bundle which we expect to be around $90-100. WiiPlay is a collection of minigames.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Unlike other Nintendo console launches in New Zealand, the Wii has solid Third Party support from all the major players in the industry.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ According to GamePlanet NZ, Wii is already a winner and they now have more pre-orders for it than the PlayStation 3!
