Nintendo and The Pokémon Company International are giving Pokémon fans the opportunity to receive the elusive Pokémon Zoroark!
Zoroark cannot be caught under normal circumstances and is available for a limited time only. From 16 September - 16 October, Pokémon fans can get Zoroark, at any of the specially selected stores that will be taking part in this distribution event.
This Level 50 Zoroark is special in a number of ways--it knows the exclusive move Snarl, and it comes in a Cherish Ball, showing the unique effort you put into receiving the Pokémon.
Be sure to bring your system from the Nintendo DS family or Nintendo 3DS system and your copy of the Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version game when you visit any of the stores that are involved in the Zoroark distribution.
Don't miss this opportunity to get Zoroark for a limited time, in-store only.*
*Content distribution may also be made available over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection

Put your detective skills to the test with Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident available on Wii 22 September. Play solo or team up with friends to play this hidden object adventure game.
When a man named Winston Malgrave contacts the Mystery Case Files detective agency, he claims to have made the scientific "discovery of the century" and invites you to his island.
As Master Detective on the case, you must use your powers of observation to find items critical to solving the case and learn more about Malgrave's discovery--a mysterious and intriguing purple dust.
In order to solve the mysteries, you must explore the colourful and immersive landscapes of Malgrave Island. Along the way you will discover hidden object puzzles, where cleverly concealed items are scattered throughout a myriad of all-new and colourful scenes.
When you think you've found the item you are looking for, simply use the Wii Remote pointer to click on your discovery to tick it off the search list. But all is not as it seems. Some of the terms on the search list are intentionally vague so you'll need to think laterally to find all the items.
If you get stuck or simply want to share the fun, why not call on your friends to help you solve the intriguing, brain-teasing mysteries? Up to three other players can drop-in and work together to find those sneakily hidden items.
So keep your eyes peeled and your wits about you as you uncover the clues and solve the mysteries in Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident.
For more information, visit the official Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident website.

Nintendo announces that the nationwide Nintendo Connection Tour is back for 2011!
Commencing at Westfield Southland in Victoria on the 24th of September before coming to a shopping centre near you, the Nintendo Connection Tour will run until the 15th of October, offering Nintendo fans and new players alike the opportunity to sample some exciting new releases, as well as to play some family favourites!
There is something for everyone at the Nintendo Connection Tour! For the first time, the highly anticipated The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be playable on Wii as well as exciting new titles on Nintendo 3DS: Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land and Kid Icarus Uprising, to name just a few. The activity will all be housed in a set inspired by The Legend of Zelda series, the adventure that has spanned a quarter of a century.
Don't forget, if you have a Nintendo 3DS, to bring it along to participate in StreetPass - a fun function of Nintendo 3DS whereby you can automatically exchange game data between Nintendo 3DS consoles. Swap Mii characters, exchange puzzle pieces, meet other puppies in nintendogs + cats, take part in Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition Figurine Battles and more!
Available on the set will also be the Pokédex 3D application on Nintendo 3DS. Pokédex 3D is available for free on Nintendo 3DS via the Nintendo eShop, allowing players to view Pokémon in 3D and even use Pokémon AR (Augmented Reality) Markers to watch them come to life and take photos of them! Pokémon AR Markers will be available at the tour for all to try. Those who bring along their Nintendo 3DS can also take home some special photos- they will need to download the free Pokédex 3D from the Nintendo eShop to participate in this activity.
A special competition will also be available at each location, where one winner will receive all games shown on tour that are yet to be released (upon the launch of those games). To be eligible for the competition, and to receive a special Nintendo Connection Tour lanyard, you need to be one of the first 125 people to enter the tour set on each given activity day, so be sure to get there early!
There will be heaps of other giveaways each day and competitions for people of all ages and all skill levels, so don't miss out! Visit the Nintendo Connection Tour 2011 Official Website for dates and further information.
