Check Out the Latest Games from Nintendo!
Once again, the folks at Nintendo have been very good to me and my family. A few weeks ago, I was invited to a cool cocktail party in conjunction with the launch of Nintendo's holiday games. While many of them haven't been released yet (you're going to love the band game they've created for Wii), I was invited to a penthouse suite at a swanky hotel in midtown where I bumped into a few of my favorite mom bloggers, including Kim from Mom in the City, Jessica at New York City Moms blog, and Mary Warren at New York Metroparents and Robin with NYC Moms too.
As we sipped wine and sampled some appetizers, we were then called into a room where we were "interrogated" by a detective looking into the murder of Phil T. Rich. I felt like I was transported into a real life version of Clue and had a great time trying to solve the mystery. A few weeks later, we received the Nintendo game in the mail and my son and I have been having a great time tracking down the clues.
For some specifics on the game, here's the lowdown straight from Nintendo:
Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir showcases a multitude of beautiful, intricately detailed painted scenes in which players seek out cleverly hidden items to progress through an interactive detective story. There are 12 potential heirs to examine, 30 detailed scenes to peruse and more than 1,000 hidden objects to find.
With the game's intuitive touch-screen control, fans can quickly delve into the world of Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir and begin their investigation. Players use special analytical tools and interact with on-screen objects simply by using the Nintendo DS stylus.
Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir is the only Mystery Case Files game to include multiplayer options. In multiplayer modes, players can search for clues together or compete head-to-head. Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir also includes game-sharing with DS Download Play so friends and family can share the experience.
Characters: Phil T. Rich and a rich cast of possible heirs.
Mini-games: Finding hidden objects is not the only activity in Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir. Between investigations, players are presented with entertaining brain teasers that must be solved in order to progress.
