By  | 

As November approaches, many people are starting to get into the holiday spirit. It may be a little to early to be making a list and checking it twice, but there are some new releases in the video game market that may have the attention of the gamers on your list.

Nintendo and other gaming giants will be releasing (or have released) a multitude of games for their Wii console and Nintendo DS systems.

“Everyone wants fun, engaging experiences, and they want great value,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’ s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “ Nintendo games give you both. And no matter what your taste, you’ ll find exclusive experiences that just aren’ t available anywhere else.”

For the Wii…

Wii games that have been released include Metroid: Other M, Samurai Warriors 3m, Wii Party, and Kirby’ s Epic Yarn. PokéPark Wii: Pikachu’ s Adventure, FlingSmash and Donkey Kong Country Returns will be hitting the shelves in November.

Other games that will surely be a hit are the released New Carnival Games from 2K Play, NBA JAM from EA Sports, Just Dance 2 from Ubisoft, GoldenEye 007 from Activision, Sonic Colors from SEGA, and Disney Epic Mickey from Disney.

For the Nintendo DS…

Hit games for the 2010 holiday season include Professor Layton and the Unwound Future, Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Art Academy, Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!, Super Scribblenauts from Warner Bros., FINAL FANTASY THE 4 HEROES OF LIGHT from Square Enix, and Rock Band 3.

Nintendo games have the unbeatable combination of value and fun. Nintendo DS and Wii games are great fun for every member of the family

If you’re still looking to buy your own Wii, the timing couldn’t be better. Just make sure the Wii system you’re purchasing comes with start up games (they often come with Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort) plus a Wii Remote control, Nunchuk and the Wii MotionPlus accessory, which makes specially designed games even more precise.

And starting this year, Nintendo has partnered with Netflix to stream movies and TV shows directly to their televisions for the base Netflix cost of $8.99.
