The football superstar will be appearing at GAME in Oxford St, London from 9am - 11am to greet fans and challenge a few lucky attendees* to play the Wii game against him. In addition he will be signing copies of the game, and giving away prizes to the crowds. There will only be 150 tickets available for this exclusive event, all you need to do is register your name at GAME in Oxford St, London from now until 24th May 07**.
Mario Strikers Charged, published by Nintendo, sees Mario joined by other famous Nintendo characters who take on the role of captain. Players then select a host of popular team-mates to make up the rest of the team.
Players form an original team by combining one of 12 captains with three of eight sidekicks before competing in one of the game's many modes. Anything goes in Mario Strikers Charged as players are allowed to utilize a variety of special abilities to clinch important goals.
Nick Pilcher, Regional Manager at GAME said "To be able to launch this game with Ian Wright here in our Oxford Street store is a great way for GAME to provide something extra to our customers."
So, make sure you're on the ball and get down to GAME in Oxford St for the fun football experience that is Mario Strikers Charged!
