No Comment 22 Views

During the baseball season, Nintendo will offer Seattle Mariners fans and visitors to Safeco Field new ways to enjoy America’s favorite pastime. To enliven the fan experience, Nintendo has joined forces with ESPN to deliver enhanced interactive features to the Nintendo Fan Network, including ESPN’s up-to-the-minute news and analysis, as well as closed-captioning of PA announcements. The entire experience is delivered to fans’ Nintendo DS systems through an exclusive Wi-Fi network. Since it debuted in 2007, the Nintendo Fan Network has provided stadium-goers the ability to access information, chat with other fans and even order concessions by using Nintendo DS systems.

Via the Nintendo Fan Network, ESPN will deliver fans Mariners-related news, general sports news and headlines, fantasy sports news and updates, baseball columns from ESPN’s leading columnists, and ESPN Zoom Game, a photo-matching game for sports.

In addition to new features from ESPN, the free Nintendo Fan Network service offers live video broadcast and interactive trivia and games, as well as real-time scores of other baseball games in progress. For added convenience, the Nintendo Fan Network also offers live weather and traffic information, and the unique ability to order food and beverages for delivery directly to the fan’s seat, all with a tap of the stylus on the Nintendo DS system.

In honor of the new Nintendo DSi system, the third iteration of the best-selling Nintendo DS, the Nintendo Fan Network will also offer for the first 150 requesters at each home game a free Nintendo DSi rental for in-game use during the first three months of the season. Launched in North America on April 5, Nintendo DSi lets users customize and personalize their hand-held gaming experiences like never before. With the goal of transforming the way people access, experience, create and share content, the Nintendo DSi comes with two built-in cameras and new audio recording and playback functions.
