Nintendo Hosting New Year Telethon

Events Japan

Nintendo is still in the giving mood judging by the announcement that they plan to hold a two day telethon which will be telecast on your 3DS handheld.

Commencing the 31 of December and continuing until  the 2nd of January, the news was advertised to 3DS owners via a note that was sent to the handhelds.

It read, “Mark your calendar for the first-ever Nintendo Video New Year’s Telethon. Wondering what you’ve missed on Nintendo Video? Wish you could see your favorite videos again? Want to vote for your favorite video of 2011 the old-fashioned way? Check out the Nintendo Video New Year’s Telethon running from 6 p.m. EST Dec. 31 until 2 a.m. Jan. 2. We’ll be running the classics from 2011 and taking your calls and votes!”

The videos that receive the most votes will be broadcast on the 3DS via the Nintendo Video channel for five days. The message doesn’t quite say how people will be able to vote but it’s likely that this will be done via the 3DS as well.

No word if Australia will be receiving this, I think it’s fair to say that not, it looks like it’s USA’s turn to get some goodies from Nintendo.
