It's not going to be an easy couple of months for Nintendo. For one, sales on the top-selling Wii console have begun to slip. Then there's the double threat posed by Project Natal and the PlayStation Move, two new motion-control systems manufactured by Microsoft and Sony, respectively. But fret not, dear Nintendo fans! Your favorite company has a plan, and that plan involves a really big party.
