Although the itinerary has not been announced, organizers say the tour will run from September 27 to November 11, with stops planned in around 40 cities.

Last year’s Nintendo Fusion Tour was a largely sold-out affair featuring Fall Out Boy, The Starting Line and others.

“Nintendo always picks great rock bands, and we are happy to follow in that tradition this year,” says Hawthorne Heights singer JT Woodruff. “But mainly, I am an old-school video game nerd. I still have my NES with over 500 games. I love everything Mario, and I accept no substitute. Bring on Wii!”

Nintendo will showcase its new handheld gaming system, DS Lite, and give a sneak peek of its upcoming console, Wii, at each venue.
