TXT ‘ZELDA’ 2 ‘20769’ 4 CHANCE 2 WIN TRP 2 NYC!!1!

Golden DSObnoxious, huh? Well, it’s what the kids are doing these days, with the texting and the Googling and the whatnot, and Nintendo has it all covered with a new contest!

Beginning today, to mark the Oct. 1 launch of The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, Nintendo is asking people to answer three Zelda-related trivia questions for the chance to win an amazing collection of prizes. I don’t know what the questions are yet, but one of them has to be about estimating the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow. Has to be.

To receive the three trivia questions, contestants must text “Zelda” to 20769 or enter by mail by visiting Zelda.com between Sept. 13 and Oct. 26. People who answer all three questions correctly will automatically be entered into the contest.

One First Prize winner will receive a trip for two to New York, two nights at a hotel, a $1,000 closed-door shopping spree at Nintendo World, $500 spending money, a special-edition Nintendo DS and a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. Nine Finalists will receive a special-edition gold Nintendo DS and a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. Winners of the first prize and their guests must be 18 or older.

Get dialing Infendo, and don’t forget your friends here at the site when you win.
