Nintendo and American Heart Association to make announcement on May 17

Nintendo and the American Heart Association will co-host a press event in New York City this Monday, May 17. The brief press release for the event does not offer any indication as to what the announcement will be, but Nintendo's upcoming Vitality Sensor, designed to measure a player's pulse, seems the likely focus of the event -- and the sort of thing the American Heart Association would be into co-promoting. Additionally, only the Wii is highlighted in the release, and not the DS, suggesting this is a Wii-related event.

With the Vitality Sensor scheduled for a 2010 release, now seems like a good time for Nintendo to start talking about its features and software. We're just looking forward to being able to say, "Wow, we get it."
