That's great! The game looks really awesome and I look forward to buying it when it comes to North America tomorrow. Also, don't you mean the Wii Shop charts? :P

I think they're the same, they can be viewed from both (Wii shop and Club Nintendo) locations.

@bboy2970: The charts on Nintendos website say: "This week's most downloaded titles by the [country] Club Nintendo members", but you are still right because usually the charts doesn't really differ from the real WiiWare charts (but those are not directly available on the internet).

Nice, the game looks and sounds fantastic and gameplay is really good... but I wish it was a bit more forgiving. The AI is a bit too good for me.:(

You guys definitely deserve the success though. Slightly off topic here but do you know if/when Nano Assault will get a European release? I know Majesco hasn't been in the best shape and they stopped releasing games in Europe AFAIK.

I've recently downloaded Fast Racing League. I think it's an awesome racer and maybe one of the top 5 WiiWare titles that exist. But the AI and the learning curve maybe too much for some gamers. So I'm starting this post specifically for strategy and FAQ help. Since I was locked from starting a new topic. I'm already aware that you can gain a large speed boost at the beginning of the race, if you push accelerate exactly when the race announcer says "GO". And I'm already aware of the other two speed boosts available, if you hit accelerate exactly as you cross the 2nd and 3rd lap of the race. If you have any additional strategies or FAQ info please add your replies. There are people who could use your help. I'm not saying I do though... wink... wink.

Yeah the AI is relentless, but I would say the overall feeling of the game reminds me more of Wipeout 64.

I wish Wipeout 64 would come to VC. Nintendo really needs to expand the N64 library for VC. Seriously there are more Sega titles than N64 titles. But Nintendo says they can't make a lot of VC titles available, because of licensing complications. Go figure lol.

I just downloaded it yesterday and it's worth everyone of the 1,000 Wii points it costed. So yeah, if you like futuristic racers then definitely acquire this one.

You can check out the many different crash sequence scenes, with your WiiWheel. Or just use the WiiMote and Nunchuck combo. lol
please use the 'Edit' link to edit your last post to a thread as opposed to double or triple-posting in a row, thank you — TBD I wonder if Fast stands for Futuristic Aeronautical Speed Track?

I suggested online capabilities for FAST, to SHIN'EN. They replied "It would have doubled the cost to produce the title. And that wasn't in their budget for producing WiiWare games". I would've paid another $10 for that option. I mean $15 WiiWare titles already exist. Too bad, it would've made the game a lot more appealing to a wider audience. Well that's just what I think. Maybe they'll produce a retail version with more leagues, tracks and hovercrafts. Deeper visual customization wouldn't hurt at all as well. But I'm going to go out on a limb and say that's not going to happen, unless sales for this title prove worthy. I wouldn't loose hope for it though. I mean CaveStory made it's debut as freeware and through it's success is a $15 WiiWare title. I own the freeware version. lol

I recently sent another inquiry to SHIN'EN. For any additional secrets or codes that they may have knowledge of. I'm hoping for a reply in the near future. I will post any additional info I receive here on this thread.

Still no response from SHIN'EN. I guess they're too busy or something. Well if I ever do receive a response, I'll post the findings here.

If you're looking for secrets, you'll find a bunch on Youtube. Some Youtuber has discovered a bunch of shortcuts by using jump pads and other creative ideas. I tried out a few of these and got them to work:

Thanks, I'll check this out for sure. In the meantime, how about you help me out a little more? Post whatever tricks or strategies you've already executed in this thread. I'll post any that I can confirm executable.
