European release dates for WiiWare and Nintendo Channel announced
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
Nintendo of Europe today issued a press release containing the dates for multiple games to be released in Q2. While no doubt plenty of people will be happy Super Smash Bros. Brawl is included in the list, of note to this site is the fact that both upcoming Wii features have been dated.
WiiWare will be added to the Wii Shop on the 20th of May. No specific titles have been announced to release on that day, but from what's been rated by groups such as the OFLC, we predict that the titles will include one or more of the following:
- ActionLoop Twist
- Critter Round-Up
- Dr. Mario & Germ Buster
- Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King
- Plättchen Twist 'n' Paint
- Project Bang!
- Star Soldier R
- Toki Tori
The Nintendo Channel, released at the end of last year in Japan as Everybody's Nintendo Channel, will let you download demos or additional content for DS games, view trailers and commercials of Wii games and get more information on games.
According to Wired's Chris Kohler, who spoke with Reggie, the US will see the Nintendo Channel soon after the launch of WiiWare. Reggie also said that you'll be able to review WiiWare games you've bought on the Nintendo Channel, but only if you've played them for more than an hour.
