Dr Mario WiiWare Pulling A Sickie?

From the very moment a Dr Mario game was announced for WiiWare we’ve been eagerly anticipating its arrival. Whether we’re supposed to call it Dr. Mario Online RX or Dr. Mario & Germ Buster, it doesn’t matter to us; we just want to play it already! It was a surprising move for Nintendo to not make this available for the North American WiiWare launch last Monday, but now it looks like we may have to wait a little longer still.

With only Star Soldier R and Konami’s Critter Round-Up having been confirmed for this Monday’s batch of WiiWare games it is starting to look like we might have to wait a bit longer.

WiiWare launches on Tuesday, 20th May in Europe and Dr Mario WiiWare is one of the games said to be within the “launch window” so who knows who will get it first. Both sides of the Atlantic had better get practicing for some intercontinental pill dropping puzzle madness over Wi-Fi soon!

See the Dr Mario page for updated screenshots, which show some of the connectivity options in the game. Star Soldier R has some new screens which you might want to check out also.
