New name for Dr. Mario WiiWare

Since we first heard that Dr. Mario was coming to WiiWare there have been a few different western names for the game circulating on the net such as Dr. Mario's Virus Buster and Dr. Mario & Bacteria Extermination, both likely direct translations of the Japanese title, Dr. Mario & Saikin Bokumetsu.

Having checked out the new Nintendo Channel we can now confirm that the puzzler will actually be called Dr. Mario Online RX in North America! The European / Australian name looks set to be Dr. Mario & Germ Buster as it got rated by the OFLC some time ago.

The two-and-a-half minute clip also revealed pricing for the game: 1000 Wii Points ($10). It seems as if Dr. Mario Online RX will indeed debut with the launch of WiiWare next Monday, which is great news!
