Wii Chess Comes to WiiWare in Japan

If you keep up with retail Wii games, you're probably aware that way back in January, Europe got the game Wii Chess, which was basically just chess (With Wi-Fi) at the price of a budget title. Nintendo never announced the title for release in any other region - Not even Australia - Until now!

Next week, Japanese players can download the renamed World Chess on WiiWare - This is exactly the same as Wii Chess, except in downloadable form, and thus cheaper! It doesn't look like it'll have any additional features, and Japanese players will even be able to play against Europeans who own the retail game (And vice versa of course). We don't think this will be released in Europe, but it might happen in the US - Who knows!
