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!
