WiiWare to Support Flash Soon

The Official Cave Story Blog has revealed that soon WiiWare developers will be able to code games using Flash, which opens up a world of exciting (and possibly not so exciting) gaming experiences for Wii owners.

Games like Defend Your Castle originally started life as free PC-based Flash titles, and recent Xbox Live Arcade hits such as Castle Crashers also owe a massive debt to the programming format, which tends to encourage titles that offer instant playability and addictive challenges.

However, for every decent Flash game there are about 10 less desirable ones, so hopefully this won’t signal a drop in quality on WiiWare.
