Nintendo of Europe Announces April-July WiiWare / DSiWare Lineup
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
Cave Story and others coming soon!
For the first time in, uh, well, forever, Nintendo of Europe has decided to give us a small glimpse of what we can look forward to in the next couple of months.
Note that list is not complete - For example, Square Enix announced only yesterday that Bubble Bobble, Rainbow Islands and Crystal Defenders R1 and R2 would be coming soon, but the only one out of those on the list is Crystal Defenders R1!
NoE's list is as follows:
- Bonsai Barber (Nintendo)
- Cave Story (Nicalis)
- ColorZ (Exkee)
- Crystal Defenders R1 (Square Enix)
- Icarian: Kindred Spirits (Over the Top Games)
- LIT (Wayforward Technologies)
- Overturn: Mecha Wars (Gamebridge)
- Robocalypse: Beaver Defense (Vogster Entertainment)
- Spaceball: Revolution (Virtual Toys)
- Squibs Arcade (Alten8)
- Swords & Soldiers (Ronimo Games)
- Water Warfare (Hudson Soft)
- A Little Bit of... Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training: Maths Edition (Nintendo)
- Art Style: PICOPICT (Nintendo)
- Mighty Flip Champs! (Wayforward Technologies)
- Mixed Messages (Activision)
- Pop Superstar: Road to Celebrity (Gameloft)
- Real Football 2009 (Gameloft)
Of course, NoE's Managing Director of Marketing & PR, Laurent Fischer, also takes a moment to gloat about how much of a success WiiWare is:
”We are pleased by how far WiiWare has come since its launch last year. Currently there are approximately 58 WiiWare games available in Europe, packed with exciting content available to download through the Wii Shop Channel. This just goes to demonstrate the breadth of creativity that Wii users now have access to. We are particularly pleased that WiiWare has enabled developers to make games on our platform which they may not have had a chance to do otherwise. Now that Nintendo DSiWare has launched across Europe we hope that the same principles of WiiWare will follow suit on the new handheld console, allowing a greater and diverse range of software and applications to be made available for users on the go.”
