Swords & Soldiers Out in North America Next Monday

Posted by Marcel van Duyn

WiiWare's first RTS game finally hits American shores in a few days.

Ronimo Games has announced that Swords & Soldiers will be released in North America on June 8th. That's next week!

Although you probably already know by now, Swords & Soldiers is the first RTS (Real-time strategy) game to be released on WiiWare. It's also a 2D sidescroller instead of featuring an overhead map like most RTS games - This makes it a lot more simple to learn, but it's still hard to master. You can play as three completely different factions, each with their very own unique units, constructions and spells, as you try to beat each of their campaigns or play their special minigames. As the game has already been out in Europe for a while, naturally, we've already reviewed it. We think it's one of the best WiiWare games yet, so you're in for a treat!

This means it's the second week in a row that we already know of two or more games being released - Yesterday, at E3, Nintendo announced that Mario Vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again!, for DSiWare, would be released next Monday as well. What else will be released?

Why couldn't this come out a couple weeks ago? I reset my router and have not been able to connect to the internet with my Wii since. I have no idea why it won't connect. All the settings are the same and I get internet on everything else. Now that this if finally coming out I won't be able to buy it.

Oh well, either way, Monday looks like it's gonna be a great update. I'm just hoping there will be a good VC game too.

This is going to be a good Monday for a bunch of you, but again I don't own a DSi for Mario/DK and I have no interest in this game. Why do I have to be so damn picky with these releases. :|

You do realize NintendoLife does post out the price tag (located at top) of announced/released prices of each game, but who knows we did got Bubble Bobble Plus for cheaper.

This is a fantastic game. You can't go wrong buying it. On a tangent thought, whatever happened to cave story?
