Japan to Get Wii Budget Range
Posted by Brad Long
Rest of the world left waiting
Nintendo of Japan have finally introduced the "Minna no Osusume Collection" (or, for us English-speaking folk, the "Everyone's Recommendation Collection"), a range of re-released Wii titles to combat the 360 Classics and PS3 Platinum range.
Titles with high user rankings from the Japanese Nintendo Channel seem to be the way Nintendo are going about releasing this range, with an asking price of ¥2,800 (US$31) per title, which isn't bad. Each of these titles is then given the same rating that it's been given on the Nintendo Channel by its users. To start things off, these seven titles are being released:
428: Fūsa Sareta Shibuya de (this game got a perfect Famitsu rating!)
ARCRISE FANTASIA (Set to be released in North America this Summer)
Family Ski: World Ski & Snowboard (Otherwise known as We Ski & Snowboard)
ONE PIECE Unlimited Cruise: Episode One
Tales of Symphonia: Knight of Ratatosk
Dragonball Z Sparking! METEOR (Budokai Tenkaichi 3 to the rest of us!)
No news yet whether this is going to hit the rest of the world, but we'll be sure to let you know once we find out!
