Proving that there's life in the old dog yet, Nintendo Europe has sent over a list of Wii games you can expect to play in early 2012 and beyond.

While there's only one WiiWare game on the list — and most disappointingly no Virtual Console titles — the retail releases are still of a pretty high calibre, with big hitters across the board.

There's also the confirmed European name for Rhythm Heaven Fever — in Europe it's known as Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise.

Here's the list for your perusal.
