It’s been a number of months since the Everyone’s Nintendo Channel was released in Japan, yet gamers have still been hopeful that it would release in other territories eventually. It appears to be that North American Wii owners are one step closer to being able to download the channel.
According to Tom Prata, Nintendo is attempting to bring the channel overseas so that consumers who are interested in specific WiiWare titles will be able to look at the game information, and ultimately judge based on the details provided if the game is suitable for them.
“…Nintendo of Japan also has the “Everyone’s Nintendo Channel” which is used to cover content, and we’re working on making that available to the North American market as well. What that will allow is the consumer to find the content and get familiar and more educated with it, and make their decision based on that.” – Tom Prata (senior director of project development of Nintendo of America)
