Nintendo Co., Ltd. revised upward its financial and unit shipment forecasts for both the six month period ending September 30, 2008, and for the full fiscal year ending March 31, 2009.

Compared with original full year forecasts issued on April 24, 2008, the company sees increases in sales by 11.1%, in operating income by 22.6%, and in net income by 26.2%. Financial revisions were the result of continued robust sales for both Wii and Nintendo DS, as well as changes in the expected foreign currency exchange rates based on recent trends in the foreign currency exchange markets.

On the same basis, new forecasts for full year global hardware and software unit shipments for both platforms increased as follows:
As of 4/08 As of 8/08
Nintendo DS hardware: 28 million 30.5 million
Nintendo DS software: 187 million 197 million
Wii hardware: 25 million 26.5 million
Wii software: 177 million 186 million

In addition, the company announced a change in dividend policy (see attached). For the full fiscal year ending March 31, 2009, it issued a revised dividend estimate of ¥1,680 per share, an increase of 22% over the original estimate stated on April 24, 2008.

Delivering an innovative way to experience handheld gaming, Tony Hawk’s Motion and Hue Pixel Painter utilizes the Motion Pack to feature accelerometer technology on the Nintendo DS.

In Tony Hawk’s Motion players can twist, tilt and turn through numerous skateboarding sessions and for the first time in franchise history, the game brings snowboarding to its line-up adding to the more than 20 diverse mini-challenges available including new ones like Rail Hopper and Slalom and familiar ones like Hawk-Man and High Score.

Once players finish grinding through locales like Tokyo, Dubai, Vermont and the Alps, they can switch gears and dip into the action-oriented puzzler Hue Pixel Painter. Uncovering sources of paint below the ground’s surface, players take Hue through various landscapes bringing color back to a dreary environment and defending against the Drabs who have set out to leave the world gray and bland.

– Not the “next-gen” Indiana Jones game
– Developed by A2M
– Story about staff of Moses
– No Nazi characters in the game, but there are LEGO-like nazis (basically, they’re not nazis)
– Twin-balloon zeppelin part of the game
– PS2, Wii versions were in development – not sure if they still are

…Whether you like it or not!

I’m assuming that Nintendo will release this sometime in the near future (meaning this year.) Why else would they rate the game so early? Nonetheless, Wii Music will definitely release in Australia – You can be sure of that!
