Thanks to Joclo for the news tip!

Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo executive vice president of sales and marketing, not only confirmed today that the system is still on track to release before the end of the holiday, but it will also be similar to Japan’s setup. There will be mostly physical prizes up for grabs and will feature both Japanese and North American related items.

“It’s weighted more toward physical goods. …When you purchase a Nintendo product, you go on and you say that you’ve purchased a Nintendo product, you get points for that. You also get points for filling out surveys to talk about your experience with the product. You actually get points before you purchase, if you indicate an interest in purchasing… So it really helps us to gauge marketplace demand. As you collect points — these are actually gold coins — you’re able to trade them in for real merchandise.”

While most of us have had the opportunity to sit down and guide Toku through the world of Mistralis for many months now, Japan has yet to see the game become available. However, this will change soon, as Square Enix has announced that they plan to publish the game in Land of the Rising Sun. The game will cost 1,000 Wii points and will be available in December.

NEW YORK, NY – November 14, 2008 – Atari, Inc. one of the world’s most recognized video game publishers, today announced the development of a new and dramatically enhanced iteration of its equestrian title, My Horse & Me, for Wii™ and Nintendo DS™. Scheduled to release in March 2009, My Horse & Me: Riding for Gold, provides horse enthusiasts with one of the most authentic, compelling equine experiences ever seen in a video game.

With the exclusive license from the FEI (International Equestrian Federation), one of the world’s foremost horse sports organization, My Horse & Me: Riding for Gold, features competitions and courses based in actual US and European locations, realistic riding animations and models, extensive training, grooming, and vet activities, as well as custom horse and rider modes. The game also includes beautifully detailed environments and an engrossing storyline that captures the spirit, excitement, and pressure of equine competition.

Wii Sports and Wii Fit have, for the most part, sold at astronomical rates. Though, the same cannot be said for the third brother in the family, Wii Music. Reported NPD numbers say that Wii Music sold more than 50,000 units, which isn’t exactly terrible. However, compared to Wii Fit, Wii Music has garnered a less successful reception. Nintendo wholeheartedly believes in the game, however, and are more than willing to defend the game’s sales.

“You’ll see in [the NPD sales] that it did about somewhere [like] 65 or 66,000 based on our internal numbers for the two weeks that was reported…We’re predicting that it’s going to be an evergreen title. And if you look at titles like ‘Brain Age,’ it’s about the same as what ‘Brain Age’ did during it’s first few weeks and went on to sell 2.5 million copies. ‘Wii Fit’ certainly had a larger launch than that. But I think that people are starting to understand ‘Wii Music.’” – Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo executive vice president of sales and marketing

Update: The numbers initially reported were incorrect. NPD has clarified that the Xbox 360 version of World Tour actually sold a bit more than the Wii edition.

NPD numbers last night showed that Guitar Hero World Tour failed to reach the top 10 software sales for October. There may be a bright spot for Activision, however, or at least as far as the Wii version goes. Even though the game sold 534,000 copies across all platforms – which is a respectable number in itself – 183,000 units of the Wii version were purchased by gamers. This figure is actually more than what the PS3 and 360 numbers of World Tour sold, which may give third-parties something to consider in the future.
