NES – Double Dragon
Man, only one title? I suppose Nintendo’s preparing for WiiWare.
EGM rumors, review scores, more
Tecmo Bowl: Kickoff for Wii/DS
Alone in the Dark
Alien Crush Wii
Space Invaders Extreme
– Rock Band 2 with new modes
– New Castlevania for DS, Wii, and a 3D 360/PS3 game
Mario Kart Wii – B+, C+, C
Good: A few great new tracks and powerups
Bad: Dumbed-down gameplay, predictable design
Blast Works: Build, Trade, Destroy – A, A-, B-
Good: Rich level/object editor
Bad: That’s pretty much if after beating the campaign
Castle of Shikigami III – C+, C+, B-
Good: It’s a shoot-em-up on Wii
Bad: It’s too short and too tough
Myst – C-, D, D
Good: Some of the new tools help
Bad: though most of them are useless
Super Dodgeball Brawlers – C+, C, C+

Bad: Short on bells and whistles, outdated presentation
I know a lot of people would be more than pleased to see Castlevania on the Wii. The new game title (Castlevania Jugement) that was discovered not too long ago may give this rumor a bit of validity. All we can do is hope for the best and wait to see if Capcom has anything in store.
ESRB updates – Magnetica WiiWare seeing localization
Super Dodge Ball (E)
Magnetica Twist (E) – May be a Wii game
Family Ping Pong (E)
If Magnetica on WiiWare is able to replicate the gameplay that can be found on the DS, I’m sure that this will be one title I’ll pick up on the Wii Shop Channel.

UK: Wii Fit sells 90 copies per minute
Posted on 13 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii | 7 Comments
According to UK retailer Woolworths, Wii Fit has been selling 90 copies for each minute that passes by. A good number of people also waited outside the store in the morning to be one of the first to purchase the game. Although not every store has sold out of copies, it is expected that many stores will run out of stock as soon as today. Wii Fit launched in Europe just a few hours ago, and has already been released in Japan. American gamers can get their hands on a copy on May 19th.
No price cuts for Wii, DS on the way
“Our earnings projection for the year is not based on hardware price cuts, and I don’t think we are going to need them.” – Satoru Iwata, President of Nintendo
With the Wii and DS Lite continuing to perform well in the market, it would not be a wise move on Nintendo to cut prices on their systems at this point. If by some unknown reason the Wii and DS falter, Nintendo could try a number techniques to boost their sales (such as bringing it new colors.)
