In celebration of the brand new year we’re starting things off with the release of a must-have fan favorite – Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney for WiiWare. The game will be available for download on Monday, January 11, 2010 and will cost 1,000 Wii Points. This is the original court adventure that started it all and made Pheonix Wright one of the most celebrated characters in the Capcom universe. Players will collect evidence, weed through inconsistent testimonies and overcome corrupt agendas to ensure that justice prevails! Present evidence with the wave of the Wii remote or press suspicious testimonies by wiggling it. These games can be played via single-player and has multiple save slots.

The story kicks off with Phoenix Wright defending his childhood friend Larry Butz from a murder charge. But this is only the beginning drama for the tenacious legal eagle as Wright faces unexpected tragedies that will test the limits of his incredible deductive prowess. In May, owners of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney will be able to download the bonus episode that appeared in the original Nintendo DS™ version of the game. It will cost 100 Wii Points.

Unlike the Wii version of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, the Xbox 360 release will have an exclusive character – Banjo – to play as. But you may be wondering, will the Wii version have any? Well, the answer is yes, technically. SEGA is including Mii support in the Wii version of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing. This means that you’ll be able to choose any caricature you’ve created on the Mii Channel and race against the likes of Sonic, Billy Hatcher, and Ryo Hazuki.
