You may remember that Suda 51 previously expressed interest in including Wii MotionPlus support for No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle. However, 1UP says that players will not be able to use the peripheral after all. Instead, the development team is making it up to players with the Classic Controller (and the Pro version). Although non-motion controls would seem to make the most sense with the game’s 2D minigames, the whole title can be played with a Classic Controller option.

Even though the idea of Street Fighter IV on Wii has been teased a few times, the possibility has yet to materialize. Now Capcom appears to be moving on. News regarding a new Street Fighter title is on the way, as the official blog for SFIV received an update. There’s a small note about a sequel, in which Natsuki Shiozawa states that there will be an announcement very soon. Although I’m not confident this game will end up on the Wii, there is still a chance since, obviously, there has not been a discussion of platforms involved yet. Perhaps we’ll hear something about the sequel at TGS.

That’s right – The Game & Watch collection has been removed from Club Nintendo. And unfortunately, Nintendo has yet to add any additional prizes. You may remember that Denise Kaigler teased exclusive artwork for this month, but that reward has yet to go live on the site. I assume that it should be up sometime in the next two weeks if Denise plans on keeping her word!
