Nintendo continues to impress with the sales of both the Nintendo DS and Wii taking both the top spots over all of its competitors. It should be interesting to see this month’s sales with the release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl.


Wii, and even DS owners have been known to be victims of developers who do not put effort into creating their games – ports, cash-ins, and the removal of features in other versions of a specific game are commonly found in Wii and DS versions of multi-console games. Sadly, Sega Superstars Tennis is heading in this direction. Although the game seems to hold up quite well when compared to the other versions, one aspect that is missing is the online functionality in both the Wii and DS games. According to Sumo Digital, however, online modes are absent only because of a time constraint. Apparently, they simply did not have enough time to guarantee a workable online mode.

Unfortunately, a number of Super Smash Bros. Brawl owners have been plagued with issues dealing with the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. One of the main problems gamers have faced gamers is the Spectator Mode. For some, Spectator Mode had failed to show up the past few days. Luckily, Nintendo was right on the case. According to a NOA tech representative, “the Spectator Mode and Options menu started appearing for most people early this morning.”

Initial online woes with Brawl have been strong, but it looks like Nintendo is trying to fix many of the problems.

REDMOND, Wash., March 12, 2008 – This year, the typical signs of spring will be accompanied by the sweet sound of revving engines and the sight of lightning-fast shells whizzing around every corner. Mario Kart® Wii is zooming toward its launch in the United States on April 27. The game comes with the intuitive Wii Wheel™, which makes it easy for novices to compete against veterans, so no one is left in the dust. And with a broadband hookup to Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection, players can compete with up to 11 other drivers from around the world for racing dominance.

“Mario Kart Wii transforms one of our most popular franchises into a race that every member of the family can join,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Driving with the Wii Wheel could not be more natural, and this is one place where speeding is encouraged.”

Mario Kart Wii will include 16 new courses and 16 classic courses from previous Mario Kart games. For the first time ever, players have the option of racing with either karts or motorbikes. Players can also hit the road as their personalized Mii™ caricatures in addition to the handful of classic Nintendo characters found in the game. True to the series, the game features tons of racing, plenty of power-ups and oodles of objects for players to use to slow down other drivers. And 10 battle arenas will keep players busy between trips around the circuit.
