Update: Bumping this to the front page because the European date is in as well – It’ll be releasing on November 20.

Nintendo can be quite sneaky sometimes. The Shantae DSiWare news was hidden in a press release of upcoming Wii/WiiWare/DS/DSiWare titles. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Big N has taken a similar approach with sharing the release date for New Super Mario Bros. Wii. In the official Wii price drop announcement, Nintendo listed when the game will launch – November 15. We’re still waiting for a European date, but its rumored to come out on November 27.

Note: This summary is complete for the most part, but there may be some missing bits here and there. Also, I started the summary before the Wii price drop was announced, so keep that in mind when reading the summary!

Wii price drop

– Still hasn’t happened
– All signs pointing to it though
– A bunch of leaked ads from retailers
– Nintendo will be making an announcement soon
– Matt will be surprised if by this time tomorrow it isn’t official
– Nintendo has been saying they wouldn’t do a price drop
– Wii has seen dramatic decrease in sales
– Sony dropped the price of the PS3
– Nintendo probably feels it is time for the drop
– Need something exciting going into the holiday season, not just a game
– Not doing different system colors in US
– Even at $199 Nintendo will still be making a lot of money

Rumors about a new SKU

– MotionPlus and Wii Sports Resort
– Would be $250 still
– Craig hopes they do a throwback to the NES days and put both games on one disc
– It’s a drag to exchange Wii Sports/Resort discs

Some new, some old…

This is a portion of an email that I received from Capcom…

“Today at the Tokyo Game Show, Tatsunoko VS Capcom Ultimate All-Stars producer Ryota Niitsuma has announced Dead Rising’s Frank West as a playable character in TvC. Tatsunoko VS Capcom Ultimate All-Stars is due to be released in North America on January 26, 2010.”
