REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Nintendo is offering an easy way for Wii™ console owners to access the Internet without a computer. Effective immediately, people who want to browse the Internet using their Wii consoles will be able to do so at no added cost.

The Wii Menu houses a variety of informational and entertaining channels, such as the News Channel and Wii Shop Channel, that users can visit to enhance their Wii experience. Wii consoles that are linked to a broadband Internet connection have even greater access to additional content and channels. For example, the Nintendo® Channel is an interactive guide to what’s new in the world of Nintendo that lets consumers watch trailers, mini-documentaries, product demonstrations and game-play videos, while the Check Mii Out™ Channel allows users to show off their Mii™ creations and download Miis that others have created.


– Called Monster Finder
– Being published by Alpha Unit
– DSi camera used to capture monsters
– Battle with the captured monsters
– More than 100 monster designs
– Matsuda working on character designs


Update: First details are below


– Called Shadow Walker: Kage no Shounen, Hikari no Yousei
– Game Arts handling development
– Mix of action and platforming
– Main character’s name is Lux, his fairy is called Popo
– Character only allowed to maneuver in shadow
– Releasing in Japan in October for 1,000 points

Included in this update is a newer version of Adobe Flash, making even more website content available to you.

Until now, the Internet Channel was available to download from the Wii Shop Channel for 500 Wii Points. However, as Nintendo encourages all customers and their families to enjoy browsing the internet from their sofas, the Internet Channel can now be downloaded for free.

For those who have purchased the Internet Channel for 500 Wii Points before, a special offer will be available from late October until the end of December. During this time period, you will be able to download a Virtual Console NES title worth 500 Wii Points for free.

When the exact time period for this offer is finalised, a notification will be sent out via the Wii Message Board and posted on the Nintendo of Europe website.

Thanks to Jake once again for the news tip!
