New Dragon Quest Wii Images

I cannot wait anymore for this title! Square, please let us know when to expect this game!


3 Million Strong....And Growing!

The current estimates from November 1st to December 25th show that the Nintendo Wii has sold 1.8 Million units in North America alone. Early reports out of Japan estimate that the big N has sold over 800k units of its innovative 5th console.

Currently it is highly likely that Nintendo has easily hit the 3 Million mark. With innovation, strong support from 3rd parties and an intuitive interface, it seems like the Wii is a success story that cannot be avoided. Game ON, and congratulations to Nintendo.

Nintendo Likes Nexon?

Here is a story taken from the good guys over at DigitalBattle.

In a press conference with Korean media, president Satoru Iwata has announced that Nintendo of Korea will have a partnership with popular Seoul-based online game developer and publisher, Nexon. They have brought games such as Maple Story, WarRock, and Kartrider. Nexon is known as among the pioneers of MMORPG gaming.

This now means that there will be future Nexon games on Nintendo systems. A Nintendo DS version of Maple Story was announced at E3 2006, and it is due for a release in 2007 in South Korea. Nexon only creates MMO games, so the online system of the DS would have to be revamped. Possibly user names instead of friend codes, and actual in-game communication instead of using third party devices such as your computer?

This is definitely good news, seeing as there will now be full-fledged MMO games on a portable game system, however, there are no plans to release the games outside of Korea, yet. A localized version of the Nintendo DS will be hitting stores January 2007, while the Wii will be reaching shores in Q4 2007

My Thoughts:

I say, the more games the merrier. I love the way that third party developers seem to be embracing Nintendo's way of thinking and it could only spell out good things for everyone's favorite video game company. As always, we will have to keep you updated on any new happenings. Could we see the popular Maple Story on the Wii perhaps?

Fan Made Box Art: Super Smash Edition!

One word, Talent. This image was found on Nintendo Official Forums page.

Controversy Creates Demand!

The title to this story was inspired by wrestling icon Eric Bishoff. In this lovely little post, I will be describing on why all of the negative press that Nintendo's newly released 5th console has been getting, is good for the company. I really hope that this story spreads some thought provoking discussion and I cannot wait to hear what all of you have to say (feel free to link this story with your site or comment in our comment section).

Just a short time ago, Nintendo released a 5th entry into the console wars, named Wii. The name "Wii" in itself was "controversial" at the time and was a conscious decision that the big N knew would receive a roller coaster of responses. When the system launched in America and in Japan it was a smash hit, but all was not well within the gaming community. A small portion of out of control gamers have been complaining about the system, stating that their own foolish behavior has sent "wii-motes" flying through televisions, windows, old ladies and injuring the masses. All of this negative buzz that has surrounded Wii sure has got the public talking, doesn't it? It seems that everywhere I turn within my circle of friends, the Nintendo Wii has been a topic of choice.

Whether they realize it or not, all of this negative buzz has created a Nintendo product to become almost "dangerous" to have. Whenever a gamer hears that a product is controversial, they immediately seem to grasp hold to it and desire that specific product even more. GTA anyone? Mortal Kombat when it originally came out? The list could go on and on. I am just proving a point that all of this negative press for Nintendo's Wii-mote strap breaking, is in reality be a good for the compnay. It has helped shed the "kiddie" image that Nintendo has been labeled with since last generation.

The public hears these stories of injuries and TV's breaking, that they themselves need to try the system out and see if it really is "that bad". Personally my strap for my remote has shown absolutely no signs of breaking. I play the system daily with numerous gamers and non-gamers alike and still no signs of breakage. Nintendo themselves has done the smart thing and is replacing thousands upon thousands of wrist straps voluntarily for gamers who request it.

This controversy has adversely affected the sales of Nintendo new product. Granted the system is superbly innovative, but in my opinion, the negative press that the wii-mote has experienced has only helped the systems sales in the long run. Television, Internet, local newspapers are all talking Wii. What do you guys think? Please comment below and have a great holiday!

For all of you gamers out there who still do not have a set of Wii component cables and is unwilling to sell their first born to purchase a set on ebay, (although they have come down quite a bit), make sure you click on the affiliate Playasia button located on the right side of the site. I ordered mine today and it was only $13.00 out of pocket. If a lot of you order, I will use the money that I get from the affiliation program to run a future contest for the site. Game ON.

Rumour: Wii Sports 2 in Development?

Rumour has it that Wii Sports 2 is in development by Nintendo that will include sports games like Tennis, Hockey, Volleyball, Swimming and Horse Riding. The great part is that this version will have online support, so you could play against other Wii Sports gamers around the world!

My Thoughts:
Please Nintendo, make it be so! Wii sports has become a mammoth success and is a blast to play when anyone is in the house. Family members from all walks come to my humble abode to play this title and adding online support would be phenomenal. I could definitely see this rumor coming true. Let's keep those "wii-motes" crossed shall we.

Nintendo’s recent upgrade of the Nintendo Wii features a new waether channel! The channel has a 3D globe in which you can spin and check the temperature in various cities around the world, as well as a five day forecast. Other than that, the new channel is quite basic, and doesn’t offer any advanced features.

Final Fantasy Wii?

The good guys over at randomnewz reported the following:

Recently Square-Enix has announced the latest installment of Dragon Quest on the DS and it seems like they are giving Nintendo a tremendous amount of support contrary to last gen. But there is even a bigger game that Square will be releasing on Nintendo’s home console the Wii, Final Fantasy. From a Square rep. we have recieved a tip that a Final Fantasy is being developed as I type this out. It won’t be a sequal to the latest FF’s but rather it will be similar to the DS’s FF3 and can be said to be a port/remake. This is great news to all Wii owners.

More good news for Nintendo Wii. Game ON!

Prince of Persia Wii Screens

Here are the first shots of the upvoming Wii title, Prince of Persia.



Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones Information

The following information was taken from the good guys over at codenamerevolution. In their latest post, they dissect the newest issue of Nintendo Power which is chalk full of gooides. Below is some new information on the upcoming Prince of Persia game for the Nintendo Wii.

Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones. Game is identical to the Gamecube version. Meaning it’s the same graphics etc. Major difference is the gameplay. Here is a summary of what you could do:

Dagger Plant: Press A to jump, B to run along a wall…to plant your dagger into objects you flick the Wiimote and it becomes awkward at first, later it’ll work out when you get the timing right.
Speed Kill: If you get close enough to an enemy without being spotted, you can cut him down quickly with a series of well-timed strikes. Swing the nunchuk to initiate kill and flick the Wiimote.

Free-Form Fighting: Nunchuk represents the Prince’s left hand while the Wiimote represents his right hand (dagger). Slash nunchuk for secondary weapon attack or grabbing enemies. Nunchuk can control the daggertail (as dark prince).

Daggertail: Use the Nunchuk by flicking it to swing from poles or to latch onto blocks and pull the nunchuk towards you when you grabbed an object so it can slowly come to you.

VC New Release Monday!

Quick Update: Military Madness, Space Harrier 2 and Tennis have been released today for the Wii’s Virtual Console in North America.

Wii Remote Best Selling Accessory

The best selling accessory in North America in the month of November was infact the Nintendo Wii Remote.

The "wiimote" sold 270,000 units during November, and I am certain they would've sold more if they were not sold otu everywhere. In the same period, 153,000 nunchuk peripherals were also sold, while consumers snapped up 476,000 Wii consoles.

For all of those keeping score, Sony’s Sixaxis controller only managed to sell 98,000 units.

Sega Saturn to VC?

File this one under rumor gamers.

The rumor comes from fellow reader Fei34 who claims that a fellow DigiPen employee told him that Sega Saturn games would indeed be making an appearance on the Wii. Although this could still be wells away from becoming true, the fact that DigiPen, a highly respected video-game school in Redmond Washington, has this sort of knowledge is pretty intriguing. Especially by the fact that both Nintendo of America’s offices and DigiPen’s campus actually interconnects by a simple hallway. Could Fei34’s DigiPen source have even closer access to NOA’s employees in which he/she may have gotten the information?

The only thing that Fei34 left me was a confirmation that a “big game was coming.” Whether that’s a Sega Saturn game (like Panzer Dragoon Saga) or not, only time will tell. So don’t dismiss Nintendo’s systems on the Virtual Console as being cemented just yet.

What do you think? In my opinion, the more games that we get the better. I will have to keep an eye open for this one. Keep it here.
