Post • Wii News & Updates

Hello fellow Wii buddies!
Here I'll be posting up any news and updates on Nintendo's newly successful system titled Wii (and DS).
I do weekly posts mostly on new releases of classic games (from NES, SNES, N64, Sega Genesis, TurboGrafix16, etc.) on the Virtual Console located within the Wii Shop Channel.

So basically, I'm just copying and pasting from my Wii blog to here and other forums. \:D/

Also, I hope I'm allowed to double post multiple times because judging from the activity in this forum, I've got a feeling some times there won't be a reply after my last post. So the following post will be the latest news I wrote last Monday.

// Roth

wooo! i wanted it. but never got a chance to go out and buy it.

Strikers look like a lot of fun.

my wii sensor bar spazzes out though, so it pisses me off when i play games. i tried putting it up top of the tv but that doesnt help, then i place it below the tv, and its too hard to aim. i dont think they really thought it through especially with people who has tv's that are 72inches..

Wii and Playstation3

My brother enjoys PlayStation3, but I think he should be playing Nintendo Wii. According to him, the Wii is actually cheaper.
There aren't as many good games for the PL3, but it's tons of fun, I hear. Like, they run to about over 2,000 dollars and were sold out the first day they came out here in Seattle.

For aaron, you may have to adjust the sensor settings drag to number 5 and play at least 6 ft away. Or else, you may experience jaggy cursors, etc.
----
As for my reply the replies so far, I'd have to say every one is entitled to their own opinions. You can hate or love it. But the fact is the Wii is still selling faster than most any electronic equipment known to man and is tailgating the Xbox 360 sales, check out the VGChartz.com. Love Me, Hate the Game~
-------
Hey all, sorry for the late update. My schedule was really tight yesterday so I didn't have much computer time to write.

Anyway, latest news first. There's a new Wii Firmware update version 3.0U; It's been a while since our last firmware update so here's a list of what's up:

- Digital Clock added to the Wii Menu right under the channel bar
- Forecast Channel now displays the current condition (cloudy, raining, etc.) directly in the Wii Menu in the Forecast Channel box

Wii Shop Channel Redesigned (Visual aesthetic is the same, changes made to organization and browsing methods mostly)
- New Welcome screen detailing 4 Recommended Titles and the points they cost (gone is the title screen bar that had linkable games). The title bar can be clicked on to bring up a list of 20 recommended games.
- Titles You’ve Downloaded was moved to the main shop menu
- New ways to browse (by genre, etc.)

More details at Source: Vooks

Also, notice to all Wii owners with modchips! The update will disable all modified Wiis so be careful before you update to make sure that your modchip manufacturer has this backed up. \:D/

-------------

super smash brawl sounds great..

really looking forward to that.

i tried adjusting the sensor bar and it works better now. it still deters away from point sometimes, but its not as bad as it was before.

i still think the wii has much better potential in the long run versus the other systems. the 360 is awesome (i have it as well), and the PS3 is a big failure compared to the ps2.

As some of you may know this month is Metroid Month! in celebration of the anniversary when the first Metroid was released on the NES (aka Famicom). So Nintendo is releasing some previews of the upcoming Metroid Prime 3: Corruption which will be the final chapter the Prime trilogy series. This channel can be downloaded from the Wii Shop at no cost.
------------

So here are today's new classic games release within the Wii Shop's Virtual Console:

-------------

Now for Smash Bros. updates!
Pit's got a Final Smash move (Palutena's Army)
Pit is the captain of Palutena’s Army, the guardians of the Goddess of Light! It’s said that when he raises his voice to heaven, this goddess will appear:


Frankin Badge acts as a reflector.

LOL @ Kirby ^

-------------
New details on Super Mario Galaxy says the game will feature six worlds varying from size and style based on the themes of fire, ice, water, sand, fruit, and more. As inspired by Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES), Mario will be able to suit up as a Bee which enables him to fly, a Boo suit which enables him to become a ghost and be left alone by other Boos. Mario will still be able to butt stomp (or ground pound) and long jump. He'll also be collecting multi-colored stars which are used for shooting enemies, power ups, perform special attacks
The game is dated for November 12th in the US, others will get a release date around the same time.

• Wii News & Updates 2007.08.20

Okay, earlier within the week, we all were celebrating the fact that Wii has now caught up to XBox360's sales, no surprise there 'cause it's bound to happen, and are now racing head to head.

This graph shows total console sales from the launch of the 360.
The Nintendo Wii has officially sold 10,680,000 consoles in less then 9 months after it's launch on November 19th, 2006. The Wii surpassed the Microsoft Xbox 360 (which has been on the market for a year and 9 months) and nearly tripling the PS3.

Here's a proper breakdown: VGChartz

---------------------
Today's Virtual Console Update!

You’ve longed for it, you’ve begged for it and now it's finally here. Nintendo's Month of Metroid continues with today's release of the ultra-classic Super Metroid® for the Super NES®. It's one of the many teasers to wet your appetite in advance of the Aug. 27 release of Metroid® Prime 3: Corruption for Wii™. You have a full week to dive into Super Metroid and explore the other great new games added to the Wii Shop Channel: Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master™ and Neutopia.


Super Metroid
Super NES
1 player
rated E for Everyone - Mild Violence
800 Wii Points
Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_metroid


Shinobi II: Return of the Ninja Master
Sega Genesis
1 player
rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older - Animated Blood, Fantasy Violence
800 Wii Points
Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shinob...he_Ninja_Master


Neutopia
TurboGrafx16
1 player
rated E for Everyone - Mild Fantasy Violence
600 Wii Points
Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutopia

More info and gameplay previews @ www.wii.com

---------------------
Continuing on with Metroid Month, if you guys don't know yet, there's a Metroid Prime 3 Preview channel available for free download where you can view gameplay videos of the upcoming game. Two new videos have been added today. Be sure to check them out when you get the chance!

Also, you may test out the Metroid Prime 3 Demo at your local Gamestop/EB Games stores.
We've got another full week until the future masterpiece arrives. If you can't wait and want to spoil yourselves, you may find some real gameplay footage on YouTube, 'cause 1up crew has gotten a hold of the game earlier in the week before everyone else.

By the way just to show off some Metroid pride, earlier last week I bought myself a Metroid T-shirt; New in stock @ Hot Topic:


---------------------
Img: http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/..._2007/arwii.jpg
According to Datel staff, the new Action Replay for the Wii will not be usable online. Even if hackers make codes designed for online, it will not work. This will most likely come as a relief to Action Replay haters out there, and it will make online much more fair and fun. The release date for the Action Replay Wii is also delayed, and the new release date is February 1st, 2008.

--------------------
New Brain Age 2+DSLite Crimson/Onyx Bundle:

It's a cool new color in the DS line. The bundle all together will cost $149.99 and hits stores around August 21st (tomorrow!).
If you're lucky, I read that BestBuy has a mistake of having fully red DSLites rather than a combo with Onyx black. So if you stumble upon it, don't return it cause it's very RARE~! \:D/
"The top half of the new Nintendo DS sports a smooth, glossy Crimson, reminiscent of a dangerous shade of lipstick or a cherry-red sports car. The bottom is a matte black – an Onyx yin that complements the Crimson yang."
"Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day is the sequel to the smash-hit original that got baby boomers and seniors playing and redefined the concept of what video games could be. This new title includes 15 fun new activities designed to help users exercise their brains. It challenges players in areas like math, memorization and even music."
Though there's been no release date for the UK.

-------------------
Medal of Honor: Heroes 2
Producer of EA Canada, Matt Tomporowski, spoke with IGN about the upcoming Medal of Honor sequel about "Action Gestures" being a "huge part of the game". One such gesture will allow players to reload their shotgun by pumping the Nunchuk in a manner typical of that weapon. "We also have the bazooka which is of course a shoulder mounted weapon, so in-game you actually lift the Wii Remote up to your shoulder to engage the weapon," Tomporowski said of another action gesture. "When you fire it, you hear the rocket launching out of the chamber through the Wii remote speaker right next to your ear."

Up to 32 players will be able to compete online in the Wii version of Heroes 2, but no offline multiplayer will be available, allow players to "quickly and easily jump in and out of the online action anytime, default game preferences, but more experienced gamers will also have options for number of players per map, usable weapons and more, support of the Wii Zapper peripheral to both single and multi-player campaign. Heroes 2 will utilize EA's online service rather than Nintendo's Friend Code system, no voice chat but rather "quick chats" that "can quickly send important, audible, tactical messages to other members of your team in team based games."

Expected this fall.
Full interview here

-------------------
Now onto Super Smash Bros. Brawl!

There's a new Stickers system, Yes the kinds that you put on your notebook or skateboard, that you'll be able to collect throughout the game. With stickers, you'll have an easier chance of gaining your trophies.


Princess Peach is back in Brawl.


Link's Special Attacks: his moves from the previous Smash Bros' are present in Brawl, now updated to Gale Boomerang which sends enemies hovering off the ground for a bit, his Hero's Bow+arrow, Bombs, and charge-up sword Spin Attack. All that, and Clawshot which'll be used to perform life-saving tether recovery by aiming at available ledges.

Samus will be able to perform tether recovery also with her whip.

www.smashbros.com

-----------------------
I guess that's all the writing for today, I gotta get going.

See you guys next week when Metroid Prime 3 hits shelves! \:D/

• Wii News & Updates 2007.09.04

Hey all, sorry for late post, had a busy weekend and awesome Labor Day yesterday.

Yesterday's new releases of classic games for Virtual Console are:


Donkey Kong Jr. Math
NES
1-2 players
rated E for Everyone
500 Wii Points
Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donkey_Kong_Jr_Math

----------------

There's a pre-order available for Guitar Hero III Bundles.
The Extreme Bundle will come with keychain, gig bag, and strap while the Elite Bundle comes with all those 3 items plus custom faceplate, and GH3 T-shirt.

Guitar Hero III Official Store for Wii

Guitar Hero III for the Wii will be the "unique" one of the bunch as it’s the only version that requires players to plug in a Wii remote before they can start rocking out.
With a pricetag of $89.99, the release date is set for October 29th of this year.
Features: 16:9 Support, 480p Support, Online, Force Feedback
Actually, the Wii Remote+Guitar combo adds a couple of features that won't be in the other versions of Guitar Hero. First: Rumble; The Wii version will be the only Guitar Hero game that will feature force-feedback thanks to the rumble in the controller. Second: Wii Remote's Speaker; which is used for the game's "squelch" when you miss a note. Hearing it come from your guitar makes two player co-op and two player competition a bit more fun since you can easily tell which player's the one that's screwing up the notes.

Read more on IGN's Hands-on review

----------------
If you guys didn't know, Speed Racer is being brought back to life in a live-action motion picture for 2008. The game has been announced for Wii, DS, and PS2 and will be based upon the movie itself.

Read more @ GamePress

----------------
Also, For the RPGers out there, I'd like to mention a new Fire Emblem title for Wii. It'll be called Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn which takes place three years after the events of the GameCube's title Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance.

Newly added to the North American version will be widescreen support. A "Battle Save" function, new to the Fire Emblem series, will allow players to create a permanent save in mid-battle. Radiant Dawn can be played with the Wii Remote by itself (held vertically or horizontally), as well as with the GameCube and Classic controllers.
It's expected to be released in America this fall on November 5th.

Smash Bros. DOJO! reveals Mario's special Down move ability to use the F.L.U.D.D. water pack (as in Super Mario Sunshine [for GameCube]) to pump water and send players off a great distance. It's also chargeable while shielding and best used in critical moments in battle. His previous Down move, Mario Tornado (spinning arms), is still present in Brawl but may be a normal move now.

The new version of the Pokemon Stadium stage will featured guest Pokemon in the background as the stages shifts. The stage will shift to different terrains such as Electric, Fire, Wind, and Ice.


There's a new feature called My Music, located within the Options, which will give players the ability to choose music, and the probability of the song playing, in each stage. The songs range from previous Mario and Zelda games, for example, even "The Dark World" theme from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past [SNES]. To collect these songs, players will find CDs appearing on the stage and they will be added to the My Music roster for future selection. No word on how many songs there will be yet.


Today reveals a new assist trophy which is Muchlax, a pre-evolved form of Snorlax (from Pokemon). Muchlax will appear and will eat up nearby items whether it be a Fireflower, Raygun, Bumper, etc. So if he appears, be quick on grabbing your items before they.. disappear.. \:D/

More details @ the Official Super Smash Bros. Brawl website: Smash Bros. DOJO!
The game's due out on December 3rd at the end of this year in America.

-------------------
Tom Morello, lead guitarist of the bands Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave, will appear in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, according to a press release from Activision. Morello joins Slash of Guns 'n' Roses and Velvet Revolver, and Bret Michaels of Poison and The Bret Michaels Band, as boss characters in Legends of Rock. Players will perform "Bulls on Parade" alongside Morello once he is defeated.

Guitar Hero III is due out on October 28th, 2007. We'll be rockin' on out just in time for Halloween. Pre-order details in previous Wii News & Updates post.

• Wii News & Updates 2007.09.17

More on Link's Crossbow Training and Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 below:
The Official Nintendo Magazine (of Europe) announced either a 16-player for Mario Kart [Wii], but that was just of the writer's imagination. I read that Reggie said 12-player during E3 '07 interview months back. Mostly would be an upgraded Mario Kart DS, with new courses as well as classic courses, new characters, new items, Online Battle Mode, etc.

Set to be release on November 19th with a price tag of just $19.99, can't be too bad to pass on.

In celebration of its 10th anniversary, Winamp will now support streaming music and video to Wii. New version 5.5 Beta is available for download at source link.

Source

There have been a few homebrew relating to Winamp such as the ability to use a DS as a control to control Winamp or streaming music to DS.

-------------------


At last, I'd like to announce something very interesting for homebrew users. A new VoIP application has been released for the Nintendo DS called SvSIP. Utilizing three functions of the NDS: Microphone, Sound, and Wi-Fi (and 4th for Touch-Screen if you must), makes it possible for this wonderful piece of homebrew software.

• Wii News & Updates 2007.09.24

Yeah, some big announcements the past week. I should've dropped them off here once they arrived.
This week alone is one memorable week in gaming history for not only the radical change in the industry but the release of one of most notable games that is Halo 3. LOL, it is video game related so it's worth a mention!

New releases added to the Wii Shop's Virtual Console today:


Kirby's Avalanche
SNES
1-2 players
800 Wii Points
Rated E for Everyone
Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirby%27s_Avalanche

[img]http://www.coolrom.com/screenshots/genesis/Streets%20of%20Rage%203%20(2).gif[/img]
Streets of Rage 3
Sega Genesis
1-2 players
800 Wii Points
Rated E for Everyone 10+ with Violence
Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streets_of_Rage_3


Legend of Hero Tonma
TurboGrafx16
Rated E for Everyone with Mild Cartoon Violence
600 Wii Points
Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legend_Of_Hero_Tonma

----------------
It's great to see Wii an international success. Here we'll take a took at how it's doing in South Korea (where MMORPG is grandmother of gaming). The DS has only been released for a little over a year and it's been doing very well. Nintendo wants to bring its games to the masses. With the popularity of Nintendo DS in South Korea, it shouldn't be long until Wii arrives and conquers over. Read more about the state of Wii and DS:
Source

By the way, the new colors: Glossy Silver and Metallic Rose are released in that area of the Asian region. I've been dreaming of that Glossy Silver since the announcement of the DS Lite.

----------------
X-OOM Software, part of bhv Software, a leading publisher of digital media software for media devices, will be releasing its X-OOM Media Centre for Wii in late October 2007. This ground breaking product turns your Nintendo Wii into a fully functional media centre, accessing all digital media on a PC via the Wii’s built-in Wi-Fi capability, allowing users to access their music, view photos and watch films on their Nintendo Wii. What sets this one different from the others is it provides access to more than 1000 TV channels and radio stations and supports MP3, WMA, OGG, DivX, XviD, MPEG 2, MPEG 4, WMV, JPG, BMP.
Source

I don't know if Orb can already do that. But it wouldn't hurt to try it out and see, even though I already have an external Media Player w/ DVD by D-Link (DSM-320RD).

----------------

Paint by DS producer, Jason Harman, realizes that there is an opportunity on the Wii, and he may not let it slide by. While we are waiting on the DS version to head our way, Mr. Harman is thinking Wii. He even has some ideas about what could be included. "The Wii version could include other painting media such as a spray paint can and a roller."

YouTube video of the DS game in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGbsqYdWSrQ

I wouldn't mind trying it out first on the DS since I'm an artist myself.
Unfortunately, I think Paint by DS is hitting Europe and Japan right now. I'll have to wait for it to arrive in the US.
Japanese website: http://nurie.ertain.com/

Speaking of DS, here're some new trailers and footage:

Tokyo Game Show (TGS) was a major success this year, and who is gaining more success than Wii. Even though Nintendo wasn't at the show, there were Wii and DS games all over the place. Really, this show was all about the Wii, as any third party with a Wii game was eager to show it off. Maybe Nintendo will be urged to appear at TGS2008, who knows. Read a Wired report on the state of TGS, and the lack of Nintendo company presence:

The Wii version, in development by Krome Studios, will also feature an exclusive duel mode in which players can compete head-to-head with their friends. No word on there being an online mode.

"Wii is a great platform for The Force Unleashed, because the console's motion-oriented controllers really bring the game to life", said Jim Ward, President of LucasArts. "We’ve worked hard to make the Wii version of the game unique in order to truly let you unleash the Force."

• Wii News & Updates 2007.09.24

Now for updates on upcoming, Super Smash Bros. Brawl.


Piplup (from Pokemon Diamond + Pearl) makes an appearance in Brawl, and uses its Surf move to wash players away.


Snake (from Metal Gear Solid) makes a miraculous debut in Brawl. His special moves are Hand Grenade, Remote Missle, and his up special move is Cypher where he glides on his parachute. And the music for Snake will be the Metal Gear Solid: MGS4 Love Theme (Smash Bros. Brawl Version).


Trophies are back in Brawl. What are trophies? These are solid objects that appear as prizes and offer explanations of characters! You can check out the poses and learn the background of a variety of characters.

Finally, the huge announcement us fans have been waiting for. Wi-Fi Play is now included as one of the game modes.

We'll be able to play with Friends (requires Friend Code) or with Random online players. Distance with players may affect gameplay (ie. Japan vs. America would cause major lag). Playing With Friends enables you to add your Friends' names, check their status, change icons, and send short preset messages. With Anyone, it's simple quick battle; no information is seen from other players nor messages, instead names are replaced with P1, P2, P3, P4.

And while waiting for matches to load, you can practice punching a sandbag:


The producer, Masahiro Sakurai, is planning a number of services to further use the Wi-Fi (WiiConnect24).

• Wii News & Updates 2007.10.01

Today's new releases on the Wii Shop's Virtual Console includes a couple of never-before seen in North America, previously only in Japan.


Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels (aka the original Japanese Super Mario Bros. 2 from 1986)
NES
1 player
rated E for Everyone
600 Wii Points
Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Mario_B...The_Lost_Levels


Sin & Punishment (aka Tsumi to Batsu: Hoshi no Keishousha from 2000)
Nintendo 64
1-2 players
rated T for Teen - Blood, Fantasy Violence, Mild Language
1,200 Wii Points
Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sin_%26_Punishment

Europe and Australia regions saw these in PAL format during their Hanabi Festival.

--------------

Tecmo has announced that the next installment of its Fatal Frame horror series, Fatal Frame 4, is in development for the Wii. The earlier games didn't sell that well, but have amassed a sizable cult following. Now, with the burgeoning Wii phenomenon upon us, Tecmo has seen a way to give its underexposed franchise a second chance. You can certainly see where Tecmo is coming from, as snapping photos of ghosts is a staple game mechanic of the series, one that seems like a perfect fit for the Wii’s motion controls.

Interestingly, Tecmo has enlisted Grasshopper Manufacture to produce the game; Grasshopper is the studio behind Killer 7 and next year's sure-to-be-bizarre Wii actioner, No More Heroes. Tecmo has remained silent on the subject of release dates, but for now just add Fatal Frame to the growing list of promising third-party Wii games.

Where's my Pokemon Snap 2?

--------------

Sega has just released some new screens of, upcoming Wii and DS title, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, which shows for the first time, the whole roster of characters that'll be taking to the track when the game comes to shelves in November.

Also on display are the four different character types, Speed, Skill, Power and All-Around.

There will be a wide range of events on offer, each requiring a different range of skills and attributes, which should ensure the race to become Olympic Champion is always a good one.

SEGA also announced the exclusive development of SEGA Bass Fishing for Wii. This will be the third installment in this series of fishing games. It first debuted in arcades and on the SEGA Dreamcast, featuring compatibility with both the Dreamcast controller and SEGA Fishing Controller. Bass Fishing eventually became one of the 17 Dreamcast games sold under the "SEGA All Stars" budget label in North America. This new version will utilize the Wiimote + Nunchuk featuring Arcade, Tournament, Practice and Nature Trip modes taking place within 15 lake environments. Players will also have the option of changing the time of day and season, which will impact the activity of the fish, their appetite, and their depth. Does this mean the Weather Channel will take part in the action as in Madden 08?
