200°
253w ago - Dozens of games for the Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi systems are on the way in a wide range of categories from both Nintendo and its third-party partners.

Consumers nationwide continue to snap up Nintendo products for the holidays, and Nintendo is poised to carry that momentum into 2010.

Press Release: Hand-Held Pokémon Adventures and New Wii Remote Colors are on the Way

REDMOND, Wash., Dec. 14, 2009 - To bring a little color to the winter months, Nintendo will release two new colors for its Wii Remote™ controller. Starting Feb. 14, the controller will come in Pink or Blue and will be bundled with a Wii MotionPlus™ accessory. Along with the current White and Black versions of the controller, now every player in four-player matches can have his or her own color.

"During the holidays, tens of millions of Americans are going to spend enjoyable hours with both Wii and Nintendo DS," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "And the enjoyment will only grow in the early weeks of 2010, whether your taste in gaming comes from exploring ocean depths, catching, training and battling Pokémon or even designing your own micro-games."

On the Wii console, Endless Ocean™: Blue World arrives on Feb. 22...
 

Nintendo: Twilight Princess is 'Starting Point' for New Zelda on Wii

200°
254w ago - Today, following an interview with director Eiji Aonuma, IGN (linked above) is reporting some new details on the next Zelda game for the Nintendo Wii.

To quote: "Since then, the publisher has dropped a few more details, first confirming that Link's swordplay would be enhanced by Wii MotionPlus and also revealing that it plans to alter the traditional "flow" of the series.

Dev: With Twilight Princess, we challenged ourself to create the most vast and realistic world the series had ever seen, but we don't feel that we were able to fully complete this objective. With that as a starting point for our improvements to the series in the future, we are of course working on a new game for Wii.

Might the forthcoming Zelda title, which is purportedly set to be unveiled at next year's E3, be the Wii equivalent of Majora's Mask?

Dev: For any game to be remembered for a long time, just like Ocarina of Time was, the game must give the strong impression that it has set a new starting point for future sequels to build upon. We are working to further improve upon the experiences found in Twilight Princess so that our future games can realize these innovations."
 

Video: New Super Mario Bros. Unpatched on Nintendo Wii Wode

100°
255w ago - This weekend wodedev has shared a new video showcasing the New Super Mario Bros. running unpatched on the Nintendo Wii via Wode.

To quote: Back to back testing of NSMB from a DVD backup (4.7GB ISO) and a WBFS formatted SD card (350MB). The ISO used in both Wodes is unpatched, the BCA data fix is handled by Wode.

Slipping into December is disappointing but Wode hardware has to be perfect before we will let it ship. Some missing tracks meant a PCB respin & we took the opportunity to improve connector placement.

By way of compensation there's a new video of two Wodes playing NSMB back to back. These are pre-production Wodes & have a couple of wire fixes on the main board

The Wode on the right is in "Flat Mode" & NSMB is running from a back up disk. ISO size 4.7GB. The Wode on the left is running NSMB from an SD card formatted with WBFS. WBFS image size 350MB.

No ISO was patched during the making of this movie
