    Necro-Nesia



    It was first presented over at E3, it failed to get the critics' approval. Months later, it was again show in the Japanese Wii conference, and finally, it started getting attention.
    While we've already seen loads of screenshots and a couple of trailers from this manga-adaptation, this trailer pretty much encapsulates what's there to expect still from this not-so-fun camp out in the woods. With the kind of big bugs that's bound to break the night's silent reverie, this certainly gives Blair Witch a run for its money.
    The difference is, you actually have the chance to survive in this one. Unless you'd rather be immortalized in some battered video cam found in the woods.

    WarioWare Smooth Moves intro


    A bit too impatient to wait until January 15 2007? Don't worry, all you need do is run around the internet and look for vid captures of footage from the game. If you're too lazy to do even that. Then you might appreciate the video below. It's the intro to the import version of WarioWare: Smooth Moves. Remember folks: "It's a Wii, Wario!"



    Wing Island Import Intro


    Yeah, importing is necessary if you're really into weird Japanese games. Take for example Wing Island. The US release date for this game is still TBA, but it's already out in Japan, guess what a fan will do?

    Anyway, below is a video of the opening intro of the "import." In this Hudson Soft flight game, all the player has to do is play pretend-this-is-an-airplane with their Wiimote. Tilt the Wii mote horizontally to turn, vertically to go up or down, and flick the Wii controller two times to the side to do a barrel-roll.

    In this game the player lands the plane, they will get stunned temporarily, unlike other flight games, where the plane explodes if it crashes. In addition to flying a single planes, players will also have the opportunity to fly a squadron of planes in formation. A lot of the gameplay involves popping balloons, putting out fires, and dropping cargo. The game's got cutesy cartoon-y characters, and the way things are looking so far, the game should be a fun pick-up and play experience.



    Wii Pokemon Battle Revolution Japanese ad


    Reason 1 to get all giddy: we get to see some new footage of the game. Reason 2: we also get see a short sneak peek of the game's feature which allows the player to customize - not the Pokemon - but the player. Reason 3: the game will feature the legendary Pokemons from the Diamond and Pearl installments. Reason 4: included in the game are up to ten different coliseums to battle in, and some stadiums which have special effects, such as randomizing the order of your pokemons.

    And best of all (which would be Reason 5), this little ad also shows the connectivity between the DS and the Wii. Players will be able to use their Nintendo DS handhelds to play the game and battle it out on a bigger screen. This little fact makes this Pokemon Battle Revolution the first game which will heavily use the link-up between the two Nintendo machines.

    Pokemon Battle Revolution is set to be released in Japan on December 14, while the release dates for North America, Europe, and Australia are yet to be announced.
