Wii ZAPPER

A tommy gun style shell that holds the Wiimote & Nunchuk.

-- Supported in games like Medal of Honour Wii, Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles & Ghost Squad
-- The shell w. game will retail for $19.99 (other territories unconfirmed)
-- Will ship with a game, just as Wii remotes shipped with Wii Play.




Wii WHEEL

A shell for the Wiimote for use in driving games.

Wii BALANCE BOARD

An accessory that comes packaged with Wii Fit.

-- Used in conjunction with the Wiimote in various Wii Fit minigames.










Release date:
TBA / 2008 in Europe (includes Wii Balance Board)


A new title in the "Wii..." range of software, developed by Shigeru Miyamoto and his team. Players use the Wiimote and Balance Board in various minigames and exercises.

-- Using the Wii Balance Board, lean to block soccer balls, swivel hips to power hoop twirls or balance to hold the perfect yoga pose.
-- Wii Fit also uses the Wii Balance Board for daily tests. These evaluate two key measures that a household can track via progress charts - Body Mass Index and Wii Fit Age.
-- More than 40 types of training activities in four categories: Aerobic Exercise, Muscle Conditioning, Yoga Poses and Balance Games. Stretch, hold poses, exercise vigorously then relax by ski jumping or heading balls
-- Check your progress on a new Channel on the Wii menu.







Release date:
Q1 2008 (includes Wii Wheel)


A Wii iteration of the long-running Mario Kart series.

Release date:
November 12 2007 (US) / Q4 2007 (EU)


The ultimate Nintendo hero is taking the ultimate step... into space.

Become Mario™ as he traverses a galaxy of gravities, traveling in and out of gravitational fields by blasting from planet to planet. Players experience dizzying perspective shifts as they run upside down through wild alien worlds that need to be seen to be believed.

-- New trailer shown.
-- Bee costume shown that allows Mario to buzz around environments.
-- Two player mode lets the second player deflect projectiles and ward off enemies while player one controls Mario.






Release date:
August 27 2007 (US) / 26 October 2007 (EU)


The trilogy ends... with a bang! Six months have passed since the events on the planet Aether. The Galactic Federation’s network computers, Aurora Units, are suddenly and completely corrupted with something like a virus, and only quick action saves the entire network from going down.

The Federation believes Space Pirates may be behind the problem and, beginning with Samus, starts to contact bounty hunters. As it explains the situation to the assembled hunters, the Federation is attacked by the pirates. Samus and the other hunters leap to the defense of the Federation capital, only to find that the enemy the hunters face is the presumed-dead Dark Samus.

Dark Samus defeats Samus and the other bounty hunters, corrupting them with Phazon in the process. They are all subsequently outfitted by the Galactic Federation with Phazon Enhancement Devices (PEDs) that can harness their corruption to enhance their powers. After learning to use this enhancement, called Hypermode, Samus sets off after Dark Samus, who has begun to seed other planets with Phazon by launching enormous Phazon seeds called Leviathans into them. As the Phazon begins to slowly corrupt Samus, the final saga in the Metroid Prime trilogy begins...

-- New trailer shown
-- Enter Hypermode using your PED and gain incredible power boosts
-- Lock-on Free Aiming using the Z-trigger - lock-on to a target, then target anywhere on screen.
-- New Hunters, Ghor, Rundas and Danhaydra.
-- Manipulate switches, enemies, items and puzzles using the remote.
-- Travel to multiple planets.






Release date:
December 3 2007 (US) / 2008 (EU)


-- New trailer shown.

G4 website. The live stream was pretty good. I didn't like the picture and picture stuff from the Gamespot stream... the video was small as it is.

1up and Gamesport are on par, imo. G4 had the bigger/better picture, but fading to black during the show (when there were ads on the TV version) made me switch.

If they don't reveal Wii Zelda today, then we shouldn't expect to get it before Christmas 2009. Maybe even if they do reveal it today.
