Maybe early this week? Syoboonline has an unusual source, but one he trusts enough to post on, and since he has to keep a reputation, it seems at least trustable enough to discuss; it's not as proven-reliable as Imas's posts that I usually work from, but has the seal of approval from one of the about three big-name amateur blogs.

NEWS
New Wii colors launching packin with Smash Brothers on 1/24.
* Price: \35000
* Red, Diamond Black, Mint Blue, Snow Pink, Famicom colors (limited edition set)
* Packed with twoo remotes, two nunchucks.

Super Mario Kart Wii
* 2/28, for \5800
* Up to 8-player multiplay
* Bikes, animals also ridable

Legend of Zelda: Link's Crossbow Training (** The Japanese for "Adventure" is read 'Daibouken'; the Japanese title for this game replaces that "bou" with the English word "bow", thus both referencing Zelda 2 and making a truly horrible pun.)
* Releases 2/7 for \3800
* Packed with Wii Zapper

Star Ocean 4: First Departure (PS3, X360) 2008
* Logo, etc. shown.
* SF3-like release schedule; first volume in a set of 3
* 4 pages of logo and character illustrations.
* Volume 2 is "Second Evolution". Volume 3 is "'Til The End Of Time".
* More info first issue of 2008

Also, more info on DMC4, Soul Calibur 4, Guitar Hero 3, Ys Origin (PSP), Bomberman (PS3 PSN), and an interview with Nomura.

All the news stuff makes it hard to believe (new Wii colors, and actual good colors? Nobody ever makes red consoles! Animals in Mario Kart? Star Ocean on 360?), but I want to believe, especially because this:

So is SO4 a three volume game with each volume being named after one of the earlier ones? Or Remakes (which wouldn't make any sense because of the PSP ones)

Honestly that looks like the average score of a simple2000 game.

wasnt there supposed to be some final fantasy info in this issue? What does nomura say?

Nice that another rpg is dropping, though Ive never really bothered with the series, might pick up the psp game though...

High score for GT prologue, would like to play it, but the cost is a bit high in this circumstance...GT5 is day 1

I can't wait to see what those new Wii colors look like if this is true. It's a very smart move by Nintendo... releasing it with Super Smash Bros. Brawl in Japan. With the holiday season and this, Wii sales should be ramping up a lot.
