I still hate Nintendo's strategy to do things like this but it's not like they're going to change it so it's nice to know what happens when it does I guess.

I will hype myself up to unreasonable levels and speculate feverishly for ten pages about the inevitable Kid Zeldatroid Pikmin Bros. announcement. Also, FFVII:R, because I'm crazy like that.

Well, the good part (?) about this at least, is that Wii Music is not scheduled in their ultra high-profile Nov/Dec slot for the year-end sales war, so they must have something else planned for that. Probably more than just Animal Crossing too.

I get the feeling that Wii Music's Wi-Fi compatibility is just the ability to send music videos back and forth, as announced at E3. Or would that fall under the category of WiiConnect24 support?

This is Japan, where more than 75% of the population has straps attached to their phones.

Fixed. I think Nintendo is content to let 3rd parties gather some cash the rest of this year.

WTF Nintendo. There are more news today then the entire E3 combined.

So, Captain Rainbow already finished? Who's developing it?

An interesting advantage is that this genre of attitude can potentially generate big
surprises...

Know what would be awesome? If a glistening rainbow came out of the wiimote everytime you swung it.

The branding encompasses more than the DS now and it refers to all games released on both the Wii and the DS that appeal to a much wider audience than the traditional gamer.

There's already been 5 Wii titles that have been branded as part of the Touch! Generations.

White, Pink, Blue, Green straps. That's not enough.

I want all seven colors of the rainbow Wii Remote Straps. I will strap all of them in my Wiimote. Everytime I waggle there will be a rainbow.

I think they've been releasing weekly trailers on the Nintendo Channel and will probably continue to do so. Sure, the game will still bomb, but instead of doing absolutely nothing, they have at least been doing next to nothing.
