DO WANT. What sort of information are we talking about here?
I don't know yet. I just read the index of the Famitsu.

Maybe about new downloadable contents or recently started animation.

As soon as I know, I will post about it.

I'm also curious since I'm a big V.C fan.

New DLC? That would be great
New Game? Even better
Anime Info? Bleh, it is already out.

Nice: "Made in Ore," the Wario Ware game that lets you create your own Wario Ware games, and "Asobu Made in Ore," the WiiWare game that lets you play (and share?) them, is on pages 202-203.

Page 204 is the Wii versions of Chibi-Robo and Metroid Prime 2.

I wonder if these all have release dates now.

What other Wii games can you make out? Are they all ones we've heard about before?

So far we have in order:

Arc Rise Fantasia
Asobu Made in Ore
Deca Sports 2? (It kind of looks like it says EA SPORTS, Deca is mentioned in the OP, but I can't really find it).
NPC Chibi-Robo
NPC Metroid Prime 2
Kizuna
Muramasa: The Demon Blade
Tales of Graces

According to scans, End of Eternity looks like a mixture of FF13 and Lost Oddyssey

I just can't wait.
A neogaf member also mentioned the Shadow hearts series and I think it's the a very good fit. It is quite similar moodwise but it has a lot of guns ^^

I love the name for the game, at least it is a step in the right direction.

Of course, this is tri-ace we are talking about. Taking a step in the right direction normally means one step forward, three steps back.

Ni-Oh is alive :lol

I remember the game being announced in 2005.
Thought it was cancelled.
If I recall correctly the cancellation was actually announced, and all the gaming publications removed it from their "coming in the future" lists.

I can't decide whether eoe or ni-oh is the bigger surprise in this issue.

looks nice i guess. There is no way in hell this is making it out to NA or EU right ?
Dude, NISA just announced Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman for the US. There's a very good chance that Atelier will come over here especially since NISA released all three Iris games here.

Ni-oh is a surprise for me because I thought it was canned for sure. I think the project has being restarted with the help of Sony or
some other third party publisher.

Tales of Graces and Arc Rise Fantasia aren't good enough for you?

Sheesh...
They look awesome, but he's right, there should be more JRPGs than this. Especially with DQX being developed for the Wii, they say the RPGs follow DQ.
