Mario Tennis sticks out, I think. The other games are part of a series, or at least in DKJB's case have some simple story element to them. Mario Tennis is one of the many "Mario does something" titles that's released in some new form nearly every generation. That they're just doing a half-baked upgrade of it rather than releasing a fully Wii version seems weird.Shikamaru Ninja said:http://www.famitsu.com/game/news/1218549_1124.html
This link mentions Nintendo (with some screens) redoing Metroid Prime 1, Metroid Prime 2, Pikmin 1, Pikmin 2, Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, and Mario Tennis for Wii. 16 9 and Wii mote looks like.

the enthusiast press does not care about nintendo.. they just point at them and laugh their asses off..
well i guess there was no one in Japan covering this and updating live blogs at all..Stumpokapow said:err okay but in the meantime back in the real world that really has nothing to do with why both the liveblogs were generally poor in quality and why the translations of the liveblogs were so scattershot.

I liked Super Little Mac.JoshuaJSlone said:I'm glad Punch-Out!! is using NES Mac rather than the William H. Macy-ish guy they put in Fight Night.

Another Code: R Kioku no Tobira (R The Door of Memories)
Anybody remember how many years have passed after?the end of Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and the beginning of Trace Memory
Superblatt said:Wow, talk about a disappointing remainder of 2008. Yawn.
Spiegel said:No 1080/Fzero/Wave Race
No "new" interesting Wii games internally developed
I was expecting a little more from the only hardcore-oriented conference that Nintendo has each year.
tabsina said:aren't they completely different IPs?
Mockingbird said:They're by the same developer, and the world ofis set in the same world as that ofHotel Dusk's. This is affirmed by looking at the picture of Rosa's husband, who is actually theTrace Memory.Captain from Trace Memory
Stumpokapow said:Were you expecting a Wave Race when they're already releasing a jet ski game Q1 of next year?
Who cares if they're internally developed? People are picky if internal teams work on existing IP. People are picky if EXTERNAL teams are allowed to work on IP. People are picky if external teams bring new IP.
I mean, does it disappoint you that Sony's big Christmas title is White Knight Chronicles, or that Microsoft's is Gears? I can see why you might be disappointed that an individual team did not reveal their new project, but other than Retro and NST I'm not sure which team you expected to have a late-production-cycle Wii game.
Where on earth did you get the impression the conference was hardcore oriented? It's not anything oriented. It's "announce the shit we have to announce" oriented.

Seems definitely inspired by WarioWare. But more precisely, what's the concept of the game ? Looks like you make your own minigames, or something. Definitely intriguing. I'll look out for more infos.
