Captain Rainbow was just revealed and is coming out next month! Oh Nintendo. :lol

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.

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?

Is this going to be one of those 20 page threads where everyone is going nuts because of some expected megaton that just doesn't happen?
The last couple of these Nintendo events have been unexpected and have delivered.

I think this is just going to recap E3 for the Japanese plus some local stuff. I'm not expecting any big announcements for another few months.

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...

How can a Wii game be part of "Touch" Generations?
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.

Way ahead of you. I'm already suffering from the crushing defeat. I'm furiously sobbing in my corner as I type this. Gonna try that self-flagellation set I bought off the internet for increased effect next.

I want that set of rainbow-colored straps. WTF have you done to me, Nintendo?

I wonder how can Nintendo expect decent sales of this game, without an appropriate release of screens and footages.
?

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.
