Nintendo outlines Q2 Release Dates for US

by Daniel VuckovicMarch 7, 2007

Today during the Game Developers’ Conference, Nintendo has issued a press release listing all the games (well, most of them) coming to the Wii, Nintendo DS and even the Gameboy Advance. Metroid Prime 3 is a notable absence, however the list does feature the first online Wii title in the West. That game, of course, is Pokemon Battle Revolution. The game is also the first Wii title to link up to the Nintendo DS.

With concrete dates set for US games, we would hope to see more dates for the below titles from Nintendo Australia soon,

Full Release List and PR inside REDMOND, Wash., March 7, 2007 Wii owners of all ages have discovered the fun of playing with a group of friends in the same room. Now for the first time players can compete with one another near and far with Pokmon Battle Revolution, a game of remarkable firsts:

* the first Wii game to include Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection play
* the first Pokmon game for Wii
* the first game to link Wii and the hand-held Nintendo DS
* and the first Wii game that can be controlled using Nintendo DS

When Wii and Nintendo DS are linked, players can use their Nintendo DS units as controllers or import characters from the upcoming Nintendo DS games Pokmon Diamond Version or Pokmon Pearl Version. Pokmon Battle Revolution launches on June 25 exclusively for Wii and brings a dramatic new chapter to the Pokmon franchise, which has sold more than 155 million units worldwide. Pokmon Battle Revolution also serves as one of the standouts in Nintendos second-quarter launch lineup, which the company revealed today in conjunction with the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

Pokmon Battle Revolution will be joined by Super Paper Mario, the first Mario game for Wii; Mario Party 8, a multiplayer party game; and Big Brain Academy, a brain-training game that builds on the phenomenal success of the Nintendo DS brain games. These will add to the ever-growing library of Wii games, which will total more than 50 by the end of June. Nintendo DS fans will see the arrival of Pokmon Diamond Version and Pokmon Pearl Version, two surefire smash-hits.

With strong third-party support, Wii and Nintendo DS have games on the way for both casual and veteran gamers, says Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. Our new ways to play have attracted millions of players around the world. This lineup demonstrates our commitment to leading the industry with the future of video gaming.
