Nintendo announces some Megatons

Nintendo 2

DeanCubed writes "Nintendo has just made some major announcements this morning!

First of all, Sonic the Hedgehog is now in Smash Bros. In addition, they have unveiled the WiiWare service which allows Wii owners to purchase and download original games from various developers. Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles and an online multiplayer Dr. Mario headline the launch of the service.

Two new Channels have also been announced — one to compare and vote on Mii creations, and a demo/minigame download channel for the DS. Next, motorbikes have been added to Mario Kart.

Mario Baseball for Wii was announced.

The latest firmware update has enabled full USB keyboard support for the Wii, and Logitech has announced a Wii keyboard. Finally, one of the huge upcoming blockbusters in Japan, Monster Hunter 3 from Capcom, has been changed from PS3 exclusive to now appearing on Wii.

Sorry! (1)

Just want to say sorry for the lack of article quotations and single links for every news article. I got lazy, and excited, which is always a strange combination.

Huh? (1)

First of all, so far Wii Ware is exclusive to Japan. Second, the USB keyboard update was present in the *previous* firmware update as well. I remember testing it.
