Nintendo Details Wii Q1 2007 Game Lineup

WiiQ107.jpgFollowing up on the Wii’s successful holiday launch window run, Nintendo is ready to continue that run into 2007, and today they have laid out the scheduled Wii lineup for this year’s first quarter. 12 new Wii titles (in addition to the recently released WarioWare: Smooth Moves) are currently on track to release within 2007’s first three months, including Nintendo’s own Wii Play (February 14th), Disney’s Meet the Robinsons from Buena Vista (March 27th), Bust-A-Move Bash from Majesco (March), Bionicle Heroes from Eidos (March), Prince of Persia Rival Swords, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Blazing Angels Squadrons of WWII from Ubisoft (all March), Sonic and the Secret Rings from Sega (TBA Q1), and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07, SSX Blur, The Godfather Blackhand Edition and Medal of Honor Vanguard from EA (all TBA Q1 releases). That seems like a fair early year lineup, although only a few really stand out.

Along with the all-new Wii titles that are on the way, Nintendo has also revealed some other interesting Wii tidbits. For starters, next week’s virtual console Monday release will be none other than Mario Kart 64, which will make for two great Wii Shop Channel updates in a row. And finally, the Wii’s News Channel is set to go live with global coverage from the Associated Press this weekend on January 27th.
