Nintendo has today launched the WiiWare, a new game download service where users can download a variety of new games in exchange for Wii Points.


Nintendo says that whereas Virtual Console allows consumers to download classic games, WiiWare offers brand new titles, and is also an opportunity for video game developers to create new games for Wii.

Developers, no matter how big or small, will be able to create new downloadable games to be sold through the Wii Shop Channel. Changing the way developers create Wii games and how players access them, WiiWare will make it possible for smaller, creative titles to take centre stage. The combination of low development barriers and unique game experiences, through use of the Wii remote, will enable developers to try new ideas with lower risk in a quicker, more creative and affordable way, says Nintendo.

WiiWare games will come from celebrated developers such as Square Enix, creators of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King; as well as up and coming developers such as Frontier, creators of the unique platform adventure Lost Winds, and other independent developers with great game ideas.

 

WiiWare games scheduled to be released for launch week include: Lost Winds, Star Soldier R, Dr. Mario and Germ Buster, Toki Tori Take 2, TV Show King, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King.

WiiWare also empowers consumers to determine with their Wii Points which games have the ability to become the next big thing. Consumers will assist in the creative process as their choices will directly determine the success of current projects and direct the plans for future ones.

There will be something for everyone on WiiWare with a wide range of games from varying genres, concepts and price levels.

A broadband internet connection is required to access WiiWare.
