We here at Wii Fanboy would like to welcome yet another new blogger to the ranks: James Konik! James is joining us from the faraway land of Japan, and we hope to abuse his linguistic abilities round out our global coverage with a man on the ground in the land of gaming heaven. By way of greeting, he had this to say:

"I'm originally from sunny England, I like most games, particularly adventure games with pirates in, and I hope to flip the lid on new and unexpected areas of the Nintendo fanboy world."

Sunny England and pirates, eh? Well, at least he has a sense of humor. Please make him welcome, and give the poor guy a few days to adjust! And forgive us this interruption -- we'll get back to the news directly.
