Bubble Bobble, Rainbow Islands, and tons more Japanese WiiWare announced

We're still finding new information to come out of Nintendo's fall conferences, both in the US and Japan. Those things were rich with info. We basically completely missed the WiiWare announcements, which are every bit as epic and exciting -- and numerous -- as the retail games.

At the top of the list (actually the middle of the list in terms of organization but right up at the top in terms of interest): Bubble Bobble Wii and Rainbow Island Tower! If these are actually developed by Taito instead of the third parties responsible for the DS games, it is time for celebration!

Other interesting games on the list include:
  • a revival of Tecmo's Tsuppari Oozumo sumo series!
  • A game from NIS called Let's Hitchhike, which ... couldn't possibly be a strategy RPG. Right?
  • Three new Okiraku games, following the great Okiraku Ping-Pong
  • A drum-based followup to Aero Guitar
The rest, we either don't know anything about, or don't know enough to talk about in detail. Or, is Major League Eating. We'll look into it all as information becomes available. There's ... kind of a long list of games after the break.
