No new Wii games debuted last week; at least, none that ended up in the top thirty. There was one teensy weensy title that was introduced into the Japanese market, though. You may have heard of it: Guitar Hero III. To put it bluntly, sales for the game were low. In fact, it didn't even make the top...

The new kid on the Japanese Wii software block last week was Battalion Wars 2, which faired well enough in its debut to hit the top ten. Will it stay there? Our guess is no, sadly. Still, it's nice to see the game get some recognition in Japan. Once again, the only non-Nintendo title for the Wii tha...

Ah, remember Link's Crossbow Training? The game that was bundled with the Wii Zapper last November (December, for PALs)? It was only released in Japan last week. If sales are any indication, though, Japanese gamers were clamoring for the goron-junk shooter rail shooter, as it claimed the third pla...

Mario Kart Wii continues to top the charts in Japan, but a lot of movement happened with the Wii's other software. Because a bunch of new games came out last week, Wii Sports, Deca Sports, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl were all knocked out of the top ten. We know that Wii Sports will return to top ten...

The Wii had a good week in Japan, as far as sales are concerned. With Mario Kart Wii continuing to champion the cause, the little white console almost nabbed second place in hardware: PSP: 85,421 Nintendo DS: 44,551 Wii: 44,241 PlayStation 3: 7,438 PlayStation 2: 6,545 Xbox 360: 1...

Yes, you read that correctly, a whole 25 minutes of fresh footage from Hudson's upcoming Deca Sports. And, you know what? It looks good. Seriously, we haven't been this excited for badminton in our entire life. In the video, you can also check out some curling, snowboarding and even archery. H...

Actually, it's two spots for Deca Sporta (Deca Sports for everyone else), fresh from Japan. As with most Japanese ads, there is quite the amount of shouting. But, that's okay, because we get to check out some gameplay. We can't be the only one impressed with the amount of different sports in this g...

Some fresh, albeit kind of small, screens for Hudson's upcoming take on the whole Wii Sports thing, Deca Sports, have hit the net. And, we're hoping this game manages to be as fun as Wii Sports, because the overall package looks to have nothing but "win" written all over it. There's a ton of sport...

Upon hearing that Hudson's Deca Sporta would be coming to North America (and Europe)minus one a and plus one s, we were excited for a possible successor to the Wii Sports crown. We still have some time before we find out how good it is, but we're glad to report some new screens are up for your vie...

Hudson's decathlon-themed, Adidastic minigame collection, Deca Sporta, was recently announced for Europe with the totally personality-free title of Sports Island. We were surprised, then, and pleased to hear that (most of) the original title will be used for the American release of the game, Deca ...

Deca Sporta's site has updated with a new trailer featuring footage of all deca ten of its sportas. We're pretty excited about some more sports on the Wii, and Hudson has had experience designing small games for Nintendo systems. We think that if this game is any good at all, it could be more Wii ...

Deca Sporta might have been a fairly neutral title for a sports game, basically conveying nothing but the fact that there are ten sports in the game, but it makes the game sound action-packed compared to the name that Hudson is using for Europe: Sports Island. If this is the name that came out of ...

Hudson's Wii Sports clone (or wannabe sequel, depending on how you look at it) Deca Sporta will be making its way to North America. If compilations of 10 different sports minigames is your sort of thing, then Hudson's title might be right up your alley. Based on what we've seen, the plethora of mi...
