Coming soon to a Wii near you


So what makes a drought? When our cohorts at Joystiq posted the following -- Nintendo's official word on the upcoming sixteen games that will round out Q1, there was some discussion regarding whether a library of 40 titles constitutes a deluge or a drought. Here's the list, per Nintendo:

  • Feb. 14 Wii Play with Wii Remote
  • Mar. 27 Disney's Meet the Robinsons
  • Mar. Bust-A-Move Bash
  • Mar. Prince of Persia Rival Swords
  • Mar. TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
  • Mar. Bionicle Heroes
  • Mar. Blazing Angels Squadrons of WWII
  • Q1 Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07
  • Q1 SSX Blur
  • Q1 The Godfather Blackhand Edition
  • Q1 Medal of Honor: Vanguard
  • Q1 Sonic and the Secret Rings
So there's the obvious question of how you feel about the way the Wii's library is shaping up, but the deeper question is ... how many games do we need? It seems most of us would rather have skinnier libraries with nothing but quality games than a new subpar sports title or FPS every week. We're not sure that every one of these titles is gonna reflect the quality we'd like to see, but it doesn't seem thin.

Last, but not at all least, you may notice that we didn't include Mario Party 8, which is apparently slated for March 5. Since it wasn't on Nintendo's list, we left it out here, but that date is still listed on Nintendo's official site.
