Nintendo believes next week's release of Capcom's Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition will be just the start of a highly successful run to to Christmas for the Wii manufacturer.
The firm has confirmed release dates for a series of titles, including Wii game Mario Party 8 on July 13, followed by the highly anticipated Trauma Centre: Second Opinion August 10 and a new Mario game for September 14 entitled Super Paper Mario, essentially a cross between a platformer and an RPG.
The firm also announced Wii titles Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles will arrive 'when the nights start to draw in'.
On DS, forthcoming games will include More Brain Training on June 29, Elite Beat Angels on July 13 and Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl on July 27. It also confirmed that oddball platformer Freshly Picked – Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland will arrive in Europe on September 14.
Its all looking great for Nintendo, not only is the console a constant sell out, but some of the releases are looking quite exciting. Im not a fan of the Resident Evil series, but its games like this that are going to push the Wii forward, as at the moment it has a slight reputation within the hardcore gaming community for focussing too much on "family orientated" games.
