Info, videos and demos all for the taking.
Unless the dust has settled so thick you can't even see it now, you probably woke up to find your Wii once again flashing that blue light, indicating you have a new message. Thankfully this isn't some new contest for Check Mii Out or another Mario Kart Wii friend invite, but rather an unexpected, but oh-so-welcome surprise from Nintendo: a new Wii Channel is now available to download!
If our latest feature has you drooling for some of those upcoming WiiWare games, then the Nintendo Channel might be just the thing to help you pass the time until this Monday. A sort of in-depth catalog of both first- and third-party Nintendo Wii and DS games, this new channel (which is already available in Japan) allows you read product descriptions, watch some videos and even order new and upcoming games. However, the best feature may be the DS-to-Wii connectivity.
Working similar to the DS Download Stations you can find in select stores, the Nintendo Channel allows you to download demos from your Wii to your Nintendo DS. Right now, the pickings are somewhat slim – though you can find some for games like Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword and the recently released Crosswords DS – but, as always, we'll continue to watch this story and keep you up to date of any news. If we learn anything more, you'll see it right here, so be sure to check back at VGGEN often!
