News: Nintendo's release calendar for Spring and early Summer. But where's Wii Sports Resort?



While Wii game and console sales went through the roof in 2008, Nintendo has no plans of slowing down in 2009 as they unveiled the full Spring/early Summer release calendar for the Wii (and the DS) today. Nintendo and a variety of third party publishers will release over 120 games between the two systems, including a few that are just being announced now.

Like Excitebots: Trick Racing, which is coming to the Wii on April 20. It is a spiritual successor to the underrated Excite Truck and the classic Excitebike. Little was revealed so far, but like Excite Truck, it will make use of the Wii Wheel and feature a variety of minigames.

Nintendo has also dated Little Mac's return to video gaming as the company confirmed Punch-Out!! will be released on the Wii on May 18.



Actually though, what was most interesting about the release calendar was the absence of a game: Wii Sports Resort. Previously set for the Spring, it seems likely that gamers will have to wait until the Fall to play the followup to the bestselling video game of all time. Although Nintendo did say this calendar was only a partial list, giving them wiggle room to sneak Wii Sports Resort in before the end of the Summer.

But you can see the full release calendar below.

Nintendo also detailed a few upcoming WiiWare titles:

  • Bit.Trip Beat, developed by Gaijin Games and published by Aksys Games: Bit.Trip Beat is what you get when you mix classic video gaming with modern gaming sensibilities. What may seem like a simple "paddle" game turns into a psychedelic trip down memory lane which has you hitting "beats" in rhythm to Chiptune style music. While the game can be difficult, if you crank up the tunes and get in the zone, you'll have a great time. Performing perfectly isn't required to experience all the game's content, but the extra challenge will keep score-hunters coming back in search of each level's elusive Perfect score.

  • Eduardo the Samurai Toaster, developed and published by Semnat Studios LLC: Fight your way through 13 diverse locations on your own or with up to three friends in this frenetic and stylish side-scrolling action game. Play as Eduardo and his fellow toaster buddies as you fire an assortment of pastries at all kinds of dastardly food products. Hop onto laser-mounted scooters and fly across the screen in rocket packs, and learn to cooperate with your teammates or simply annoy each other in an awesomely fun way by throwing each other around the screen. The choice is up to you.



  • Night Game, developed and published by Nicalis: Exclusively for WiiWare, Night Game (working title) is part action game and part puzzler. It invites players into a beautifully atmospheric world, where they must use real physics to maneuver a mysterious, glowing sphere through vastly different locales. Night Game pushes the boundaries of design with its unique art style, and professionally produced music score. This title is a 2009 Independent Games Festival Seumas McNally Award nominee and from the same developers responsible for Cave Story on Wii.

  • Swords & Soldiers, developed and published by Ronimo Games: Swords & Soldiers is a side-scrolling real-time strategy game, in which three distinct factions battle for the powers of the gods. The goal is to destroy the enemies' castle on the other end of the level, while protecting your own. This can be done by training powerful units or casting devastating spells. The game will feature a single-player campaign and a competitive split-screen multiplayer mode as well as several other game modes.
