Punch-Out franchise to return as well

Nintendo held a major press conference on Thursday at 1:30PM Tokyo time announcing new products such as the Nintendo DSi. As Nintendo has chosen to not attend this year’s Tokyo Game Show, several other major announcements were made during this press conference. One of those announcements was the ability to play games from SD memory cards. Nintendo also announced a new lineup of games as well.

As the event was a Japanese press only conference, Kotaku translated a live blog of the event from Famitsu where Nintendo's Satoru Iwata announced the fix for the Nintendo Wii's inability to play games from external memory storage. According to Iwata, Nintendo is going to make it possible to download games onto SD cards starting in Spring 2009. "We have to address the console's insufficient memory storage," said Iwata. This fix will apply only to WiiWare and Virtual Console games.

In addition to the Wii storage announcement, a number of new Wii games were announced at the press conference. The revival of the NES classic Punch-Out franchise was announced along with Another Code, Sin and Punishment 2, and Sangoku Musou 3 (Dynasty Warriors). It was also announced that Gamecube games will be re-released for the Nintendo Wii starting with Pikmin. The service will be called "Wii de Asobu Selection" (Play on Wii Selection).

Nintendo also plans to ship a short 3 minute movie called “Wii de Dekiru Koto” (What You Can Do With The Wii). The movie will show users how to easily connect to the internet. By no coincidence, Nintendo also announced it is putting special Wi-Fi adaptors for sale on the market.

Look out, you broke the holy Daily Tech code. You can't say ANYTHING bad about certain things here it seems, lest ye be attacked by the rabid fans.

Don't say anything bad about Windows, even if it is a problem, because it isn't a problem if 5 people don't have the problem on the internet. Oddly enough though, you can say things about the RROD and other problems with the 360, and that is fine, go figure.

Don't say anything bad about Nintendo apparently, because they are a magic god, sent from the future to help us with THE MOST AMAZING CONSOLE EVER!!

You can say bad things about Mac computers, but not the iphone. Not sure why here either, but look out.

Never say anything about Capitalism, as it is apparently a system without flaw.

Communism is apparently a government system, not a socio-economic system like the definition says. Even though it has never been tried in it's true root form without a dictator, it is the worst system ever so lets bomb it.

Republicans are the saving grace of the world, Democrats are evil and run it apparently. Even though they are both lying, cheating thieves that pander to crazy people, only one of them is right, the other is stupid.

"(George)Washington was not a member of any political party, and hoped that they would not be formed out of fear of the conflict and stagnation they could cause governance."

Boy, was he ever right, but don't say that here, cause you will be attacked.

Half these people are completely nuts on this site, that I have got used to. It's saving grace is it isn't as bad as most every other forum on the net.

Why do you keep posting this crap? If anything you look more like a PS3/Xbox/PC raid fan than neotheone, although he may just be as guilty except your post contains more useless drivel than his.

So I'll end it here:

Gzuss666 like PS3/Xbox/PC games and Neotheone likes Wii games.
