2008 Nintendo Wii & DS line-up announced

Nearly 150 new games coming in next 6 months

Nintendo plans to release at least 65 new Nintendo Wii games and 80 new Nintendo DS games in the first half of 2008.

"Our momentum is not limited to one system or one game," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's marketing replacement for Perrin Kaplan. "We're going broad and bold in 2008, with something for every member of the family."

First-party highlights from the release list include Advance Wars: Days of Ruin and Crosswords for DS, with Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Mario Kart Wii, and Wii Fit headed to Nintendo's fifth-generation console.

A healthy list of third-party games, something Nintendo platforms have historically struggled with, are also listed for the Wii, including Ninja Reflex from Electronic Arts, No More Heroes from Ubisoft, DeBlob from THQ, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed from LucasArts, and Okami from Capcom.

Notable Nintendo DS games not made by Nintendo include Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Rings of Fate from Square Enix, Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword from Tecmo, and Quick Yoga Training from Ubisoft.
