First US online Wii game announced

US gets online Wii game - Europe to follow?

Nintendo yesterday announced this year's spring and summer lineup for the US market, sharpening anticipation for upcoming European releases.

Nintendo's biggest fanfare was reserved for the announcement of 'Pokemon Battle Revolution', the first Wii game that will take advantage of the console's online capabilities. Pokemon Battle Revolution is also the first game to feature Wii and DS connectivity. Through this feature, users not only have the option of importing saved characters from the upcoming Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl, but they can use the DS as a controller.

Pokemon Battle Revolution has already been available in the Japanese market since December, but will be released for North American audiences on June. Other upcoming Nintendo titles for the Wii in the US include Super Paper Mario on 9 April, Mario Party 8 on 29 May, and Big Brain Academy on 11 June. Upcoming Nintendo DS titles include Pokemon Diamond/Pearl on 22 April, Planet Puzzle League on 4 June.
