    What Wii have to look forward to in 2008

    Many gamers have been often saying ďOther then Super Smash Bros Brawl, what else is thereĒ. Super Smash Bros Brawl may be one of the most anticipated titles of 2008, but there is still many other great games. Here is Wii Liveís look into 2008!

    **********

    Worms: A Space Oddity: March 10th


    Ok, you might say Worms is not a game to look forward too. But if you have been following it, then you would know that it is a brand new game, that supports 4 players through Nintendo WiFi connection, also, downloadable content through WiiConnect24, and all the fun and customization you would get from a Worms game! Itís definitely shaping up to be a good title, and something everyone should look forward.

The Wii version will have an exclusive Dual mode, which will let players compete head-to-head.

    **********

    Wii Fit: May 20th

    Wii Fit has already sold over 1 million units in Japan, and according to 1up, the game has a release date of May 20th for North America. There is no doubt Wii Fit will be a very big title this year, and do very well in sales.



    Mario Kart Wii: 2nd Quarter 2008

    This game is a no brainer to look out for on the 2008 list. Mario and crew once again hop on to there karts and bring the race to Wii. This time, with online play, more characters, more circuits, and motorcycles! The game will also release packaged with a special Mario Kart Wheel.

    **********

    With those being said, those are games that are releasing with Target Release dates. Meaning they either have a official date, or have a estimated month. The following games release dates have yet to be announced what-so-ever, but are still supposed to be 2008 titles.

    **********

    Disaster: Day of Crisis


    Disaster: Day of Crysis is an Action survival game. When a wave of natural disasters pummels the United States, a rogue special forces unit takes advantage of the chaos and seizes a nuclear weapon. Players race a car down a mountain to escape a roaring pyroclastic flow, dodge toppling buildings during a devastating earthquake and swim for their lives in a raging flood.

    **********

    Monster Hunter 3

    Thats right. The game that was a PS3 title, now brought over to Wii. Monster Hunter 3 is a Third-Person Action game. Sadly, the game has not yet been announced for even a 2008 release, but 2008 is the expected release time.

    **********

    Mario Baseball Wii

    The follow up to Mario Superstar Baseball for GameCube. There are very little details about this title, let alone a release date. But we can only expect a 2008 release.

    **********

    There are some games that didnít quite make it into the main article, for different reasons, but still deserve honorable mentions.

    * SEGA Superstars Tennis: March 4th. Full Details
    * Bully: Scholarship Edition: March 10th. Full Details
    * Okami: 2nd Quarter 2008. Full Details
    * Tales of Symphonia: Knights of Ratatosk. Full Details

    Itís the start of a new year, with many great titles to be released, who knows what could be announced along the way.

    I'm really looking forward to Monster Hunter 3. Since I can see at least 4 other games on that list that I will get, next year could be a good one. I'm hoping that some more titles will get announces for this system.

    And if anybody knows about Spore, its coming to the Wii in 08.

    I'm really looking forward to Wii Fit, and Mario Kart.

    Anyone know if there is a Rock Band in the works for Wii? I've heard rumors of both yes and no. I just don't see HOW it could be done. Judging by how you have to have a Wiimote for the guitars with Guitar Hero, wouldn't you have to have a Wii mote for every instrument?
