Nintendo's 2007 Japanese line-up holds few surprises

Animal Crossing? Unlikely as it hasn't even been announced yet.

How misleading! There are a couple of surprises there.

It's the first time that Wii Music has been confirmed, as well as a Wii health game.

SUPER MARIO GALAXY!!
METROID PRIME 3!!!!!!!
SMASH BROS BRAWL!!!!!!!!!

It almost sounded like CVG were disappointed there.
Sure, we were expecting it to be there, but after Reggie's announcement about prime, i feel this little (snigger) lot should be heralded as good news.

I'm very happy with that list. There are also the great third party games to consider coming up.


But yes..I expect more shockers to be announced this year...ONM in particular has hinted at it greatly
Everyone sucks, just don't tell them

Surely we'll be getting Prime 3 before Japan.
As for Day of Disaster we need to see more footage of the game it looks promising.

CVG sounded dissapointed there... I don't see why. I'm not dissapointed, I'm glad the games will be out this year, I just hope they hurry up the translation. And as for Metroid Prime 3, us Westerners always get Metroid games before the Japanese :D. Few surprises though, first I've heard of Animal Crossing (other than in concept), and Wii Health Pack (?!). I'm surprised Wii Music is a full game, I always thought it was jsut to show of what the Wii could do. Could be fun though I guess.

Yeah its great and everything, but I really wish Nintendo would practice what it preaches - innovation.

How about some new franchises with new settings and new characters?
I'm still great and you're still a smelly tosser

Will probably get:

Super Paper Mario
Super Mario Galaxy
Metroid Prime 3 Corruption
The Legend of Zelda DS

Would like to know more on:

Fire Emblem
Disaster (Day of Disaster)
Mario Party 8
Project H.A.M.M.E.R
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Forever Blue
Animal Crossing
Yoshi's Island DS
Chibi Robo! DS


Could have done with a few new announcements – They must be working on a Wii Mario Kart and maybe a Wii Pikmin, but I guess they won’t be out until next year even if they are working on them now.

:D I'll have a good collection of Wii games by the end of the year. I'll probably buy the following if they get great reviews:

Super Mario Galaxy
Super Paper Mario
Metroid Prime 3 Corruption
Battalion Wars 2
Fire Emblem

MP3 needs to have good online multiplay to compete with Halo 3, so was shocked to hear it hasn't been confirmed. I would like to know more about FE, because the first I had ever heard of it was when the characters were introduced in Super Smash Bros: Melee; but the screenshots and gameplay look like it will be my cup of tea (or coffee as I voted for on my Wii!).

Is it just me who's a teensy bit worried about the "brain softening game"?
