Nintendo News: May 06, 2010

Later this year, Disney will be releasing a Wii game called Epic Mickey.  It’s an action-platformer starring the quintessential mouse, but with a darker edge.  Not only that, the game will be transformed into an actual book.  Few details have been revealed on either title, but we’ll likely get more info at E3.

In Nintendo’s fiscal report, they announced that Wii sales are down 21% from last year.  This is probably due to fewer high-profile titles in 2009.  This year will see a new Zelda, Mario, Metroid and several other big name titles, so I really don’t think this is a big issue.  Besides, even with the downward slide, this was Nintendo’s third-best year ever.

The latest issue of Nintendo Power talks about the next De Blob game, among other things.  One little sidenote mentions the announcement a new major game right around E3.  Whether or not it will be anounced in the magazine or at E3 is not clear.  Here’s hoping it’s a new F-Zero.  PLEEEEEAAAAAAASE!!!
