Nintendo Power Wii

Codaname Revolution has gotten their hands on the November issue of Nintendo Power and has done a summary of whats in it:

  • UPDATE 1: One of the first Wii game ads: Trauma Center: Second Opinion. It shows an appointment note and at the bottom it states “General Surgeon’s Warning: Trauma Center and Wii are an addictive combination that may result in prolonged fun for everyone. Early detection and preordering are key to achieving all the possible entertainment that these items can provide.” Another ad appears which has been seen before for Red Steel.
  • UPDATE 2: [I almost had the “big one” when I saw Star Wars: New Alliance right on top of the Prepare for (Wii) Launch and realized it was for handhelds, oh well] Most of the Prepare for Launch feature is already known. Also info on Strikers and BWii, but nothing new. However a list of 33 launch window games are listed! They are the following:
  1. The Ant Bully
  2. Avatar: The Last Airbender

  • UPDATE 3: We should see more Commodore Games from Epyx on the Virtual Console which are confirmed to be in the works.
  • UPDATE 4: News we have already heard about but it’s interesting that Nintendo Power points it out such as Spore possibly making it to the Wii and Lucasarts & Radical working on next-gen Game.
  • UPDATE 5: Here comes the Wii previews. First is Elebits with new screens, it’ll have over 15 stages and a multi-player mode. Monster 4×4, not much new except that it will look better than its predecessor and that is good to know! Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam, two new screens and the game will have areas like Chicago shopping mall, Edinburgh castle, Hong Kong waterfront and the game will have 100 events from 30sec-4min sprints/marathons. Far Cry: Vengeance, three new screens and the graphics are horrible, (N64-1.5 horrible) but it is obvious the game is in an early build. Avatar, three new screens and the game plays similar to X-men Legends. Rayman isn’t necessarily a Wario-ware like title as all the mini-games are part of the story. Barnyard will utlize the Wii-mote and you can do things like break boxes, shake jugs of milk to turn them into cream and in one screenshot it looks like a Golf mini-game feature as well.
  • UPDATE 6: A four-page Madden NFL 07 feature. Most of it is known but the screenshots made me think of DS. Of course the graphics shown in video previews are a million times better than what is shown here. Game has as 2on2 Minigame where four athletes face off in a narrowed field and each team has four downs to make it to the end zone. Next mini-game is a Kicking Combine in which the player has to kick the ball and it has to land on what is displayed on the screen. Next is Y.A.C. Attack Minigame which rotates players into the quarterback position so you can pass and run. Defenders get points for stopping his own man and another. The game will look much better, it will have double the textures the GCN version had, more-realistic lighing/shadows and a higher polygon count. Grass is a great example which shows off a realistic treatment.
  • UPDATE 7: Next is a three-page feature on Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz. A Banana Blitz poster is included in this issue! Few new screens. Game has eight themed worlds and additional worlds to be unlocked and each world consists of eight puzzle stages plus a boss. Bosses like a pirate-like ape and a sasquatch. The rest of the feature shows off mini-games we may have already seen, except perhaps Squash mini-game where you wield the Wii-mote like a tennis racket and the great part is it is not on rails! Meaning you can control the character with the analog stick while playing Squash.
  • UPDATE 8: Next up is a three-page feature on Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. Many new screens. Game has 17 locations and Dr. Doom seems to be the main baddy. Rhino, Scropion, Shocker, Thunderball, Bulldozer, Piledriver, Mysterio and Dragon Man are some of the villains in the game. Galactus is in the game. Stan Lee interview reveals that The Watcher is in the game. Ultimate Alliance is Stan’s favorite game and a sequel will eventually happen. Nick Fury and Silver Surfer are two unlockable characters. Marvel Ultimate Comic Book fans will recognize some of the storylines and battles in the game.
  • UPDATE 9: The Stuff of Legends (Zelda) Part 2 (continued from October Issue): Top 5 Minigames – Money Making, Fishing, Scenic Photo Spots, Private Oasis Puzzle and Tingle Tower Games. Top 5 Items/Weapons – Hookshot, Ocarina of Time, Mirror Shield, Master Sword and Bombs. Top 5 Dungeons – Death Mountain, Dark Palace, Forest Temple, Stone Tower Temple and Forsaken Fotress. Nintendo Power Playback features Ducktales (released September 1989) for the NES (definitely one of the greats). Mini-previews of Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck and Ducktales 2. Capcom is confirmed to support the VC, hopefully Ducktales will make it.
  • UPDATE 10: Nintendo Power interviews Hawthorne Heights who are heading for the Fusion Tour. Matt from the group says “We already held the controller..it makes me happy that it’s not $8,000 like the other systems are going to be.“ JT (who is looking foward to Zelda) says “We were pretty impressed. I didn’t know that that’s what it was going to be like. I just thought it would just be, you know, the next Nintendo system. But it looks like it’s going to be something totally different than anybody’s done before.”
  • UPDATE 11: Next Month – Countdown to Launch – “The Wii-volution is about to begin, and Nintendo Power is on the front lines. We’ll have complete coverage of launch plans, titles, and reasons why Wii will change gaming as we know it.”
