    SSBX.... Is that the acronym for Super Smash Brothers Brawl? Or something else? I was assuming that "Brawl" would abbreviate to B instead of X, but you never know with the company that gave us the GCN. :p

    I hope this shortens the gap between EU/US Smash Bros launch.

    As for all this news? **** yea!

    Monster Hunter was the only game that had me wanting a PSP, and now the Wii is getting a sequel? Sony really can't keep hold of these exclusives any more!

    Nice for Mario Kart, I like variation in vehicles. It was the rose in the pot of dirt for Double Dash and opened up so much replayability in MKDS.

    DS demos, yey. Could be useful if they just throw loads of demos up there.

    Fire Emblem DS has me very happy, that series is ruddy stellar. Best tactical RPG IMO. So long as they keep it 2D :p

    Pokemon Farm is a Pokemon management app? I'd like to see my current collection in 3D, if the price is right :)

    So we won't see Mario Kart for the Wii until 08? :( Or did I miss something.

    Also, I'm stoked about the demos. I was shocked to see the lack of them. I'd rather try games before I buy just in case the game play isn't what I had intended. Like WarioWare. It's fun for a while but then it's just plain stupid.

    kotaku has some pictures of "Final fantasy: Square Enix just keep on making the titles too damn long" game

    http://kotaku.com/gaming/new-ff-for-wii/new-final-fantasy-game-announced-for-wii-309032.php

    monster hunter is of course really popular in japan so this is really good news ...wasn't monster hunter 3 already anounced for the PS3 ? is this going to be a port ?

    and those DS demos should have been here earlier ;)

    edit: i'm jsut reading on some other news site that the final fantasy game will be priced at 1500 wii points for japan

    I heard there was never a real date for Japan and now there is. Maybe ours was just pushed back a couple weeks?

    The US was the only region with a release date announced, NoJ said late 2007 and NoE (conservatively) said Q1 2008.

    Check the name, the Sonic one was the article I didn't write :)

    Anyway, there hasn't been a delay announced yet, has there? Japan didn't have a date; they've just been given one for January. The US had the December 3rd date, and it's suspicious that Nintendo's changed it to "TBA" but they haven't announced an actual delay, right?

    It's technically TBD which I have not seen before for a game. It's either a date or a TBA. Maybe it'll be moved forward!? ;) kidding.

    I am hoping for a 18th release.

    The Smash Bros site begs to differ with you.

    That is the most oddly-shapped A I have ever seen.:p

    TBD would be To Be Determined.

    Just updated all my games and the extra channels on our Wii and spotted a new download animation! Anyone else had the Mario and Luigi swimming one yet?
