Nintendo updated their release schedule in Japan and a couple of announcements are on it. First there is a sequel to Ouendan called Moero! Nekketsu Rhythm Damashii Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2 (Burning Rhythm Soul! Osu! Tatake! Ouendan 2) scheduled for release in 2007. Mistwalker’s first DS game Archaic Sealed Heat (ASH) is slated for a 2007 release and the Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass got bumped down from 2007 to “undecided release date”. For the Wii Nintendo has Yawasaka Ataka Juku (Big Brain Academy) scheduled to come out on April 26, 2007. DK Bongo Blast officially moves over to the Wii and Wii Fitness is slated to come out in 2007.

    Another Ouendan!?

    Oh, happy day!

    It looks like the Wii is going to have a very strong line-up by the end of this year. Probably stronger than what the Gamecube had after 2 years.

    Wonder why Zelda DS is constantly being delayed?

  • EvilGamerX

    the_importer: Because that is Zelda tradition. Zelda games get delayed a lot.

    Not handheld Zelda games, only console ones.

    Pretty predictable line-up of titles, to be sure, many of which we already speculated were going to receive releases sometime in 2007 by Nintendo (wouldn’t be surprised if some titles ended up getting delayed until 2008!) but out of all the new games announced, Ouendan 2 striked my fancy.

    Out of all the recent DS to Wii transitions we’ve seen for many games (namely Trauma Center and Cooking Mama) Ouendan was really one of the titles that I wanted to see receive a Wii sequel. It goes without saying that I can’t wait to see how Nintendo maps the gameplay to the Wii remote but that’s merely only the icing on the cake. With new songs and even a 4-player mode recently confirmed as new features (not to mention more scenarios possibly as wacky as the original), this game is set to take the crown when it comes to quirky Japanese party games.
