Nintendo Channel Voters Pick Budget Wii Games


imageNintendo has a different take on budget reprints. Sony and Microsoft drop the price of once hot selling games and put them back on the market with modified box art. For Wii games, Nintendo’s Everyone’s Recommendation Selection is based solely on acclaim from Nintendo Channel voters.


Games in the Everyone’s Recommendation Selection must have an overall rating of platinum, gold, silver or bronze. Over one million votes have been registered in Japan and 75 titles are available for the collection. Out of those seven games have been selected for the launch lineup.


They are…


428 (Platinum) – Sega
Muramasa: The Demon Blade (Gold) – Marvelous
Arc Rise Fantasia (Silver) – Marvelous
One Piece Unlimited Cruise: Episode 1 (Silver) – Namco Bandai
Family Ski: World Ski &  Snowboard (Silver) – Namco Bandai
Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World (Silver) – Namco Bandai
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 (Silver) – Namco Bandai


Nice to see underselling games like Arc Rise Fantasia and Muramasa: The Demon Blade get a second chance in the spotlight. The collection goes on sale on February 25. Each reprint will cost 2,800 yen ($30).
