Nintendo Offering WiiWare Demos Today

Today marks the debut of Nintendo’s demo test program, which they hope will help boost sales of WiiWare games. The first batch of demos is actually a pretty good line-up of games: World of Goo, NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits, Bit. Trip Beat, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord and Pokémon Rumble.

 

Strange that they’d put World of Goo up there but omit LostWinds; both games seem to enjoy a similar level of popularity on WiiWare. Replacing Pokémon with a Monkey Island demo would have been nice, too.
