Nintendo’s shape shifting WiiWare game going international



Most of Nintendo's first party WiiWare games are sitting on Wii Shopping Channels around the world. Yakuman Wii, a mahjong game with Miis, is probably the exception. Katachi no Game: Maru Bou Shikaku (Game of Shapes: Ball, Stick, Square) may have been the second since it feels like a Touch Generations training game. Nintendo of America hasn't been eager to publish DS games such as Theta internationally, but things appear to be different for Katachi no Game: Maru Bou Shikaku.


At least Australia is getting it in English. Maboshi: The Three Shape Arcade was just rated by the OFLC, which logically sounds like the Japanese release. If a localized version is being developed it’s probably coming out in North America too. We don’t have any word on a date, but Maboshi: The Three Shape Arcade is on the WiiWare horizon.
