Ping Pong, Magnetica and Blackjack coming to WiiWare?


mal.jpgWith only a few weeks away until the WiiWare launch we’re still speculating what games Nintendo will release. Minna de Puzzloop seems like a shoe-in since it’s a first party game, but solid confirmation is always nice. The ESRB has a rating up for Magnetica Twist, which is likely the US name for Minna de Puzzloop.


The fate of Okiraku Ping Pong, a motion controlled ping pong game released by Arc System Works, seemed less certain. However, the ESRB hints towards Aksys taking care of it with a listing for Family Ping Pong.


Then is also a rating for V.I.P. Casino: Blackjack from High Voltage Software, the company behind the Harvey Birdman game. While this game has not been announced it’s only rated as a Wii game. I imagine High Voltage would have a very difficult time selling a standalone blackjack game in stores, so I’m guessing this is going to be for WiiWare. Hopefully, V.I.P. Casino: Blackjack won’t cost more than a deck of cards.
