Nintendo has halted production on their revolutionary Wii console. This news was posted on the Nintendo of Japan website and comes about a year after Nintendo released their next-gen console, the Wii U.
The Wii has brought with it many memories and motion-controlled gaming. Was it a fad? For most people, probably, but for a lot of gamers, the Wii’s unique library of games is enough to keep us coming back for years. Actually, there are still about 15 – 20 games that I want to add to my personal library.
Another month brings a different lineup of featured game rewards over at Club Nintendo. This month, as is the usual, two games are available for the Wii/Wii U and Nintendo DSi/3DS systems. Those yearning for racing or adventure will find Super Mario Kart on the Wii and The Legend of Zelda on the 3DS Virtual Console. There’s even something here for those that like to play card games. Here is a list of this month’s featured games:
On November 1st, 2013, two new Mario-themed Wii Remote Plus controllers will be released. These new Wii Remote Plus controllers will come in Mario red and Luigi green, both sporting logos for their respective Mario Bro. While each controller will retail for $39.99, no matching Nunchuck was announced.
You’ve found this page because you’re ready to transfer your Wii’s data to your brand new, sexy Wii U console. Before you get started, there are a few notes you should take into consideration first. These details come directly from Nintendo Support
Once your WiiWare and Virtual Console games are transferred over to your Wii U, they are are not retrievable, meaning you will no longer be able to play them on your Wii and you can’t transfer that data back.
Wii U to Wii U transfers aren’t supported at the moment, so you will not be able to buy a Wii U Basic Set then transfer your data to an upgraded Wii U Deluxe Set.
Make sure you transfer your data from the Wii to Wii U before trading, or selling your Wii console. That data cannot be retrieved by Nintendo.
You must have your Wii and Wii U console available to do the transfer.
Nintendo has announced a price drop for three of its best-selling Wii games. The three games that will be receiving a price cut are Super Mario Galaxy 2, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and Wii Sports Resort. Starting today, all three games will be available at the suggested retail price of $29.99.
Ubisoft has announced Just Dance Kids 2014 for release on the Wii U and Wii. The game will include new tracks from Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, One Direction, as well as Kids TV shows such as The Wiggles and Yo Gabba Gabba!, plus moves designed specifically for kids.
Just Dance Kids 2014 will be available on Wii U and Wii on October 22, 2013.
GameStop is now offering pre-owned copies of Metroid Prime Trilogy and Xenoblade Chronicles for sale. Both Wii games are considered to be fairly rare amongst collectors, but both are also considered to be quite valuable. While you can buy a copy of either game – at the moment anyway – GameStop is charging over $80 each, considerably higher than the $49.99 price tag the original releases demanded. Metroid Prime Trilogy is priced at $84.99 and Xenoblade Chronicles sits at $89.99.
Does anybody own either title? If not, do you plan to buy one from GameStop?
Madworld is the first video game developed by Platinum Games. It also happens to be one of the most violent games on the Wii. Platinum Games hasn’t released a video game on a Nintendo console since 2009, but that changes this year with the release of The Wonderful 101 on September 15.
New featured game rewards – for the month of August 2013 – are now available over at Club Nintendo. There is a nice variety available this month including two Wii Virtual Console games, a 3DS Virtual Console game, and a DSiWare game.
If you needed to get your Angry Birds Star Wars fix on a home console – or handheld system – Rovio will be providing one a little later this year. On October 29, 2013, you can venture out to purchase Angry Birds Star Wars for your Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, or the Wii.
Welcome to the first edition of MiniFortress.com’s Nintendo Digest. The Nintendo Digest is a news hub where you will be able to find all the hottest Nintendo news stories. The current plan will see a Nintendo Digest hub posted on MiniFortress.com at least three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). Also, the Nintendo Digest will provide recurring, original content that won’t be found within the other pages of MiniFortress.com.
Will you see the Nintendo Digest on a daily basis? Sometimes, depending on how many newsworthy stories there are to post. So, why are we changing the way we deliver news? We feel the blog method we currently use is over done. Every person and their mother is now creating a video game website using the exact same formula, and we feel it’s becoming tired. We are using the Nintendo Digest format to set us apart from those other websites.
Electronic Arts (EA) has confirmed that a version of FIFA 14 will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS, and strangely enough, the Wii. Obviously, neither game will be developed using EA’s new EA Sports Ignite Engine, because they’ve already confirmed that the Xbox One and PS4 will be the only two consoles to support the engine. Actually, no concrete details are available for either version of FIFA 14 on Nintendo hardware.

10 Most Wanted Newcomers for the new Super Smash Bros. Game
“Toad: It’s time for Toad to be a fighter in the Smash Bros. series, and why not? He has adventured alongside the Mario Bros. a few times and has proved to be a valuable asset. Toad does have a few unique characteristics that could easily translate into special moves. Toad is strong and fast – as seen in Super Mario Bros. 2 – which could let him pluck and throw vegetables at blinding speeds. Toad’s mushroom cap could also make for a devastating headbutt attack.”
