100 WiiWare titles in development

Nintendo's US senior director of product development Tom Prata has revealed there are “about 100” games in development for the firm’s WiiWare service.

According to Prata, the games are at “various stages of completion”.

He ruled out the introduction of a ‘try-before-you-buy’ trial demo system for each game.

Speaking to IGN as part of a wider interview, he said: “Currently, there are about 100 games in development for WiiWare at various stages of completion."

He added: “We do not intend to have a 'try-before-you-buy' model that requires developers to create demos. There are a variety of places to learn more about WiiWare games such as the Nintendo Channel where consumers can find game information for WiiWare together with retail Wii products, Virtual Console and DS games.”

Prata also confirmed that the platform holder will release new titles each Monday on the service.

“Our plan is to make new WiiWare games available on Mondays, as we do with Virtual Console titles,” he commented. “We have not set a limit to the number of games that will launch on any given Monday. Rather, we are working with developers and their production schedules to bring the products to consumers in a timely manner.
