Iwata: Huge interest in Wii Ware

Nintendo president Saturo Iwata claims that the company has had over 100 software proposals for games on its upcoming Wii Ware games download service.

Wii Ware will differ from the existing Virtual Console offering in that its content will be original, and developed specifically for the Wii hardware. It is designed to allow both established and independent developers an outlet to the Wii market.

IGN quotes Iwata as stating: We’ve already received proposals for over 100 titles from software development companies. We’ve made a platform for developing software at low cost, and would like to offer a new business chance based around a battle of ideas.”

It was announced yesterday that Pokemon Farm, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles and Dr. Mario are all in production for the service.
