From February 25th Japanese consumers will be able to get their hands on a brand new range of budget Wii software, Nintendo of Japan has confirmed.
Kotaku reports that the Minna no Osusume Collection – or the Everyone's Recommendation Collection – will retail for YEN 2,800 (19). Each title will be branded up with either bronze, silver, gold or platinum badges that are designed to represent that game's ‘rating'.
Eight titles will be included in the initial offer, including Muramasa: The Demon Blade, Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, Dragon Ball Z Sparking and Family Ski.
Hopes for a similar range in the UK have been scuppered by Nintendo, however, with a spokesperson telling MCV that it currently has no plans for a Wii budget range on this side of the globe.
The same goes for DS and DSi, the platform holder added – to date no Nintendo handheld has ever had a budget range.
