Wii Chess looks comfortingly like the real thing

We find it inherently amusing that Wii Chess is -- minus a few frills -- the same game as countless other titles on the market, many of which can be bought with a small handful of spare change. Despite this, we still suspect Wii Chess' no-nonsense approach to the world's favorite strategy game...

We didn't think the awesome Picross DS would ever find its way out of Japan. But Nintendo surprised us, as they tend to do now and then, by announcing that the puzzler will get a European release on May 11th. They're branding this as part of the Touch Generations series, and mention that it will...

Touch! Generations brand extending to Wii

Included in their package of Fire Emblem: Goddess of Dawn, Siliconera came upon the above Touch! Generations brochure. Guess Nintendo is extending their brand to the Wii, which makes sense. The brand has been responsible for getting many non-gamers into the DS, so why wouldn't it work on the...
