Nintendo Video Games Lineup for Early 2010

Consumers nationwide continue to snap up Nintendo products for the
holidays, and Nintendo is poised to carry that momentum into 2010.
Dozens of games for the Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi systems
are on the way in a wide range of categories from both Nintendo and its
third-party partners.

To bring a little color to the winter
months, Nintendo will release two new colors for its Wii Remote
controller. Starting Feb. 14, the controller will come in Pink or Blue
and will be bundled with a Wii MotionPlus accessory. Along with the
current White and Black versions of the controller, now every player in
four-player matches can have his or her own color.

“During the
holidays, tens of millions of Americans are going to spend enjoyable
hours with both Wii and Nintendo DS,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of
America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “And the
enjoyment will only grow in the early weeks of 2010, whether your taste
in gaming comes from exploring ocean depths, catching, training and
battling Pokémon or even designing your own micro-games.”

On the
Wii console, Endless Ocean™: Blue World arrives on Feb. 22 to provide
players with an adventurous and educational experience, complete with
underwater exploration, an adventurous storyline and Wii Speak™
compatibility. This January also sees the highly anticipated release of
Tatsunoko VS. Capcom™: Ultimate All-Stars. Available exclusively on
Wii, this new VS. series fighting game features global online game play
for those who have access to a broadband Internet connection.

On
the portable side, Nintendo’s hand-held systems will see the arrival of
a number of diverse games, including the eagerly awaited Pokémon™
HeartGold Version and Pokémon™ SoulSilver Version on March 14. Pokémon
HeartGold Version and Pokémon SoulSilver Version allow fans to return
to the scenic Johto region first introduced in the beloved Pokémon Gold
and Pokémon Silver games. The games have been fully enhanced with rich
graphics, updated sound, new touch-screen controls and much more.

On
March 28, WarioWare D.I.Y.™ lets users design their own micro-games
from scratch and share them with other WarioWare D.I.Y. owners via a
broadband Internet connection and Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection. Every
element, such as the characters, the environment, the actions and even
the purpose of the micro-game itself, can be created entirely by the
player. Also on March 28, hungry gamers can dig into America’s Test
Kitchen: Let’s Get Cooking, which gives family members the chance to
prepare 300 different dishes together. All of the recipes and the
how-to videos in the game were created by the popular public television
show America’s Test Kitchen.

On Jan. 18, Glory of Heracles™
introduces U.S. role-playing fans to the popular Japanese franchise.
The game is inspired by Greek mythology and written by Kazushige Nojima
of Final Fantasy fame. The traditional role-playing game features an
engrossing story and a robust battle system.
