Pokemon Battle Revolution will be the first Wii online game in America; more titles are coming, says Reggie.
Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime said in a DICE interview that the tools needed to get Wii games online are now starting to find their ways into the hands of developers.
Talking with Dean Takahashi of The Mercury News, Reggie stated that Wii online development kits have already been distributed and more online titles are on the way to America, the first one being Pokemon Battle Revolution. (Battle Revolution does not currently have a solid U.S. release date.)
Also during the interview, the Regginator said that he believes it's only a question of "when" the Wii will surpass the Xbox 360 in terms of North American market share: "It's clear [Microsoft is] slowing down. It's not unthinkable to see that next year we could surpass their installed base."
"We're about moving to the next rocket stage in our growth," Reggie said.
