Nintendo and Dentsu Inc. will team up to provide Japanese Wii owners with original entertainment.

A recent article published in the Nikkei business journal announced Nintendo's plan to release a video distribution service on the Wii.

Nintendo and advertising agency Dentsu Inc. are joining efforts in order to establish a new line of revenue. Unlike similar services on different consoles, the content will be completely original, created exclusively for the Wii. Viewers should expect to see cartoons along with other unspecified programs when the service comes to fruition.

Both companies expect the service to be ready early next year in Japan, and later in 2009 overseas.
