Nintendo will offer demo versions of select video games for its
WiiWare™ downloadable game service starting Nov. 22. Wii™ owners with a
broadband Internet connection will be able to visit the Wii Shop
Channel to access demo versions of WiiWare games without using up any
Wii Points™. The demos will allow people to sample a wide selection of
games to help them decide which ones best suit their tastes.
The initial lineup of demos available on Nov. 22 includes BIT.TRIP FATE, And Yet It Moves, ThruSpace™ and Jett Rocket. Additional demos will be added on Mondays and each will remain available on the Wii Shop Channel for a limited time.
WiiWare game demos are just the latest addition to the wide variety of information and entertainment options available to Wii owners. Wii owners can access various channels on the Wii Menu, including the Nintendo® Channel, which offers information about and videos of current and upcoming games for Nintendo systems. Likewise, Wii owners who are also Netflix members with a qualifying plan can instantly watch movies and TV shows streamed directly to their TVs once they have downloaded Netflix from the Wii Shop Channel.
