Nintendo of Korea has been following the bombardment of DS adverts over the past year with a slew of Wii TV placement pieces since the console launched on 26th April. The launch roster from Nintendo was just Wii Sports and Wii Play, whilst Ubisoft hit with Rayman Raving Rabbids 2, Capcom brought Zack & Wiki, EA had FIFA 08 on the first day, Bandai Namco launched Namco Museum Remix, Konami had Elebits and Tecmo's Korean-developed Pangya! Golf 2 was in the launch line-up as well. Certain game sales were revealed yesterday, along with how Nintendo sold 35,000 out of its initial 50,000 Wii units stock supply in the first month, but now it has been announced that more content is on the way and very soon indeed. Nintendo will be publishing the SEGA-developed Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games on 29th May (an advert for it can be seen below), whilst Activision is to release Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock sometime next month.

On the Nintendo DS front, both Sudoku DS and Mario Party DS hit this month from Nintendo (the latter launching just four days ago on 22nd May), whilst on the Third Party side, Success's Rondo of Swords was launched back in February via Korean distributor Cyberfront and translated by Studio 9, Bandai Namco brought Pac 'N Roll out in April under the new name of Pac 'N Ball and Tank Beat 2 launched at the end of April. On 29th May Korean developer CTGame Entertainment's 'DS Go and Stop' will launch, alongside the impending release of Super Dodge Ball on 5th June. Nintendo has since removed the upcoming releases section for its self-published titles, for some reason.
