By Mike Mason 31.01.2007 26

Quick News: Technology website Wired is reporting that Konami are due to announce "a bunch" of new Wii games this week. Could we expect news on Wii versions of Pro Evolution Soccer or Castlevania? Let's hope so...

Speculate with us below, and stick with C3 for more information!

Stock Trading Wii please.

I'd love that, if it turned out that Kojima's much-hyped and hoped for eventual Wii project ended up being a conversion of his DS stock trading game...

Oh just imagine if it would be online, trading stock with other Wii owners. And the WiiConnect24 feature could be used too, every morning waking up and seeing your Wii being updated with the latest stock market news...it would be so great!!!

You're making me want it now. Smilie

(Is sad and plays a fantasy share trading game online from time to time)

Not sad at all, gives you practice for the real thing ^_^

Allthough, that said, increaseingly in real tradeing bots are used.
Eventualy, as bots get better their will be almost no money to gain or lose by tradeing stocks.
Bots will "stablise" money values, like the best gamers playing infintely fast games.

This is sad for those wanting to make money tradeing, but probably pretty good for society overall.

Ontop...

...Id rather they made something original. Rather then do what ubisoft seem to be doing post red-steal.

Please. I need Pro Evo.

You think you've got problems.
What are you supposed to do if you are a manically depressed robot?
No don't even bother to answer that.
It just gives me a headache trying to think down to your level.

Well they have said they're working on a football game for Wii. Makes sense it would be of the Winning Eleven/Pro Evo series...

We all do my friend.

Hopefully Konami will announce a Silent Hill game or a BokTai spinoff for the Wii.

You know if you want Pro Evo you could just go and buy one of the previous 6 identical ones...

Hopefully it'll be something decent like Castlevania

Ah, but it'd be Wii-ified...motion controls could make a footy game amazing if implemented well (for smoother passing and things).

Oh dear, another castlevania, you are a bore Smilie

You just don't understand the addiction of PES, and plus i don't want to buy another console to play PES.

I'm sure they confirmed Pro Evo a while back.

Not exactly...they have it listed as 'Wii Soccer game'. Basically, it's 99% sure it's Pro Evo (unless they create some odd new football franchise for Wii), but they haven't said explicitly.

I don't see how using your hands to kick a football could possibly be done well

Using the pointing device could potentially make passing far easier than holding the analogue stick in the direction you want to kick the ball. I'm not suggesting anything gimmicky like 'flick your wrist to kick' or 'strap the remote to your leg'.

Konami do however own the franchises World Tour Soccer and ISS, but they would be foolish not to release a PES on the Wii. They also confirmed a basball game.

You are aware that every football game created for a console is played using your hands.

Heh, I was going to say the same thing about hands, but decided not to take him too literally.

I believe ISS is basically Pro Evo, they just changed the name of the franchise...

Not exactly, Konami released two at the start of the PS2's life and ISS played completely different than PES 1. ISS is more arcadey and I think it's more a continuation from the N64 series

I know i wasn't going to say it, then decided to make him look like a goon.

I think i agree with Ole Mason, there was ISS 2 and 3 on the Xbox, GameCube and PS2 all had them games and there was a definite more arcadey style of play and the camera was closer in i believe.

However these days ISS basically is PES.

ooooo awsome... lets hope its true... i bet we will see Ridge Racer... if the news is true!

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

Fair enough. I've not played that much of either franchise to be honest.

Castlevania please. Maybe with some older Castlevania goodies bundled?

Here's to wishful thinking!

He he, good point. But I obviously meant using it with a kicking motion, which I have no doubt that they'll do if they do end up making one
