"As for the WiiConnect24 service, we do not feel it is something that needs to be utilised for this title."
Some games simply have nothing to gain.
I'm really looking forward to this one...and great to hear it's likely to come to Europe as well!
Hopefully we'll see more of the 'spiritual successor' series in the future, on DS as well
Liking the looks of this game, I'll be interested when it comes out.
