Looks absolutely beautiful. I think WiiWare could be a massive hit. Given the rapidly swelling install base of the Wii, the low cost of development, the hands-off approach taken by Nintendo, and the ability to sell quirky ideas for game control, WiiWare could end up producing some of the best games on the platform.

Now if only they'd give us something to store them on!!!

Looks really promising! Love the art style.

Agreed on all accounts! WiiWare can be a good take-off platform for smaller developers and give people overall ability to be more creative when there isn't as much risk and need for big budgets.

An H/D would be brilliant, one of the very few things I think the Wii lacks.

The game olooks pretty damn good for a downloadable, should be interesting to try out!

Sony's admittedly already doing PS3, PSP, PSN and PS2. Not that it's a competition. =]

Some of these WiiWare games are looking absolutely good! Even better than actual Wii disc games! Smilie

WiiWare is going to be huge man! If only we had a hard drive...or even just access to the SD slot.

What's the last Sony created PS2 software.

I swear WiiWare is the way forward, I can't wait, definately getting this

Shit! This game only needs 22KB to download! That can't be true can it?

We've been seeing some great looking WiiWare titles recently. Shame on the lack of a HD...
