WiiWare celebrates its 100th game with the launch of LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias


09/10/2009

This week sees the launch of the 100th WiiWare game and to mark this momentous occasion, the eagerly anticipated LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias comes exclusively to WiiWare this Friday. 

What makes this week so exciting is that the release of the original, award-winning LostWinds game marked the launch of WiiWare in May last year, so what better way to celebrate the 100th game than with the launch of the LostWinds sequel; LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias.

The following new releases are now available in the Wii Shop Channel:
