Early 2011 line-up of games for Wii and Nintendo DS


9 February 2011 – Nintendo today announces that Wii has generated strong sales in 2010, outselling any other home console on the market. With total Wii sales of 5.44 million systems in Europe for calendar year 2010, the European installed base for Wii now stands at over 26 million. These European Wii owners will be enjoying a strong line-up of game releases in the first three months of this year with games ranging from Kirby’s Epic Yarn to Mario Sports Mix.

The cute and adorable Kirby returns after almost a decade in a remarkably stitched together world of fabric and thread in Kirby’s Epic Yarn on 25 February and the recently released Mario Sports Mix sees Mario return in an action-packed sports frenzy for all your friends and family.

Sales of Nintendo DS consoles also reached new heights in 2010, selling 6.69 million units; in the calendar year 2010, more than any other home or handheld console. Nintendo DS owners can look forward to the upcoming Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version, which launches across Europe on 4 March. Enjoy new Legendary Pokémon™, new heroes, a surprising new region, plus new ways for you to have fun and communicate locally as well as through the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service. Both games also launch as part of a limited edition bundle which comes with a Nintendo DSi console and Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version.
