Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Disney's Chicken Little: Ace in Action (Wii)

Disney's Chicken Little: Ace in Action harnesses the innovative capabilities of the Wii controls and provides gamers with a unique, humor-filled action game.

Inspired by the "movie within a movie" ending of the box office hit film, "Chicken Little," and featuring the movie's super hero alter-ego characters Ace, Abby and Runt in an outer space adventure to save Earth, Disney's Chicken Little: Ace in Action lets players blast their way through a variety of environments while experiencing new storylines.

"Being part of the largest family entertainment company in the world and having access to a treasure trove of company-owned franchises enables us to continue to bring diverse brands to Nintendo platforms," said Graham Hopper, senior vice president and general manager, Buena Vista Games. "In its first month of existence, the Wii has captivated gamers, and we look forward to continue creating high-quality titles for the new console."

Buena Vista Games maintains its commitment to offering a diverse portfolio of games for Nintendo platforms. The company recently announced the formation of Fall Line Studio, a new development studio based in Salt Lake City that will create games for the Wii and Nintendo DS(TM). Buena Vista Games also plans to release two additional Wii titles in the first half of 2007 - Disney's Meet The Robinsons, inspired by the upcoming feature animation film from Walt Disney Pictures; and Pirates of the Caribbean 3, inspired by the upcoming third installment of the blockbuster film franchise.

Disney's Chicken Little: Ace in Action gives fans of last year's hit movie the chance to interact with new characters and environments as they venture through a story that centers around taking on villains, including Foxy Loxy, Goosey Loosey and Sleazel Weasel. The original Chicken Little and his friends Abby, Runt and Fish from the film are featured in cut scenes and provide commentary throughout the adventure. Players will shoot enemies by pointing the Wii Remote at their targets, while also using the Nunchuk to guide their way through the game.

Adam West ("Ace"), Zach Braff ("Chicken Little") and Joan Cusack (original "Abby") reprise their film roles as the voices of their characters. Humorous original cut scenes were written and created by Avalanche Software.

Published by Buena Vista Games, the game is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and older by the ESRB, Disney's Chicken Little: Ace in Action for the Wii is available for a suggested retail price of $39.99. Separate versions of the game for the PS2 and DS are also available at retail stores for a suggested retail price of $29.99.
