Nintendo manufactures and markets hardware and software for its Wii, NDS, 3DS, and Wii U systems. Since 1983, when it launched the NES, Nintendo has sold more than 3.1 billion video games and more than 526 million hardware units globally, including the Wii, Wii U, NDS, 3DS, as well as the Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, SNES, N64 and GameCube systems. It has also created industry icons that have become well-known, household names such as Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Zelda and Pokémon.

Note: Some demo versions do not support all game features, and players cannot save their in-game progress in demo versions.

WiiWare

My Little Baby (dtp young entertainment/600 Wii Points)

Have you always dreamed of having a cute little baby to lovingly care for? Now is your chance. Your little bundle of joy smiles at you gleefully, and you have to do everything you can to make sure it develops and grows in a healthy manner. Changing, bathing and feeding are as much a part of your duties as shopping, preparing meals, rocking your baby to sleep, playtime, dressing and teaching it to crawl and walk. But above all, what your little angel needs is your love and attention. All this, plus an enormous selection of toys, clothes and other objects, will make your little one the happiest baby in the whole wide world.

BIT.TRIP CORE (Aksys Games/0 Wii Points; full version available for 600 Wii Points/demo version)

BIT.TRIP CORE continues the BIT.TRIP saga in this retro-arcade-style game. BIT.TRIP CORE is an exciting action/rhythm game that's best played while zoning out on the tunes and letting the visuals swallow you whole. The experience is inspired by games from the '80s, but with a modern twist. The game play is entirely new to the series, leaving the single-axis controls of BIT.TRIP BEAT behind in favor of the ability to control two axes. If the difficulty gets you down, grab a friend and play cooperatively in two-player multiplayer mode. (Additional controllers are required for multiplayer features and are sold separately.)
