That downpour of Wii Ware news? Good news for Wii owners. Japanese ones at least, since they were the only ones that got details and a launch timeframe. No such luck for the US, while Europe and Australia... oh don't make me laugh. But while North America didn't get a firm date, Perrin Kaplan did tell Game|Life that they're at least looking/hoping for a similar launch window:
I think we'll be looking at a somewhat similar time frame [to Japan] , but we haven't announced anything yet.
She also goes on to say that while some of the Wii Ware titles announced at Nintendo's Fall Conference were obviously Japan-only, many of them are "global" projects that should show up in the West.
