Christmas is right around the corner and it’s never too late to make your wish list. If your a Wii owner, you may not know what games you want (or what games to expect). Here are some of the hottest titles coming to a Wii near you this Christmas.
Wario Land: Shake It!
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a Mario spin-off game. This season Wario, Mario’s evil nemesis, returns in this new adventure with an old school 2D platformer approach and seamless, new school graphics. The game is one of the smoothest looking and eye-catching platformers on the Wii and shouldn’t be passed up! A definite stocking-stuffer.
Rygar: The Battle of Argus
The return of Rygar, after a 20-year hiatus from the Nintendo console, is much welcomed by fans waiting to don the ‘Diskarmor’ once again. Originally planned as a reworking of the PS2’s Rygar: The Legendary Adventure, Tecmo decided to give it a facelift for the Wii version. Adding a lot more combat elements and gorgeous new graphics. Rygar’s shaping up to be an aesthetically appealing and engaging action-adventure choice for your Wii.
With the Dark Knight becoming the 2nd highest-grossing movie of all time, the Batman franchise has become quite a hot commodity. Lego Batman naturally appeals to the younger crowd and the darker edge will attract mature audiences as well. All Bruce’s foes will be there: Riddler, Two-Face, Penguin, The joker123, and plenty of other villains! This game should please a wide demographic and the dark knight could be the dark horse this winter (by exceeding expectations).
While Wii-Fit is a bit costlier– about $50 more (because of the balance board accessory)– than most Wii games, it’s well worth. It’s a whole new way to get fit- virtually! You ‘ll feel the burn just like you were really working out (cause you are). Granted, it’s geared more for muscle tone and balance improvement than a true cardio workout, it’ll still help you get fit– and it’s the perfect exercise solution for couch potatoes!
