UPDATE: They are both back up, and there is a Wii Firmware Update. Details here.
Anyone trying to download any games on their Wii or DSi will notice that the Wii Shop Channel and the DSi Shop are both down for maintenance. Now, normally I would pass this off as nothing… but there is a small chance that it could be something. I mean, it’s not just the Wii Shop Channel that’s down, it’s that and the DSi Shop. Denise Kaigler recently teased a surprise for Wii owners connected to the internet. Or maybe it’s for the Doc Lewis’ Punch-Out game for Club Nintendo Platinum members.

We already covered the details on the Super Guide feature in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, but there are a few new interesting tidbits that I feel like should be posted. Check them out…

Once again, this is a RUMOR. It does go very well with the fact that Miyamoto has a keynote in a few days. And hey, the fact that Nintendo is working on yet another Mario game that is pretty far along (they are recording the voice acting now) could maybe go along with it as well. Oh, and there is that rumor of a Zelda Wii trailer this month. But remember, [...]
