Kotaku got to see New Super Mario Bros. Wii in action recently and they’ve written up two posts. The first describes the Super Guide feature, which you can read about in my post here. The other post has more details on the game and what it includes. Below are the highlights, or head over to Kotaku for the full details.
– Campaign mode that includes 8 worlds, each with its own mushroom huts, fortresses and castles, just like in New Super Mario Bros. on the DS. – Plot involves Bowser capturing Peach and Mario rescuing her… the usual. – If you play by yourself, you have to play as Mario.

However, many have wondered if this will make the game too easy since the computer can just take over if [...]
Recently we learned of the game Rage of the Gladiator and how it will be the first WiiWare title to be compatible with Wii MotionPlus. Now comes word of another WiiWare MotionPlus compatible game called ShadowPlay. The ESRB rating describes the game as “a puzzle game in which players place a variety of household objects in front of a projector to make shadow images. Players must create specific shadows (e.g., a music note, a fish, a helicopter) to progress through the game.”
ShadowPlay will release Fall 2009. Hopefully Wii MotionPlus will make this game more enjoyable. I like having games that only cost a few dollars supporting Wii MotionPlus, it makes it [...]
