Submission + - Nintendo announces some Megatons 2

DeanCubed writes: "Nintendo has just made some major announcements this morning!

First of all, Sonic the Hedgehog is now in Smash Bros. In addition, they have unveiled the WiiWare service which allows Wii owners to purchase and download original games from various developers. Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles and an online multiplayer Dr. Mario headline the launch of the service.

Two new Channels have also been announced — one to compare and vote on Mii creations, and a demo/minigame download channel for the DS. Next, motorbikes have been added to Mario Kart.

Mario Baseball for Wii was announced.

The latest firmware update has enabled full USB keyboard support for the Wii, and Logitech has announced a Wii keyboard. Finally, one of the huge upcoming blockbusters in Japan, Monster Hunter 3 from Capcom, has been changed from PS3 exclusive to now appearing on Wii.

Submission + - Wii System Update Adds USB Keyboard Support

Kemanorel writes: I woke up this morning to a pulsing blue light from the disc slot of my Wii. Upon turning it on and checking through the 3 messages from Nintendo, I found that there is a new system update that adds USB keyboard support across several portions of the console. The Wii Menu/Message Board and Internet Channel are the first to see instant use of the keyboard. Now it's up to games to include support as well.

For something that should have been there from the beginning though, it's about time.
