Wii download service to launch in March Thursday, January 10 2008, 12:38 GMT By David Gibbon, Gaming Reporter The much publicised Nintendo Wii download service WiiWare will launch this March, according to games developer Engine Software. Project Bang, a casual game by Engine, will be one of the first titles released onto the service and, according to its creators, will take full advantage of the Wii Remote. "Nintendo's WiiWare service is a new downloadable game content service that is scheduled to be launched in March 2008," stated Engine Software. "We are very excited about our first game for the WiiWare service," commented Ruud van de Moosdyk, VP of development at Engine. "When we acquired our official Wii licence last year we already had several concepts written up that would be ideal for WiiWare, and Project Bang is the first to actually go into production." Nintendo has created WiiWare to offer developers a low cost way of producing original Wii games for digital download, promising to work in a similar way to the PlayStation Network and Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade.
