We have previously reported that Nintendo would begin releasing brand-new original titles in the WiiWare section of the Wii Shop Channel beginning early next year. But we now know that between Nintendo and 3rd party developers, over 100+ titles are already in development. Mr. Satoru Iwata (international president of Nintendo) had this to say:
"We've already received proposals for over 100 titles from software development companies. We've made a platform for developing software at low cost, and would like to offer a new business chance based around a battle of ideas."
Many titles have already been confirmed for the new service, but the most notable franchises on the list are Pokemon, Mario, and Final Fantasy Chronicles.
