A look at the best upcoming Wii games

We already showed you Nintendo’s 3DS teaser compilation video from tonight’s big Nintendo press conference, but there’s more where that came from. Though the 3DS is getting all the love and attention that newborns usually receive, the console’s two uglier, but highly successful older siblings have some stuff going on as well.

First up is the Wii, which has a number of awesome looking games coming down the pipe; Mistwalker’s The Last Story, weird-ass RPG Earth Seeker, a new Fatal Frame, and perhaps most importantly, a new Rhythm Tengoku. Please, please, please, please Nintendo, don’t get some pop star who has no correlating appeal to Rhythm Tengoku to promote this new game. Lady Gaga maybe, but really, Beyonce is no longer allowed in this dojo. It just didn’t work.

And speaking of African-American celebrities that have nothing to do with videogames, is that you Billy Blanks? In a videogame?

Oh you’re too kind, really thanks.
