Video of Wii games announced at Nintendo’s press conference

It seems as though Nintendo was really trying to make up for their E3 presentation with the press conference tonight, doesn’t it? Sure, we had to endure quite a bit of Wii Music stuff, but some of the other reveals have tickled even my cold, black heart.

The video above shows off some of the Wii’s upcoming lineup. Footage of Taiko No Tatsujin, Sin and Punishment 2 and Punch-Out all make appearances here. We also get little glimpses of Animal Crossing and Dead Rising. Oh, and Endless Ocean 2! Well, they can’t all be exciting.

I’m thrilled that Punch-Out is coming back (and that Little Mac is in it) because it’s one of my favorite games both for NES and SNES, but I think Nintendo is going to have to work pretty hard to win back some of the hardcore audience that it has forsaken for so long. This is a step in the right direction, though. Let’s just hope they keep walking that path.

What do you guys think? Is there enough here to make you dust off the old Wii again?
