Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has confirmed that Wii gamers will be able to play games online from the second quarter of 2007. Reggie’s pledge came in an interview with SpikeTV’s Game Head show, where he also let slip that more Wii channels were in the works.
Palgn reports that despite Japan so far being the only region with a Wii game that can be played online, that that’s about to change in the coming months, with Mr. Fils-Aime promising: “The multiplayer is coming. During the Japanese launch, there is PokÃ©mon Battle Revolution, and that’s really the first one. There will be titles that we’ll be announcing in first quarter 2007, that’ll be multiplayer-enabled. So during second quarter 2007, people will be able to have a multiplayer experience on Wii.”
