Wii and DS both have a wonderful library of games as it is, but the big question is What’s coming during this first quarter of 2007 for Europe? Thankfully, Nintendo Wii and DS owners will have to wait no longer to find out, since the company has released a list of what’s to come. Here’s the schedule straight from Nintendo Europe.
Wario Ware Smooth Moves – What’s wacky and will have you twisting, turning, waving and even hula-hooping with your Wii Remote? Wario’s back with more than 200 crazy microgames made specifically for Wii, for up to 12 players to enjoy.
Children of Mana – Role-playing game masters Square-Enix return to their roots in the latest instalment of the classic Mana series of action-RPGs. Go it alone or join with up to three friends wirelessly.

Actionloop Puzzle games don’t come any faster and more furious than this! Use the stylus to flick the magnetic marbles into like-coloured groups, testing your brainpower and reactions in equal measure.
Magical Starsign – An out-of-this world, astrological adventure! Journey across the galaxy to find missing members of a magic academy and their teacher, using spells that grow more powerful when stars are in alignment.
