ssbbb.jpgIf you’ve got a Wii, chances are you’re still trying to eke enjoyment out of Super Mario Galaxy, despite beating it weeks ago (because you sure as hell didn’t buy the excellent Zack & Wiki). Good news is on the way?or more specifically, good games, as Nintendo has announced a slew of release dates for some of its long-awaited series, as well as a huge pile of shitty 3rd-party games based on a variety of shitty children’s properties (and, bizarrely, Agatha Christie). Highlights are here; there’s a full release schedule after the jump. (Via Kotaku)
