Release dates for new WarioWare and Pokemon games announced

Nintendo unveils AAA+ release information

Having finished releasing new titles with The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, Nintendo has unleashed a slew of new release information, with release dates for many of the company's upcoming titles, and more general month/quarter release info for a handful of other games.

On the Nintendo DS, two of the company's most high-profile portable franchises will see release within two weeks of each other. Pokemon HeartGold and Soulsilver will be coming out on March 14, while WarioWare D.I.Y will do it itself on March 28. Seeing as how there are few similarities between Nintendo's monster capturing and rapid-fire mini-game franchises, I doubt the two will cannibalize each others sales.

Glory of Heracles will be the first game in the 22-year old Greek-mythology based Heracles series to come to the US when the DS iteration lands on January 18. Other major DS releases include Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth on February 16 and Platinum Games' first DS release, Infinite Space, which comes out in March. The DSi Store's biggest highlights are the iPhone hit Fieldrunners, and the DS debut of the Game Boy platforming series in Shantae: Risky's Revenge.

Between WiiWare and retail releases, the Nintendo Wii will have a pretty full release slate, even if Nintendo doesn't have much in the way of first-party titles to deliver. The only Wii disc coming from Nintendo itself is Endless Ocean: Blue World, the second game in the deep-sea diving franchise. Other companies will be picking up the slack, as Capcom will bring Tatsunoko vs. Capcom to the Wii and Phoenix Wright to WiiWare in January, and Mega Man 10 to the downloadable service in March.

Ubisoft will bring No More Heroes 2 to the Wii in January, and is promising to deliver the delayed Red Steel 2 during the year's first quarter. The intriguing Super Meat Boy will be coming to WiiWare that same hazy time period.

The full release list is posted below. Remember, these are subject to change. Which Ubisoft "Imagine" game are you most looking forward to?

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Ben Ramsden

Sharp PN-40TC1 Huddle Board

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

Sarah Ieroianni

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Ratchada Dunn

Sharp PN-40TC1 Huddle Board

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

George Khoury

Sharp PN-40TC1 Huddle Board

The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic

David Coyle

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
