WiiWare demos are go

Bit. Trip Beat - Can you feel it?

UPDATE: There are now even more demos available for download like Pokemon Rumble and World of Goo so it seems this is the start of something beautiful after all!

True to their word, Nintendo are now offering demos for a select number of WiiWare titles. Bizarrely, only three are available at the moment and even more odd is the absence of either LostWinds titles – two games that should be promoted a hell of a lot more. What we do get is a chance to play the retro-rhythm shooter Bit. Trip Beat, ultra long titled The Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord and platforming adventure NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits. All are available until 16th January 2010 and it’s unclear as to whether more will be coming after or if this is a one-off trial for the service. I would imagine Nintendo will continue offering demos but don’t see the point of only allowing downloads for a limited time. At least it’s a start in the right direction for Nintendo’s online services. Check out the Wii Shop Channel for access and more info.
