Nintendo unveils Q1 2009 Wii and DS lineups

On Wednesday Nintendo announced the full lineup of Wii and Nintendo DS game titles the world can look forward to in Q1 of 2009. Totaling 39 Wii games and 64 titles for the Nintendo DS, Nintendo fans have a busy quarter ahead as Nintendo’s console sales continue to leave competing systems in the dust. Highlights for the DS include My Personal Diary, Hot ‘n’ Cold and My Fashion Studio Paris Collection while Wii console owners can look forward to instant hits like Onechanbara Bikini Zombie Slayers, Burger Island and Sega’s video game interpretation of the classic Martin Lawrence film SONIC and the Black Knight. Seriously though, there are some undoubtedly huge titles lined up for both consoles such as new Pokemon and Grand Theft Auto games for the DS and a new version of DanceDanceRevolution for the Wii. Hit the jump for the complete list with release timing where available and look for Nintendo to keep trouncing the competition for quite a while to come.
