By most accounts, Nintendo‘s only failure with the Wii console this holiday season was not being able to get enough units to Wii-hungry retailers. Now, the company wants to keep Wii enthusiasm afloat, so it’s announced a series of new and classic gaming titles which are due to become available for the Wii during the first quarter of 2007.

“Our tremendous worldwide launch shows people, from experienced players to non-players, are hungry for the kinds of entertainment only Wii provides,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo America. “Wii hardware production continues full bore, and every week we’re delivering more incredible content to further expand the experience.”

New titles include Wii Play, which follows in the same path as Wii Sports (bundled with the consoles in North America) by offering nine new games like Billiards and Fishing and Shooting Range; Wii Play will come bundled with a Wii Remote to emphasize the multiplayer fun available to Wii owners.

The Nintendo Wii title push for the first quarter of 2007 includes:

Date Title (Publisher)
Feb. 14 Wii Play with Wii Remote (Nintendo)
March 27 Disney’s Meet the Robinsons (Buena Vista)
March Bust-A-Move Bash (Majesco)
March Prince of Persia Rival Swords (Ubisoft)
March TMNT – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Ubisoft)
March Bionicle Heroes (Eidos)
March Blazing Angels Squadrons of WWII (Ubisoft)
Q1 Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 (EA)
Q1 SSX Blur (EA)
Q1 The Godfather Blackhand Edition (EA)
Q1 Medal of Honor Vanguard (EA)
Q1 Sonic and the Secret Rings (Sega)

Nintendo also continues to expand titles available via the Wii Virtual Console, which is currently up to 43 titles with the release of Zelda: A Link to the Past from the NE game sytem; Nintendo will release gamer favorite Mario Cart 64 next week.
