Animal Crossing Wii, Kirby Wii Due in 2008

The long-rumored Wii edition of Animal Crossing will hit Japan this year, according to financial documents released by Nintendo of Japan.

Other Wii titles listed in the document for a Japanese 2008 release include Wii Music, a new Kirby title, Disaster: Day of Crisis, Super Mario Stadium Family Baseball, and Minna no Joushikiryoku Terebi, which is roughly translated as Everyone's Common Knowledge Television.

While the document did not specify anything in the way of North American and European releases of the above titles, it did reaffirm Nintendo's plans for a worldwide spring release of Mario Kart Wii.

However, given that both the North American and European lists contained little in the way of titles expected within the general 2008 timeframe, it is still quite possible that the games may arrive in those territories before the year's end.

      At least from what I've read if a new Kid Icarus game is being made it's not being developed by Nintendo but by some other company so maybe that's why it's absent from the list?
