Confirmed UK Wii launch list

Nintendo confirms to CVG Brits will get 27 Wii games and 31 Virtual console games this December

Yes, it's a couple less than the US - they're getting Excite Truck and Trauma Centre this year, while we'll have to wait until after Christmas.

But we're getting Wii Play on Wii and Donkey Kong Country on the Virtual Console, which they aren't, so we don't feel completely done over.

Wii games will cost £34.99 and £39.99, depending on the title and all but three of them (Impossible Mission, Leaderboard Golf and Tennis Masters) will be out on December 8.

Virtual console games will be priced depending on the console from which they originate. NES games will cost 500 Wii points (approximately £3), Turbografx games are 600 points (approximately £4), SNES games will be 800 points (that's about £5) and N64 games 1000 points (around £8).

Enough chatter, though. The list of Nintendo love is below. Read it and get very excited. It's going to be a great Christmas.
