Selects

The Nintendo Selects Range has already confirmed its launch titles to be Twilight Princess, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Mario Super Sluggers and Wii Sports in the US. Over in Europe the four starters are Animal Crossing, Mario Super Sluggers, WarioWare: Smooth Moves and Mario Strikers Charged Football. The Selects range has potential, and I’m hoping it moves on to some more serious titles, especially with Europe focusing solely on the party, sports and social games.

Wii MMGN has posted their 10 games that must come to the selects range, and I pretty much agree with them as a minimum. Come inside for their suggestions and some additions of my own. As always, let us know what discounted titles you want to see.

  • Twilight Princess
  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl
  • Super Mario Galaxy
  • New Super Mario Bros. Wii
  • Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
  • Resident Evil 4
  • Wii Sports Resort
  • Super Paper Mario
  • No More Heroes
  • Just Dance 2

They also list some titles that should make the list once they have aged a little more:

  • Goldeneye 007
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns
  • Super Mario Galaxy 2
  • Mario Kart Wii
  • Metroid: Other M
  • Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars
  • Monster Hunter Tri

Their lists are pretty good overall. I have to say a big yes to them. While Twilight Princess is confirmed for the US, it should really also be in Europe, and elsewhere if Nintendo selects makes it to Australia, and Japan. Unity across regions is really another thing they should go for, so Wii Sports and like should also be in Europe. For Mario Galaxy, they suggest only the first one, forcing people to pay full price for the sequel, but I would’ve included Galaxy 2 on the list myself.

Mario Kart definitely should be fairly soon given that it comes bundled with the console these days. Finally to add some suggestions of my own to my list, the fantastic game that is Kirby’s Epic Yarn should eventually be on there, given this is sort of the “must-have” range. Some of the other “Wii” titles like Wii Music or Wii Play (1 and 2) also could make it. Despite my personal gripes with the game, Epic Mickey may be worthy. Depending on how long this range of games is going to last, but if its into the lifetime of Project Café, then I’d also hope for some Skyward Sword. What do you think should be in the Nintendo Selects range?
