On the same day, Nintendo will introduce a Nintendo Selects budget-price Wii game range. Titles cost 19.99 ($19.99).

The initial line-up varies slightly in the US and Europe. In Europe the first Nintendo Selects games are Wii Sports, WarioWare: Smooth Moves, Mario Strikers Charged Football and Animal Crossing: Let's Go to the City.

In the US, the first Nintendo Selects games are The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Animal Crossing: Let's Go to the City, Mario Super Sluggers and Wii Sports.
