Wii Speak Channel gets date

Out same day as Animal Crossing.

Nintendo has said the Wii Speak Channel will be available in Europe from 5th December - the same day Animal Crossing: Let's Go to the City.

The service will be free, but you'll need an internet connection and the Wii Speak microphone, obviously. And for the moment, the only way to get said microphone is as part of a bundle with Animal Crossing.

The Wii Speak Channel lets four people chat or share pictures and text messages after Friends Codes have been swapped. Because this makes it safe. Is it safe?

Miis will also join in, and move their mouths to replicate words picked up by the microphone, which should be interesting.

Retailers are yet to set a price the Wii Speak Animal Crossing: Let's Go to the City bundle. We'll let you know when they do.
