Japanese Wii gets DS downloads

No Euro plans yet.

Nintendo has launched a new Wii channel in Japan that allows people to download demos of DS games.

As promised last month, the new channel also has other content like Wii trailers and a feedback form so you can send Nintendo love-notes.

Except, for now at least, the channel is only up and running in Japan, with Nintendo UK pointing out to us today that it has "not announced plans for a European roll-out at this time".

All of which means you'll just have to gawp at screenshots on the official website until someone does.

Editupdate: Or you could watch the video Wired dug up. They are so handsome.
