Namco Bandai will be the first publisher to charge Wii owners to download in-game content.

Its word-based puzzle game Mojipittan will offer new stages and items in return for your hard earned cash, according to Japanese magazine Famitsu - translated by IGN.

So far it is a Japan-only phenomena, with the game set to launch on the WiiWare (Wii Software) service in March next year.

Versions of the game have already been available on PSP, DS and PS2 and sold very well, with head-to-head online battles planned to enrich the Wii experience.

We will keep you posted if and when any European details emerge, but it seems unlikely they will.
