Wii and DS release dates for Q1 2011

Kirby your enthusiasm.

Look at all these games Nintendo has prepared for Wii and DS - and they'll all be released before the end of March (Q1 2011).

There are some absolute belters! Wow it's Peppa Pig Theme Park Fun! Gosh it's National Geographic Challenge! Shoot me it's Bibi & Tina - Jump & Ride!

Actually, star billing goes to Pokemon Black and White. Why? Well, selling 5.26 million copies from mid-September to the end of December, in Japan alone, says something.

That's out on 4th March, along with some DS hardware bundles.

What else to look for? Kirby's Epic Yarn and de Blob 2 on Wii, both arriving 25th February. There's also THQ's intriguing uDraw tablet for Wii. Will it work? Does anyone actually want it? We'll know when it's released sometime this quarter.

Nintendo's biggest Q1 2011 release, without a shadow of a doubt, will be the 3DS. It arrives on 25th March and, judging by the wild success of DS, is expected to rewrite the record books.

uDraw: it's an order.
