Unstoppable video game publisher Electronic Arts announced today that no fewer than six brand new, custom-built titles are coming to Wii. Madden NFL and Need for Speed Carbon we already knew about, but Harry Potter, The Godfather, Tiger Woods PGA Tour and SSX round out the EA lineup, with more games to come.
The company's dedicated Wii development team will be handling all six titles, attempting to keep the basics of each intact while implementing unique Wii features. Madden NFL, especially,

Following our Call of Duty 3 first-look from yesterday, we've managed to get hold of some screenshots of the Wii version of Activision's World War II shooter.
Treyarch will be tailoring the latest in the Call of Duty series to make use of Wii's motion sensing controller, but when we spoke to an Activision representative last week he wasn't too clear of just how.
Looking at the screens, however (see the images tab for more), is seems as though the remote will be used to
GameCube classic Eternal Darkness almost certainly has a sequel on the way, according to Denis Dyack, director of developer Silicon Knights.
Dyack has revealed in his blog that the three-game approach the team took to the forthcoming Xbox 360 game Too Human was always a possibility for Eternal Darkness. Every time the team designs a game, he says, it is intended to tell a story within a larger universe and that other stories are still there to be told.
This means that Too Human's - and now
Ubisoft delivered another little video for Rayman Raving Rabbids, and we've begun to detect a theme here. The third in their series of "Bunnies can't..." shorts, this episode depicts a Raving Rabbid bunny attempting to play with fireworks with decidedly mixed results. While these clips are entertaining, we'd still like to see more actual gameplay in them.
Still, we eagerly await future installments in this series, because we're hoping that they'll include: Bunnies can't perform colonoscopies,
It's the game that boasts the "largest superhero alliance ever," and we've got the latest shots and a trailer of action RPG Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. The horde of heroes will land this fall on PS2, PS3, PSP, Xbox, Xbox 360, PC, Wii and GBA. This batch of shots is from the Xbox 360, but we're hoping to snag some from the other platforms soon.
The game allows you to hand pick a team of four superheroes from a total of 20 playable Marvel characters, then take on the united might of the Marvel
First-person killathon Red Steel is surely the highest profile, non-Nintendo-developed game that's winging its way to Wii, and we've successfully snagged a handful of screens that show both blade and black steel being wielded.
Red Steel is a tale of bloody retribution that pitches players against the formidable might of Japan's feared crime syndicate, the

Nintendo's Wii console is predicted to launch in late September, nearly two months before the previously believed November release and the launch of Sony's PlayStation 3.
The technology of Wii is likely to be a crucial reason for Nintendo's motion-sensitive-controlled console making such a jump in schedule. "Wii is a simpler box to make" than PS3, according to American technology analyst PJ McNealy.
This leap in Wii's launch date has been leaked by expectant 'industry
It's common practice to release a shiny new gaming console as close to December as possible, but Wii could possibly be coming as soon as September if industry talk is to be believed. An article on CNNMoney.com says an analyst's notes suggest Wii hardware is most likely already in production and could arrive well before the PlayStation 3's November 17 release date.
If this is true, the drought of product that plagued the Xbox 360 last season (and could affect the PS3 this year) might be
Need for Speed Carbon, the latest in publisher EA's street-racing series, will not be playable online for Nintendo's new console, Wii.
NFS Carbon will support online play for the PS2, Xbox, PS3 and 360, but won't be available to Wii owners, according to Game Informer magazine.
It has also come to light that Carbon will not make use the motion sensing capabilities of either the Wii remote or the PS3 "tilt" controller. EA apparently has concerns over gamer fatigue, what with will all the
Publisher Activision is giving gamers and comic fans a chance to be part of its forthcoming superhero action-RPG Marvel: Ultimate Alliance as the voice of one of the in-game characters.
Previously Activision held online auditions for fans to become the voice of weedy Hulk alter-ego Bruce Banner. The response was so overwhelming that it's decided to extend the competition to allow fans to try out for the voice of the Sub-Mariner Namor. We reckon you should go for fishy and
