@fkusumot: Card Hero DS, Fire Emblem Remake, Disaster: DoC, Blue Dragon Plus, Kirby Superstar Deluxe, Pokemon Platinum and Captain Rainbow are already finished.

Wii Music is probably already finished by now, there's 3 weeks left until release.
AC:CF could be very near completion, Wii Sports: Resort not so much.

Atm Nintendo is only working on Wii Sports: Resort.

24 teams, just 1 game... sucks.

Did you read the first line of my post? Feel free to update the list of superior format because obviously I didn't.

Have you been sleeping under a rock for a while or something..?

Miyamoto did say they were working on Pikmin, and the Zelda/Mario teams were working on games (Zelda/Mario? ;)). Anyways, they're probably not just doing nothing, but we will see what the future brings..

Me wants F-Zero.



@fk: My bad, still, good for others too see.
