Nintendo Korea headlines
Nintendo Korea has launched its official website ahead of an anticipated May 5 launch for Wii in the country. There’s not much to look at so far apart from pictures of Wiis and some Korean text, but at least it shows it’s happening, innit.
According to this, Nintendo Korea is to hold a press conference in Seoul on April 14, at which the company is expected to announce a release date for Wii in the country. As previously reported, Wii is expected to launch in South Korea either on or before Children’s Day, a holiday held on May 5.
