Speaking to videogaming247, Frontier head David Braben has confirmed that the company’s just-announced project, LostWinds, will be released alongside Nintendo’s WiiWare download service.

“It’s a WiiWare launch title,” he said. “Yes, we do have [an idea of when it’s coming out], but if you want release dates for WiiWare I would talk directly to Nintendo. We can’t give out that information other than say we’re planning to be a WiiWare launch title.”

Braben added, “Just on that point: Nintendo are very sensitive about it.”

WiiWare was apparently confirmed for a May 12 release date in the US today. We’re still waiting for a European launch date for the service.
