Finally Campaigning for Nintendo Downloads

on November 16, 2009 12:11 PM

Finally some lateral movement from Nintendo to boost downloads of WiiWare titles. Wii owners will be able to download WiiWare demos this week, for five of its titles. Demos for BIT.TRIP BEAT, FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: My Life as a Darklord, NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits, World of Goo and the newly released Pokémon Rumble, will all give players the chance to try them out before making the leap and purchasing the full version. Maybe Nintendo has realized that the lack of campaigning for their downloadable titles has hurt them. Now Nintendo just needs to get the word out that there besides the use of websites like this. Perhaps some advertising? maybe commercials? I know the millions of readers on is not enough, they need more.
