This Week’s Imports: AKB48 Now On Wii Thanks To Nintendo

 

For those of you who don’t know, AKB48 is that craaazy 48 girl band group.

AKB48 is coming to Wii as part of the game, Just Dance Wii. Nintendo licensed Ubisoft’s game and localized it with J-Pop like “Heavy Rotation”, and “Renai Revolution 21” from Morning Musume, as well as “Sexy Girl” from Namie Amuro. Just Dance has sold millions in the west. Now, what we’re thinking is, will Nintendo of Japan’s marketing might carry the same weight in Japan?

A number of games has also debuted in North America this week too, including Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, and Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny.
