The WiiWare service launched in Japan yesterday and along with it a Mario title. The latest incarnation of the Dr. Mario series, Dr. Mario Virus Buster is available on the service there for 1,000 Wii Points. Apparently people who have the full version of the game can send demos to their friends via the process below... (More information on this from Nintendo World Report)
Currently, this game is dubbed TBA 2008 for North America. To make things a tad bit simpler, WiiFolder posted their tour of the game (narrator is Josh and, of course this is an English version!).

(Love that image). GAME retailers are offering everyone a preview of Mario Kart Wii on April 5 and are also launching the Mario Kart Grand Wii competition taking place around the United Kingdom. Winners of each of the 30 stories will receive an all expense paid trip to Mercedes World, Brooklands for the official game launch party and a chance to win a VW Mario-themed Beetle! More information (and Beetle pic) here. Good luck to whoever enters.

Our awesome plumber has decided to write an open-letter to Nintendo, complaining about his job.
Dear Nintendo,Of course this wasn't really Mario but this was submitted to Digg earlier today. I don't know about you but the whole "Die in a Fire" line sounds corny...

There have been reports that some Brawl copies aren't working and players are receiving disc reading errors. Nintendo has explained these errors occur because the game disc is double layered (and high capacity) and the Wii is having trouble reading the disc.
Nintendo has set up a page in which people whom experience this error can use and have the chance to get their disc repaired. Here's the link.
