We willen je graag meedelen dat er vanaf nu een bijgewerkte versie van het internetkanaal beschikbaar is.

Deze update bevat een nieuwere versie van Adobe Flash, waardoor er nog meer website-inhoud voor je beschikbaar wordt.

Tot nu toe kon het internetkanaal vanuit het Wii-winkelkanaal worden gedownload voor 500 Wii Points. Omdat Nintendo al zijn klanten wil aanmoedigen vanaf de bank op het internet te surfen, kan het internetkanaal nu gratis worden gedownload.

Voor degenen die het internetkanaal al hebben aangeschaft voor 500 Wii Points, zal er van eind Oktober tot eind december een special aanbod beschikbaar zijn op de Virtual Console. Tijdens deze periode kun je gratis een NES-titel ter waarde van 500 Wii Points downloaden.

Als de precieze periode waarin dit aanbod geldt bekend wordt, krijg je daarvan bericht via het Wii-prikbord. Ook zal er een bericht op de website van Nintendo of Europe worden geplaatst.

Om het nieuwe internetkanaal te downloaden, kies je BEGINNEN rechtsonder in het scherm. Hiermee ga je naar het Wii-winkelkanaal, waar je de software kunt downloaden.
