The Wii News Channel–Great for You and Your Kids!

The Nintendo Will is known for its excellent interactive gaming capabilities. However, it should also be noted that Nintendo has created an amazing way to keep you in touch with the latest headlines.

It’s called the News Channel, and it features the latest headlines on the following topics:

  • National News
  • International News
  • Sports
  • Business
  • Science/Health
  • Arts/Entertainment
  • Technology

The News Channel even has a slide show complete with a global map. The headlines scroll across the bottom of your screen, and the map automatically shifts to the city, state, or country from where the article subject originates.

As I was viewing today’s slideshow, the Associated Press headline read:  “Intel Unveils Chip at Taiwan Tech Show” and the map seamlessly shifted from the United States to Taiwan.  For the record, it was a very interesting story.

If you have kids that are not crazy about current events, this just might peak their interest.  If you’re looking to catch up on the latest headlines before it hits your newspaper, the Wii News Channel is where your Mii should be.
