They weren’t there... then they were... then they were gone again... and now they are coming back...
You may notice that demo versions of numerous WiiWare
games have been popping up on the Nintendo Shop Channel. Nintendo tried promoting the Shop Channel through the use of demos earlier this year but ceased offering them after only a few months. Well, I guess they want to try it again. Nintendo has not made an official statement regarding their availability, but numerous outlets and developers are reporting that this may only last throughout the holiday season as a means of promotion for the biggest shopping season of the year.
So, at least for the time being, be sure to check the Wii Shop Channel for some free samples of the program’s offerings... and keep an eye out for more as the holiday season progresses.
