Barely have we made our way through the Wii launch titles when Ninty puts on its Santa hat and drops off a list of games due for release in the New Year.First to appear in 2007 will be mini-gamer Wario Ware: Smooth Moves (pictured) including a hitherto unexplored action for the Wii remote – turning it on its side and pumping it up and down to inflate a balloon. Intriguing.Playfully teasing our Wii-addled minds is Kororinpa – a Screwball Scramble, Wiimote-controlled combo of Micro Machines meets Marble Madness. That one rolls into town in February.Then strolling towards the green come March will be Tiger Woods PGA TOUR (watch that lamp shade) alongside N64/Game Cube favourite Mario Party, now in its eighth incarnation.In all 24 new titles will be hitting the shops by March.
