Japanese Wii Software Pricing Details

Despite what Sony would like us all to believe, there is another console on the way in November. And Nintendo and a bunch of friendly third-parties just recently announced a set of prices for upcoming Wii titles. As it turns out, the Japanese will be paying less for their games.

The following list includes 5% consumption tax, and are listed in order from the most expensive to the least:

  • Necronesia (Spike): 7140 yen
  • Bleach Wii (Sega): 7140 yen
  • Zelda: Twilight Princess (Nintendo): 6800 yen
  • Red Steel (Ubisoft): 6800 yen
  • Sengoku Musou Wave (aka Samurai Spirits, Koei): 6090 yen
  • Furu Furu Paaku (Taito): 6090 yen
  • GT Pro Series (MTO): 6090 yen
  • Elebits (Konami): 6090 yen
  • Caduceus Z (aka Trauma Center, Atlus): 6090 yen
  • Swing Golf Panya (Tecmo): 6090 yen
  • Wing Island (Hudson): 6090 yen
  • SD Gundam (Bandai Namco): 6090 yen
  • Crayon Shin Chan (Banpresto): 6090 yen
  • Odoru Made in Wario (aka Wario Ware, Nintendo): 5800 yen
  • Pokemon Battle Revolution (Pokemon): 5800 yen
  • Ennichi no Tatsujin (Bandai Namco): 5040 yen
  • Mahjong Taikai Wii (Koei): 5040 yen
  • Hajimete no Wii (Nintendo): 4800 yen
  • Wii Sports (Nintendo): 4800 yen

The typical PS2 currently costs 6,800 yen; with tax, 7,140 yen, and only four Wii titles gotten that high so far. The average price of Wii games (in Japan, at least) appears to be about 1,000 yen less, or about 5,800 yen. You're looking at three ranges of pricing there, with most games falling in the middle somewhere, so all this should come as more good news for prospective Japanese Wii owners.
