Nintendo of America Conference

I just got out of class and have been looking for some information on the NOA Conference giving a few hours ago, and thus far, this is the new information I have found:

Updated by JDW at 2:58 p.m.

Nintendo DS
- DSi coming to North America "well into" 2009, so no time soon most likely.
- Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon is remake of the first FE game and is due out in the first half of 2009
- Mario and Luigi 3 confirmed for 2009 and features the ability to play as Bowser
- Two new Brain Age titles for DSiWare

- Sin and Punishment 2 coming to North America in 2009
- Wii Speak Channel, which will allow you to speak with up to 4 groups at once, where you can send voice and photo messages to friends

Nintendo of America
-Club Nintendo coming to North America by year's end

So yeah, nothing too special, aside from a DSi release "date" and Club Nintendo, which is super exciting. I hope it is retroactive, meaning that my 90 games will allow for some points, *crosses fingers*

Also, they didn't mention the Gamecube remakes, which are retooled to work with Wii controls, which would be perfect for Pikmin, so not sure if those are coming state-side.
