Wii gets online multiplayer goodies

GameSpy is helping Nintendo develop features for online multiplayer Wii gaming, the companies announced today.

GameSpy will provide middleware for game developers to build “community features, such as friend rosters, advanced matchmaking capabilities and comprehensive rankings data,” the release said.

The software will debut in “Pokemon Battle Revolution,” which goes on sale June 25.

“This partnership will expand our wireless community of players on Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection,” Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime said in the release. “Millions of Nintendo DS users have already logged on using GameSpy’s technology, and now Wii owners will be able to do the same in a fun and easy-to-use environment.”
