Wii MotionPlus Missing From Nintendo's European Spring Schedule

Last month, Nintendo announced its Spring titles for the Nintendo DS and the Wii. This month, Nintendo is doing the same for Europe.

While Nintendo's German language release confirms stuff we know (DSi and Rhythm Heaven release dates), it has these highlights:

Pokémon Platinum May 22
Pikmin 2 (Wii Re-release) April 24
Punch Out! May
Donkey Kong Jungle Beat (Wii Re-Release) June

For comparison's sake, Punch Out! hits May 18 in North America, Jungle Beat is slated for May 4 and Pikmin 2 was released on March 9. The release date for Pokémon Platinum is the same for North America and Europe.

The European Spring announcement from Nintendo mentions nothing of Wii Sports Resort or the Wii MotionPlus Wii Remote add-on. Both are believed to be behind schedule — a claim Nintendo has refuted on http://kotaku.com/5167228/nintendo-wii-motion-plus-not-delayeda technicality.

The release also once again confirms that Wii Points are now called Nintendo Points.
