Nintendo president Satoru Iwata says that Nintendo is planning to test downloadable demos of some WiiWare games, a program that should kick off—in Japan at least—later this month.

That's according to IGN's translation of the oft-cited investor Q&A that Iwata and Shigeru Miyamoto dropped minor details at last week—nuggets of news that range from Miyamoto's acquisition of a real life cat, Wii MotionPlus support in the next Legend of Zelda game for the Wii, a cooling Wii market, and the possibility of a 3G-enabled Nintendo DS in the future.

Hey, demos are a good idea, just like cat ownership and 3G devices. Maybe you'll find the ArtStyle games, like Cubello up there, tons of fun. And maybe you'll reconsider that purchase of Sexy Poker or Major League Eating: The Game, despite both sounding like excellent fodder for WiiWare games.
