Nintendo's addition of SD memory card play to the Nintendo Wii has done amazing things for WiiWare developers, with Telltale announcing that sales of their Strong Bad series have doubled since the GDC announcement.


Those looking for proof that a solution to Wii storage limits was sorely needed by both developers and customers need look no further than the Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People series from Telltale Games. The company today announces that sales of the WiiWare version of the adventure game series have more than doubled since Nintendo gave players the ability to run games from SD memory cards during the Game Developers Conference in March.

"Nintendo's new solution really opens the door for players to add to their collection of downloadable games, which is critical for a series with multiple installments," says Telltale CEO Dan Connors. "This is a major step forward for episodic gaming. We're looking forward to even greater success on WiiWare with Strong Bad, as well as other projects."

In the words of Mr. Bad himself, "Holy crap!"



Wow! That came out of left field for me! You'd think that all WiiWare game sales, or VC game sales would increase with this SD card upgrade. Maybe they did! If so, I'm sure Nintendo will have their infamous corporate gloating spree that they have with everything they do!!

But Telltale deserves to gloat too! But don't gloat too much! You guys need to get to work on Strongbad: Season 2, Sam & Max: Season 3, and Wallace and Gromit!
