Nintendo announce WiiSpeak channel

Nintendo just announced the WiiSpeak Channel.

Launching this November, the channel allows 4-way private chats for Wii users. It remains to be seen whether the WiiSpeak channel will be able to run in the background whilst you play Wii games. We doubt it, but it’d be a nice feature.

If you buy the WiiSpeak microphone, you’ll be given a key which will allow you to download the channel free of charge. This would suggest that the Channel will be available to purchase, allowing for other USB mics to be used. This remains to be confirmed.

Users select their Miis for talking Online, and the avatar’s mouth moves accordingly to the words you speak.

Users can also send each other voice messages, and record audio captions for their stored photos. This would suggest some kind of photo sharing feature.
