DS-x2 is reporting that Nintendo will be releasing a “second-version” of the news channel that will update more specific European news.  Right now, the news on the channel is generated by the Associated Press (AP).  Nintendo is planning on more Euro-centric news later in the year.  Here’s the quote from DS-x2:

Today, we received word from Nintendo on their mysterious message delivered to all Wii owners late last week. The original message read: “Today we present the News Channel, which allows you to scan the globe for the latest headlines! Please bear in mind that this is only the first version of the News Channel launching in Europe, but the second version will be coming soon. We thank you for your patience, and hope you will enjoy getting the news from around the world with your Wii.

The news is currently offered is covered by Associated Press. Nintendo BeNeLux (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxemburg) states that the second version, delivered later this year, will feature news aimed more at the European audience.

Sounds great for our fellow Nintendo fans in Europe!
