Dec. 28, 2009
With only a few days left until the end of 2009, Nintendo is already uncorking 10 new games to help you ring in the New Year. Thanks to the ever-expanding WiiWare™ service, you can keep it spooky with a captivating Castlevania title, bulk up sumo-style with Eat! Fat! FIGHT! or customize crazy creatures with RABBIDS LAB. The Virtual Console™ service welcomes the high-flying classic PilotWings™, while a new edition of the timeless pioneer adventure The Oregon Trail® arrives on the Nintendo DSiWare™ service. No matter which of these 10 terrific titles you choose, hoist your Wii Remote™ controller or Nintendo DSi™ stylus and join us in a toast to a fabulous 2010. Cheers!
Castlevania The Adventure ReBirthPublisher: Konami Digital EntertainmentPlayers: 1ESRB Rating: T (Teen) - Animated Blood, Fantasy ViolencePrice: 1,000 Wii Points™Description: Another 100 years have passed since the death of Count Dracula, but his curse has emerged once again within the realms of Transylvania. Play the role of the ultimate gothic hero from the long lineage of vampire hunters, the Belmont clan, and rid the universe of Dracula's legion of darkness and doom. Based on the classic 1989 original Castlevania: The Adventure, this WiiWare version will allow players of a new generation - and older fans - to experience one of the most popular games within the storied Castlevania timeline from a new perspective.
Eat! Fat! FIGHT!Publisher: TECMOPlayers: 1-2ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) - Cartoon Violence, Comic MischiefPrice: 1,000 Wii PointsDescription: Forget about being healthy. Here's a game that celebrates eating, getting fat and fighting. Hold the Wii Remote controller horizontally and tilt it left, right, up or down to perform all kinds of lifts and throws just like in real sumo. There are also hidden moves like suplexes and scrapbusters thrown in for fun. Use all the moves you learn in tournaments around the world to reach the peak of sumo and become a yokozuna. In ONE PLAYER mode, play eating or sparring mini-games to make your wrestler stronger and change his look. You can also use your own Mii™ character's face on your wrestler. In TWO PLAYER mode, take on another person using default wrestlers or the wrestlers that you have created. (Additional accessories are required for two-player mode and are sold separately.) Chow down, bulk up and fight on to become the strongest sumo wrestler ever.
RABBIDS LABPublisher: UbisoftPlayers: 1ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) - Cartoon ViolencePrice: 500 Wii PointsDescription: A raving Rabbid is stuck inside the Wii Remote controller. Come play with him. First, try interacting with him by moving the Wii Remote or pressing the buttons and seeing how much he loves it. Once you've gotten to know the crazy guy, it's time to change his appearance in the Lab. Mess with his head and place seasonal accessories on him, or change his look entirely with the painting module. When you've made your raving Rabbid completely unique, you can take a photo and send it in a Wii™ message to show your Wii Friends (broadband Internet connection required).
The Magic ObeliskPublisher: GAME ARTS Co., Ltd.Players: 1ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) - Comic MischiefPrice: 500 Wii PointsDescription: The Magic Obelisk is an action-adventure game in which you become Popo, a light spirit. Your mission is to guide Lukus, a tree spirit, to each stage's goal while moving only within the shadow. You can help him do this by shining your light near the mysterious magic obelisks, allowing you to create and connect shadows to solve tricks and gimmicks along the way. Join Lukus as he travels through a light-filled realm filled with quirky creatures and spirits, trying to find the perfect spot to become a tree. Experience meaningful encounters and partings, climb hills, cross rivers and traverse a vast desert on your way to the very edge of the world.
PilotWingsOriginal platform: Super NES™Publisher: NintendoPlayers: 1ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) - Mild ViolencePrice: 800 Wii PointsDescription: Join the Flight Club to take to the skies and experience a variety of aerial activities. Take off and pilot a biplane through rings along a predetermined flight path, or drift serenely in a hang glider, catching thermal currents to gain altitude. In either case, just be sure to stick the landing. Looking for more speed? Strap on the rocket belt to blast your way around an obstacle course. If that's not enough, reach maximum velocity as you tackle a skydiving lesson at 3,800 feet. Complete specific objectives within a set time limit to score points (and maybe even a bonus chance) and obtain certification in eight different lessons. Your goals will become more challenging, and weather conditions will make controlling your vehicle more difficult as you progress. If you succeed, you will be rewarded with the opportunity to pilot an attack helicopter on a daring rescue mission. It's time to earn your wings.
The Oregon TrailPublisher: GameloftPlayers: 1ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) - Comic Mischief, Mild Cartoon Violence, Use of TobaccoPrice: 800 Nintendo DSi Points™Description: Westward, ho! Your favorite pioneering adventure game takes you on an exciting, historic, side-scrolling adventure with your Nintendo DSi™ system. Take the Oregon Trail experience further than ever before with all of the decision-making and problem-solving fun of the original game plus additional challenges. Leave your mark on America's history. Take a picture of yourself at each landmark with the Nintendo DSi system's built-in camera. You'll have your portrait and party's name printed in the Daily Oregon Trail newspaper in the game. Play eight skill-based mini-games that will impact your resources: Hunting, Fishing, River Crossing, Rafting, Wagon Repairing, Telegraph, Berry Picking and Gold Panning. Random events faced by real pioneers - such as disease, bandits and hitchhikers - and side missions add more excitement to your westward trek.
SUDOKU SENSEIPublisher: Hudson EntertainmentPlayers: 1ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)Price: 500 Nintendo DSi PointsDescription: Introducing 100 “Super Hard Puzzles” for the hardened sudoku veteran. All puzzles are skillfully designed for a level of satisfaction that computer-generated puzzles just can't offer. You can play through puzzles to learn about rules and controls in Tutorials mode. Other handy features include Write Mode and Temp Number for an easier, more enjoyable sudoku experience.
Glow ArtisanPublisher: Powerhead GamesPlayers: 1-2ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)Price: 500 Nintendo DSi PointsDescription: Solve mind-bending puzzles in this unique and colorful game.

Master of Illusion™ Express: Psychic CameraPublisher: NintendoPlayers: 1ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)Price: 200 Nintendo DSi PointsDescription: Master of Illusion Express titles include mind-boggling magic tricks that you perform with your Nintendo DSi system. Learn the illusions, practice them and amaze your friends. Your audience will never look at your Nintendo DSi system the same way again after Master of Illusion Express: Psychic Camera proves that it has psychic powers. Astound others by taking their picture and revealing an item (such as a card, picture, letter or number) that they're thinking about.
Arcade Hoops BasketballPublisher: Skyworks Interactive, Inc.Players: 1ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)Price: 200 Nintendo DSi PointsDescription: From Skyworks comes the slickest basketball game for the Nintendo DSi system. See how many baskets you can sink in a fast-moving 45 seconds, using only your stylus and, of course, your lightning-fast hand-eye coordination. Arcade Hoops features your choice of three rockin' soundtracks, state-of-the-art 3-D graphics and thrilling, high-speed game play for the most fun possible in under a minute. Advanced hoopsters can move on to the progressive level, where a moving basket provides an additional challenge - plus the chance to rack up even more points. For the real pros, there's 3 Point mode, where speed and accuracy are a must as you shoot “threes” from downtown.
Nintendo adds new titles to the Nintendo DSi Shop and the Wii Shop Channel at 9 a.m. Pacific time on Mondays. Users with broadband Internet access can redeem Wii Points or Nintendo DSi Points to download the games. Wii Points can be purchased in the Wii Shop Channel.

Magic Obelisk could be interesting, as well...

Woot! Definitely looking forward to getting Pilotwings on VC and especially Castlevania The Adventure ReBirth and The Magic Obelisk on WiiWare. Great, great update.

Not a bad couple of weeks for North America, Europe is still waiting for Super Mario Kart.

Glow Artisan sounds nice for DSiWare. I think I'll pass on SENSEI, Arcade hoops and Master of Illusion Express, though.

Is this the end of the two VC games a week for America?
Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.
I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

Europe has a lot to catch up on wiiware. Excitebike, Bit Trip Void & now Castlevania. Hopefully 1 game each week for the next 3 weeks would be nice or one massive update!!

That's OK if it is. My wallet needs a rest for a while.
It looks like Vampire hunting season has started

Until next week. LOL. I think this will be the last huge update for a while, back to 1-1-1 updates for a couple months. At least that's what I think.
The word "Gem" is overused.

NO!!! No more 1-1-1 updates!!!!! DSiWare and WiiWare should atleast be getting 2 or 3 per week!!! I don't want to return to those dark sad days of only 3 games per week.
I love rpgs and platformers the most... racing games are good too!I have a black dsi and a blue 3DS. :D"Sometimes we put up walls, not to keep people out, but rather to see who will take the time to break them down."3DS friend code: 3695 0029 5257

I'm with 20thPaul on this one. Return to dark, dreary days=BAD! There's also no point in it, since we KNOW Nintendo's got a lot of games lined up for release as it is. Speaking of which, I bet Squenix is PISSED now that FFIV didn't hit before year's end like they announced it would SIX MONTHS AGO. If Nintendo causes them to stop supporting VC by pulling crap like this, I am going to be VERY upset.
My Backloggery Not in common use, but I update with relevant friend codes. Look them up there.

I shouldn't have spent those points on Dragon's Lair, I was looking forward to Oregon Trail
14. Posted: Mon 28th Dec 2009 14:54 GMT
Sweet update! I honestly didn't expect Castlevania today but I have exactly 1000 points waiting to be spent on it. Pilotwings is also a welcome addition. As for there only being one VC title, I kind of expected that to happen after the holidays were over. We've caught up to Europe on the important stuff and hopefully they'll get a chance to catch up to us, although I fully expect a slew of imports to come to that region fairly soon, if not starting this Friday. I'd like to see more balance between North America and Europe as far as high profile VC releases are concerned, in 2010.
