Hello, I got a question for the European gamers. Could you please take a look on your European DSi's data management and tell me the block-size of the following games?

O Shantae: Risky's Revenge (129)
O Mighty Flip Champ (54)
O Mighty Milky Way (88)
O DodoGo! (126)
O Flipper (60)
O Flipper 2: Flush the Goldfish (67)
O Mr.Driller: Drill till you drop (58)
O Tetris Party Live (93)
O Aura-Aura Climber (47)
O Bird&Beans / Pyoro (12)
O Bird&Bombs / Spotto! (26)

Furthermore I would like to ask if somebody knows about the EU-release plans for CaveStory, EscapeeGo!, ProJumper! and Gaia'sMoon.
I just read an articlte that Nicalis failed its submission for a Europe release of CaveStory but will try again this month.
But what about EscapeeGo!? Gevo Entertainment's site is down for quite some time. (at least I cannot enter it) And the EscapeeGo!-Facebook page has not been updated for months.

Bird & Bombs: 26 blocks
Pyoro: 12 blocks
I think they won't release DSIware Cave Story, as it will hurt Cave Story 3D sales.

Here's what I got according for most of the games's block sizes:
Shantae: Risky's Revenge - 128
Mighty Flip Champs - 48
Mighty Milky Way - 88
DodoGo! - 125
Flipper - 59
Mr. Driller: Drill till you Drop - 57
Tetris Party Live - 91
Aura-Aura Climber - 38
Bird & Beans/Pyoro - 11
Birds & Bombs/Spotto! - 22

Note: These were taken from my North American copies of the games (and the Wikipedia page for North American DSiWare releases, so they may not be entirely accurate, but they should give you a fairly decent estimate of how much room they take up).

If you're concerned about there not being enough room in your DSi or 3DS's System Memory to hold all of these games, know that you can copy the game's data to an SD card, and the game saves (provided you copied it to your SD card just before deleting it from your System Memory) will transfer as well, so you don't have to worry about losing progress if you remove the game from your DSi or 3DS's System Memory.

That's what I thought. But maybe Nicalis considers the DSiWare-version as a "gateway drug" for people who are yet not sure if they shall pay for a retail game and a good way reach players that do not own a 3DS.
http://www.joystiq.com/2012/01/12/cave-story-dsiware-still-he... <-- That is a pretty official announcement.

I already do know the wikipedia page. That's why I asked people to check their European DSis. And as you can see by CorporalPegasus's post they are different.

Furthermore It seems the wikipedia list is not the most reliable source.
Pyoro and Bird&Beans (though being the same game) are separate entries
in this list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_DSiWare_games_%28PAL_reg... with different sizes as well...

@bossmank ... as I posted already, the US-numbers are already available. I want to know the EU-numbers. They are different.

as i already said i knew they wouldn't be any help, but i might as well post them since i was here. you could have just ignored my post instead of making a pointless comment on it. but go right ahead, that's your time not mine.

@Fu-Sheng - Just for future reference, "tagging" someone in these forums (aka adding an @ before their name) does nothing to notify them or bring attention to them; it's mostly to respond to someone without quoting what they said directly. They still have to come here by their own volition and respond. You could try Chat and see if someone's in there who could help you, but other than that, there's really nothing you can do.

Exactly.

Oh thanks for the info. (^_^) I am new to this forum and don't understand how to contact a certain person, as there is no "pm"-button. So i hoped that the @ would help. I will edit the post.

Hello Dark-insanity. Do you use a European DSi? Just asking as your profile says you live in Canada.

No not much, but I need to know the difference. So I hope some European DSi-owner can tell me the block-size as well. But thanks anyway! (^_^)

Edit: List is complete. Thanks for the help.
