USA WiiWare Update: Maboshi's Arcade and Pool Revolution: Cue Sports
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
The final WiiWare update of the year doesn't bring anything truly new to the table - Both new WiiWare games today have already been released in Europe. Still, who cares when both of them are good games?
The wait is finally over - After exactly 4 months, Maboshi's Arcade (Known in Europe as MaBoShi: The Three Shape Arcade) is finally released in the US! In this strange yet wonderful game, you can pick one of three unique games and try to set a high score. The catch is that two more games will be played next to yours by the AI or by other humans - And the games will actually affect each other! We thought it was highly enjoyable, so check it out! If you still need more convincing then you can check out our exclusive interview which was a two part series! It makes for a very interesting read. For just 800 Wii points you will get your monies worth with this game.
Today's other game will probably appeal to less people - Pool Revolution: Cue Sports, released about a month ago in Europe as Cue Sports: Snooker Vs. Billiards. It is, as the name implies, a pool simulator. Although we already have a billiards game on WiiWare in the form of Midnight Pool, this one might interest you more - It has Wi-Fi! We thought it was decent, but nothing to really get excited over. In Europe this costs 800 Wii points so you are really getting a bargain in North America for just 500 Wii points.
That's it for this year! On VC, later today you will be able to grab Zoda's Revenge: StarTropics II, the sequel to StarTropics. It's an excellent little game, though it doesn't quite surpass the original.
