USA WiiWare Update: Sandy Beach

It’s time to pop on your trunks, grab your bucket and spade and head for the beach – Konami’s Sandy Beach is now available on the North American WiiWare service! For a mere 500 Wii Points you can experience the joy of constructing your own sandcastle from the comfort of your own tatty armchair.

You can choose to construct the most fantastic sandcastle imaginable or make things a little more interesting by engaging in ‘Crab Battle’ mode. This might sound like you’re involved in deadly combat with itchy underpant-parasites, but it actually gives you the chance to defend your sandcastle from marauding crustaceans. Nasty.

Naturally we’ll have our review up as soon as humanly possible, but for the time being have a gander over the screenshots and keep your powder (or should that be sand?) dry.

If the idea of erecting sand structures leaves you curiously unmoved, we have the lovable Kirby's Dream Land 3 on the Virtual Console to tickle your fancy.
