Nintendo Download: 30th June - 1st July 2009 (JAPAN)
Posted by Sean Aaron
An unusually light release week for Japan with 1 WiiWare, 2 Virtual Console and 1 DSiWare release.
After weeks of mass software dowloading we see a release week that would look at home in PAL territories or North America -- maybe it's going to be Japan's turn for light release weeks for a change?
On the WiiWare front we have Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Hikari to Yami no Himegimi to Sekai Seifuku no Too (a.k.a. Final Fantasy My Life as a Darklord) for 1000pts. from Square-Enix, which looks like a good bit of fun where you play the baddie in the tower setting traps for plucky adventurers coming to plunder your treasure. No doubt there will be rafts of DLC in the form of new monsters and traps as well as decorative items with which to dress up your lair in the future.
Virtual Console releases are:
Tantei Jinguuji Saburoo: Toki no Sugiyuku Mamani... for the Famicom (500pts) from Data East is the 4th instalment in the long-running Detective Saburo mystery adventure games (think illustrated Microprose games rather than Zak & Wiki).
Marvel Land from Namco for the Virtual Console Arcade (800pts) is a platform game from 1989 in which you control what appears to be a small girl wearing green animal ears and a tail who runs through a fantasy world jumping on the heads of various things Mario-style.
On the 1st of July the sole DSiWare release is the 2nd instalment of Nintendo's Crossword House series for 500pts.
