Nintendo Download: Contra Rebirth, Dictionary 6 in 1 (EU)
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
A very underwhelming week for Europe.
Aside from the previously announced Contra Rebirth things in Europe this week are pretty abysmal - Just one other new downloadable thing and it's another DSiWare application with highly limited use!
Contra Rebirth is almost bound to be a great pick - It seems very similar to Contra III/Super Probotector on the SNES in terms of graphical style, which means you're bound to get a nostalgic kick out of it. Once again you've got to blast through numerous stages with a variety of weapons, without getting hit - Every single enemy attack will take you out in one hit. As usual, there's also a two-player mode and even crazier difficulty levels to select. And yes, the franchise has been known as Contra in Europe for a while now, so you'll play as humans - Not the Probotectors! We'll review the game this weekend. In the meantime, it costs 1000 Wii Points, and you can read Sean's first impressions again if you're not so sure yet.
Although it has its uses, we can't imagine anyone has been highly anticipating Dictionary 6 in 1 with Camera Function. As the name implies, you can enter words from one of six languages and translate them to any of the others - The contained languages are English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Japanese. You can also use the DSi's camera to take an actual picture of a word, although of course this just makes us wonder if it will suffer from the same horrible recognition as WarioWare Snapped! For 800 DSi Points it's also fairly expensive for a simple application. Nevertheless, we'll review it soon.
And sadly, that's all there is this week! Let's hope for a lot more next time!
