Nintendo Download: Fighting Street, Bomberman, Sudoku, All Time Classics, UNO and a Double Dose of Monkeys (EU)

Posted by Marcel van Duyn

A lot of choices this week!

A whole bunch of games were already confirmed for release today - But of course, they weren't the only games scheduled, and one of the confirmed games even got delayed at the last moment. WiiWare and DSiWare both get three new games, while the Virtual Console only gets one lonely new one.

That loner is Fighting Street, the Turbografx-CD port of the original Street Fighter. Do we really need to go over this again? The original arcade game wasn't good, and this home port is even worse off. Unless you're a die-hard Street Fighter fan, there is absolutely no reason to get this - The sequels are all far superior. If you don't want to trust our review, we cannot be held responsible for any traumatizing events!

DSiWare offers us Bomberman Blitz, which basically just seems to be a portable version of Bomberman Blast - 8 players, online multiplayer, new arenas and new items are all there. For 500 DSi Points it also seems to be steal, so you should be pretty safe picking it up. We'll review it soon.

The very generically titled Sudoku is DSiWare's fourth game based on the popular puzzle, and possibly the best - With hundreds of puzzles for just 200 DSi Points it easily offers the most bang for your buck out of the currently available options. Our review will tell you all you need to know. Can we take a little Sudoku break now, Nintendo?

The last DSiWare release today is a continuation of last week's out of place Halloween release - A Little Bit of... All Time Classics: Family Favorites offers five more games contained in the retail title 42 All-Time Classics. For 500 DSi Points, that means you're paying 100 per game! As with the first, it's pretty decent, but ultimately really only worth it if you like the games contained within.

WiiWare finally brings us Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 3 - Lair of the Leviathan. You'll be disappointed to know that the audio/visual lag that was there in the previous two chapters is still here, however, in terms of content this is easily the best chapter yet, as it's got some of the funniest jokes so far. Decide for yourself! It costs 1000 Wii Points, just like the previous chapters.

The previously announced Manic Monkey Mayhem, after a delay, is also here this week. It's pretty simple - You take control of a monkey and must do battle with up to 7 others by trying to knock them off their platform with throwable bananas. With a variety of game modes and online multiplayer it could be worth it, but for 1000 Wii Points some caution is advised. We'll have a review soon.

Today's final new release is UNO, a WiiWare version of the popular card game. Strangely, a DSiWare version was also planned for release today, but it has been pushed back a week. Online multiplayer seems to be popular this week, because this title also includes it, and it even has Wii Speak support. It's only 500 Wii Points as well, so if you love UNO it should be pretty good. We'll review it soon.

7 new games this time, are you getting any?

It's good to see that Bomberman Blitz has nobody playing online. Someone else better download it!



Porky said:

You guys got Uno and Monkey Mayhem! Eeeekkkk!

Also Im surprised Uno is 500pts first I thought it was going to be 800pts then I saw the trailer it showed the game in wii shop for 1000pts. I would download it even for 2000pts nonetheless!

I would be jealous, but since everyone knows NA is getting Cave Story next week, I'm not.



Stevie said:

Nothing for me this week although I have just downloaded River City Ransom, or Street Gangs as it is called here in the UK, and Lost Winds 2 so I am happy.



500 for UNO is a nice price. I hope is the same when it comes here.



Fuzzy said:

@bboy1. I was just wondering whether that would be available today. Cheers, I'm gonna go get it today!

@Odnetnin: I ain't being sarcastic. Someone told me over the chat it wasn't finished. They said new features were still being worked on. That's all I know.



firecookie29 said:

since it's now released in Europe, Bomberman Blitz should be coming soon. fingers are now duck taped to the "HOPE" position. LOL



Bass_X0 said:

nothing for me this week. But I just got Zombies and LIT last week so I didn't want to spend any more money on games right now anyway.



Cheezy said:

Wow, they got close to the same amount of games that we got on Monday, except all the games THEY got are actually GOOD looking...I can't wait for Bomberman tough, Hudson said it would come out here next week!!!



Rapadash6 said:

Hmm, I was kind of expecting you guys to get two VC games as that would indicate we would continue to do so as well. Now that's looking unlikely but at least now we've made up for those two weeks in which we had nothing, thus conforming to the one game a week mantra.

Finally another download game for me with Bomberman Blitz. I was finally able to use up my free 1000 points (with Dr. Mario earlier on).




Monkey Island 3 is an insta-download. I'm not sure about Blitz as I already have Bomberman Land Touch 2 and not enough space anyway! If there was a storage solution to the fracking DSi I'd download it along with Brain Challenge DSiWare and Dragon Quest Wars! I'm saving my WiiWare Ninty points so may not go for Monkey Mayhem, but we shall see.
