Nintendo Download: 16th & 17th February 2010 (Japan)

Posted by Sean Aaron

Japanese downloads go on a diet

There's still something being offered in each category next week, but this has to be one of the lightest Japanese download weeks we can remember with only four games on offer across both platforms.


Diner Dash (1000pts - Hudson) — Hudson is pretty good about doing worldwide releases close together so you should probably expect to see this restaurant game coming to Wii Shops in your town soon!

Virtual Console

Super Famicom Wars (800pts - Nintendo) — Sequel to Famicom Wars, oddly enough! It was never released outside of Japan in the SNES days and given the amount of Japanese text used we really wouldn't expect to see it on the Virtual Console outside of Japan.


G.G. Series: Drilling Attack!! (200pts - Genterprise) — The G.G. Series shows no sign of stopping with yet another entry next week from Genterprise. The action reminds us of Drill Dozer for the GBA: drill through blocks vertically and horizontally to reach the exit whilst avoiding enemies and obstacles along the way.

Detective Saburō Jinguuji: Nakishi no Shōzō & Nazo no Jikenbo (500pts - Arc System Works) — Another in the seemingly endless line of Detective Saburō interactive novels.

Now that version of Diner Dash actually looks quite nice. The DS game they released was a horrible, almost broken port of the flash version. This one, however, looks like a justifiable purchase.

I am so looking forward to when we read:

Yoshi's Island
Mario All Stars (All though I think it's called The Mario Collection In Japan)
Donkey Kong 64

Is coming to Japanese VC then hopefully we're get them too.

Super Famicom Wars looks great, Diner Dash doesn't look so good. I would love such a game, but I think I'll stick with the 2D PC games. O, and Detective Saburō Jinguuji: Nakishi no Shōzō & Nazo no Jikenbo sounds great. But I need the others in the serie too.

Super Famicom Wars is pretty much the same as Advance Wars, just without a campaign and without CO Powers (Although all characters do still have unique bonuses). It's pretty fun.

@Ray: Unlike us they don't release anything during holiday weeks so there's been a few weeks with no downloads at all and there will likely be download-free weeks again this year as well.
