Nintendo Download: 19th May 2010 (Japan)

Posted by Sean Aaron

Earth Saving, Sengoku strategy and Kanji training on DSi next week in Japan

Although we're unaware of any holidays in Japan this week, it appears the Wii is taking a download break. The DSi is still getting a few titles on Wednesday, so importers still have something new to look forward to.


Earth Saver Plus: Inseki Bakuha Daisakusen (500 Points – Tom Create) – The original Earth Saver must have been a big seller because there's now four additional difficulty levels and an endless mode – the inclusion of which is cited as being due to "popular demand" – which apparently also accounts for the midi-price. We thought the original budget release was pretty good and given the only localisation required is the in-game manual (all other menus are in English) we wouldn't be surprised to see a worldwide release for this game – provided Tom Create or another publisher can see a market. If you want to know what's required to "save the Earth" check out our Earth Saver preview!

Ai Sengoku Spirits Gaiden: Nobunaga Hen and Ai Sengoku Spirits Gaiden: Hideyoshi Hen (500 Points – Papillon) – A strategy game set during the Sengoku or "Warring States" period of medieval Japan, which looks similar to Koei's Nobunaga's Ambition. It's apparently so big they had to split it into two games: one named for Odo Nobunaga and the other Toyotomi Hideyoshi. If you know who these people are and you like strategy games, then these are no doubt right up your alley.

Otona no Tame no Renjuku Kanji (500 Points – I.E. Institute) – An educational application aimed at helping adults practice their Kanji from the people who have been publishing Kanji study aids for students of all ages for over a year on the DSi.

Wow. Nothing for Wii at all. This is the future America and Europe has to look forward to.

I'm sure there's some reason for no downloads on Tuesday that I must have missed. I was kind of hoping for Bit.Trip RUNNER and there's a couple of announced VC titles for May still to be released...

I'm afraid Europe is first. Nothing have been announced for this Friday for VC and WiiWare so far.

No holidays as far as i know. Just Aoi Matsuri in Kyoto (losts of tourists standing in the middle of the road taking pictures not looking at people riding bicycles trying to edge around them, ugh).

Well, if there's no Wii stuff this week for Japan, they'll have a double week next time (the 26th) since Magical Drop 2 and Heisei Shin Onigashima (Zenpen) are both still scheduled for the month. If there's something going on that could explain the lesser amount of titles on the VC on this month's schedule.
