Nintendo Download: 21st May 2010 (Europe)
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
The Virtual Console takes a break, while WiiWare and DSiWare get a total of six games.
It's that dreaded time again - The Virtual Console is skipping another week in Europe. WiiWare and DSiWare don't exactly make up for the lack of retro goodness either, because there seems to be nothing truly special available this time.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials & Tribulations (1000pts - Capcom) – Generally called the best game in the Ace Attorney series, it is still the last game in Phoenix's storyline. Of course, any real Ace Attorney fans already bought this on the DS when it came out almost 2 years ago. Like the previous two titles, this WiiWare version is as basic as it gets - It's practically just a straight port with no extras. If you want to know more check out our Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials & Tribulations review.
Robin Hood: The Return of Richard (500pts - Nordcurrent) – Another shooting gallery game, in this one you take control of Robin Hood and shoot your way through a number of stages, scoring points by defeating both regular enemies and bosses. Doesn't seem too bad, but we'll have a review soon!
Ferrari GT Evolution (800pts - Gameloft) – It's time for another Gameloft game! This racer is fairly good, but can't match up to the few other games of the same genre available on DSiWare, as our Ferrari GT Evolution review will inform you.
Telegraph Crosswords (500pts - Sanuk Games) – A collection of crossword puzzles that have been featured in the Telegraph. Pretty standard stuff, we imagine! Interestingly enough, a few countries in Europe will be getting one of two different game featuring puzzles from other newspapers in its place - Mehr Kreuzworträtsel Welt Edition features puzzles from German newspaper Die Welt, while Mots Croisés has puzzles from an unknown French newspaper.
Discolight (200pts - Kaaza Solution) – Another gem from Kaaza, instead of letting you light up your DS just like flashlights, this one will provide you with ways of turning your DS into improvised disco lights. 200 DSi points wrongly spent, we can almost certainly already assure you!
Flips: More Bloody Horowitz (200pts - Electronic Arts) – Yet another Flips title, although now much more sensibly priced at only 200 DSi Points. This one also features three different stories instead of two. Check out our Flips: More Bloody Horowitz review to see if the lower price makes this one any more interesting than the previous ones.
For the first time in a while, Nintendo of Europe has not issued a press release about all this in advance, so you'll just have to do with this basic info for now!
