Nintendo Download: 8th & 9th June 2010 (Japan)

Posted by Sean Aaron

WiiWare returns, yet another Neo Geo fighting game, DSi baseball and Ferraris next week in Japan

WiiWare

Kuma Nage ・Puzzle Hen: Piina no Suki na Akai Candy & Kuma Nage ・Puzzle Hen: Kiina no Kirai na Aoi Hōseki (1000pts - Square-Enix) -- Two related games which seem to be set in some kind of storybook world. From the description it's hard to tell what you're supposed to do and the screenshots don't shed much more light on it, though they do indicate a game with a pop-up book quality and lots of bears. The two games seem to be opposite sides of the same coin with one being a shadow version of the other and it's hinted that more levels are unlocked if you own both games.

Virtual Console

Fighter's History Dynamite (900pts Neo Geo - D4 Enterprise) -- One of dozens of fighting games that appeared on the Neo Geo. As far as we can tell the only thing noteworthy about this one is it was from Data East and features Karnov as a playable character.

DSiWare

at Sports! Kōshien 2010 & at Sports! Pro Baseball 2010 (500pts - Tasuke) -- A couple of baseball games played with teams in the Japanese national league. We're not really sure what the difference is between the two, but presumably a Japanese baseball fan would!

Ferrari GT: Evolution (800pts - Gameloft) -- Gameloft's ambitious Ferrari racing game comes to Japan. We thought it was a decent effort, as can be seen in our Ferrari GT Evolution review.

It looks like the US will be getting those S-E WiiWare games at some point as The Tales of Bearsworth Manor: Chaotic Conflicts and Puzzling Pages. The ESRB notes: "This is an action-strategy game in which players throw paper cut-outs of bears at little creatures on a storybook game board. Bears can attack enemy creatures that are trying to steal the players' crystals. "Cartoony" bombs occasionally explode on the board, and paper-bear attacks sometimes result in fiery bursts."

Fighter's History Dynamite is notable for being the sequel to Fighter's History, a Street Fighter II ripoff so blatant Capcom sued Data East over it. They lost.

Dynamite's pretty durn good, though.

@Adamant, yeah, you are right, this is the sequel isn't it lol. Good, because it's much better than the first version, although we already have Super Street Fighter II, Fighter's History Dynamite has supers :D

Fighter's History Dynamite is better known by it's non-Japanese name of Karnov's Revenge.
