Nintendo Download: 17th & 18th August (Japan)

A break for the Virtual Console and a mini-update for the DSi next week in Japan

All good things must come to an end - weekly Virtual Console releases in Japan, for example. Ah well, it's summer, so people should be playing outside anyway!

WiiWare

Item Sagashi ★ Yōsei to Fushigi no Tō (500pts - Ateam Inc.) -- More party games centred around finding objects from the folks who last brought us "Aha! I Found It!" Hidden Object Game - not sure how many people were hoping to find another one, but here it is!

DSiWare

Knockout Peoples (500pts. - Barnhouse Effect Co., Ltd.) -- We're not sure what to think about this game, which is definitely one of the odder ones in the DSi Shop we've seen. It's a darkly comic choose-your-own-adventure game about a pig who's something of a bother. Depending on what actions you choose for him the pig will be killed in various ways (presumably by the other anthropomorphic animals he's annoyed) - say with a knife in the back? Your goal appears to be able to get him through his adventure alive. It's got a CERO rating of "B," so definitely not for the kiddies despite the cute art style.

Soul of Darkness (800pts - Gameloft) -- The Castlevania knock-off finally hits Japan. Despite the 300-points added on to the Japanese price (typical of Gameloft games) it's probably still worth checking out. Read our Soul of Darkness review to find out why!

The game with the pig sounds oddly hilarious, but other than that, this week sounds pretty blah for Japan.

I'm guessing they'll get 2 games at the end of the month (Mario Tennis and SonSon) to make up for the lack of the VC on August 17 & 18
