Nintendo Download: 20th August (Europe)

Posted by Marcel van Duyn

More VC and a bunch of WiiWare and DSiWare

As we reported earlier this week, Europe gets yet another Virtual Console title to continue the streak. It's accompanied by another bunch of catch-up titles on WiiWare and DSiWare of which we've already reviewed all but one.


Furry Legends (1000pts, Gamelion Studios) – A platformer that's been in development for quite a while. It didn't turn out quite as great as we'd hoped, but it is still quite a good title and worth a look. Our Furry Legends review will tell you all there is to know.

A Monsteca Corral: Monsters Vs. Robots (500pts, Onteca) – At first sight a very strange game with incredibly weird characters, it's actually a fairly decent strategy title that may be worth your time for the small asking price of only 500 Wii Points. Read our A Monsteca Corral: Monsters Vs. Robots review for the lowdown.

Virtual Console

Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory (900pts, D4 Enterprise) – After Fatal Fury Special, which was more of an update of Fatal Fury 2, this one offers a lot more content, such as a bunch of new characters, completely new arenas, and even a number of new gameplay elements. As the only title this week not already released in North America, we'll have a review ready soon.


Hospital Havoc (500pts, Hands-On Mobile) – Unfortunately not much like Theme Hospital and more like an arcade game, in which the objective is to quickly go from one patient to the next to cure each of them. It can be moderately amusing, but it's nothing very special. Our Hospital Havoc review will inform you of everything.

Primrose (200pts, Sabarasa Digital Builders) – You'd be inclined to think that is yet another average puzzler, but it's actually a surprisingly addictive one and at a 200 DSi Point price we recommend looking into it. Read our Primrose review is of course the thing to read if you want to know more.

3D Mahjong (500pts, GameOn) – Another DSiWare Mahjong title, this was released in North America last Monday, so we should have a review ready any moment.

No press release this week, strangely! Will you be getting any of the new offerings?

Good to see more Neo Geo games. Fatal Fury 3 wouldn't have been my game of choice, but at least it's one step closer to Real Bout Special.

Nothing for me this week. Had some interest in Furry Legends, but not that much anymore. Not that I mind. I have more then enough other games to play and other things to do.

Even more Virtual Console for Europe. Wow.

And I enjoyed Furry Legends, even though a lot of people didn't.

Nothing this week, (almost)nothing last year, nothing ever. Why no Cave Story?!!!!!!? Some times even good games are too late, as many publishers must have learned, when releasing old s**t in EU.

Nothing interesting except for Furry Legends. But I don't think it's a must have because there are other better WiiWare titles I still have to buy.

I agree with Varoennauraa that they should hurry up and release Cave Story. I'm not interested myself because I already played the free PC version to death, but I know some people are.

For some reason, I think the VC release for NA will come next week. But I don't know why. If not, then it will be August 30, I'm sure of it.

No download for me this week either, rubbish. Release Cave Story now. I am fed up waiting . . .
