Nintendo Download: 19th November 2010 (Europe)

Posted by Marcel van Duyn

One more demo

This week's download arrives with four new titles and one more demo available to download. There's no Virtual Console game, but with one practically confirmed for next week and another confirmed for the week after, there's not too much reason to complain. This week you can get...


BIT.TRIP FATE (Aksys Games, 800pts) – The fifth BIT.TRIP game, this one mixes things up once again and is somewhat like a shoot 'em up. As you may have expected, it does not disappoint, so you can go right ahead and plop down 800 more points if you liked the rest of the games in the series. Read our BIT.TRIP FATE review for an in-depth look. FATE is also accompanied by...

WiiWare demos

BIT.TRIP FATE (Aksys Games) – If our review somehow doesn't cut it for you, then you can also download a demo and try out a little bit of the game to make up your mind.


GO Series: Ivy the kiwi? Mini (Gamebridge, 500 Points) — A surprising entry in the GO Series, this is basically a cut-down version of the DS retail game Ivy the Kiwi? which, to be honest, is not really missing that much. Read our Ivy the Kiwi? Mini review to find out more.

Nintendo Countdown Calendar (Nintendo, 200 Points) — Another practically pointless calendar application, this one is not based on any particular theme as such is even blander than the last few. Our Nintendo Countdown Calendar review will give you the lowdown.

Supermarket Mania (G5 Entertainment, 500 Points) — Seemingly not unlike Diner Dash, in this game you have to manage your own grocery store, stocking the shelves and keeping the store clean in order to keep customers satisfied. It's the only truly new game this week, so we'll have a review soon.

Anything that catches your interest this week?

aaa. At least Bit Trip...Sadly I cannot say its the hundreth week in a row, it would have brought some sort of silly joy for me, while longing for actual games. But its still lame week and nothing to buy for my Wii, for the hudreth week.

Huh, weird. I wonder why Ivy the Kiwi? Mini is a GO Series game for you guys.....Oh well, have fun with FATE!

Faxanadu won't come this month. It would have been on Nintendo's release list if it were.

The demo is the way to go for me.

You can give it 10/10 and demand I buy it right now, but it doesn't jump out at me as a must buy.

However, I felt the same way about Bit.Trip Beat and I bought that one off the back of its demo.

Thanks, Nintendo for offering this game in the demo service.

Everything else - a rubbish calendar, a facebook-esque flash game and another "little bit" game (I believe NA were given a proper demo of Kiwi? a while back) is dump.

Am i missing something, what is the virtual console release then confirmed for the 26th November? (stated in the main article).




Good, good. Bit Trip Fate demo and Ivy the Kiwi Mini DSiWare (that's one of my most anticipated dsiware releases). Got to get round to playing the Chronos demo yet though.



Scottie said:

Thanks Bass X0 - i cannot access that link at the moment because i am at work! That's good news then if it's true about Faxanadu.



Omega said:

It's good that there are more demos coming up. As for Fate. Ah... no. I wait for something that interests me more to come along. Wasn't there supposed to be a game with Zombies on a plane or something like that? Or is it just cancelled?

Running out of time for the tentative "Q4 2010" date nintendo gave cave story... Again. Why am I even shocked

I think Shinesprite put it best. Other than FATE, a dry week. By the way, Europe is also getting Nitro-X, Frenzic and Music On: Electric Guitar. Frenzic looks decent but the other two seem to be shovelware.

This week is definetley better than some of the previous weeks since we got bit. trip fate and ivy the kiwi mini. I think ivy the kiwi should've only been a download, it doesn't look like it would be hard to fit in but I'll still get the dsiware version anyway.
@omega You're thinking of last flight which has zombie like vampires. It's still coming but the last gameplay video was dissapointing.



Scottie said:

Not interested until we get Cave Story, i am not downloading anything out of principle. I am fed up waiting, the US had it in March. NoE get your bloomin act together. Please can we have the game before Xmas at least.
