Mighty Milky Way Hits DSiWare on Monday

Posted by Corbie Dillard

Planet-hopping fun is almost here

WayForward has just announced that their newest release Mighty Milky Way will be coming to the North American DSiWare service on Monday, May 9th. The game will cost you 800 Nintendo Points, but considering the developer's track record on the service, it would seem a small price to pay.

We'll have a full review of the game next week and until then you can check out the official press release below for more information on the game.

Hot on the tail of the critically acclaimed Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, WayForward announced today that its planet-hopping, j-pop blaring, candy-hoarding creation, Mighty Milky Way, will launch on May 9th, 2011 in North America, exclusively on Nintendo’s DSiWare™ service.

Create and destroy planets with reckless abandon across 40 action puzzle levels. As Luna with her magical staff, explode vicious space monsters, avoid sizzling electrical barriers, and grab all the delicious planet candy you can while avoiding the scourge of the Milky Way—the laser-eyed T-Rex! Mighty Milky Way comes alive with j-pop, and a choral T-Rex anthem alongside the trademark 2D animation for which WayForward is known.

"The march of human progress over millennia has led us to this very moment. The release of Mighty Milky Way is the high water mark of mankind's creativity."
-Sean Velasco

Mighty Milky Way comes from staff responsible for A Boy and His Blob, and Contra 4. Mighty Milky Way will be available exclusively on Nintendo DSiWare™ for 800 DSi Points™ in North America. For more information on Mighty Milky Way and other WayForward games, please visit

The last DSiWare game that I purchased was Shantae. How fitting that it would take another WayForward game to get me to fire up the ol' DSiWare Shop again.

Unless I win Nintendo Points from that Facebook contest (which I'm not sure I'm entering, as I don't fish), I'll probably get it on my 3DS.
