Play & Learn Spanish (Selectsoft, 800pts/$7.99) — The linguistic edutainment industry continues apace with another attempt at teaching Spanish to DSiWare fans following the average 4 TRAVELLERS: Play Spanish. Our own language experts are on the case.

Go Fetch! 2 (Agetec, Inc., 500pts/$5) — Yes, it's a sequel to Go Fetch!, the DSiWare game about fetching a ball. Hopefully it fares better than its lacklustre predecessor, but only time — and our upcoming review — will tell.
