CIRCLE Entertainment Details Its Upcoming Releases

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

DSiWare and a 3D WiiWare remake included

CIRCLE Entertainment has been one of the most active publishers on Nintendo download services, particularly DSiWare. Today the company has sent us details on its substantial list of upcoming releases, including some that are new announcements.

First up is a new title on the way to the 3DS eShop, Witch & Hero — with 8-bit retro visuals and sound, this puts you in the shoes of a hero, not surprisingly, accompanied by a witch. With a combination of traditional monster bashing and magic, there'll be 20 levels with two difficulty settings, as well as trial and infinite modes for those looking for a bigger test.

The other new entries are confirmed for DSiWare, showing that there's life in the old service yet. Ah! Heaven adopts an ink painting visual style with 24 platforming stages to conquer. Achilles War is a tank battle game set in that famous year 21XX, with a choice of three tanks to break through waves of enemy defences. Goony is the last of the new DSiWare titles on the way, and it appears to be an endless runner from a top down viewpoint, in which you simply move left and right to avoid danger — it'll also include an option to exchange level layouts (through block placements) via QR codes, as well as a same-system multiplayer option.

The publisher also provided updated assets for the previously announced Swords & Soldiers 3D on the 3DS eShop, as well as DSiWare titles Publisher Dream and Color Commando, the latter being developed by Goodbye Galaxy Games; follow the links to check out the game pages and screenshots.

There's certainly plenty on the way from the publisher, do any of them in particular catch your eye?

I'm glad they have finally move to the 3ds as well. They need to stop all dsi crap cus I hate dling them any more. Too much hassle. They are pretty much hit or miss with their games so ill wait on some reviews. I do think ill pick up Swords and Soldiers though!

I'd buy more DSiware if only they would let you load them up and play them right from the SD card.

What are people's issues with DSiware games? For those people who just got a DSi, its nice to have some new games to play. I own a 3DS, but I still have the option to get DSi games just the same. I like 3D, but if it's cheaper for them to make it 2D and available to both DSi and 3DS, I don't mind. Cool off people.

@EaZy_T I have the same issue I have to delete some of these games to download new ones. Bums me out! But you can re-download them again if you want to go back. A pain in the butt!
