Another retro fighter, and more

Thankfully, the wait for another Virtual Console title wasn't long - Surely you managed to get by with just one week of no new retro games?

A slightly lower amount of releases this time

It's the first time in a few weeks that Europe has to make do without a new Virtual Console game, but you can't really complain too much: we've had some great titles recently and we'll be getting another game in the form of Samurai Shodown III next week.

The Wii takes a break with just two new DSiWare games as the only downloads next week

Apparently Nintendo has nothing new up their sleeve for the Wii at the end of August – odd, considering the 2nd week of the month was a holiday and we still haven't seen Mario Tennis published, which was previously announced for release this month. In any event, Japanese DSi owners have the following two games..

More VC and a bunch of WiiWare and DSiWare
