26 & 27 January 2010 (Japan)

More Phoenix Wright, more N64, more DSiWare anime photo frames!

It's still a small update, but after a mini-break WiiWare has returned along with the first new N64 game in nearly a year on the Virtual Console. Not to be left out there are five new releases for Japanese DSiWare -- though only two are games; one being a new puzzler from Nintendo. WiiWareJanken Party Paradise (500pts - Studio Zan) –..

Brawn, brains, twins, dogs, ninjas and platform games "risen from the dead" -- this week has it all!

A nice update for North America this week as we see a game many thought would stay in Japan, a new brain teaser and a catch-up title for the Genesis on the Virtual Console. DSiWare is no slouch though with a selection of strategy and platform games...

Another light week for Japanese downloads.

Nintendo corporate seems to be imitating the European division when it comes to the Wii in Japan with a second week of VC-only downloads: only one title this week for the little white box. The DSi fares a little better with five new releases, some of which are actually games! Virtual ConsoleSalad no Kuni no Tomato Hime (500pts Famicom - Hudson) - Known..

And thus it becomes even harder to say anything positive about Nintendo of Europe.

After not releasing any Virtual Console games for Christmas and the week after, you'd think Nintendo would've learned their lesson when they finally release one last week. But no, they're back to their old tricks again, as this week offers next to nothing all around. The Wii only gets a single new downloadable game..

11 January 2010 (North America)

Courtroom drama, temporal shenanigans, shadow play, billiards and board games this week.

Well, it looks like the release schedule in North America is starting out as slow as everywhere else, although three WiiWare releases and a Virtual Console add is pretty impressive even if it is smaller than the release weeks in December. The DSi offerings are a bit on the light side with a couple of games that..

12 & 13 January 2010 (Japan)

WiiWare takes a back seat, more MSX and the usual load of DSiWare.

Well, the WiiWare releases have been sparse recently and next week there will be none. Wii owners will at least get a Virtual Console update; though with a couple of Konami shooters that frankly looked better in other incarnations elsewhere, it will be small comfort. The DSi, on the other hand seems to be back to true form with six..

Virtual Console returns!

After two weeks of very few interesting downloadable games, today offers us some potentially good titles. The Virtual Console gets one new game (And a good one, at that) while WiiWare gets two and DSiWare gets three. The first Virtual Console game in 3 weeks is Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi on the Mega Drive. Released...

A quiet start to the new year.

Nintendo of America seems to have spent the last few weeks compensating for all those two- and three-game release weeks in the rest of the year recently, but for the first update of the New Year we're back to only a handful, some of which have already been released in Europe and Japan -- hopefully not a sign of a return to the old ways!

5th & 6th January 2010 (Japan)

A quiet start to the new year.

The Japanese Wii and DSi shops have seen some massive updates this past year much to the envy of 'net-reading Wii owners in other territories, but Nintendo are taking it easy at home with a mere handful of releases to start 2010. WiiWareBoku wa Plarail Untenshi (1000pts - Takara Tomy) -- This is an example of a gaming staple in Japan: the train driving simulator. As..

Nintendo of Europe seems to have forgotten Virtual Console still exists.

Yes, we didn't get any Virtual Console games in the final update of 2009, and now it looks like we're not getting any in the first update of 2010 either. Nintendo of Europe has just sent out a press release listing Friday's new downloadables, with a measly selection of 5 games compared to the 10+ North America's consistently..

Ten new games to celebrate the advent of 2010!

Nintendo have updated their weekly North American downloads for the last time in 2009, and the year is going out with a corker of an update! Not only is Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth out today but also PilotWings to boot for Virtual Console fans. This is in addition to eight other ones released today, which seem to be a bit of a grab bag..

Not much in the Wii's stocking this year, but DSiWare users must have been very good indeed!

Well, after North America's big release Monday this week, it has to be said that Nintendo of Europe are coming off a little like Ebenezer Scrooge with this week's European download offerings on the Wii: just two WiiWare offerings and no Virtual Console content for Christmas. The DSiWare stocking is fuller..

Eco-shooting, arcade ninjas, Super Smash Bros., Dragon's Lair and more in this week's download offering.

Nintendo are putting out a decent number of titles in North America with the end of the year rapidly approaching, with a nice mix of new and catch-up titles on offer. Todays VC and WiiWare offerings mean that there's now 500 titles to choose from if you're looking for downloadable games on the..

WiiWare catch-up and more MSX games for the Virtual Console.

The Wii gets the lion's share of Japanese downloads next week with four new WiiWare and three new VC titles. DSiWare gets a couple of games and two more Rurubu travel guides to round things out. Note that the DSiWare releases will be on Thursday the 24th rather than Wednesday due to the holiday on the Emperor's birthday. Year-end..

Finally more than one game for Virtual Console again.

This week's releases aren't too surprising, with many games that have been out in North America for some time. One game, however, that might be noteworthy, can be found on DSiWare. For Virtual Console, there's A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia, the game that inspired a recent, rather good franchise revival. Unfortunately, time has not..

The focus is on DSiWare this week

After bumper crops of WiiWare and Virtual Console titles on the Wii in Japan recently, this week will only see one for each service. The DSiWare service, however, will have a fairly typical seven releases to choose from. WiiWarePhoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (900pts - Capcom) - Everyone's favourite trial lawyer debuts on the Wii! This appears to be the first four..

Exactly as promised.

The observant ones probably already noticed, but in a change of pace, Nintendo of Europe already updated their website with all of this week's releases over the past few days. The games in question make up the entire update, as there's no surprises this time. Alex Kidd in Shinobi World on the Master System was the last Alex Kidd game ever made. As you can guess, it's an attempt..

A mix of catch-up and new titles in another big update for Wii and DSi.

There's a mix of new and catch-up titles in the update this week including the penultimate chapter in the new Tales of Monkey Island series: Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 4. Copter Crisis and My Zoo were both recently released in PAL territories. Reviewer Tommy Bowskill thought the former had some potential, but failed to..

A light download selection next week after this week's mega releases.

This week's update was full to bursting, so it's just as well that next week is a little on the light side with only a few downloads for both Wii and DSi. WiiWarePonjan (1000pts - Tomy) -- The Wii counterpart to the DSiWare release of the kiddy version of mahjong (real mahjong -- not the matching game). Virtual ConsoleKing of..

The Virtual Console does not bring us what most of us wanted.

After a week with no Virtual Console game, and the recent North American releases of Indiana Jones and Super Mario Kart, one would think that one or both of them would've been released in PAL regions this week - After all, either would've been the 300th VC game for Australia. Sadly, neither has been released, but we have finally gotten a..

Another mega update for North America.

Multiple games were already announced for release this week, but they don't even make up half of the total releases. Each service gets more than one new game, and almost all of them are (or seem to be) good. The Virtual Console steals the show this time though - Super Mario Kart on the SNES is the long-awaited original game in Nintendo's famous racing series..

Virtual Console takes a week off.

It's an all-new game affair this week - There's not a single retro game in sight. WiiWare gets a mighty 4 new releases, but don't be fooled too much - Two of them are just demos North America got Monday but we didn't yet. DSiWare gets 4 games too, but there's no tomfoolery going around there. Arguably the biggest release this week is Pokémon Rumble, a fighting..

It's like a complete reversal - WiiWare only gets one new game this week, while DSiWare gets three.

Nintendo would like you to think that they're releasing a whopping 6 WiiWare games today, but the truth is there's only one - The remaining five are all demos of other games, allowing those unsure of their purchase to check them out before spending money. The Virtual Console gets another version of..

Things are a bit underwhelming this week.

There's no doubt that a lot of people are waiting for the European release of Excitebike: World Rally, but it looks like Nintendo is letting us down for now - This week offers us only four new games, and none of them are particularly interesting. WiiWare's the only service with more than one game this time - My Zoo is Hudson Soft's "sequel" to My..
