Star Wars, Art Style and Escape Game (EU)

One new game for each service

Just three new games this week, but the offerings are quite good - Virtual Console and DSiWare get two new games in familiar series while WiiWare gets a puzzle game Japan has had since December last year. Of course the biggest release of the week is Super Empire Strikes Back, the second SNES Star Wars game. As you can probably guess, it's based on Episode V of the..

Catchup on the Wii, new games on the DSi.

Yes, it's that time again - time to release a few WiiWare and Virtual Console games Europe has already had for some time! The WiiWare side of things is quite decent, but most people will likely pass on this week's single new VC offering. DSiWare gets a certain anticipated strategy title from Square Enix and a new Art Academy game from Nintendo. Taito has..

WiiWare plays catchup to North America while VC and DSiWare both get one new game.

WiiWare this week is mostly predictable - All three games have been out in North America for some time, and two of them were even specifically announced for release today. VC and DSiWare are a bit more surprising, although neither of them has really gotten something great. You, Me and the Cubes is Nintendo's latest..

Nintendo finally releases their quirky new WiiWare game.

As it was already announced some time ago that Nintendo's latest WiiWare offering, You, Me and the Cubes would be released in North America during the summer, it was pretty much a given it would come out this week - This week has the last update of the summer, after all. It's accompanied by some relatively uninteresting other WiiWare and..

Something for people of all ages.

Although WiiWare and DSiWare have a lot of games left to get this year, if everything on Nintendo's list actually comes out, that doesn't mean the Virtual Console is going to suffer from it (At least not yet) - Today sees the release of two new retro games, just like last week. WiiWare gets two games as well, while DSiWare gets a single application. For most..

Another WiiWare boost with three new games.

For some reason, Nintendo chose not to reveal today's releases in advance - Not only did they not put a press release on their press site, but they didn't even send one to journalists through email! We have no idea why, because this is actually a relatively solid week - Definitely not as bad as some past updates. WiiWare's highlight is the previously..

Rygar, Solomon's Key, Spaceball and Solitaire (EU)

The last two weeks had no new Virtual Console games, but this time there's two.

Finally, some more Virtual Console Arcade support from a publisher other than Sega! It's not Namco, with their gigantic catalogue of arcade games already available in Japan, but rather Tecmo, who has chosen to release two more of their coin-op classics. Rygar is very different from the more well-known NES game of the..

Contra and Star Wars return, and bring along two other games.

Not many surprises this week - Both WiiWare releases were already announced in advance, and the Virtual Console game was expected to be released this week as well. The only surprise is the sole DSiWare release, but we can't imagine anyone being genuinely excited for it! Contra ReBirth is the latest installment in the Contra series. You..

More arcade classics for the Virtual Console and DSiWare gets the spotlight as WiiWare takes another holiday

For a second week running there's no new WiiWare titles for Japan, but at least there's two VCA titles for the Virtual Console on the way next Tuesday. DSiWare definitely gets the spotlight next week with multiple releases, though the majority are part of a new Nintendo lifestyle series..

Contra Rebirth, Dictionary 6 in 1 (EU)

A very underwhelming week for Europe.

Aside from the previously announced Contra Rebirth things in Europe this week are pretty abysmal - Just one other new downloadable thing and it's another DSiWare application with highly limited use! Contra Rebirth is almost bound to be a great pick - It seems very similar to Contra III/Super Probotector on the SNES in terms of graphical style, which means..

Another catch-up week for North America.

There's a fairly diverse offer of new games this week - An adventure game, a party game, an RPG and a puzzler. All of them are also catch-up games - Europe has already had 3 of them on VC/WiiWare/DSiWare for a few weeks, while the final game was already released on PC two weeks ago. At least they're finally...

The Virtual Console takes another break.

No huge surprises this week - WiiWare sees a game North America got earlier this week, along with Gameloft's latest, while DSiWare gets a single game already previously announced. Mr. Driller W is the latest in Namco's now quite well-known Mr. Driller series - A spin-off of the Dig Dug series, you play as the son of its protagonist as you try to dig your way..

NoA takes a step back with only one game for each service.

It seems Nintendo of America has finally decided to take it easy for a week - There's only three new games this time. That's not to say they're bad though! For the Virtual Console there's Super Empire Strikes Back, the second game in the Super Star Wars series, which is based on the movie of the same name. Like the first game, it's..

An all-star lineup for Europe this week!

There's a total of 5 new releases this week - And all of them are highly regarded games! Among them are two new Nintendo games, which, as Nintendo claims, are both being released because of this week's German Gamescom event. The Virtual Console finally gets a certain SNES launch title which strangely hasn't been made available yet - Pilotwings, a flight sim..

Nintendo of America does a bit of catching up.

There's nothing really unexpected this week - Except for the fact that it seems LucasArts won't be releasing their Super Star Wars games in consecutive weeks, as there's no new one this time. Four of today's five new games have already been released in Europe, so we've already got reviews ready. The Virtual Console has the best new game this week,..

2 DSiWare and WiiWare games, and one Virtual Console game.

For the first time in quite a while, this week brings us two new DSiWare games. Today's other new releases aren't exactly surprising! For DSiWare, there's the previously announced Flipnote Studio, a nifty application which lets you draw your very own animations, which you can then fine-tune in various ways before uploading them to a special..

Well, that didn't take long - Super Star Wars is available today, among other games!

We only just reported on the ESRB rating a classic Star Wars SNES game less than an hour ago, but it turns out the rating isn't going to be sitting there without the game actually being out for multiple months - Super Star Wars is available today! It's accompanied by the long-awaited North American releases of..

After skipping a week, the Official Nintendo Magazine has once again revealed the Wii/DSi updates in advance. As promised a while ago, today finally sees the European release of Bonsai Barber. Accompanying it is a single Virtual Console game and two DSiWare applications which might..

The Virtual Console shows signs of life.

The past two North American Wii/DSi updates had no new Virtual Console games, but thankfully, there is one this week. It's accompanied by two WiiWare games and the final DSiWare Art Style game (For now). On WiiWare, today brings us the previously announced Overturn. Perhaps taking a bit of inspiration from Nintendo's Custom Robo series, you must customize..

The Virtual Console takes a break after the Hanabi Festival.

After North America did not get any VC games the last two weeks some people were rightfully worried that Europe would also not get any new ones as soon as the Hanabi Festival was over. Those worries were well warranted, because as it turns out, indeed, there's not one new VC game tonight! Instead, there's a whopping three new WiiWare..

Virtual Console sits out again.

We're really wondering what's going on over at Nintendo of America - Last week didn't have any VC games, but this week doesn't either! For about the 7th time in a row, there are 3 new WiiWare games, though. Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 1: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal is the first episode in Telltale's new...

2 arcade classics, 3 new WiiWare titles and a bumper crop of DSiWare next week.

Looks like we're back to a more familiar release schedule in Japan, but the number of new DSiWare releases is more than normal with 9 new titles (though it has to be admitted two of these are guidebooks). The Virtual Console releases include Tecmo's second offering for the VCA: Ninja Ryukenden, which gamers elsewhere..

The UK's Official Nintendo Magazine has once again spilled the beans on tomorrow's update in advance, although there's really only one game we didn't know about yet. As was pretty much guaranteed to happen, tomorrow sees the release of the final two Hanabi Festival games. They're accompanied by another two WiiWare games and one DSiWare game. Kirby's..

WiiWare catch-up, another classic Namco arcade game and some simple DSiWare puzzling adventure next week.

Next week's schedule is a little on the light side (though as with previous weeks it's possible that Nintendo of Japan is updating their website piecemeal) with only 1 new WiiWare release, a couple of VC offerings and a single DSiWare release. Final Fantasy IV: The After Years (800pts -..

The Hanabi Festival delivers the 300th European VC game.

Nintendo's official UK magazine has once again spilled the beans on the upcoming Wii and DSi update. Surprisingly enough, Nintendo has not chosen to make Kirby's Dream Land 3 the 300th VC game, despite it being a planned Hanabi Festival release. At least the game which is now #300 is a great one! MUSHA, also known as Musha Aleste, is part of..
