WiiWare plays catchup, DSiWare gets more miniature retail titles

Things are a bit disappointing on the download front for Europe this week - only the Virtual Console release can really be recommended. What's most interesting about this update is that we've finally gotten a WiiWare game North America has had for over a year - if only it was any good! It's taken a while, but the original Shinobi is..

Winds, Warriors, Dinosaurs and Domo-kun (US)

A whopping five new DSi games.

This week's a mixture of catch-up games and new ones - Who would've thought that all five announced Domo-kun games for DSiWare would be released at the same time? Of course, today also sees the North American release of LostWinds 2, the fantastic sequel to the WiiWare launch game, as previously announced. LostWinds:...

Nintendo of Europe reveals Friday's download games two days in advance!

Bumped for the Thursday night visitors! We believe this is a first - NoE regularly announces the weekly new downloadable releases one day in advance, on Thursday, but this time they've chosen to do it two days in advance instead. This week has the nice amount of five new games, but keep in mind that they will not be available..

One for each service, again

With two games already previously announced, this week's new releases aren't very surprising, although many will no doubt be disappointed that a certain major WiiWare title Europe got last Friday is not part of the lineup. Final Fight 2 is arguably today's biggest new game, as it's really the only one we know a lot about. This SNES-exclusive sequel to the arcade classic..

Nintendo celebrates the 100th WiiWare release in style.

Last week saw the release of a single WiiWare game in Europe, which happened to be the 99th - Logically, we all assumed that this meant Nintendo of Europe was saving something special as 100th release. Thankfully, we were right - One of today's new WiiWare games is a sequel to a launch game...

Fantasies, Wars and Words (US)

Square's original RPG classic is finally here.

Just three games this week, but that doesn't mean they're not interesting - Especially not when one of them is the first game in Square's Final Fantasy seies. Final Fantasy on the NES was remade for the Game Boy Advance a while ago, which is possibly the reason Square held off on adding the game to...

Another WiiWare holiday, three VC Releases and six DSiWare titles for next week!

Apparently there's been so much WiiWare released in Japan recently that they had to take a break next week, but there's three Virtual Console releases to make up for it and the DSi gets the lion's share of downloads again with six titles across all price points. Virtual...

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..
