Puzzle Bobble, Water Warfare, SimEarth, Altered Beast and More Sudoku (EU)

DSiWare takes a bit of a break to give the spotlight to the Wii releases this week.

A large part of today's update isn't very surprising - Three of the games are published by Hudson Soft and were already announced for release earlier this week. The two unannounced releases are quite nice surprises though! On WiiWare, we've gotten Puzzle Bobble Plus!, the third Bubble Bobble series WiiWare remake by..

Nintendo Download: Drill Sergeants, Puzzles, Golf, Art Styles and Planets (US)

Drill Sergeants, Puzzles, Golf, Art Styles and Planets (US)

Three more WiiWare games accompanied by one each for DSiWare and Virtual Console.

There seems to be a resurgence in Nintendo's focus on WiiWare - There were three new WiiWare games last week and there's three more this week. They're probably not the titles most people were waiting for, though... It should also be noted that every single game this week is new to western shores, so we don't have any..

Nintendo Download: 23-24 June 2009 (Japan)

23-24 June 2009 (Japan)

A feast of DSiWare titles to end the drought, an anticipated WiiWare title from Hudson and *two* arcade classics next week!

Well, after weeks without a new DSiWare release in Japan the storm gates have been opened and next Wednesday is serving up a bumper crop of titles for the portable download service. Chuugakku Kihon Hana Tango Word Puzzle (200pts) from I.E. Institute, Ltd. is a word puzzle game..

Nintendo Download: Icarian, Let's Catch and Brain Training (EU)

Icarian, Let's Catch and Brain Training (EU)

One anticipated title is accompanied by two... not so anticipated ones.

This week finally sees the release of much-hyped title Icarian: Kindred Spirits. It's accompanied by a not-so-great second WiiWare game, and a solitary DSiWare release. That's right - Virtual Console misses out again! Icarian: Kindred Spirits has been hotly anticipated for quite a while. From the screens and videos released..

Nintendo Download: Toasters, Rainbows, Catching, Calculators, Clocks and Harriers (US)

Toasters, Rainbows, Catching, Calculators, Clocks and Harriers (US)

A whopping six games this week.

WiiWare seems to be the main focus this week, with a whole three new games for it. DSiWare gets two more non-games, while VC has to do with just one game. On WiiWare, you can get Eduardo the Samurai Toaster, from Semnat Studios. This promising game was first announced at the start of the year and looks to be quite similar to games such as Metal Slug and Contra,..

Nintendo Download: Super Smash Bros., Cocoto, Asphalt and Sudoku (EU)

Super Smash Bros., Cocoto, Asphalt and Sudoku (EU)

As announced, four new games are new available.

Well, no surprises here! All four games released today were already announced beforehand. Super Smash Bros. is the first game in Nintendo's massively popular fighting franchise. There's a total of 12 characters and 9 stages, which is obviously not much when compared to the content of Melee and Brawl, but it's still fairly fun. The question is, is..

16th June 2009 (Japan)

2+2 on the Wii; DSiWare takes a break.

Next week we have four downloads on the Japanese Wii and nothing new to download for the Japanese DSi. Mochi Mochi Q looks to be part Equilibrio and part World of Goo with cute little pink blob aliens trying to escape being eaten by cute big purple ones using the Wii remote NES-style and presumably some form of motion control. 800 points from Natsume Soft..

Nintendo Download: Wars, Conquests, Rivalries and... Fish? (US)

Wars, Conquests, Rivalries and... Fish? (US)

There seems to be a very clear theme this week!

There's only really one surprise this week, and it's the weekly Virtual Console title. All of this week's WiiWare and DSiWare releases were already announced last week! On VC, you can go to war in another classic Koei strategy game for the SNES - Genghis Khan II: Clan of the Gray Wolf. It's not as...

Nintendo Download: 9th June 2009 (Japan)

9th June 2009 (Japan)

Music streaming, a Nintendo classic franchise and Namco arcade fun on the Wii and a murder mystery on DSi next week.

WiiWare releases in Japan next Tuesday include something new in the form of Game Sound Station from Gust Co., Ltd. For 1000 points you get access to a number of tracks from dozens of video game soundtracks. You can then purchase tickets for listening to a larger number of tracks..

Nintendo Download: Final Fantasy, Even More Art, and Animal Crossing Apps (EU)

Final Fantasy, Even More Art, and Animal Crossing Apps (EU)

No love for the Virtual Console this week. Boooooooo!

Things were looking good for a short while - The VC seemed to be getting new games every week as of a month or so ago. But two weeks ago, and now again this week, there's not a single new VC game in sight - Please don't tell us Nintendo of Europe is going back to alternating VC and WiiWare weeks!...

Nintendo Download: Flip Champs, Final Fantasy IV, Boulder Dash (US)

Flip Champs, Final Fantasy IV, Boulder Dash (US)

A quartet of games for you lucky North American people

A four-game salvo awaits North American gamers this week; Mighty Flip Champs we already knew about but Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is likely to be the pick of the bunch for most Nintendo fans. The WiiWare release is set after the events of the fourth Final Fantasy game and promises the...

Nintendo Download: Space Harrier Arcade, Fish'em All and Art Style: NEMREM (EU)

Space Harrier Arcade, Fish'em All and Art Style: NEMREM (EU)

The first new arcade game since Virtual Console Arcade launched is accompanied by one more game for each service.

After last week's lack of a new VC game it's a bit surprising to see just one this week. At least it's a somewhat long-awaited one! The arcade version of Space Harrier is long overdue - Its Master System port and Mega Drive sequel have...

Finally North America gets Bubble Bobble and Adventure Island on WiiWare

This week the US Nintendo Download is playing catch-up with Europe except for a DSiWare app which is new. As a result we have already reviewed these games so you can get stuck right in if you like what you read! First up on DSiWare today is American Popstar: Road to Celebrity for 800 Nintendo points. This was released under..

Nintendo Download: Crystal Defenders R2, Penguins & Friends, PiCOPiCT and Pop Superstar (EU)

Crystal Defenders R2, Penguins & Friends, PiCOPiCT and Pop Superstar (EU)

Two WiiWare and two DSiWare titles for Europe this week.

It seems like there is no Virtual Console game this week. Last week, however, we thought there wasn't one either - Then it suddenly appeared on the Wii Shop half an hour later! Perhaps the same will happen this time. Crystal Defenders R2 isn't much of a surprise seeing as North America got it last Monday. You once again have to defend your..

Nintendo Download: Masks, Crystals, Chess and Art (US)

Masks, Crystals, Chess and Art (US)

The 300th VC game joins two WiiWare games and a single DSiWare release.

Many people saw it coming - The amount of Virtual Console games available in North America was nearing 300, so it was logical to assume that Nintendo of America was saving Majora's Mask in order to make it game number 300. That turns out to be true - The Legend of Zelda:...

19 May 2009 (Japan)

It's VC week!

Next week is a VC-heavy week for Japan with only one WiiWare title and four Virtual Console titles. The Japanese DSiWare front has been quiet since the 1st of the month which saw the release of the viewer for downloading videos from the latest Nintendo Wii channel: Wii no Ma. Shika Gari (sic) or Deer Hunt is a simple deer-hunting title and the sole WiiWare release for 500 points..

Nintendo Download: Swords & Soldiers, Pitfall and Even More Magic Tricks (EU)

Swords & Soldiers, Pitfall and Even More Magic Tricks (EU)

Fight some wars, whip some snakes or learn some more magic this week.

As announced last week, today sees the release of a certain anticipated WiiWare title. Joining it is a Mega Drive game and yet another set of magic tricks for your DSi! Swords & Soldiers is WiiWare's first RTS game. With its cartoony 2D graphics, fairly deep gameplay and multiple game modes it's certainly one of the more..

Nintendo Download: Soccer, Pirates and Galaxies (US)

Soccer, Pirates and Galaxies (US)

One new game for every downloadable service.

Last week's update wasn't exactly that hot. Unfortunately, the same can probably be said again this week. DSiWare's gone down from two games a week to one this time. At least it's a decent one! Real Soccer 2009 is pretty much a port of the DS game with the same name, which is really quite an achievement...

Nintendo Download: Fantasy Zone II, Rainbow Islands and More Magic (EU)

Fantasy Zone II, Rainbow Islands and More Magic (EU)

Two hits and one miss this week!

All the signs were pointing to a new Hanabi Festival starting today - Nintendo of Europe did not reveal today's new games in advance (Unlike the past two weeks) which lead us to believe there'd be something big. On top of that, it's "Golden Week" in Japan at the moment, a national holiday! How much longer are we gonna have to wait? It's not all that bad..

Nintendo Download: Clocks, Calculators, Penguins and Towers (US)

Clocks, Calculators, Penguins and Towers (US)

If you want to pay for something the DSi already has it's your lucky day!

As in the last few weeks there's two new games available on DSiWare today - But "games" isn't really the right word for them this time. The DSi already has a clock on its menu - The Animal Crossing Clock is really just a slightly more interesting variation. It's...

Bit.Trip Beat, Dr. Mario, Magic and Galaxy Force II (EU)

Alternating Virtual Console and WiiWare weeks come to an end!

WiiWare's almost been out for a year in Europe, and it seems that because of that, Nintendo of Europe has decided to start using the same schedule North America does - Releasing both VC and WiiWare games every week. Of course there's another DSiWare game as well. None of the games are actually available until tonight, NoE's simply chosen..

Nintendo Download: Clubhouse Games, Paper Planes, Platforms and Warring States (US)

Clubhouse Games, Paper Planes, Platforms and Warring States (US)

Nintendo of America's DSiWare push continues.

The pattern continues this week - Two new DSiWare games and one new game each for WiiWare and VC are available once again. Both DSiWare games are cut down versions of already existing games. Clubhouse Games Express: Card Classics includes five card games from Nintendo's DS game Clubhouse Games, but be...

Nintendo Download: 28 April 2009 (Japan)

28 April 2009 (Japan)

Another six releases for our Japanese friends.

I'm sure many in the PAL/NA territories will be green with envy and I've got to say I'm going to have a hard decision to make here. You see amongst the three WiiWare releases coming to Japan next week is Bit.Trip.Beat. Given that there's no projected release date for Europe whatsoever, can I resist temptation, especially when the game is only 500..

Adventure Island, Crystal Defenders R1 & Real Football 2009 (EU)

Another lovely lump of downloadable goodness lands in Europe

It's Nintendo Download time again folks! This week we've got a tasty trio of European gaming greatness to tell you about. Adventure Island: The Beginning (WiiWare, 1000 points) is Hudson's latest instalment in its long-running Adventure Island series. This 2.5 platform title - which stars legendary Hudson employee Takahashi Meijin - is..

Dr. Mario, Wonder Boy, More Magic Tricks and Crystal Defenders (US)

Yes, it's yet another update with two DSiWare games!

Art Style: CODE and Paper Plane are still absent - But don't worry too much, because you're now able to download Dr. Mario to your DSi. Dr. Mario Express is a simple portable version of Dr. Mario. But beware - You can only play the classic mode or Vs. CPU, there's no multiplayer mode! Naturally...
