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

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..

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

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...

Nintendo Download: 21 April 2009 (Japan)

21 April 2009 (Japan)

Green shades anyone?

In Japan you simply cannot have a download release list that's less than four games and next week will be no exception with a mixed total of six. Only two WiiWare releases: World of Goo published by Nintendo themselves for 1500 points -- I think everyone knows what this game is by now! Hajiite Block Rush from Agenda for 500 points -- this one looks very pretty, but I'm not..

Nintendo Download: Alex Kidd, Secret Command and Mixed Messages (EU)

Alex Kidd, Secret Command and Mixed Messages (EU)

Two Sega Master System games and the first DSiWare update for Europe.

Not much to get excited about this time - Other than Secret Command, today's picks are fairly weak. Alex Kidd: The Lost Stars was already released in North America a while ago. It's the second game in the Alex Kidd series and basically the beginning of the end for Sega's original...

Nintendo Download: Mixed Messages, Pitfalls, Magic Tricks and Pirates (US)

Mixed Messages, Pitfalls, Magic Tricks and Pirates (US)

This week brings a new western publisher on board - Activision! And they haven't just released one game, but two!

If you bought a DSi you'll be quite glad to hear that there's already some new games available this week. Of course the Wii Shop gets its usual new WiiWare and VC game as well! Mixed Messages is Activision's first DSiWare game. It's pretty simple - First, you enter a sentence. Then, you..

Nintendo Download: 14 April 2009 (Japan)

14 April 2009 (Japan)

Another week, another 5 releases for Japan.

It's true the Japanese have another week with a mix of VC and WiiWare content, but Wii owners in North America and Europe need not feel the usual pangs of jealousy (well, I guess that depends on how much you've been wanting to see a couple of these...). On the WiiWare front we have a couple of things that will likely stay in Japan and something we already..

Nintendo Download: Bubble Bobble Plus! & More WiiWare Goodies (EU)

Bubble Bobble Plus! & More WiiWare Goodies (EU)

Bub and Bob come to WiiWare today!

It seems like Nintendo of Europe wants to make up for their single WiiWare release two weeks ago - This week there's not one, not two, but three new games available! Sadly there are no new DSiWare games today, you can’t have everything you want can you? Bubble Bobble Plus! is obviously the biggest release of the bunch - This remake of the original game features..

Nintendo Download: DSiWare, Equilibrio & Uncharted Waters (US)

DSiWare, Equilibrio & Uncharted Waters (US)

A monster DSiWare update to kick off the new North American ‘Nintendo Download’. Worry not, Wiiware and VC fans are not completely forgotten this week either.

As you will see this week’s 'Nintendo Download' update is a bit of a beast as it includes all the DSiWare launch titles (which of course came out on Sunday!). For those thinking about...

Nintendo Download: 7th April 2009 (Japan)

7th April 2009 (Japan)

Another games tsunami hits the Japanese Wii Shop!

You know I just bought 6000 Wii points for the PAL service expecting a ton of new WiiWare and Virtual Console Arcade titles to appear imminently. I may be somewhat impatient, but it's extra disheartening to see two single-release Fridays in a row and then the nearly non-stop flood of content hitting Japan week after week. Next week the Japanese..

Nintendo Download: DSiWare Launch Games and Majora's Mask (EU)

DSiWare Launch Games and Majora's Mask (EU)

DSiWare makes a splash while Link experiences a Groundhog Day

The European launch of the shiny new Nintendo DSi has predictably been accompanied by a smattering of equally shiny new DSiWare games. European gamers can choose from the following downloadable items: Art Style: AQUITE - 500 Nintendo points Art Style: CODE - 500 Nintendo points Birds...
