    WiiWareBlue Oasis: Michi naru Shinkai (500pts - Hudson) — People in the know will recognise Blue Oasis as the Japanese name for Hudson's perennially popular virtual fish tank, My Aquarium.

    A bit of a catch-up week

    The Virtual Console takes another expected break to focus more on WiiWare and DSiWare this week, with five releases total spread across the both of them. All of them have already been released elsewhere, including a few in North America only a few days ago, so you can expect reviews for them all very shortly. WiiWareDive: The Medes Islands Secret (Cosmonaut Games, 1000pts)..

    Acrobats, skaters and more

    While North America has now suffered three consecutive weeks without a new retro game available for download, we're about to get another.

    Plenty for everyone

    As with every week, DSiWare gets the lion's share of releases this week, although most of it is not too stellar, or at least not likely to be.

    DSiWare galore!

    DSiWare gets another massive load of new games today, but they're probably not the things you'll mostly be wanting to pay attention to - Both WiiWare and the Virtual Console only get one game each, but they're both great and more than worthy of a look-see.

    Hidden gems galore?

    A lot of today's game titles might not say much to some people, but rest assured there's some good picks in this bunch. WiiWare gets three games, two of them great, and one not-yet-reviewed-but-very-likely-also-great. DSiWare's got five new titles of which the only reviewed one is good as well. The rest of the bunch could be more sleeper hits - Or not! The Virtual Console sadly..

    The WiiWare drought continues; VC and DSiWare releases only this week

    The Japanese WiiWare scene has been pretty quiet over the last month or so with only a couple of titles from Squaresoft. Given the past schedule with one release minimum per week, it does seem to imply a slowdown in development; whether or not that will be the case in other territories remains to be seen though it may account for..

    Nintendo serves up a certain ace

    It's the week of E3, and what better way to celebrate than by finally releasing another N64 Virtual Console game? And an extremely well-liked one, at that?

    We got so mixed up in the goings-on at E3, that we almost forgot to update you with what was released on the Japanese download services earlier this week.
