Bonsai Barber out in Europe this week

Zoonami celebrate the upcoming Euro launch of Bonsai Barber in style with a big carrot cake!

Way back in March in North America our pals at Nintendo published a cheeky WiiWare title by the name of Bonsai Barber. The game was quite unique as you get the chance to try out your skills as a barber on a bunch of willing vegetables. Sure, it’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but we found..

Icarian: Kindred Spirits flies onto WiiWare this Friday

If you live in Europe of course!

The good people at Over The Top Games have informed us that their WiiWare debut, Icarian: Kindred Spirits will be released on Friday, 19th June in Europe. It’s only fair that we get it first as the developer is Spanish, of course. The game will cost 1000 Nintendo points, but from what we have seen and heard it should be well worth the price of admission. Don't..

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: 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..

News: EU WiiWare Update: Texas Hold'em Tournament

EU WiiWare Update: Texas Hold'em Tournament

It seems like Nintendo of Europe thought that four arcade games were more than enough for this week, because today brings only one new WiiWare title to the table.

Texas Hold'em Tournament is the newest game from Digital Leisure, who already released The Incredible Maze and Sudoku Challenge! on WiiWare. We didn't think much of their previous efforts,...

News: EU VC Update: Super Punch-Out!!

EU VC Update: Super Punch-Out!!

Just as Nintendo of Europe announced yesterday, today only brings one new game, but it's a great one!

Super Punch-Out!! is the fourth game in the Punch-Out!! series. It's got a total of 16 opponents, both old and new, spread out across four circuits of increasing difficulty. The gameplay is pretty much exactly the same as in previous games, but...

News: EU WiiWare Update: Family Table Tennis and Jungle Speed

EU WiiWare Update: Family Table Tennis and Jungle Speed

It's another catch-up week for Europe, with one game the US has had forever and a game they got about two months ago.

Family Table Tennis came out two weeks after WiiWare's launch in the US, so they've almost had it for an entire year! It's the true first game in the "Family" series, but like the rest it's not really spectacular in any way...

News: EU VC Update: Clu Clu Land and Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair

EU VC Update: Clu Clu Land and Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair

Let's see how generous Nintendo is for Europe this week - We get a game the US already has and a game which is already available in a superior form!

Clu Clu Land is likely the third-last non-import Nintendo game for the NES (The last remaining likely games being Golf and Pro Wrestling). You play as Bubbles as you float around a maze, grabbing poles...

News: EU VC Update: MERCS and Winter Games

EU VC Update: MERCS and Winter Games

This week offers no real surprises for Europe. One game was released in the US last week instead of ClayFighter, heavily hinting it would hit Europe soon, and the other game was bound to come sometime!

Wolf of the Battlefield: MERCS is the second game in the Commando series. You can take control of one of a number of muscular characters as you trek through jungles, mountains and villages blowing up..

News: EU VC Update: ClayFighter and Sonic Chaos

EU VC Update: ClayFighter and Sonic Chaos

Hanabi Festival enthusiasts have to wait a bit longer, it seems - Due to recent OFLC ratings, many thought one would be right around the corner, but Nintendo seems to have given this VC week to Sega instead.

The first new game this week is ClayFighter for the Mega Drive. Attempting to cash in on other popular games at the time, such as Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, Visual Concepts created one..

News: EU VC Update: Mario Golf and Wonder Boy in Monster Land

EU VC Update: Mario Golf and Wonder Boy in Monster Land

This week, Europe finally gets another N64 game! Can you believe it's been almost 8 months since the last one? Accompanying it is what is likely to be the last Wonder Boy game on VC.

Mario Golf was strangely already released in the US and Japan months ago before finally appearing in Europe this week. This is the first Mario Golf game, and although...

News: EU VC Update: Secret of Mana and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Master System)

EU VC Update: Secret of Mana and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Master System)

Today's update was already revealed a few days ago - No additional games have been added to the two games that were announced, but does it really matter when one of them is Secret of Mana?

Secret of Mana is probably Square's most well-known SNES game aside from the Final Fantasies and Chrono Trigger. Unlike those two, it's an action RPG - There's no...

Mana From Heaven For RPG Fans On Boxing Day In Europe

Hopefully European readers have asked Santa for lots of Wii points this Christmas as it seems ours pals at Nintendo have been holding back on you for a boxing day surprise this coming Friday.

Obviously the surprise is completely ruined now! Isn’t the Internet good for doing that? All the same we think you will be delighted to hear that one of the best RPGs ever is finally coming out in Europe..

News: EU VC Update: Last Ninja 3, Impossible Mission II and Boogerman

EU VC Update: Last Ninja 3, Impossible Mission II and Boogerman

After a short hiatus, the Commodore 64 is back with two new games - One is easily one of the most stunning games on the system, while the other is a good platform/action game. They're accompanied by a platformer on the Mega Drive.

Last Ninja 3 is the final part of the Last Ninja series. It's basically more of the same - Explore your isometric surroundings to find key items, kill enemies and solve..

News: EU VC Update: Metal Slug 2, Forgotten Worlds and Space Invaders

EU VC Update: Metal Slug 2, Forgotten Worlds and Space Invaders

Not many surprises for Europe again this week! It's basically the exact same as the US update last week, with the addition of one more game.

Metal Slug 2 basically just builds on the standard set by the original Metal Slug. If you like rock-hard shooting/platforming action this is the game for you! This time, there's four characters to play as, more weapons, more "Slugs" to ride, more..
