Let's get ready to rumble
This week brings an unexpected release! You were probably expecting Snowboard Riot to be Hudson's next WiiWare game in Europe. Surprise surprise, because they have instead chosen to release Onslaught!
Onslaught was only announced for European/American release about a week ago, but it's already available now! The game is, shockingly enough, a first person shooter - The first on WiiWare. In fact,..
The news wire has spoken and it has been revealed that lucky European WiiWare fans have two new releases to sink their teeth into this week, so let's have a look at what's afoot, shall we?
Puzzle game Pop Them, Drop Them SAMEGAME unquestionably wins the award for stupidest moniker of the month, but the jury is still out on whether or not this is worth a look. It’s from Hudson and only costs 500..
Seemingly following up to last week's rather sub-par VC update, this week doesn't really bring many exciting games to WiiWare! There's just one lone new game available today - The first WiiWare update since WiiWare launched to only have one game.
That game is Lonpos, which has been available in Japan since WiiWare launched for them! Lonpos is yet...
Not many surprises for Europe today to start off 2009 - One game was already announced beforehand, and the other was almost guaranteed to come out! It's still a nice duo of games, however.
Fun! Fun! Minigolf was released in the US two weeks ago. As the title implies this is a golf game - Graphically it's easily one of the strongest games on WiiWare, but the game is sort of lacking in actual..
With only one week to go until Christmas, it seems that Nintendo are full of festive cheer and have prepared the mother of all WiiWare updates to ensure your holiday season kicks off with a bang.
First up with have the sublime World of Goo, what more can be said about this great game which hasn’t already been said? If you been living in a cave or...
Rejoice, European WiiWare fans! 2Dboy - the developer of the awesome World of Goo – has confirmed that the game will be making its EU debut this coming Friday. Australia and New Zealand are also going to be getting their fair share of goo-goodness, too.
The game was released in the US some months ago and has become something of a poster boy for...
Nintendo has once again shown some serious love to European Wii owners today with the release of a whopping four WiiWare titles.
That's right; if you're a Euro Wii owner then you have Art Style: Rotohex, Bang!, Pit Crew Panic!, and Strong Bad Episode 4: Dangeresque 3 to choose from. You lucky ducks! We’ve already covered Art Style: Rotohex, Pit Crew Panic!, and Strong Bad Episode 4: Dangeresque..
Nintendo clearly has the hots for the European continent today because it has unleashed not one, not two, not three but FOUR new WiiWare titles for download!
That’s right; if you’re a Euro Wii owner then you have Art Style: Cubello, Cue Sports: Snooker vs Billiards, Strong Bad Episode 3 and Yummy Yummy Cooking Jam to choose from. You lucky things! We’ve already covered Cubello, Yummy Yummy..
It is no secret that the World of Goo is our favourite WiiWare game to date here at WiiWare World. Indeed when we reviewed it last month it achieved the unthinkable and obtained WiiWare World’s first 10/10 score!
The only downside was that our friends at 2D Boy signed up to a deal with RTL Games for the European distribution and they were not...
European WiiWare fans who have jealously been coveting the recent Art Style games which North America has been spoilt with will soon be put out of their misery. The initial three games will be coming to Europe soon thankfully.
All three games Cubello, Rotohex and Orbient have received solid reviews from WiiWare World, each attracting a score of...
This week doesn't just bring us one game from a high-profile developer - It brings us two! They come together with yet another game from one of WiiWare's strongest supporters, Gameloft.
The release of Alien Crush Returns shouldn't really come as a surprise if you keep an eye on every region's releases - The US got it earlier this week. Alien Crush...
Today's European releases aren't very surprising - It's basically Monday's American update, plus one more game which was expected to be coming out soon.
Tetris Party is the latest installment of the endlessly entertaining Tetris series. With 18 different gameplay modes and an online versus mode, this is yet another refreshing take on the series and...
Good news for Europeans wanting a Tetris fix - You won't have to wait long for Tetris Party!
Tetris Online, Inc. revealed earlier today that the game will be released in Europe this Friday. That's just a 4 day wait - Thankfully this means the online skill difference between the US and Europe won't be that big! With a ton of both old and new modes, and online battles, this certainly seems like one..
Let's pretend there were no new WiiWare games this week and call it a day. It'd probably be better than what we really got.
First up is the dreadful Midnight Bowling, which was released in the US earlier this week. Not much companies have bothered to make any competition for Wii Sports's bowling minigame yet - This is probably the reason why. Midnight Bowling throws everything Wii Sports did so..
You'd better have some Wii Points ready as there are three new games are available today, and all of them are good! All three have already been out in North America for a short time, so it can be considered somewhat of a catch-up update.
Mega Man 9 needs no introduction unless you have been living in a cave for the past few months! The game has been designed by Capcom to look, sound and play just..
Ed Roman, CEO of Austin-based game developer Ghostfire Games has just informed us that their WiiWare title Helix is coming to the European WiiWare service this Friday, September 26 for 1000 Wii Points. Now European gamers can enjoy the same unique music/rhythm game that US gamers have been enjoying for the past few weeks.
You can check out our full review of Helix, along with our exclusive..
It seems that European gamers have hit the jackpot today with an unprecedented three WiiWare releases. Plättchen: Twist 'n' Paint, Bomberman Blast, and Midnight Pool have all been added to the European WiiWare service for you to enjoy!
Midnight Pool (800 Wii Points) has already seen a release in the US, but European gamers are the first to get a taste of Bomberman Blast (1000 Wii Points) and..
Europe finally gets chance to sample the ‘delights’ of Konami's Critter Round-Up thanks to this week’s WiiWare update.
Although it’s nice to see EU gamers catching up with their North American counterparts (Critter Round-Up came out in the US in May) it’s a shame that the actual game is so uninspiring. We didn’t think much to it – feel free to check out our review. It costs 1000 Wii..
Not much of a surprise in Europe today, as both of today's releases were already confirmed by their publishers beforehand! You have the choice of relaxing by watching virtual fish, or helping out the most awesome guy on the planet (Well, according to himself!).
The first episode of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, Homestar Ruiner, is...
Hold the front page! We’ve just had confirmation from Hudson that its virtual fish tank simulator My Aquarium will be hitting the European WiiWare service this Friday (15th).
There's no word on the North American release date as yet. Our contact at Hudson has revealed that the company is still waiting for final approval from Nintendo of America, but is hopeful of also granting the game an August..
Lucky European gamers have been gifted not one but two WiiWare releases today. Hurrah!
Wild West Guns is a neat-looking shooter that attempts to capture the thrills and spills of traditional light gun titles. It reminds us a little of Konami’s crusty old arcade shooter Lethal Enforcers II: Gunfighters – hopefully it’s a bit better! Expect our review soon. This will set you back 1000 Wii..
Here’s a spot of good news before the weekend. From next Friday, 1st August, European and Australian gamers will finally be able to download the rather excellent Defend Your Castle from their Wii Shop. The price will remain at a handsome 500 Wii points too! For those who are interested to know more you can check out our Defend Your Castle review to find out what the buzz is all about.
It's WiiWare week for Europe again, and this time there are once again two new games available. Although you might as well say it's just one, as one of them was already released in the US and was found to be rather shockingly bad.
The "new" game of the bunch is Pirates: The Key of Dreams, in which you can play as a pirate, sailing the seas, recruiting new men, battling other ships,..
Continuing the trend of alternating VC and WiiWare weeks, this week, there are two new WiiWare games available in Europe.
Undoubtedly, My Pokémon Ranch will get more attention than the other title today. However, we wonder if this is fair at all, because in our opinion Ranch is rather disappointing. If you're an avid Pokémon player you will probably get some enjoyment out of the "game"..
We’ve all complained that NoE never tell us what’s coming to WiiWare ahead of time. Not so this week, they’ve confirmed that you’ll be able to download My Pokémon Ranch this Friday, 4th July.
We have to admit to not being all that impressed with this game at WiiWare World, but of course there will be some amongst our readers who will want to investigate this for themselves. For the..
It would seem that Nintendo of Europe have firmly decided on a pattern for WiiWare and VC releases now. Last week you got two WiiWare games, so this week you get none!
It's not all doom and gloom however. There are 5 new Virtual Console games to choose from and none of them are stinkers: Super Fantasy Zone - Megadrive Pac-Attack - SNES King of the...
You’ll have to forgive us but there’s a tangible feeling of déjà vu in the air here at WiiWare World, because this week’s releases happen to be the exact same ones North America was graced only a few short days ago.
That’s right – European Wii owners can indulge in some fantasy-fishing with Cocoto Fishing Master or bust some blocks with Block Breaker Deluxe. Or both! Cocoto Fishing..
As you’ve probably noticed by now, there are no WiiWare releases for Europe this week. It seems that Nintendo feels you’ll have more than enough to keep you busy with the 5 Virtual Console games that came out today.
Or perhaps the Japanese giant believes that the stunning news that Super Mario RPG is coming to the Virtual Console will be enough to keep the masses happy for this week at least?..
Just one EU WiiWare release this week, and it’s the neat little puzzler Actionloop Twist (known in North America as Magnetica Twist).
Originally developed in 1998 by Mitchell Corporation (the guys who did Pang), Actionloop also goes by the name Puzzloop in Japan and has been copied under the name Zuma. So, chances are, you've probably played this before in some shape or form! The gameplay is..
This was the day PAL Wii owners had been feverishly waiting for. Finally, after months of anticipation and hype, Nintendo’s WiiWare service has launched in Europe, bringing with it the tantalizing potential of ‘videogame publishing without frontiers’ – not to mention new headaches about internal storage space.
After a week of claim, counter-claim, conjecture and idle speculation (all of..
With the US WiiWare launch fading into memory, it’s the turn of European gamers to start getting excited about upcoming downloadable content. WiiWare hits the ‘old world’ on 20th May, and surprisingly European Wii owners will be getting eight games instead of the six that arrived on North American shores.
LostWinds and Final Fantasy CC: My Life As A King are undoubtedly two of the big draws,..
Nintendo of Europe today issued a press release containing the dates for multiple games to be released in Q2. While no doubt plenty of people will be happy Super Smash Bros. Brawl is included in the list, of note to this site is the fact that both upcoming Wii features have been dated.
WiiWare will be added to the Wii Shop on the 20th of May. No specific titles have been announced to release on..
