Bit.Trip, Phoenix and Ghouls on the Wii, fire-fighting, platforming action and brain busting on the DSi this week in Europa

WiiWareBit.Trip RUNNER (800pts - Aksys Games) -- Europe gets the first try at the latest entry in the minimalist, retro-rhythm game series from Gaijin Games. We loved the time we spent playing the final release version, so if you want to re-up your hype factor re-read our..

North American date still to be announced

Not only can you enjoy all the meerkat-leading fun you've ever dreamt of,..

BIT.TRIP RUNNER to Race Across Europe on May 14th

Out in the US three days later

Each of Gaijin Games' previous releases in the BIT.TRIP series have taken at least a month to make it across the pond, with the last release, BIT.TRIP VOID, taking three months. Seemingly stricken with deep regret, Gaijin's making amends by bringing BIT.TRIP RUNNER to Europe first, even if only by a few days. In just one week on Friday you'll be able to blip, bloop..

Catching up with North America

It seems pretty much all the releases featured this week have already been seen in North America, though there is something new in the form of some additional DLC for Mega Man 10 and Simply Solitaire for the DSi. Since some of these releases only came out Monday in North America we don't have reviews up for them all just yet, but bear with us, they're coming..

The folks at Nocturnal have just let us know that their WiiWare debut, Flowerworks is coming to PAL territories with a new subtitle: Follie's Adventure.

Doctors for the Wii, worms, fish, notebooks and watches for the DSi this week in Europe

There's only a couple of brand new games for Europe this coming Friday, with most of the DSiWare offerings and the Virtual Console release being catch-up titles with North America - though we welcome them to the European DSi and Wii Shops all the same. DSiWareEarthworm Jim (500pts - Gameloft) -- In the absence..

NEVES Plus: Pantheon of Tangrams Set for EU WiiWare

Known simply as NEVES Plus in the U.S. and Lucky Puzzle in Japan

It's been a while since the game got its American and Japanese release, but European puzzle fans can now stop wondering whether it will appear on the Wii Shop Channel or not as Abylight has informed us NEVES Plus: Pantheon of Tangrams is doing just that. The game will be localised in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, and..

Mega Man, Mr. Driller, gladiators and more

There's a little bit for everyone this week, as all three services get at least one good to great title. DSiWare obviously steals the show again with the usual four releases, while WiiWare gets two and the Virtual Console gets its usual one. Keep in mind these games won't be available until midnight (Central European Time), Nintendo has just revealed the..

The original Mario Kart! Oh, and some other stuff.

It took quite a while, but one of the most wanted Virtual Console games has finally been released in Europe, after hitting both North America and Japan last year. This week's WiiWare and DSiWare releases consist almost exclusively of games already released in North America as well, with just one DSiWare title being "new"! Super Mario Kart..

Super Mario Kart Races to Europe on Friday

Virtual Console owners, start your Points cards!

It's been a long wait for European gamers to race around those classic 16-bit courses in the original Super Mario Kart: out in North America since November last year, and Japan since June, there's been barely a sniff of it outside those territories. The wait is nearly over though, as Nintendo has confirmed the game will be available to download on..

This Hanabi Festival's final game, with some nice things on WiiWare and DSiWare as well.

As previously announced by Nintendo, the Hanabi Festival wasn't over just yet. This week brings us one last import game, and it's quite a highly anticipated one, at that. They could've just left it at that and called it a day, but they've also added a second, non-import Virtual Console game, just to keep the..

More Hanabi Festival, plenty of DSiWare and one lonely WiiWare game

Several people were disappointed Nintendo of Europe didn't start off the latest Hanabi Festival with a certain vampire-slaying game last week, but there's no need to complain any more - It's out now! It brings with it a rather tedious little NES import, which might also mean this is already the final week of the Festival, as there..

The Hanabi Festival kicks off, but sadly not with its most anticipated game.

It seemed quite likely that Nintendo of Europe would be starting the fifth Hanabi Festival with some Castlevania goodness, but as it turns out, this is not the case! At least there's two different import games instead, one of which is another highly recommended title. WiiWare gets the short end of the stick for once with..

"Retro" delights from Capcom, along with plenty of other things.

There's quite a lot to downloads to pick from this week. The Virtual Console makes yet another return after being nowhere in sight the past two weeks, while Capcom has released not one, but two new "retro" games at once. Also finally available in Europe is the third installment in the Bit.Trip series, along with several..

The Virtual Console is still nowhere in sight, but at least there's Castlevania!

Believe it or not, this is the sixth week of this year in which we haven't gotten any new Virtual Console games. The amount of weeks in which we have is actually lower! Nintendo partially makes up for it by releasing a ton of games on the other services, but the situation on the retro front is obviously quite..

Another no-show for the Virtual Console.

Things were looking alright for a while, but Nintendo of Europe has gone back to their old tricks once again, as this week offers us no new Virtual Console titles. Not to worry too much though, because at least there's 7 downloads spread across the other two services! On WiiWare, the biggest release is, no doubt, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice For..

Increasing the amount of games ever so slowly.

Nintendo of Europe's planned games for today seemed almost set in stone since last week, but over the past few days we suddenly got a handful of extra games to complement update, bringing the total amount of new things this week up to seven. Still not quite as much as elsewhere, but at least they're inching their way ever closer! By far the biggest..

Rising Star Confirms European Release of No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

Return to the Gardens of Madness in April!

Today Rising Star games confirmed what many had suspected, but had never officially been announced: namely that they're handling the publication of Grasshopper Manufacture's eagerly anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed 2008 release, No More Heroes. Naturally we just couldn't wait and had to review the North American release, which we found to be..

Two anticipated titles finally arrive.

The Virtual Console seems to be in full swing in Europe again, after a rather lackluster period - We got Street Fighter Alpha 2 last week, and we're getting Sonic & Knuckles the next. The space inbetween isn't empty either, because Capcom has chosen to release two games in a row. Meanwhile, on WiiWare, we've finally gotten a certain racing game from..
