    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)..

  • News Rising Star Wants to Know the Games You Want, Europe

    Let them know and who knows what may happen

    Rising Star Games has already brought European gamers the likes of Rune Factory Frontier and both No More Heroes titles, and later this year is releasing Yuji Naka's Ivy the Kiwi? games, Eldar Saga and Rune Factory 2 for DS. It's quite a busy year for the publisher but it's hungry for more, and is opening...

    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. It's accompanied by a bunch of DSiWare and WiiWare games that might not be to the liking of everybody. WiiWareArcade Sports Air Hockey, Bowling, Pool, Snooker (800pts - Icon Games) – A collection of "arcade" games, but not..

  • News Dive: The Medes Islands Secret to Surface on WiiWare Next Week

    For gamers on both sides of the Atlantic

    Cosmonaut Games has just confirmed the North American release date of its next outing, the WiiWare title that one of its designers described as "an underwater Metroid". The company has also released a batch of new screenshots to coincide with the announcement. Launching on the download service in North America next week on the 26th July and in..

  • News Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes Unleashes Its Kiai This October

    From the producer of Devil May Cry 4

    16th Century Japan is remembered mostly for its poetry and samurais; we think we all know which of those two we'd rather see in our video games (unless you wear a beret), and Capcom knows it too. Capcom has announced that Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes for the Wii will be launching on October 15 in Europe and Australia. From Hiroyuki Kobayashi, the producer of..

  • News Nintendo's European Release Schedule Offers Few Surprises

    Unless you love Scooby-Doo

    The news of Last Window: The Secret of Cape West heading to Europe is just one nugget from the latest Nintendo Europe press release outlining its schedule from now until the end of September. While this means that there's no sight of its big 2010 titles like Kirby's Epic Yarn, Donkey Kong Country Returns and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, it's

  • News Last Window Coming to Europe in September

    Hotel Dusk sequel picked up for localisation

    It's been a long wait to see if Last Window, developed by the sadly bankrupt Cing, would be heading to Western shores, but Nintendo has revealed the game will be coming to Europe in September. Players take the role of detective Kyle Hyde, returning from Hotel Dusk: Room 215, for another mystery-packed...

  • Nintendo Download 16th July 2010 (Europe)

    Flying and fighting on Wii; French, Darkness, solitaire and 3D tanks on DSi

    Another Virtual Console holiday, but WiiWare gets Pearl Harbored and then engages in some funky fighting. Conspicuous by its absence is Furry Legends, previously believed to be released this Friday but Gamelion has confirmed to us there will be an announcement of its new release date in the near future. WiiWarePearl Harbor..

  • Nintendo Download 9th July (Europe)

    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. WiiWare gets a long-awaited fighter plus an interesting Nintendo-published title, while VC gets another ninja action game. WiiWareToribash (1000pts - Nabi Studios) -- A very strange fighting game which is quite popular on PC, you fight as..

  • News Metroid: Other M Launches Across Europe on 3rd September 2010

    Not long for Samus fans to wait now!

    Good news Euro friends, we’ve just had word from the Big N that Metroid: Other M will be launched across Europe on 3rd September. Only a few days behind the North American release date of 31st August which is nice. Not much longer to wait now! To whet your appetite for Team Ninja’s 2.5D reboot of the Metroid saga, why not check out our hands on impressions..

  • Nintendo Download 2nd July (Europe)

    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. WiiWare: Jett Rocket (1000pts - Shin'en Multimedia) -- A 3D platformer with...

  • News Ball Fighter Starts Bashing Europe this Friday

    Teyon's puzzle game makes the leap across the pond

    It's been available in North America since late 2009, but coloured ball-breaker Ball Fighter from Polish team Teyon is finally heading to DSiWare in Europe this Friday. Priced at 500 Points, the game is a combination of familiar puzzle games, including Puzzle Bobble and Magical Drop, but is overall...

  • Nintendo Download 25th June (Europe)

    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..

  • Nintendo Download 18th June (Europe)

    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? WiiWare gets one great and one good game as well, but DSiWare seems fairly uninteresting this time. WiiWareAnt Nation (700pts - Konami) -- A simulation title from Konami in which you manage a colony of ants, this..

  • Nintendo Download 11th June 2010 (Europe)

    Plenty of puzzling, some strategy and racing, and an import

    Despite the release of Super Mario Galaxy 2 today, Nintendo of Europe isn't neglecting their download services. The Virtual Console gets a new one-off import game while WiiWare and DSiWare get a whole bunch of catchup titles, plus one completely new game. WiiWareNEVES Plus: Pantheon of Tangrams (500pts - Abylight) -- It took almost a year..

  • News Rising Star to Bring Rune Factory 2 and More to Europe in Autumn

    My World, My Way and Eldar Saga on the way too

    European publisher Rising Star Games is responsible for bringing across some of the more original critically-acclaimed titles, localising feudal side-scrolling slasher Muramasa: The Demon Blade, monarchic masterpiece Little King's Story and most of the Harvest Moon series in recent years. Just before E3...

  • Nintendo Download 4th June 2010 (Europe)

    Beavers and Brains on Wii, Books, Music, Upside-Down Puzzling and still more Sudoku on DSi this week in Europe.

    Retro fans will be disappointed at another week without a Virtual Console release, but hopefully we'll be seeing Wild Guns here soon. Otherwise it's mainly a catch-up week for Europe on Wii and DSi. WiiWareRobocalypse: Beaver Defense (600pts - Vogster) -- This tongue-in-cheek tower..

  • Nintendo Download 30th April 2010 (Europe)

    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..

  • News Flowerworks Coming to PAL Land

    WiiWare floral fireworks game getting extra features for European/Australiasian release

    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. Flowerworks was something of a pleasant surprise when it was released last December in North America, so we're glad to see people in Europe and the developer's..

    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..

  • News 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..

  • Nintendo Download 16th April 2010 (Europe)

    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..

  • Nintendo Download 2nd April 2010 (Europe)

    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..

  • News 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..

  • News Art Of Balance Leaning Towards Europe

    Shin'en Multimedia announces release date and pricing

    Following the game's American release last month, this WiiWare puzzler will have you stacking various blocks to form a stable construction will be available on the Wii Shop Channel in a couple of weeks. Think you've got steady hands and fast reflexes? Art of Balance will see if you do. If you're not familiar with the game, head on over to our..

    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..

    One single Virtual Console game in three weeks. Again.

    But don't feel let down again, because it's actually quite a solid week this time. With DSiWare still being almost completely taken up by Electroplankton rereleases, there's only one real "new" game for each service, but all of them are (or seem to be) good picks. Possibly to tie in with today's release of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, Capcom..

    The Virtual Console gets abandoned again.

    You've got to wonder what's going on over at Nintendo of Europe. For the second time, we've now gone two weeks in a row without a VC title, despite knowing that there's still plenty of them upcoming. Come on, NoE! Just like last week, there's really only one noteworthy title - The rest is completely...

  • Nintendo Download 15 January 2010 (Europe)

    And thus it becomes even harder to say anything positive about Nintendo of Europe.

    After not releasing any Virtual Console games for Christmas and the week after, you'd think Nintendo would've learned their lesson when they finally release one last week. But no, they're back to their old tricks again, as this week offers next to nothing all around. The Wii only gets a single new downloadable game..

  • Nintendo Download 8 January 2010 (Europe)

    Virtual Console returns!

    After two weeks of very few interesting downloadable games, today offers us some potentially good titles. The Virtual Console gets one new game (And a good one, at that) while WiiWare gets two and DSiWare gets three. The first Virtual Console game in 3 weeks is Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi on the Mega Drive. Released...

  • News EU WiiWare Update: Beer Pong and Snowboard Riot

    It had to happen some day. We’d been hoping and praying that it would pass us by; that maybe Nintendo, in its infinite mercy would deem us Europeans likeable enough to avoid such digital garbage, but sadly it wasn’t to be. We’re sorry to report that the lamentable Beer Pong! Frat Party Games – the game that proved that quality and popularity don’t always go hand-in-hand by topping the US WiiWare charts for God knows how long - is now available on the EU WiiWare service.

    The video game equivalent of watching paint dry (only not as exciting)..
