Nintendo celebrates the 100th WiiWare release in style.

Last week saw the release of a single WiiWare game in Europe, which happened to be the 99th - Logically, we all assumed that this meant Nintendo of Europe was saving something special as 100th release. Thankfully, we were right - One of today's new WiiWare games is a sequel to a launch game...

Muramasa Slices into Europe Next Month!

Demon Blade to pierce Euro souls on November 13th

Just as we were gearing ourselves up not to see Muramasa: The Demon Blade nestling in our European Wiis until April next year, Rising Star Games swoop to the rescue by letting us know it is confirmed for a release on November 13th, just six short weeks away. We've already reviewed it based on the US version but that doesn't mean we'll be stopping..

Star Wars, Art Style and Escape Game (EU)

One new game for each service

Just three new games this week, but the offerings are quite good - Virtual Console and DSiWare get two new games in familiar series while WiiWare gets a puzzle game Japan has had since December last year. Of course the biggest release of the week is Super Empire Strikes Back, the second SNES Star Wars game. As you can probably guess, it's based on Episode V of the..

WiiWare plays catchup to North America while VC and DSiWare both get one new game.

WiiWare this week is mostly predictable - All three games have been out in North America for some time, and two of them were even specifically announced for release today. VC and DSiWare are a bit more surprising, although neither of them has really gotten something great. You, Me and the Cubes is Nintendo's latest..

Something for people of all ages.

Although WiiWare and DSiWare have a lot of games left to get this year, if everything on Nintendo's list actually comes out, that doesn't mean the Virtual Console is going to suffer from it (At least not yet) - Today sees the release of two new retro games, just like last week. WiiWare gets two games as well, while DSiWare gets a single application. For most..

Nintendo of Europe Announce WiiWare and DSiWare Plans for 2009

NoE has once again revealed a bunch of their upcoming downloadable games in advance.

Today, Nintendo of Europe held a press event for the announcement of a whole bunch of DSiWare and WiiWare titles. And it paid off - There's at least 37 WiiWare games left for the rest of the year, so it looks like we're going to get at least 2 every single week from now until 2010! DSiWare also has quite a hefty..

Rygar, Solomon's Key, Spaceball and Solitaire (EU)

The last two weeks had no new Virtual Console games, but this time there's two.

Finally, some more Virtual Console Arcade support from a publisher other than Sega! It's not Namco, with their gigantic catalogue of arcade games already available in Japan, but rather Tecmo, who has chosen to release two more of their coin-op classics. Rygar is very different from the more well-known NES game of the..

New free Wii Channel launches in Europe tomorrow.

Japan's gotten a number of Wii Channels the past two or so years which the rest of the world has yet to see - Still nothing has been said about a western release of the TV Guide channel, the Wii no Ma channel and others. Well, except for one of them - Since late 2008, Japan has had a channel with which you could read your horoscope. This channel..

Contra Rebirth, Dictionary 6 in 1 (EU)

A very underwhelming week for Europe.

Aside from the previously announced Contra Rebirth things in Europe this week are pretty abysmal - Just one other new downloadable thing and it's another DSiWare application with highly limited use! Contra Rebirth is almost bound to be a great pick - It seems very similar to Contra III/Super Probotector on the SNES in terms of graphical style, which means..

Contra is Reborn in Europe Tomorrow

Finally a new Contra game for Europeans!

It's been a long time since a new Contra game was released in Europe - Although an awesome game, Contra 4 on DS never made the jump to European stores. What made this even weirder is the fact that it actually included the European Probotector robots as unlockable characters! Thankfully this latest installment in the series will see European release - And it..

The Virtual Console takes another break.

No huge surprises this week - WiiWare sees a game North America got earlier this week, along with Gameloft's latest, while DSiWare gets a single game already previously announced. Mr. Driller W is the latest in Namco's now quite well-known Mr. Driller series - A spin-off of the Dig Dug series, you play as the son of its protagonist as you try to dig your way..

Sequel to a relatively unknown SNES game available very soon.

If you've kept your eye on the various rating boards, you might've noticed that a game called Oscar in Toyland has been rated as DSiWare release for quite a while now. Out of the blue, it has now been announced that the game will be released in this Friday's European Wii and DSi update. Only recently did we learn that this is actually a..

An all-star lineup for Europe this week!

There's a total of 5 new releases this week - And all of them are highly regarded games! Among them are two new Nintendo games, which, as Nintendo claims, are both being released because of this week's German Gamescom event. The Virtual Console finally gets a certain SNES launch title which strangely hasn't been made available yet - Pilotwings, a flight sim..

DSiWare and Virtual Console both get a Nintendo game.

The hotly anticipated Flipnote Studio only just came out, but Nintendo seems to have decided to continue supporting their download services with their own games - They're releasing another two of them later this week. Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again is the third game in the Mario vs...

2 DSiWare and WiiWare games, and one Virtual Console game.

For the first time in quite a while, this week brings us two new DSiWare games. Today's other new releases aren't exactly surprising! For DSiWare, there's the previously announced Flipnote Studio, a nifty application which lets you draw your very own animations, which you can then fine-tune in various ways before uploading them to a special..

The Virtual Console takes a break after the Hanabi Festival.

After North America did not get any VC games the last two weeks some people were rightfully worried that Europe would also not get any new ones as soon as the Hanabi Festival was over. Those worries were well warranted, because as it turns out, indeed, there's not one new VC game tonight! Instead, there's a whopping three new WiiWare..

Prepare to open Pandora's Box in September

Professor Layton and Pandora's Box dated for Europe.

We’ve just got word from Nintendo Europe that their DS puzzle fest Professor Layton and Pandora's Box will launch on 25th September in Europe. Predictably our friends in North America will get the game slightly earlier on the 24th August where it will be known as Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box instead just to confuse everybody!
