Nintendo Download: Wars, Conquests, Rivalries and... Fish? (US)

Wars, Conquests, Rivalries and... Fish? (US)

There seems to be a very clear theme this week!

There's only really one surprise this week, and it's the weekly Virtual Console title. All of this week's WiiWare and DSiWare releases were already announced last week! On VC, you can go to war in another classic Koei strategy game for the SNES - Genghis Khan II: Clan of the Gray Wolf. It's not as...

Clubhouse Games, Paper Planes, Platforms and Warring States (US)

Nintendo of America's DSiWare push continues.

The pattern continues this week - Two new DSiWare games and one new game each for WiiWare and VC are available once again. Both DSiWare games are cut down versions of already existing games. Clubhouse Games Express: Card Classics includes five card games from Nintendo's DS game Clubhouse Games, but be...

Nintendo Download: DSiWare, Equilibrio & Uncharted Waters (US)

DSiWare, Equilibrio & Uncharted Waters (US)

A monster DSiWare update to kick off the new North American ‘Nintendo Download’. Worry not, Wiiware and VC fans are not completely forgotten this week either.

As you will see this week’s 'Nintendo Download' update is a bit of a beast as it includes all the DSiWare launch titles (which of course came out on Sunday!). For those thinking about...

Interview with Brian Fehdrau - Secret of Evermore

We recently got a chance to talk with the lead programmer of Secret of Evermore and found out some very interesting information regarding the development of this unique Super Nintendo RPG title.

Brian Fehdrau was the lead programmer on the Squaresoft USA team that developed the Super Nintendo rpg hit Secret of Evermore. We were recently able to...

USA VC Update: Super Punch-Out!!

It's catchup week again, as today's new VC release is Super Punch-Out!!, which was recently released in Europe.

Super Punch-Out!! once again puts you in the shoes of Little Mac (Which has finally been confirmed in today's press release - Nintendo previously never said who this boxer was!) as he fights through four increasingly difficult boxing circuits, taking on a total of 16 opponents on his..

Super Nintoaster gives you a slice of the action

I like my SNES games slightly burnt, thanks

If you thought that the Nintoaster was cool, wait till you see its big brother – the SUPER Nintoaster! Here we have a device that looks like your common breakfast-producing kitchen item but in fact plays everything from Super Mario World through to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past; truly, this is the ultimate tool for gamers who need something a..

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: USA VC Update: Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen

USA VC Update: Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen

You're in for a treat today - Another Square Enix classic will be available in the Wii Shop. Some might say it's one of their best games, but what is definitely a fact is that it's one of the rarest SNES games - Only about 25000 copies were released in the US, meaning the VC version will be much cheaper than actually finding the game.

Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen is the first game in..

ESRB Update: Super Punch-Out!! and Ogre Battle on Their Way to the US

There haven't really been too many great games released in the US recently - Aside from StarTropics II, Phantasy Star IV and possibly Kirby's Dream Land 3 it's been quite a bleak affair. Thankfully it seems like Nintendo are stepping up their game a little bit sometime soon, as two awesome games have been given the go-ahead by the ESRB.

Super Punch-Out!! is quite naturally the sequel to the..

News: USA VC Update: Kirby's Dream Land 3

USA VC Update: Kirby's Dream Land 3

Nintendo of America has released one Virtual Console game and two WiiWare games every single week for the past two months - You thought they couldn't sink any lower? Guess again, because this week it's one VC game and one WiiWare game! Much like last week, the VC game is a good one, but that doesn't really make up for anything!

Kirby's Dream Land 3 for the SNES is the final Kirby's Dream Land game..

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..

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..

USA VC Releases: Secret of Mana and Street Fighter II Genesis

It's another big week for the USA. A timeless Square classic and yet another update to Capcom's fighting series will be available later today.

Aside from Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana is one of Square's most highly regarded games. While it's not readily apparent, the game is actually a sequel to Final Fantasy Adventure on the Game Boy (Which secretly really isn't a Final Fantasy..

EU VC Releases: DoReMi Fantasy and Ys Book I & II

Can you believe it? It's already time to say goodbye to the Hanabi Festival, as this is presumably the last week with imports. But it goes out with a bang - Not only are there two more imports available, they're accompanied by two Turbografx games, one of which is spectacular.

First, the new imports: DoReMi Fantasy: Milon's DokiDoki Adventure was released in the US almost half a year ago. What an..

EU VC Releases: Super Mario RPG and Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels

Exciting times for Europe today, as it seems to be the start of the third Hanabi Festival - That means that you can once again probably expect a bunch of import games the coming weeks!

The Festival starts off with a bang, just like the first one from 2007. Finally making its debut in Europe (After 12 years!) is the fantastic Square/Nintendo co-operation for the SNES, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the..
