Hudson's My Aquarium For WiiWare

We received a rather interesting press release today about the upcoming fish tank simulation for WiiWare called My Aquarium by Hudson. It seems the original name of Blue Oasis for North America has now been dropped so it’s got the same name as Europe thankfully.

Soon our North American friends will be able to stuff their faces on a virtual feast as Major League Eating: The Game is up on WiiWare this coming Monday.

At first we were a bit dismissive of this game, but it actually seems to be shaping up to look like it could be a half decent game. Heck it’s even got online play and leaderboards. It certainly appears to be in a different league from offenders..

Maboshi: The Three Shape Arcade - WiiWare OFLC rated

A strange new OFLC rating popped up today - Maboshi: The Three Shape Arcade was no title we had ever heard of before!

Mega Man 9 Is Coming To WiiWare In Retro Style

Time to rejoice! As you might remember, a while ago we mentioned that Mega Man 9 had received an OFLC rating.
