Animales de la Muerte - More Information

A few weeks ago we interviewed High Voltage Software about their upcoming WiiWare game Animals de la Muerte. Whilst it was a very informative interview, we forgot to ask one crucial question! What are the controls like on this game?

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.
