GameLoft Brings More to WiiWare

GameLoft, who you might know as the company bringing their mobile game Block Breaker Deluxe to WiiWare, is bringing three more games to the service. Two of these are also mobile phone ports, but one of them is a new game.

The PEGI has rated Midnight Bowling, which we assume will be the first title to see release in Europe. It will be a slightly upgraded port of the original mobile game where you..

New name for Dr. Mario WiiWare

Since we first heard that Dr. Mario was coming to WiiWare there have been a few different western names for the game circulating on the net such as Dr. Mario's Virus Buster and Dr. Mario & Bacteria Extermination, both likely direct translations of the Japanese title, Dr. Mario & Saikin Bokumetsu.

Having checked out the new Nintendo Channel we can now confirm that the puzzler will actually..

News: Toki Tori - New Screens

Toki Tori - New Screens

Dutch developer Two Tribes today released some new screens for Toki Tori, their upcoming WiiWare game. As you might know, it appears to be a remake of their original Game Boy Color game of the same name.

The game is a platformer/puzzler hybrid, combining quick reactions with smart thinking. It was originally released at the end of the GBC's life (In 2001) and was met with pretty positive reviews..

News: Ubisoft Brings Protothea to WiiWare

Ubisoft Brings Protothea to WiiWare

In a completely random announcement today, Ubisoft has revealed they are bringing the 2005 PC game Protöthea to WiiWare. The game is a shooter, but doesn't really stand out too much.

The WiiWare release will include extra features and things to do, and apparently will be released on WiiWare's launch day for 1000 Wii Points. Ubisoft's James Regan told IGN: Ubisoft is excited to bring Protöthea..

WiiWare: Pop Pricing Still Unconfirmed

Nnooo's Nic Watt has admitted that he still isn’t 100% sure how much to charge for his company’s promising looking WiiWare title Pop.

Speaking in an interview this week, Watt said: For a new company like ourselves, pricing is a really tough issue particularly on something like a downloadable service where there are games at a variety of prices. Disc-based games are somewhat easier as they all..

New WiiWare Game Allows You To Massacre Undead Animals in Style

Developer High Voltage is clearly putting all its weight behind Nintendo’s new WiiWare service with Animales de la Muerte (Animals of the Dead) being the company’s second announcement for the new service in the space of a week, following the rather neat looking Gyrostarr.

Animales de la Muerte takes place in a Mexican Zoo. When the animals begin...

News: New WiiWare Game: Gyrostarr

New WiiWare Game: Gyrostarr

About a week ago, the relatively unknown developer High Voltage Software revealed a Wii game called The Conduit, which is looking surprisingly good for such a small company. That's not all though, they're also working on a WiiWare game. High Voltage exclusively told IGN they're making Gyrostarr.

Gyrostarr seems to feature four ships competing to defeat enemies and collect enough energy to open a..

News: Two New WiiWare Games - Home Sweet Home and ActionLoop Twist

Two New WiiWare Games - Home Sweet Home and ActionLoop Twist

Canadian developer Big Blue Bubble recently announced that it's developing a WiiWare game called Home Sweet Home. This game looks to be some sort of mix of The Sims and Habbo Hotel, which I'm sure most of you know. A date and price are still unknown, but there are some screens you can look at on the Home Sweet Home WiiWare game profile page.

The full press release is as follows: Home Sweet Home is..

News: WiiWare: Toki Tori Returns

WiiWare: Toki Tori Returns

You might've already seen it on the WiiWare game page a while ago - Toki Tori was a game released on the Game Boy Color at the very end of its life - 2001, to be exact. The game looked quite amazing for the little system, almost on par with the new Game Boy Advance, and featured some stunningly addictive gameplay. It also had a pretty addictive soundtrack.

Dutch developer Two Tribes has now officially announced that Toki Tori is indeed coming to WiiWare. Whether it's a remake, sequel or combination of both is still up in the air (Although some of the levels seen so far were in the original), but the game is looking quite great and t...

Wayforward Working On Shantae Sequel For WiiWare

Wayforward Technologies – the company responsible for the stunning Contra 4 on the Nintendo DS – has recently confirmed that it is working on an WiiWare update of the classic Gameboy Color platformer Shantae.

Hudson announces WiiWare lineup, Alien Crush sequel

Hudson has dated a few of their upcoming WiiWare games for Japan. Along with the dates, they've announced two new titles. There's also (finally) clarification on the Bomberman WiiWare game and Bomberman retail game. I'll go down the list in the same order Hudson did:

First off, Joy Sound is no longer a WiiWare game. It will be released as a retail game because it includes some accessoires which..

News: Block Breaker Deluxe Coming to WiiWare

Block Breaker Deluxe Coming to WiiWare

Gameloft isn’t really a company that you’d associate with top-rank videogaming, thanks to the fact that it has only really dabbled in the notoriously inconsistent world of mobile phone software. That said, it’s one of the better companies currently working in that sphere of interactive entertainment.

Looking to expand into the domestic market, Gameloft has announced that it will be releasing..

News: LostWinds: One to Watch on WiiWare?

LostWinds: One to Watch on WiiWare?

With WiiWare now officially launched in Japan, it’s difficult not to feel a slight sense of disappointment when looking at the opening salvo of software. Sure, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles looks lovely and the Dr Mario update is addictive as ever, but a few too many of the titles appear to be either over-priced shovelware or ‘too Japanese’ to appeal to a Western audience.

Fear not, because the US launch is looking a hell of a lot more enticing, largely thanks to titles like LostWinds, which is shaping up to be the kind of game that pu...

Bomberman Wii - First screens

In the newest edition of the Japanese magazine Famitsu, Hudson has unveiled the first screens of "Bomberman Wii".

While the magazine doesn't actually specifically say if it's a Wii game or WiiWare game, we're assuming it's the latter, as a Bomberman WiiWare game was announced a while ago. When you look at it's features this seems to be the...

SquareEnix’s Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King is fast becoming one of the most desirable WiiWare titles and looking at these latest screens it’s not difficult to see why. The game is, quite frankly, gorgeous.
