Apparently Nintendo has nothing new up their sleeve for the Wii at the end of August – odd, considering the 2nd week of the month was a holiday and we still haven't seen Mario Tennis published, which was previously announced for release this month.
In any event, Japanese DSi owners have the following two games to look forward to next Wednesday – even if neither of them strictly qualifies as "new."
G.G. Series Chō Hero Ōga 2 (200pts - Genterprise) -- Following on from the release of their uber-mini collection G.G. Series Collection+ (preview still pending - we're working on it!), Genterprise and Suzak have decided continue the series by releasing sequels to those games. When the G.G. Series will end is anyone's guess, but if they can manage to make compelling changes as was the case with G.G. Series Z・ONE 2, we're not going to complain. We've previewed every one of the series released on DSiWare thus far and this one will be no exception as the first Super Hero Ogre was a quality beat-em-up.
Check out our G.G. Series Chō Hero Ōga preview if you haven't already, and if you like what you read take heart because it's one of a handful of the original series Genterprise have decided to publish outside of Japan.
Arc Style: Zekkyō Genshinin Sam no Daibōken (800pts - Arc System Works) -- Arc System Works is continuing their shamelessly-titled Arc Style series with another import: the prehistoric platformer known to the rest of us as Prehistorik Man. We weren't terribly impressed with it, but it could be that Arc System Works have worked out the bugs and improved the performance of this prehistoric platforming port. Read our Prehistorik Man review and see if you want to take a chance!
No games on Wii and Prehistorik Man!? I'm sorry for you, Japan.
Tiny update is... tiny
Only two games this week for Japan with one of them being medicore? Ouch.
not bad ds games at least
poor japan poeplez but they do get most games a year ealier than Americans (not sure about poeple who live in Eurpoe)
I found out about the G.G game earlier, but I didn't know what it was. Well I hope we get this one too! _
What? Prehistorik Man is terrible. XD
Japan loves DSiware
It does seem to; WiiWare is pretty much dead for 3rd parties there, but they keep on doing DSiWare.
No Wii at all? Hope this won't happen in Europe (or US for that matter).
...Even Japan's download week is crappy, what's going on?! T_T
I'm actually excited for the G.G fighting game releasing in America. I wonder how good the sequel is?
I'm sorry, Japenese Wii Owners. I feel your pain.
haha, Cho Hero Oga 2 is only 200 points. Good enough.
As long as there's no point change from Japan to US, I'll get it (when it comes out, since number 1 isn't out yet)
Watch Eventually the time will come when like 20 1st party games they are secretly making comes out and make everyone crap there pants.....maybe that is just me
Hm...Japan does get a lot of games that are never released in NA or Europe though. This is still pretty unfortunate.
Remember how many games they used to get? Instant karma...
Wow. This is small.
I'm still hoping for G.G. series colection+ to come to the west but since cho hero oga 2 isn't on the collection, I'l get it on dsiware.
Nintendo is so Evil
