Phoenix Wright demo added to Japanese Wii Shop

Here's a good sign that Nintendo may continue supporting the WiiWare demo program, which, honestly, we were skeptical about. Two more demos have been added in Japan: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Aim! Light Adventure Team and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. A demo for Phoenix Wright is a great idea --...

Jurassic: The Hunted demo now on Xbox Live

As a child, we were really into dinosaurs. Jurassic Park was our favorite movie, Dinosaucers was our favorite TV show and Yummy Mummy was our favorite cereal (that's not dinosaur-related, but we didn't want to lie to make the story better).

Japanese Nintendo downloads: Trial edition

The WiiWare demo program arrives in Japan today, offering many of the same demos found in North America. Bit.Trip Beat and NyxQuest are out, and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon is in. Oddly, the Japanese site for the demo program mentions a January 31 end date, which the North American page doesn't. We...

Uncharted 2 multiplayer demo coming next week

We had a lot of fun playing in the Uncharted 2 multiplayer beta, but it was sullied somewhat by how exclusive it was. With every gunshot, we were reminded of a friend who couldn't get in on the festivities, and it just made it a little tough to enjoy. Luckily, we'll be able to fire away with a...

Don't have the whole Labor Day holiday off to play games? Why not take a tiny break from your work to play a tiny portion of a video game -- provided you're within distance of a Wii? There are some new demos up on the Nintendo Channel if you haven't bothered to download any DS demos in the last...

This Week on the Nintendo Channel: A director and his boy and his blob

This week, WayForward's Sean Velasco offers Nintendo Channel viewers a look at the delightful-looking A Boy and His Blob, describing the colorful sidescrolling adventure as "a sincere game in a cynical time." We suppose that the level of interest the game inspires could be related to your own...
