NintendoWare Weekly: Inchworm Animation, Airport Mania

Today's DSiWare and WiiWare lineup definitely looks like the work of a company that isn't paying the strictest attention to its current generation of consoles. As Nintendo turns its eye toward the future, the downloadable Wii and DS lineup is looking pretty sparse. The good news is that Flat...

NintendoWare Weekly: Demos, Faceez: Monsters

With the 3DS now out in stores -- and unable to support DSiWare until May -- we expected Nintendo's download service to become a total ghost town today. It's definitely a slower day for the service than most Mondays, with just two new games (one of which is Faceez: Monsters, allowing us to relive...

NintendoWare Weekly: Faxanadu, Cozy Fire

Wow, it's a Virtual Console game -- and a good one at that. Faxanadu for NES was developed by Falcom, creators of the Ys and Dragon Slayer series (to which Faxanadu is tangentially connected), and published in America by Nintendo. Oddly enough, however, the now-defunct Hudson Entertainment is listed...

NintendoWare Weekly: Shantae: Risky's Revenge, Fatal Fury 3

Originally meant to be episodic, the long-awaited sequel Shantae: Risky's Revenge arrives on DSiWare today. At 1,200 DSi Points ($12), it's the most expensive game on the service -- though its price doesn't come close to comparing to eBay prices for the original (just the manual is $50). If nothing...

Japanese Nintendo downloads: NyxQuest, PooYoos

So, some games are available this week on the Virtual Console, WiiWare, and DSiWare in Japan. Last year's NyxQuest, the Greek-themed platformer, is the star among the Wii releases. Otherwise, the Wii Shop a pretty unassuming lineup, unless you're three years old or love both war history and numbers....

European Nintendo downloads: Blaster Master, Zombie Panic in Wonderland, Game & Watch

This week's releases largely belong to DSiWare, at least in terms of volume. Three Game & Watch simulators are joined by a downloadable version of The Price is Right, the surprise hit Faceez and Alphabounce, a Breakout clone with ... RPG elements? But in terms of quality, the Wii has the...

NintendoWare Weekly: Mr. Driller, Game and Watch, Fishie Fishie

This week marks the one-year anniversary of the DSiWare service launch, and Nintendo is observing the occasion by putting interesting content on the service! Every week should be some kind of milestone. And speaking of annual observances, there's a Neo Geo game on Virtual Console. ...

NintendoWare Weekly: Bit.Trip Void, Super Mario Kart, A Boy and His Blob

Nintendo celebrates Thanksgiving by dropping a massive feast onto the table of every Wii and DSi owner in North America. The next Bit.Trip game is now available on WiiWare, DSiWare receives another heaping serving of Electroplankton, and Virtual Console welcomes ... Super Mario Kart. We guess when...

European Nintendo Downloads: Learning with the Golden Axe

We're going to be in the minority on this one, but that's okay: for us, by far the most exciting new addition to Europe's Wii Shop this week is the arcade version of Golden Axe. More of you may be happy to see Super Star Wars, however. Or, if you're teensy, Learning with the PooYoos. DSiWare offers...

Get some Pooyoos all over your Wii

What is it with WiiWare games and deceptive titles? Despite the somewhat lurid name given to its titular creatures, Learning with the Pooyoos is anything but. We have no idea why these critters are called Pooyoos, especially considering they appear to be just cutesy-fied animals. As the title...
