What’s new this week for WiiWare, DSiWare and Virtual Console in Australia? Let’s find out from Vooks.
More fresh meat for the Nintendo stores this week, some quality on each platform including Virtual Console. She's not dead yet.
DSiWare has the biggest additions this week including a brand new RPG from Gameloft. Legends of Exidia has you battling an army of demons called the Morgost and fight of the invasion of them from the fair land of Olinor. The game gives off a retro vibe and for 800 points points to being of decent length. The other DSiWare is two more Electroplankton titles; Luminarrow and Sun-Animalcule. Luminarrow is actually a good one and you'll be able to get something nice sounding out of it but Sun-Animalcule is one of those 'random' ones that's only good for quick blast. Get Luminarrow if you must. Both of them are 200 points.
WiiWare has a new on-rails shooter from Intelligent Systems, the talent behind Fire Emblem and the Paper Mario titles. 530 Eco Shooter might have a terrible name but it has a few different gameplay mechanics to keep it fresh. It's also Zapper compatible. The game's length though is a little short and there is little reason to go back to it unless you're a leaderboard junkie.
And lastly this week there is a Virtual Console game! It's Street Fighter Alpha 2 from the Super Nintendo and like all SNES games it's 800 points.
WiiWare 530 Eco Shooter (Nintendo) – 1000 Points
DSiWare Legends of Exidia (Gameloft) – 800 Points Electroplankton: Luminarrow (Nintendo) – 200 Points Electroplankton: Sun-Animalcule (Nintendo) – 200 Points
Virtual Console Street Fighter Alpha 2 (SNES, Capcom) – 800 Points
