Aussie Nintendo Store: Look, It's Another Final Fantasy Game

Nintendo has flipped the switch and let loose another batch of games to download this week. Again we're subjected to missing games but at least we're getting the good ones on the bundle.

The sole Virtual Console title this week is a little known game called Final Fantasy. Originally on the NES, this is the game they're calling an RPG and judging by the title sounds like it's the last one in the series. 600 points to get your finality fun on.

WiiWare gets well, nothing... so moving on to the DSiWare with three new titles. First up is a shoot-em-up called Metal Torrent from Nintendo and Arika; yes the guys who made the Endless Ocean games. This 500 point game is pretty short but it's all about the high scores, and thusly includes internet leaderboards. Metal Torrent must be pushing the old DSi a little too much as at some points in the game it'll crawl to a halt; there are literally thousands of things flying around on the screen at once.

Second of the DSiWare trio is Rytmik for 800 points. It's a music generation tool much like the KORG DS title so if you haven't got any music ability you can probably skip this one.

Last but not least is Flips: Silent But Deadly. Sadly it's not a flatulence inspired game but another interactive book for the younger DSi owner.

Some updates regarding the DSiWare stores and WiiWare outside of today's new games for you all. Sabarasa's 'Save the Turtles', while originally missing from the Australian store, has finally arrived and will set you back 500 points. In news on the Cave Story front, it's all bad for Australians as developer Nicalis says that, while a European release is on track, an Australian one is merely 'a possibility'. Speak up if you want it!

    Would this Final Fantasy be the NTSC one or the PAL conversion. I'm assuming its the latter... if so its a no thank you from me. I hate the slowdown on the game play and the music.

      Every other NES game on the VC has been the PAL version for better or worst, so I doubt this would be any different.

    That's actually pretty damn funny.
