This week on the Nintendo download services, we've got yet another new Virtual Console game, a robot with an afro and egg defense! And the DSi has a few interesting little games, too, before we forget about that.
This week's games are as follows:
On DSiWare this week, we have Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp (Digital Leisure, 1 player, 800 DSi Points), Cosmo Fighters (Abylight, 1-4 players, 500 DSi Points), Paul's Monster Adventure (Agetec, 1 player, 500 DSi Points) and Just Sing! Christmas Songs Vol 2. (Engine Software, 1 player, 200 DSi Points). Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp is the sequel to the first game in the series, this time featuring you rescuing Princess Daphne while using a time machine. Cosmo Fighters features fighting with a focus on combo chains. Paul's Monster Adventure tasks you with bringing food to boss monsters, while at the same time defeating other monsters you encounter. Apparently, the boss monsters do not get upset about this. Finally, Just Sing! Christmas Songs Vol. 2 is a karaoke game with plenty of holiday songs, like the first game in the series that came out last week.
WiiWare has two titles this week: Frobot (Fugazo, 1-4 players, 1,000 Wii Points) and its demo, and Inkub (Cosmonaut Games, 1 player, 500 Wii Points). Frobot pts you in the shoes (or tracks?) of an afro-wearing Robot out to save the world from The Man. Meanwhile, Inkub is a game featuring you, a buch of artillery and bacteria who want to attack incubators full of eggs. Don't let them.
And the Virtual Console's got a new game: Mario Party 2 (N64, 1-4 players, 1,000 Wii Points). The second installment in the party game series sees a bunch of new mini-games and new boards. Perfect for playing with friends to see who gets to take out the trash.
Mario Party 2 debuted on the Japanese Virtual Console in November. It, along with Frobot,its demo and Inkub, are available for download off the Wii Shop Channel, while Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp, Cosmo Fighters, Paul's Monster Adventure and Just Sing! Christmas Songs Vol. 2 are available for download off the DSi Shop Channel.
Check back next week for the latest round of digital releases for the Wii and DSi. Until then, happy gaming!
