Well, this is a surprise. The Virtual Console breathes again – if only for this week – with a new game. WiiWare’s only got one game thing week, too, but it’s a port of a great PC indie game, while DSiWare has a few new titles as usual:
On DSiWare this week, we have Rytmik (CINEMAX, 1 player, 800 DSi Points), G.G. Series Ninja Karakuri Den (Genterprise, 1 player, 200 DSi Points), My Farm (BiP Media, 1-2 players, 200 DSi Points), and Absolute Reversi (Tasuke, 1-2 players, 200 DSi Points). Rytmik lets you build music out of samples. G.G. Series Ninja Karakuri Den puts you in the shoes of a ninja who must jump from platform to platform in a booby trap-filled world. My Farm is a farm sim, while Absolute Reversi is a Reversi game for the DSi.
WiiWare has one title this week: And Yet It Moves (Broken Rules, 1 player, 1,000 Wii Points). PC gamers should recognize the title, but for those of you who’ve never heard of it, it’s an adventure-platforming title in which the player can rotate the world to help move around it. In this case, you’ll use the Wii remote to do the rotating.
The Virtual Console has one new title: Ufouria: The Saga (NES, 1 player, 600 Wii Points). Developed by Sunsoft, the game’s an old-school side-scrolling adventure title that feels a bit like Blaster Master or the original Metroid, but with cuter characters.
Ufouria: The Saga came out last month on the PAL Virtual Console. It, along with And Yet It Moves, is available for download off the Wii Shop Channel, while Rytmik, G.G. Series Ninja Karakuri Den, My Farm, and Absolute Reversi 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!
