Unfortunately due to exciting vacations times, I’ve missed out on DLC updates last few days. But Europeans, here is your Nintendo Download. But before we start talking this week, I want to point out that Final Fantasy II (800 points) hit the Virtual Console last week. That’s the Japanese IV by the way.
I couldn’t find the pricing details for this week, so I’m using some guess work and the NA point costs for a couple of titles that I thought were worth looking into.
Anyways, this week there is some pretty nice stuff! Yet another fine Virtual Console update brings Europeans Mario Tennis (1,000 points) for the Nintendo 64. And on WiiWare you can find the excellent Blaster Master Overdrive (1,000 points), and Ant Nation.
DSiWare doesn’t have anything I particularly recognize, but you can find Face Pilot: Fly With Your Nintendo DSi Camera!, Pocket Pack Strategy Games, Combat of Giants: Mutant Insects – Revenge, and Telegraph Sudoku and Kakuro.
New, original games offering something for everyone!
BLASTER MASTER OVERDRIVE
BLASTER MASTER OVERDRIVE is an action-adventure game that takes place on an Earth infected by an aggressive, polymorphic virus that turns poor defenceless animals into flesh eating, haemoglobin swilling terrors. Things look grim but you still have S.O.P.H.I.A., a shape shifting, gas guzzling, projectile spewing weapon of destruction on four wheels. The world just might have a chance this time.
The beloved childhood pastime of lazy Sundays spent with a magnifying glass and an ant farm finally arrives on WiiWare in its most mischievous form! You are in control of a small colony of Super Ants, which you must train through a devilishly fun toolset. Zap, torch, and manipulate your ants to make them tough enough to survive a variety of increasingly difficult challenges!
