I’ll get these download posts back up to speed…one day…
Enough about me and laziness and more about you and downloads! This week there is no Virtual Console update, but of course there are plenty of WiiWare and DSiWare titles to choose from.
On WiiWare you can pick up My Aquarium 2 (500 points) and Enjoy your massage! (500 points). Fun stuff. On DSiWare you can find TURN: The Lost Artifact (800 points), Rhythm Core Alpha (500 points), Absolute Chess (200 points), and Did It Myself ABC123 (200 points).

I haven’t been getting to these lately. Nintendo Download! It is time for some downloading of content for your Nintendo platforms. Titles like Toribash (1,000 points) and Balloon Pop Festival (800 points) are available on Wii this week. Unfortunately, this week is lacking a Virtual Console update.
On DSi though, players can pick up Primrose (200 points), Pop Island – Paperfield (200 points), Music On: Retro Keyboard (200 points), 24/7 Solitaire (500 points), and 4 Travelers – Play French (800 points).

Nintendo almost always releases two versions of Pokemon simultaneously. Aside from a handful of minor differences, the games are almost identical. Pokemon Black and White will be no different, but it sounds like something special might be in store.
The Japanese Pokemon website listed the typical different pokemon and encounter rate style changes, but also said “There is another big version difference as well, which we will reveal later!” What could that difference be? Only Nintendo and Gamefreak knows.
The box arts were also revealed, which you can check out after the jump. While the boxs are quite fancy in themselves, they did suggest that the game will have DSi specific features. The product number included “TWL” which indicates a DSi enhanced title. Normal DS games have “NTR” instead. So it sounds like DSi owners might get a little extra treat in the title.
Also, after the jump, you can find some “new” Pokemon Black and White footage, but its pretty much everything we have seen before. Walking left, Pokemon one-shoting each other, etc.

The DSiWare arena fighter, BlazBlue Battle X Battle is coming to North America under the name BlayzeBloo: Super Melee Brawlers.
The game, while still a fighter, is drastically different from the complex 2D fighter known by fans. Chibi style BlazBlue characters battle it out in an arena with simple controls and includes a handful of modes including capture the flag, last man standing, and a noodle collecting mode.
No set release window was given, but you can probably expect it sometime in the near future.
DSiWare doesn’t exactly have the same quality and quantity as other downloadable services right now, but there are still a good handful of worthwhile titles. If you have a DSi, there is a good chance you may have a handful of DSiWare titles already. But if you want to upgrade to a DSiXL, you may have to leave those purchases behind.
A Nintendo representative was asked about the transfer of DSiWare titles from the original DSi to the DSi XL. “We’re looking into that specific topic, but we don’t have anything to announce at this time.”
Pretty lame. Hopefully the whole thing works out, especially when we get to the Nintendo 3DS where a large amount of people will be upgrading their systems.
Are you ready for some MANLINESS!? Muscle March (500 points) is available now on WiiWare! It is so manly that no other game could fit in this week as Muscle March is the only WiiWare release this week.
The Virtual Console continues to bring in new content for Europe with Milon’s Secret Castle (600 points) and Castlevania: Rondo of Blood (900 points), which is also a very manly game.
DSi owners get the Photo Dojo (200 points) fighting game where players puts themselves in the fight using the DSi Camera. DSi owners can also pick up Libera Wing (800 points), Flips: The Enchanted Woods (500 points), Flashlight (200 points), and Car Jack Streets (800 points).

Nintendo DSi XL is hitting Europe March 5th. The price point of the system has yet to be announced. The trailer is just your pretty standard video showing off the features and comparing the system to other DS models.
You can check the video out after the jump.

Nintendo will be offering two special DSi Bundles for Black Friday that come with pre-installed DSiWare Software. The first bundle includes a Metallic Blue DSi that will come with Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again, WarioWare Snapped, Dr. Mario Express, Mario Calculator, and the Mario Clock. The other bundle includes a white DSi with Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters, Brain Age Express: Sudoku, Brain Age Express: Math, Club House Games Express: Card Classics, and Photo Clock.
These bundles seem to be a limited edition, so after Black Friday they may be difficult to find. If you have to have them be sure to pick it up on Black Friday.
While we had a post before on the new enlarged DSi, we didn’t have anything following it up (fault on my part from busy last few days). Since then Nintendo has officially announced the new Nintendo DS. This new Nintendo DS is called DSi LL in Japan and DSi XL in North America and Europe. The new DSi was created in order to address the issue of people having a difficult time reading font and is targeted to those who use their Nintendo DSi for the internet or for a music player.
Nintendo DSi XL will be coming out Q1 2010 in North America and Europe. DSi XL will retail for more then the current DSi price. Japan will be getting it November 21st of this year. You can check out all the details, pictures and comparisons of the systems after the jump.
