Take off with a classic flight sim, then master some Mario mischief with this week's downloadable titles!
The following new releases are now available in the Wii Shop Channel:
New, original games offering something for everyone!
ARKANOID Plus! is an updated version of the original arcade blockbuster. Players must destroy coloured blocks by guiding an Energy Ball around the screen using a spaceship called a VAUS. The game features a host of new modes and settings which radically alter the gameplay experience.
BIT.TRIP CORE adds up to an exciting action/rhythm game that’s best played while zoning out on the tunes and letting the visuals swallow you whole. The experience is inspired by games from the 80s, only with a modern twist. The gameplay is entirely new to the series, leaving the single-axis controls of BIT.TRIP BEAT behind in favour of the ability to control two axes.
Welcome to Pilotwings Flight Club, where your career can really soar! Produced by the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto, this Super Nintendo classic wowed audiences by putting a fun new spin on flight simulation.
The following new Nintendo DSiWare release is now available:
Mario vs. Donkey Kong™: Minis March Again!
The re-opening of Mario’s theme park, Super Mini Mario World, was going so well... until Donkey Kong burst in and kidnapped the hapless Pauline once again! So it’s up to you and the Mini Marios – tiny mechanical Mario toys – to rescue Pauline from that crazed ape’s clutches.
Pop your way through 16 waves of bubbles in Adventure, Normal or Advanced. Test yourself against the clock in a 1, 2 or 5 minute run and take on the new Bonus Round mode where each bonus round can be played in 3, 5 or 10 rounds of increasing difficulty! Or just chill out in the relaxing Chill mode with no score or time pressures to worry about.
