Nintendo has issued the latest releases on the WiiWare service for owners of Wii that are keen to get their hands on the latest new creations, downloading them and hopefully enjoying them!
This week sees the eagerly anticipated retro-fest that is Mega Man 9 from Capcom, as well as the long-in-the-offing twist ‘n’ paint from Bplus:
Mega Man™ 9 (CAPCOM, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone-Mild Cartoon Violence, 1,000 Wii Points)
Mega Man fans, the wait is over! The classic Blue Bomber that debuted in 1987 is back with the ninth installment in the classic series. It’s a new adventure for Mega Man done in an 8-bit style-graphics, music and gameplay are all like you remember them.
Will Capcom’s attempt at a brand new retro-styled game prove to be a major success?
PLÄTTCHEN twist ‘n’ paint (Bplus, 1-8 players, Rated E for Everyone, 1,000 Wii Points)
PLÄTTCHEN twist ‘n’ paint is a crazy, challenging puzzle shooter that delivers more than 100 hours of fun, supporting up to eight players simultaneously. Guard the birth of ZeLeLi and free them from the menace of the evil black Shadow Plättchen.
