Nintendo of Europe have today announced the latest additions to their WiiWare and Nintendo DSiWare services, bringing with it a wealth of new content.
The full list is as follows:
* Viral Survival, NIS America – 500 Wii Points
Viral Survival is an “escape” action game where you control a special DNA unit and dodge through enemy virus attacks. If you save a friendly DNA unit they will connect to you, creating a tail. The more you save, the higher point total you will accumulate.
There are also four other game modes, including one where you can shoot the enemy down and compete for number of kills and a time attack mode to save 128 DNA units in the shortest time possible. For all five game modes your score can be ranked online. Try your best to become number one in the world!
* Cosy Fire, dtp entertainment – 500 Wii Points
We all long for a cosy open fire, particularly during the cold season, but not everyone is able to snuggle in front of a warming blaze. Your new WiiWare open fire will fill every room with a magical and cosy atmosphere.
Select from a variety of logs and use the Wii Remote to stack them up. Now, light the match and your home will soon be snug and glowing. There are six fireplaces available: fire alone, campfire and rustic, classic, elegant and Zen fireplaces.
Poke and tend the fire to keep it burning. Place more logs on the fire to keep the fire burning, just like a real fire. Would you like to just sit back and relax? No problem: new logs will be placed on the fire in Butler mode and the logs never burn down in Non-stop mode!
What could be nicer than the comforting crackle and animation of a real fire during the coldest time of the year?
* Rage of the Gladiator, Ghostfire Games – Free
* Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, WayForward – 1200 Nintendo DSi Points
This is it – the sequel to the critically acclaimed Shantae. Fans asked and WayForward answered with a powder keg of high octane, hair-whipping, hip shaking action available only on Nintendo DSiWare.
Shantae sets the bar even higher with thousands of frames of animation, huge multi-sprite bosses and a quest so big it’s bursting at the seams. Guide “half-genie” Shantae through haunted wastes, burning deserts, enchanted forests, dripping caverns and deadly labyrinths. Discover magical attacks, brew zombie coffee, save golden babies and master the art of belly-dancing to transform Shantae into more powerful creatures.
Use your powers to foil the lady pirate Risky Boots and save Sequin Land from certain doom. With its infectious characters, flirtatious humor and deliciously outlandish action, Shantae: Risky’s Revenge offers up all the hair- whipping, belly-dancing action you can handle.
* 101 Dolphin Pets, Teyon – 500 Nintendo DSi Points
Choose from over 101 baby dolphins or simply adopt them all! Discover their personalities as you feed, clean and care for your new pets. Bring out your pet’s talents by training your dolphin in a variety of fun and wacky activities.
Enter your dolphin into pet shows and earn money to buy exciting upgrades including toys, food, clothes, accessories and more. The more tricks you teach and the more games you play, the more fun you’ll have. You’ll never be bored with so many new best friends to pamper, play with and love.
* Model Academy, Tivola – 500 Nintendo DSi Points
You play to advance from being the girl next door to a popular top model. Your agent Nick will keep presenting you with new challenges, which you have to overcome. You’ll be travelling around the world, getting to know many influential people.
You don’t just have to prove your taste in choosing your outfits, but also your skill on the catwalk and your speed during photoshoots. Regular fitness training and beauty treatments will let you shine when facing your clients.
* Hip Hop King: Rytmik Edition, Cinemax – 800 Nintendo DSi Points
Now’s your chance to turn your musical dreams into reality. Hip Hop King – Rytmik Edition gives you the tools to create melodies and rhythms and to compose whole songs.
There are more than 170 carefully selected sound samples of drums, other percussion instruments, bass, melodic instruments and gramophone scratches. These enable you to quickly and easily create the basic building block for the game, an audio clip, onto which you can build other sounds and create musical masterpieces.
You’ll have the choice of four instruments and can adjust their volume, reverse and shuffle the sounds and play with effects such as echo. If you are struggling for inspiration there is a collection of 11 pre-made compositions which you can use to help compose your own pieces.
