NINTENDO DOWNLOAD: NEW DOWNLOADABLE GAMES WILL BLOW YOUR MIND, NOT YOUR BUDGET

May 17, 2010

Just because Nintendo offers a rich selection of downloadable games doesn’t mean you have to be rich to enjoy them. Available for just 500 Nintendo DSi Points™ apiece, Looksley’s Line Up™ and Frogger Returns for the Nintendo DSiWare™ service offer immersive virtual world fun and arcade-inspired thrills, respectively, at a budget-friendly price. Check out the complete lineup of incredible titles for the hand-held Nintendo DSi™ system, and while you’re at it, be sure to download the hilarious new Photo Dojo™ game, available for zero Nintendo DSi Points through June 10 (the game will require 200 Nintendo DSi Points for download as of June 11).

BIT.TRIP RUNNER marks a fresh installment in one of the WiiWare™ service’s most acclaimed game series, while the Super NES™ classic Kirby Super Star™ arrives on the Virtual Console™ service, each available to download for only 800 Wii Points™. Also, fans of Band Hero for the Wii™ system can be among the first to play the new Band Hero 1 Track Pack, featuring music from Miley Cyrus (“7 Things”), Selena Gomez (“Falling Down”) and Demi Lovato (“Here We Go Again”). This pack will be exclusive to Wii for one week starting May 18, 2010.

This week also brings new additions to the “Big Name Games” section of the WarioWare: D.I.Y.series, featuring downloadable microgames from some of the industry’s most talented figures. Gary and Allison, hosts of the Nintendo Channel’s “Nintendo Week” program, have each created an original microgame to add to the series’ wild mix. New “Big Name Games” will be added every Monday through July 26, all available to download for zero Nintendo DSi Points to anyone with broadband Internet access and a copy of either WarioWare: D.I.Y. for the Nintendo DS™ family of systems or WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase software for the WiiWare service. Visit the Nintendo Channel on your Wii™ system today to learn more about these games and to get a look at Gary and Allison’s imaginative creations.

Virtual Console

Kirby Super Star
Original platform:
Super NES
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 800 Wii Points
Description: That awful King Dedede is at it again – he’s stolen all the food in Dream Land. It’s up to Kirby™ to get it back and ultimately save Pop Star from being overtaken. In what may be the most diverse adventure yet for the round, pink hero, Kirby journeys through six main games and two minigames, finishing with the ultimate showdown in The Arena. Each game offers its own story and style of platforming action, as well as unique environments and an assortment of enemies. Swallowing an enemy allows Kirby to copy the abilities of that enemy, granting him the power to perform special attacks and giving him a new hat to don. In a strategic twist, Kirby can now give up an acquired ability and use it to turn an enemy into a helper. The helper will follow Kirby around and automatically fight as his ally or offer a second player the chance to join in the game by controlling it. There’s never a dull moment as Kirby dashes, flies and swallows enemies in his battle against King Dedede, Dyna Blade and Meta Knight.

Nintendo adds new titles to the Nintendo DSi Shop and the Wii Shop Channel at 9 a.m. Pacific time on Mondays.
