NintendoWare Weekly: Bejeweled 2, Telegraph Crosswords

Andrew Yoon , @scxzor
This is the final NintendoWare Weekly update before Nintendo's E3 conference tomorrow. What kind of exciting changes will tomorrow bring? Does it even matter, now that Bejeweled 2 is on the Wii?

  • Bejeweled 2 (PopCap, 1 Player, 1000 Wii Points)
    If you ever want to see your Wii console again, you'll make sure that your casual-gaming family do not ever, ever find out about the launch of Bejeweled 2 on WiiWare. They haven't seen this news post, have they?
  • Arcade Sports (Icon, 2 Players, 800 Wii Points)
    Just in case your system didn't come with a multiplayer bowling game, this new WiiWare offering provides four sports to play: air hockey, bowling, pool and snooker.
  • Yard Sale Hidden Treasures: Sunnyville (Konami, 1 Player, 500 Wii Points)
    As the last vampire slayer of Sunnyville (probably), you must search local yard sales on a mission to find hidden treasures and save the world.

Virtual Console

  • Shadow of the Ninja (NES, Natsume, 2 Players, 500 Wii Points)
    If Mega Man were a ninja, it would look a lot like this. Wait, that sounds awesome!
  • A Kappa's Trail (Nintendo, 1 Player, 500 DSi Points)
    Controlled entirely by stylus, this adventure game has you drawing the path for a Japanese river spirit. Navigate Kappa through the treacherous Kappa Cove, dodging enemies, "the Devil Hand" and the worst enemy of all: dysentery.
  • Telegraph Crosswords (Sanuk Games, 1 Player, 500 DSi Points)
    Should be self-explanatory. But we wonder, why is it rated T? Featuring "drug references" and "suggestive themes," this may be the most hardcore crossword game ever.
  • Flips: Silent But Deadly (Electronic Arts, 1 Player, 500 DSi Points)
    The latest addition to EA's interactive book series has three kids uncovering a secret about Mr. Watts, their science teacher. A silent secret. A deadly one.
  • Music on: Electronic Keyboard (Abylight, 1 Player, 200 DSi Points)
    This virtual six-octave keyboard features eight user-definable chords, automatic accompaniment, an integrated sequencer, metronome, recording and replay option and "16 instruments."
  • 16 Shot! SHOOTING WATCH (Hudson, 1 Player, 200 DSi Points)
    How fast can you hit a button? YOU CAN FIND OUT with Hudson's new DSiWare app. Features both a virtual A and B button!
