NintendoWare Weekly: Pucca's Kisses

Nintendo celebrates Valentine's Day with a licensed WiiWare game about some Korean cartoon character. It sounds a lot less random when you find out that Pucca's Kisses Game is about a young girl hoping to kiss a boy (who happens to be a ninja). Sadly, the two WiiWare demos don't quite fit the V-day theme, unless you consider blowing up baby chickens or splitting your consciousness across two time periods romantic. And we hope, for several reasons, that you don't.

DSiWare features a game about a guy searching for treasure to impress a girl, which is a suitably grandiose romantic gesture for the day. Also, pandas!%Gallery-116590%
