NintendoWare Weekly: MDK2, Mighty Milky Way

A classic game is newly downloadable on Wii today, but it's not a Virtual Console title. IdeaSpark Labs' remake of BioWare's PC/Dreamcast/PS2 action adventure title MDK2 is up on WiiWare, allowing you to see that cool ribbon parachute thing again.

DSiWare has WayForward's Mighty Milky Way, an action puzzle game that depends on the creation of a path of tiny planets for the character Luna. There's also the gothic-esque timed platformer Tower of Deus and Whack-a-Friend. The latter makes sense as soon as you learn that the DSi camera is involved.

  • Whack-a-Friend (Agetec, 1 player, 200 DSi Points): Take pictures with the DSi camera, and then turn that picture into the basis of a whack-a-mole game.
