We usually write off Nintendo Week as nothing more than the usual PR flim-flam, but this week's episode on the Nintendo Channel is one to watch. The segments on Muscle March, Super Mario RPG and Little King's Story are nice, but there's an important lesson to be learned here: New Super Mario Bros....

Today is probably the best day for DSiWare since the system launched. Four games arrive on the service, two of which we can honestly call "anticipated," and one of which we probably would have anticipated had we known it was coming. Capcom's cool DSiWare Dark Void prequel arrives just in time to hel...

Muscle March, Namco's barely-released arcade game turned WiiWare oddity, may actually leave Japan, according to a rating found on the German USK ratings board. We didn't think Bandai Namco would ever make this delightful mistake, but if it's being planned for release in Germany, it's bound for the r...

Under normal circumstances, by far the biggest news on the Japanese Wii Shop this week would be Final Fantasy. Square Enix actually delivered the game on time to Virtual Console, and didn't even take the opportunity to jack the price up. Even if it is ancient, 500 points for a classic RPG is a great...

They should have sent a poet.Oh good -- we hadn't "pulled a Samuel Taylor Coleridge" when we wrote this morning's post about Namco's new WiiWare game, Muscle March. It wasn't a dream and it's even weirder in action than we could have imagined. Namco: please make a US release of this game happen, '...

We figured you wouldn't be needing your mind over the weekend so we've decided to blow it. Or, rather, Namco Bandai will with its new WiiWare game Muscle March. C'mon -- just look at that screenshot. Muscle-bound humans, flexing robots, random zoo animals on the HUD ... wait, there has to be a catc...
