Producer Peter Dassenko, who's handling the upcoming Alien Crush Returns for Wiiware, spoke with theBBPS.com about the title and Hudson as a whole. As pumped as we are for Alien Crush Returns, it's not the only interesting thing about the interview. Dassenko pretty much confirms that we will see u...

Star Soldier R's short-session, competitive gameplay is perfect for a tournament. Luckily for expert SSR players, Hudson agrees. They've just announced the Star Soldier R "Shoot Now, Win Prizes Later" Tournament & Sweepstakes. All you have to do is sign up on the website, and then be as awesom...

Wow, we've been happy with WiiWare. You all have been happy with the titles, correct? Well, regardless of how you would rate the service so far, we have a tough question to ask. Do you think the steady flow of new titles will remain constant going forward? Would you expect at least one new WiiWare...

The R stands for Revolution, and it's doubly appropriate in this case. We're using it both to refer to Star Soldier R and to allude to our temporary branching-out into WiiWare for this week's column. We figure that it's a classic-style game even if it's not a real classic. Plus, it's a downloadabl...

With the WiiWare update yesterday (not to be confused with the European and Aussie update), we decided that we needed to get our review on with Hudson's Star Soldier R. Of course, you all know that we fell in love with the title upon first seeing it and anxiously awaited its release. Now that it's...

Right on time, Nintendo has pulled the appropriate levers, flicked the necessary switches, and sent a whole world of WiiWare goodness down the pipes and into Europe and Australia. Here's what greeted this blogger on his local servers just now: Dr. Mario & Germ Buster -- 1,000 Wii Points Fi...

Did you think that WiiWare was done after one week? No such luck, nephew, the WiiWare is getting weekly updates, just like its older brother, the Virtual Console. Here's what's arriving this week: Star Soldier R (Hudson Entertainment, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): Think of it as Star Soldier: Champions...

Well, it looks like we were wrong. Here we were, expecting Nintendo to just dish out some WiiWare games and call it a day. Instead, the Big N has gone and surprised us by offering not only the WiiWare downloads we were expecting, but also one Virtual Console game. No point in wasting time, so let'...

Konami and Hudson both spilled the beans on two major WiiWare titles, Critter Round-Up and Star Soldier R, informing us that they will be available for download on Monday. As you all know, we're dying to get our hands on Hudson's shmup and were disappointed to not see it at the WiiWare launch. So...

Hudson must have been reading our diary, because Star Soldier R is coming to the WiiWare service in the United States. The news arrives via a press release that has just made its way into the inbox of our overlords at Joystiq and we couldn't be happier. We love to shoot stuff (in video games) and...

Hudson certainly hasn't been shy about showing its affections for WiiWare, with the company doing all but making a mix tape for the Wii's upcoming digital download service. Now, after confirming plans to bring Tetris and Bomberman to WiiWare, Hudson has announced plans to release yet another down...

If you're anything like us, then the upcoming release of WiiWare is going to mean a smaller bank account total and less time on your hands. After all, there are several quality titles that will be available through the service, one of which is Hudson's Star Soldier R. We don't know if it's the shmu...

The news that Star Soldier R would abandon a traditional progressive level structure in favor of time attack-style gameplay (available in two- and five-minute pockets) wasn't warmly greeted by everyone. Game|Life's Chris Kohler criticized the title for representing poor value, while some of you so...

Thanks to the good folks at NintendoWorldReport, we've got some videos for you from some of the launch titles for Wii Ware in Japan. With it hitting Japanese Wii consoles earlier today, we imagine Japanese gamers are doing what they usual do: enjoy being alive and laughing at the rest of the world....

While most of us were sleeping -- like a bunch of chumps -- Nintendo launched its WiiWare service in Japan early this morning. As expected, the WiiWare servers are taking a beating from thousands of gamers hoping to try out the new downloadable releases, but Siliconera's Spencer Yip and Wired's C...

If there's one genre we'll never tire of, it's the shoot-em-up. Or, shmup for those of you who prefer your labels to contain less syllables. It's a very accessible genre of games and one chock full of the kind of action that never bores us: shooting everything in sight. And that's why we're psyche...

Though its potential can't be denied, Nintendo's Wii Ware channel, an upcoming download service for new Wii games, didn't impress us much with the seemingly low-budget titles announced for it so far. Nintendo amended that worriment today at its Tokyo conference by revealing a lineup of impressive...
