This week starts an initiative to bring classic LucasArts titles to the Virtual Console for the next month. Today, Super Star Wars for the SNES is available, however Nintendo also promises its sequels, Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, in the coming weeks. Considering these are among the top Star Wars experiences out there, you can bet we're pretty pumped. It feels kind of like when you bullseye a womp rat in your T-16!

DSiWare

  • Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters (Nintendo, 1 player, 800 DSi Points): Nintendo's split up the Brain Age experience, combining old and new puzzles in downloadable chunks for DSi. Arts & Letters focuses on just that, with a series of grammatical and music-based challenges to conquer. We'd be excited, but for only a couple more dollars, one could simply get the full game.
WiiWare
  • NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits (Over the Top Games, 1 - 2 players, 1,000 Wii Points): Once known as Icarian Spirits, NyxQuest is an action platformer with a Greek twist. If you squint hard enough while playing, it's almost like it's a sequel to Kid Icarus!
  • Rock 'N Roll Climber (Nintendo, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): Not to be confused with Rock 'N Roll Racing, this is the game about climbing walls of rocks Nintendo revealed back at GDC09. Using the Balance Board, Nunchuk and Wiimote in unison, players climb tall walls of rock and, upon reaching the top, rip out the guitar and get their rock on. Sounds kinda cool, but we're already in love with one guitarist, Nintendo!
Virtual Console
  • Super Star Wars (LucasArts, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): Dude, you single-handedly take down a Sandcrawler full of Jawas. What's not to like?
