VC/WiiWare Tuesday: New first-party WiiWare and other things worth exclaiming


It's a very exciting day for game downloads in Japan! Not just because one of the Famicom's most infamously difficult games, Beat Takeshi's Takeshi no Chousenjou, is out, though that is exciting! Three new WiiWare games are available today, every one of which bears at least one exclamation point! In fact, Nippon Ichi's Let's Zenryoku Hitchhike features no fewer than nine!

Tecmo's Atsui 12 Games Furifuri Party is the Playshake prototype from TGS, made more adorable, but still based on furious shaking! Most exciting, however, is Asoberu Ehon Tobida-Suguroku! (Playable Picture Book: Suguroku Flies Out), a multiplayer board game from Nintendo itself, based on the same Monopoly-like board game as Family Pirate Party! There's a long trailer up on that demonstrates the gameplay!

Virtual Console:
  • Takeshi no Chousenjou (Famicom, 1 player, 500 Wii Points)
  • Samurai Ghost (Arcade, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points)
