Virtual Wares: Introducing DSiWare


It's a big week for Nintendo fans. First of all, the first 6 downloadable goodies on the US DSi Shop are available, and we've got 1 new WiiWare and Virtual Console title to consider. So let's not waste any time and get right down to the nitty-gritty. What will you be downloading this week?


DSi Shop

  • Nintendo DSi Browser (Nintendo, 1 player, 0 Nintendo DSi Points): It's the Nintendo DSi browser. We hear it's way better than the existing browser for DS Lites and Phats.
  • Bird & Beans (Nintendo, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 200 Nintendo DSi Points): Players take on the role of Pyoro, a bird with a really long tongue and an insatiable appetite, who must use said tongue to snatch up falling beans for points.
  • Master of Illusion Express: Funny Face (Nintendo, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 200 Nintendo DSi Points): Magicians receive a little aid with this title. Downloading this allows you to perform the Vanishing Card trick from the DS Master of Illusion game. It also allows you to do the Vanishing Money trick.
  • Art Style: AQUIA (Nintendo, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Nintendo DSi Points): The latest in Nintendo's line of Bit Generations-turned-downloadable titles, Art Style: AQUIA is a puzzle game where you must match similarly colored blocks on horizontal and vertical grids. The goal is to get a diver to the bottom of the ocean's floor, with each matching trio of blocks allowing him to go that much further.
  • WarioWare: Snapped! (Nintendo, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone – Comic Mischief, 500 Nintendo DSi Points): The newest WarioWare game focuses on the DSi's camera, allowing you to partake in 4 different adventures composed of several minigames.
  • Brain Age Express: Math (Nintendo, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 800 Nintendo DSi Points): More Brain Age for your Nintendo DSi, with this version hoping to improve your mathematical skills. Featuring a mixture of new and old exercises, you'll be able to play through modes such as Change Maker, Triangle Math, Sum Totaled and Multi Tasker.

  • EQUILIBRIO (DK-GAMES, 1-4 players, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): This title is a lot like Kororinpa: you move a ball around a map, trying to gather as many points as you can, until you find the exit. It features four game modes and support for up to four players via local splitscreen.
Virtual Console
  • Uncharted Waters: New Horizons (SNES, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): Transport yourself back to the time of dysentary and scurvy, as you live through the early 16th century on the hunt for new lands. Once you've chosen from one of the six different available characters, you're free to roam the world and discover.
