NintendoWare Weekly: Pinball, Gravitronix, Final Fight 2


Usually, we can't fit all of the titles available for download across Nintendo platforms into the headline, but this week's NintendoWare Weekly post is an exception. Those anxious to get their hands on some digital wares will only find three games available this week -- so in the interest of keeping this train a-chuggin' along, let's get to the details.


  • Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon (Nintendo, 1 player, 500 DSi Points): One of the lesser-known things about ancient cultures is that they were actually the first to discover pinball. Using boulders and crude bumpers made from shaved boulders, the ancient tribes of humanity often engaged in pinball. Guess what they used for quarters? Yup, more shaved boulders.
  • Gravitronix (Medaverse Studios, 1 - 8 players, 500 Wii Points): It's kinda like Thunderdome-plus-six with Gravitronix, as multiple competitors duke it out in an arena to determine who's the best Gravitronixer. (Protip: It's your friend, Carl. Trust us, don't even try playing him -- he's that good.)
Virtual Console
  • Final Fight 2 (SNES, 1 -2 players, 800 Wii Points): Haggar is back and even though it has nothing to do with the game, we're totally going to link to that image of him piledriving a shark. What? There's no way we were going to let that slide from this post! Back to the game: you beat up nondescript thugs in alleyways and other seedy backstreet locales.
