NintendoWare Weekly: Zaxxon, Military Madness


The original arcade version of Zaxxon is available on Virtual Console this week! Trust us: this is very exciting if you're old. However, as we like to do when this sort of thing pops up, we're offering this public service announcement: if you have either the PS2 Sega Genesis Collection disc or Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection, you already have this game!

Check out all the WiiWare, Virtual Console, and DSiWare offerings after the break.


  • Military Madness: Nectaris (Hudson, 1-4 players, 1,000 Wii Points): Strategic hex-based battles for up to four, playable online.
Virtual Console
  • Zaxxon (Arcade, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): This shooter uses a really unusual isometric perspective, which gives it a distinctive look, and also ensures that you'll crash into stuff all the time.
  • Gangstar 2: Kings of L.A. (Gameloft, 1 player, 500 DSi Points): Like Grand Theft Auto, but not enough to buy Grand Theft Auto? This is for you.
  • AlphaBounce (Mad Monkey Studios, 1 player, 500 DSi Points): Somebody got the idea that Arkanoid needed more RPG-like depth, and as a result we have AlphaBounce, which features the ability to upgrade your ship with items collected in the game.
  • 7 Card Games (, 1 player, 500 DSi Points): Texas Hold'em, Omaha Hold'em, Blackjack, Freecell, Hearts, Klondike Deal 1 and Klondike Deal 3. Seven card games.
  • AiRace (QubicGames, 1-6 players, 800 DSi Points): Finally, an airplane racing game!
WarioWare D.I.Y. DLC
