NintendoWare Weekly: Divergent Shift, Space Trek


We're calling it: the Virtual Console is dead. There have been two games this summer. If there are any more, consider them stragglers. Nintendo, if you'd like to prove us wrong by stepping up the Virtual Console release schedule from "almost never" to "occasionally," please feel free.

There are still DSiWare and WiiWare games, though, including Divergent Shift (formerly Reflection), the long-awaited puzzle platformer about navigating two mirrored versions of the same character across different terrains simultaneously.


  • Space Trek (Calaris, 1 player, 700 Wii Points): A third-person vehicle-based shooter in which you pilot a space jet through a hostile alien planet.
  • A Monsteca Corral: Monsters vs. Robots (Onteca, 1-4 players, 500 Wii Points): Control a herd of "Stompies" to avoid capture by enemy robots.
  • Divergent Shift (Konami, 1 player, 800 DSi Points): Control one character on two screens in this puzzle platformer (formerly Reflection), avoiding dangers on both simultaneously.
  • 3D Mahjong (Cosmigo, 1 player, 500 DSi Points): 50 different mahjong layouts, as well as "Memory" and "Matching" minigames for those of us who have no idea how to play mahjong, but somehow end up with this game.
  • myNotebook: Carbon (Nnooo, 1 player, 500 DSi Points): The latest release of Nnooo's notebook app includes 24 "unlockable squared and lined paper styles," five ink colors, and page exporting functionality.
  • Just Sing! National Anthems (Engine Software, 1 player, 200 DSi Points): It's a karaoke game, in which you sing the national anthems of Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Japan, and the US. Okay.
