NintendoWare Weekly: Jelly Car 2, Ghosts 'n Goblins, Exed Exes


We're treated to a surprise today from Capcom, something we didn't think we'd see in 2011: two Virtual Console releases on the same day! Bask in it, because even a single Virtual Console release is a rare event. This time, it's two of Capcom's announced arcade releases, Ghosts 'n Goblins and the shmup Exed Exes.

Additionally, WiiWare is host to Disney's Jelly Car 2, a build-it-yourself racing game with realistic physics and weird, jiggly cars.

  • JellyCar 2 (Disney Interactive, 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points): This is the sequel to a popular iPhone game about racing in, yes, squishy cars.
  • Soccer Bashi (Icon Games Entertainment, 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points): A Breakout-style game presented as "soccer of the future." In the future, all those unpredictable players will be replaced by good old colorful blocks.
  • Demo: Art of Balance (Shin'en, 1-2 players, 0 Wii Points): A puzzle game about building stacks of objects and keeping them balanced. It's a bit hard to explain, but luckily this is a demo and you can just see for yourself.
Virtual Console
  • Ghosts 'n Goblins (Arcade, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points): Experience true pain as you attempt to guide Arthur through the monster world in the arcade original.
  • Exed Exes (Arcade, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points): Vintage vertically scrolling shooter from Capcom.
  • Petz Catz Family (Ubisoft, 1 player, 800 DSi Points): Care for, feed and train a whole family of cats. Since this is a video game and not real life, it's presumably possible to train a cat.
  • Surfacer+ (Lexis Numerique, 1 player, 500 DSi Points): Use the stylus to put flowers on the screen and increase their size, in order to fill screen area. Despite the flower theme, it's not all peaceful: You must avoid enemies while flower-arranging.
  • EJ Puzzles: Hooked (Electron Jump, 1 player, 500 DSi Points): Use a fish scanner and marker buoys to figure out which fish you can catch at a certain time, then manage the retrieval of all those fish. It's a fishing-themed puzzle game!
