NintendoWare Weekly: Mega Man X


We didn't have to wait long for Mega Man X on Virtual Console. It was announced for Japan just last month, and it's on the Virtual Console in North America today! Of course, if you count all the time since the original 1993 release, including the years since the Wii first came out, it's a longer wait.

WiiWare offers a Bit.Trip Core demo today, and on the total opposite end of the "crazy hardcore" spectrum, My Little Baby. DSiWare has a very cute submarine game, a piano teaching tool, and the third DodoGo puzzle game.

  • My Little Baby (dtp young entertainment, 1 player, 600 Wii Points): Your very own fake electronic baby to feed, play with, bathe, change ...
  • Demo: Bit.Trip Core (Aksys Games, 1-2 players, 0 Wii Points): The second game in the Bit.Trip series uses the D-pad to hit "beats" that come toward the middle of the screen in time with the music. We can't really explain it, but this is a demo so you can just go try it.
Virtual Console
  • Mega Man X (SNES, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): The first SNES Mega Man game is set in the "future" of the series, with a new Mega Man, new enemies, and a new wall-grab move.
  • GO Series Captain Sub (Gamebridge, 1 player, 200 DSi Points): Control a cute little submarine, and grab undersea treasure with your mechanical arm.
  • DodoGo! Robo (Neko Entertainment, 1 player, 200 DSi Points): Alter environments by digging, sawing, etc., to create safe paths for Robo-Eggs.
  • Music On: Learning Piano Volume 2 (Abylight, 1 player, 200 DSi Points): Turns out a single 200-point DSiWare app didn't quite finish teaching you piano.
