NintendoWare Weekly: Chrono Trigger, Gabrielle's Ghostly Groove

It's an oldie, but a goodie -- actually, you know what? It's a bestie. Square Enix's beloved SNES RPG Chrono Trigger arrives on the Wii Virtual Console for 800 Points, giving us yet another platform upon which to totally hang with Robo, Frog, Lucca, the prehistoric one, the princess, and that one wizard guy. Oh, Chrono Trigger. It has obviously been far too long.

Other games added today include Big Bass Arcade on DSiWare, in which bass -- preferably big bass -- are pulled from bodies of water using sticks and twine, and Natsume's gothic rhythm title, Gabrielle's Ghostly Groove: Monster Mix for WiiWare. Check out the full list of new releases below!

Virtual Console
  • Chrono Trigger (Square Enix, 1 Player, 800 Wii Points): You know, like Chrono Trigger? Time travel? Apocalypse and stuff? The End of Time? You probably know what you're dealing with, here.
  • Gabrielle's Ghostly Groove: Monster Mix (Natsume, 1-4 Players, 500 Wii Points): A gothic, cartoony rhythm game in the fashion of Ouendan, formerly released on Nintendo DS. It is adorable.
  • Lead the Meerkats Demo (Lapland Studio, 1 Player, 0 Wii Points, Full Version for 1,000 Wii Points): It's got the meerkat-leading action you crave, only in a smaller, free package. Do you have what it takes to tend to your meerkat flock? We're going to assume the answer is "no."
Nintendo DSiWare
  • Big Bass Arcade (Big John Games,1 Player, 500 DSi Points): Those fish aren't going to catch themselves, you know. Though, if they did, it sure would make life a whole lot easier -- and it would probably reduce the market price of salmon.
  • Word Searcher 3 (Digital Leisure Inc., 1 Player, 500 DSi Points): One hundred Word Search puzzles for five dollars? It's hard to argue with that kind of value, surely.
  • Hellokids - Vol. 1: Coloring and Painting (BiP Media, 1 Player, 200 DSi Points): This is a coloring book app which includes a "color containment" feature, preventing you from drawing outside of the lines of each illustration. That's going to make it awfully hard for us to really explore our artistic feelings, Hellokids.
