Test your coordination skills and rock out with Rock Nâ€™ Roll Climberâ„¢ â€“ one of a wide variety of releases this week in the Wii Shop Channel and Nintendo DSi Shop. There are also lots of animals waiting for you to nurture them in My Zoo all on WiiWare.
Coupled with all this excitement on WiiWare, the arcade classic NINJA GAIDENâ„¢ is launching on Virtual Console. As if that wasnâ€™t enough, A Little Bit ofâ€¦Nintendo Touch Golfâ„¢ will also provide endless entertainment on Nintendo DSiWare.
WiiWARE – Rock Nâ€™ Roll Climberâ„¢
(Nintendo, 800 Wii Points)
Do you have what it takes to scale the heights of rock superstardom? In Rock Nâ€™ Roll Climber, put your balance and coordination skills to the test as you attempt to conquer the world as a champion rock climber.
Use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, and even the optional Wii Balance Board, to move your hands and feet independently, as you inch yourself closer to the summit â€“ and the prize guitar that awaits.
Practise your skills on the indoor training wall, then experience the thrill of scaling a jungle hillside, a waterfall and a treacherous mountain – balancing speed and concentration to beat the clock before you fall.
WiiWARE – My Zooâ„¢
(HUDSON SOFT, 500 Wii Points)
My Zoo is a relaxing animal sim that puts you in the shoes of an animal breeder, raising animals you’d normally only dream of. All it takes is a Wii Remote for a simple, yet fulfilling connection with nature.
There are 12 animal types in total (four sold separately as add-on content â€“ coming soon). Select your favourites and nurture them to adulthood. Feeding them, petting them, and cleaning up after them is a great way to form a lasting bond.
Each animal’s personality will change depending on how you take care of them. Watch them get spoiled, turn into over-eaters, and more as they grow on a daily basis. Some animals will even have a baby on occasion, and once it’s born, you’ve got another mouth to feed.
Game time passes much more quickly than real time, and the different animal types are active at various hours – some during the day and some at night. Sometimes it’s fun to just kick back and watch what they do.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to create your own personal zoo.
Virtual Console Arcade – NINJA GAIDENâ„¢
(Tecmo, 800 Wii Points)
Originally released in arcades as “Shadow Warriors” in Europe, this fast-paced brawler is hailed as a cult classic – and now you can enjoy it in your own home.
You take on the role of a ninja, dispatched to the American gangland city of “Jungle” to take down an evil assassination syndicate. But they’re not going down without a fight. You’ll need all of your ninja skills, such as the Flying Neck Throw and the Hang Kick, to defeat them. This version allows you to select your starting amount of lives, along with the difficulty level of the game, for an improved, custom experience.
Ninja warriors meet Western gangs in this action classic. Pick it up and hit the streets.
