On the 3DS side, there's a lot of content hitting the eShop this week, including Kid Icarus: Uprising. There's even a new DSiWare title on tap. Be sure to see all of this week's updates by visiting your favorite digital storefront at noon eastern.
Toki Tori - Two Tribes, $1.99 (sale price)
Wii Sports Club: Tennis and Bowling - Nintendo, free hub download, each sport costs $1.99 (24 hour trial) or $9.99 (lifetime pass)
Why don't we ever get the far superior Wario's Woods on SNES? I used to play the hell out of that game. I think I could possibly put a few bucks on that game.
Still, if you like puzzle games, Wario's Woods is a great game. It's pretty creative in that you don't switch blocks or anything, but rather control Toad as he runs around and moves things around. Kind of funny to think about basically being in a Tetris board with things falling at you! I'd love to see a more modern spin on that. I'm suprised they don't have Kinect Tetris or something where you have to catch blocks as they fall from the sky.
Golf is gonna have the gamepad-on-floor mechanic, which probably needs a lot of testing to make it work well.
Hmm, I'd bet that the gamepad will just be a superficial representation of your lie and club facing. I don't think that the sensor recognition is quick enough to use it for the actual swing. And MotionPlus already works very well for that, anyway. Although I think that Iwata DID say that you could whiff the swing. So we'll see, I guess.
@Mr_Mustache I was thinking about this too... in theory $10 a game isn't bad, but let's say for the sake of argument they release every game in Wii Sports Resort... then it's like over $100 just to get all of that online? Hmm.
Yea, makes me wonder if there's going to be some kind of package deal down the line too. I feel like I don't have enough information to make an educated purchase right now. But I'll probably get bowling for $10 just to play online.
