Nintendo Update: June 23, 2011

Nintendo Update: June 23, 2011

Looks like Nintendo is back to lean downloadable line-ups; I guess they decided everyone’s busy playing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.  If you’re not one of those people, you can see the full list of releases for this week below.


The Mystery of Whiterock Castle (500 points) – Experience a thrilling adventure at Whiterock Castle as you search for a missing princess. Find all the hidden objects in 10 meticulously detailed settings as you get to know the various inhabitants and rooms of the castle. You can journey through a medieval fantasy world in a single-player game, compete against other players or help each other out in co-operative game play. Make haste and explore the King’s vast castle with its gloomy dungeons and secret nooks and crannies. Every adventure will be unlike any other because the hidden objects will always be concealed in different places. The hunt for the highest score has begun.



*Note: all DSiWare games are also available in the eShop. 100 points = $1.

Stratego: Next Edition (500 points) – In Stratego: Next Edition you must demonstrate your strategic skills on the battlefield. Stratego’ s unique game play pits you against opponents who will do everything in their power to outsmart you. Rise to the challenge and confront them in battle. Emerge victorious and you’ll become the greatest general of all time. You can also play Stratego: Next Edition wirelessly against a friend who also owns a Nintendo DSi™ or Nintendo 3DS™ system and has a copy of the game. Do you have the strength to endure these challenges and be the first to capture the flag?



Delbo (200 points) – Delbo is a shooting-based puzzle game. Players must shoot an orb from the lower side of the screen to hit falling orbs from the upper side of the screen. When the color of the falling orbs matches the orb players shoot, they will be connected and extinguished. This game is easy to play but hard to master.

Pro Jumper! Guilty Gear Tangent!? (500 points) – Chimaki from Guilty Gear 2 stars in this quirky platformer for the Nintendo DSiWare service. Chimaki is a tiny creature with an insatiable lust for life. Something of a recluse, he ventures out of his hermitage on occasion to seek the truth. What goes on behind that implacable face is a mystery – perhaps even to Chimaki himself. Make use of Chimaki’s run, jump and towel attacks to collect apples, successfully bypass the legions bent on his destruction and reach the hot spring located at the end of each stage. Chimaki is a lover, not a fighter. As such, a mere two hits will cause him to expire.



3DS eShop

Tennis ($2.99) – For fans of the classics and of the sport, this is one to add to your collection. As seen in the 1989 Game Boy™ release, this game allows for realistic match-play action. Choose your opponent’s skill level. Against them, you can practice your power serves, skillfully placed shots, lofty lobs, and killer cross courts. You may even recognize a friendly face on the court–Mario™! He will serve as umpire and call the close ones. Get ready to game, set, and match in Tennis!
