[News] [Retro] [Wii]

You may have noticed that the title for this weekly has changed, and with good reason.  This week Wii Ware launches in North America, with six incredible titles.  Check out the lauch titles below.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life As A King
1 Player - Rated E - 1500 Points - Square Enix

According to legend, a deserted town now serves as the lifeless reminder of a once powerful kingdom. The young son of an exiled king reaches this land after a long journey, finding only an abandoned castle – and a magic crystal. Though tarnished by years of neglect, the crystal has maintained its luminous glow and bestows upon the boy the power of architek, the ability to manifest memories into reality. With the help of loyal servants and audacious adventurers, the new king dutifully prepares to rebuild his people’s homeland in this new realm.


1 Player - Rated E - 1000 Points - Frontier

Built with Frontier’s in-house 3D game-engine technology LostWinds puts “the power of the wind in the palm of your hand” as you wield the awesome powers of Enril the wind spirit - from raging tornados to the gentlest breeze – to guide and protect Toku, a young boy who is the only one who can help you release the curse placed upon the world of Mistralis by evil Balasar. Mistralis is a stunningly presented, magical land full of wonder and intrigue that bursts to life with your every action and exploration. The game’s novel, playful control mechanism lets you use Enril’s elemental powers to help Toku in your quest to overcome Balasar – powering his jumps and glides through Mistralis’ different regions, buffeting and smashing enemies, and solving puzzles.


Defend Your Castle
1-4 Players - Rated E - 500 Points - XGen Studios

The Barbarian hordes have amassed their forces once again to challenge your domain. Will you and your court rise to the challenge, or stand aside as the invaders raze your Castle to the ground?


1-4 Players - Rated E - 700 Points - Nnooo

The single and multi-player game will give gamers the chance to burst their way through waves of bubbles - grabbing power-ups, multipliers, chains and aiming for worldwide high-scores.  Pop is designed to be enjoyed by all ages, either in single player or with up to three friends and allows people to steal points from opponents and use the controller to pump up the bubbles for bigger explosions. It is based around a simple concept which anyone can pick and play with layers of skill involved. Core gamers and those new to the Wii, or games in general, will all find it enjoyable.


V.I.P. Casino
