Sorry for the VERY late update today, my morning and most of the day disappeared into various time sinks. Here's our weekly roundup of new titles available to anyone with a console, a credit card and a little bit of bandwidth...
WiiWare -- Following a recent pattern, we see one new title and one free demo. BINGO PARTY Deluxe is a whole bunch of Bingo games, in digital form, for those who just can't get enough random filling of cards. There's also a free demo of Aksys' Games popular retro-style BIT.TRIP RUNNER.
Wii Virtual Console -- An unusual new title arrives -- Jaleco's RIVAL TURF! for the Super NES, one of many entries in the not-quite-Final Fight sweepstakes of the early 1990s.
DSiWare -- Three new titles arrive for the DSi, as Nintendo reportedly prepares to open the 3DS downloadable store in late May. A new episodic RPG series continues with the Rogue-like, randomly-generated dungeon crawl Anonymous Notes Chapter 2 - From the Abyss. Ikibago is a match-three puzzle game that dresses the basic idea up in a pirate theme. Picture Perfect Pocket Stylist lets you give daring new hairstyles to cartoon characters and/or photos of your friends.
XBox Live Arcade -- Three new games last week. NIN2-JUMP is an action platformer with an interesting shadow-puppet visual style, produced by CAVE Company, a well-regarded Japanese developer better known for bullet-hell shooters. Outland is a Prince of Persia-style action platformer with plenty of swordplay and a striking visual style. Trouble Witches Neo! is a side-scrolling HD arcade shooter from SNK Playmore.
PS3 on PSN -- Oddly, nothing new was released on this platform this past week.
PSOne Classics -- Nothing new here this week.
