The LoadDown - 05/02/2011

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 AbyssIkibago 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.
