The LoadDown - 06/23/2011

Things remain fairly quiet on the downloadable front recently, with little happening on the HD platforms.  At least Nintendo has some news for us. 

(And while I don't cover PC games here, as there's just way too much going on to keep up with, as an adventure game fan I must note that Telltale Games' final episodic chapter of Back to the Future: The Game is out today!)

WiiWare -- One new game, The Mystery of Whiterock Castle, a casual hidden-object adventure.

Wii Virtual Console -- Nothing new here this week.

DSiWare --  For both the DSi and the 3DS, several new games this week.  Pro Jumper! Guilty Gear Tangent!? is a very nicely animated cartoon platformer starring Chimaki from the popular fighting game series Guilty GearStratego: Next Edition is a portable version of the classic strategy board game.  And Delbo is a puzzle game that plays like a stiffer, cruder version of Bust-A-Move/Puzzle Bobble.

3DS eStore -- In addition to the dual-platform DSi/3DS games above, the 3DS gets the Game Boy sports contest Tennis in its original 2-D format.

XBox Live Arcade -- Nothing new here this week, perhaps to build anticipation for Summer of Arcade beginning July 20th.

PS3 on PSN -- Another quiet week here; Sony seems to be going with a bi-weekly release schedule lately.

PSOne Classics -- Nothing new here this week either.
