Download 2010: Ones To Watch

Take a look at 10 WiiWare and DSiWare games that are likely to be on your must-download list in 2010.

From platforming to strategy, from long-running franchises to all-new properties, there's a lot of downloadable goodness to go around -- and this list only scratches the surface of what's to come. The moral of the story: start saving up those Nintendo Points!


1. And Yet It Moves - And Yet It Moves turns platforming on it's head - and on it's side. As you navigate unique paper-collage-style levels, you'll be able to rotate the game world to help you make jumps and overcome obstacles.

2. Super Meat Boy - Quirky, cool, and kinda gross, Super Meat Boy is guaranteed to push your jumping and wall-climbing skills to the limits. The developer's are looking to include more than 300 levels, including a retro-themed bonus chapter.

3. Bonk: Brink of Extinction - Hudson's big-headed caveman, Bonk, is back! In addition to the usual jumping and headbutting, you'll be able to use all-new elemental powers to help you save prehistory from an impending meteor collision.

4. Liight - You'll manipulate colored lights to hit like-hued targets in this promising brain-bender. The game will feature more than 100 stages and a nonstop survival mode, plus you'll be able to make your own puzzles.

5. Mega Man 10 - When it comes to 2-D action, Mega Man always delivers. New bosses like Solar Man, Blade Man, and Chill Man will keep you on your toes, but a new Easy mode promises to make the game more accesible than the last installment.

6. Military Madness: Nectaris - The original Military Madness on the TurboGrafx16 set the standard for console strategy games. Experience it for yourself in this enhanced remake which includes new hero units in multiplayer mode.

7. NightSky - The silhouette aesthetic of NightSky certainly helps the game stand out from the crowd. Its premise - rolling a ball throught obstacle-laden environments using limited special powers - is also very compelling.

8. Phoenix Write: Ace Attorney - The Phoenix Write: Ace Attorney games were excellent on DS. Now you'll be able to experience the quirky legal dramas all over again on WiiWare. The first game could be out by the time you read this.


1. Reflection - In Reflection, your character has been magically split in two, and you must control both parts - one on the top screen, the other on the bottom screen. It's a different and clever type of platformer.

2. Shantae: Risky's Revenge - We're not sure which is more exciting: the fact that Shantae is returning after so many years, the fact that this game looks absolutely amazing, or the fact that this is only the first game in a three-part saga.

Sega brings vintage hedgehog action to the DS with Sonic Classic Collection.

Sonic the Hedgehog has done a lot of crazy stuff recently. He's wielded a sword, he's turned into a werebeast, and he's competed against a certain plumber in both the summer and winter Olympics. But this spring he'll be returning to his roots on the Nintendo DS with Sonic Classic Collection.

Featuring the Blue Blur's original adventures from the Sega Genesis, Sonic Classic Collection contains some of the best (and speediest) platformers of the 16-bit era: the groundbreaking Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (which introduced Tails, Sonic's little buddy), Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (featuring the debut of Sonic's rival, Knuckles the Echidna), and Sonic & Knuckles (in which both Sonic and Knuckles are playable characters).

Gamers will also be able to play as Knuckles in Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 using Sonic & Knuckles's vaunted "lock-on technology." To top it off, the compilation will contain unlockable artwork and an in-depth video history of Sonic, making it a must-have for any die-hard hedgehog aficionado.

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story
 e3 - (eviljay)

Getting to know Bowser from the inside out was never so much fun.

Even if Square-Enix hasn't made a Mario RPG since Legend of the Seven Stars on the Super Nintendo, the legacy has successfully lived on thanks to some very quirky and innovative takes on the iconic Nintendo franchise. Alpha Dream's Mario and Luigi RPG series is one that has been going strong since its 2003 debut on the Game Boy Advance, all due to a combination of simple to learn, hard to master gameplay and lots of colorful humor. Bowser's Inside Story is the third game in the series, second on the DS, and this time around the adventure goes very deep into the very innards of one of gaming's most lovable villains.

LEGO: Rock Band

We already know you dig Rock Band, but you might be thinking: Why LEGOs? Here's why: it's for kids. Or, more accurately, for the whole family. LEGO: Rock Band takes the familiar gameplay of the large-scale Rock Band and Rock Band 2, and throws in that unique LEGO magic.

You already know how to play the game -- match the notes coming down the note highway, try to hit them on time and on-point -- so let me discuss that LEGO difference )

As for the hands-on part of the game: I played "The Final Countdown" by Europe on guitar, and it played exactly like Rock Band, although I did find myself a bit distracted by the LEGO antics of the the onscreen avatars.

According to the MTV representative on hand at E3, LEGO Rock Band's family-friendly song list won't be able to be augmented with DLC, and the game will probably feature a mixture of master tracks and covers. It comes out this Fall for the PS3, PS2, Nintendo DS, and Xbox 360.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (pronounced "Kingdom Hearts Three-Five-Eight Days over Two") is an action role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix for the Nintendo DS with assistance from h.a.n.d. It is a new installment in the best-selling Kingdom Hearts series. The story is an interquel taking place between Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts II. The game centers on the daily life of the main character Roxas, exploring the time from his creation during the first game, Kingdom Hearts, and leading directly into Kingdom Hearts II. It features 3D graphics, and single and multiplayer modes of play. The game was announced at the 2007 Tokyo Game Show to be released in Japan; a North American release was later confirmed as well as a European Autumn, 2009 release. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days will have a special edition of the Nintendo DSi when it launches in Japan. This game is already released in Japan. The game's official US release was announced at E3 2009, to be September 29th 2009, along with the first English trailer.

RPGs Heading to Wii and Ds
 e3 - (sevastra)
08:04pm 02/06/2009
While it isn’t necessarily the kind of earth-shaking news you'd expect/want from an E3 press conference, it’s certainly good to know that Nintendo plans to bring several new RPGs to Wii and DS by the end of the year and beyond.

For the DS, players can expect Kingdom Hearts (Sept. 29), Mario and Luigi RPG 3: Bowser’s Inside Story (Fall 2009), and Golden Sun (2010). Square Enix’s Final Fantasy: Crystal Bearers, which has been out for a couple years in Japan, will be hitting the Wii sometime by the end of 2009.

Many of these titles will be available on display on the show floor, so stay tuned for hands-on impressions over the next few days.

New WarioWare
 e3 - (sevastra)
08:02pm 02/06/2009
At the company's E3 press event today, Nintendo revealed a new WarioWare game. WarioWare DIY is a touch screen and camera mini-game collection for the DS.

The game's big innovation: WarioWare DIY allows players to create their own mini-games for the system, and then share them using the DSi's online capabilities. WarioWare DIY allows customized characters, environments, actions and goals to be added to mini-games.

I'm terrified of the games you will create.. but, if you have any fantastic ideas, leave them in our comment section below.
