Nightly News Roundup

Dragon Quest VI for DS hits store shelves

Even though the 3DS launch is just around the corner, that doesn’t mean that Nintendo DS still isn’t receiving some love. Case-in-point: Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation hits store shelves. Our faithful readers will recall that the latest entry to the series– Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Sky— was blessed with the greatest honor a game can be bestowed, an A from Nintendojo.

We couldn't make a more Homeric logo if we tried.

With more than 15 character classics and all the RPG goodness you could ever want in a title, if nothing less the wait for 3DS should feel less burdensome.

DLC Monday: Nintendo is spreading the love

What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than to completely ignore your sweetheart and play some downloadable titles? OK, so you don’t have to ignore them– in fact, one of the titles even allows up to two players, so you can curl up in front of the warm glow of a television set together and lose yourself in each other’s game playing styles.

On the WiiWare front, for a measly 500 points you can snag Pucca’s kisses game— and you thought Valentine’s Day would be lonely. Gamers control Pucca, a girl on a quest to cover her beloved ninja Garu in kisses.

For those with relationships that may not allow for such gaming– whether the points necessary to acquire the titles, or the investment of time to see a game to completion– perhaps one of the two free demos for WiiWare will fit your fancy. The first is chick chick BOOM, with five-on-five chicks duking it out. The other free demo this week is Chronos Twins DX, a title that promises platforms, puzzles, and adventure.

Nintendo DSiWare sees three new titles this week. Treasure Hunter X is for the more frugal gamer at 200 Nintendo DSi Points, where gamers assume the identy of Tyrol the treasure hunter to collect all sorts of goodies and escape dungeons. The other two titles are both for 500 Nintendo DSi Points: Oscar in Toyland 2 and Panda Craze. Oscar in Toyland 2 arms Oscar with a yo-yo to swing from platforms, and to traverse seven new worlds, while Panda Craze capitalizes on the panda sensation (as the title implies) by having players guide the panda Tik-Ling (get it?!) through 150 puzzle-platforming levels.

n-Space can’t quit the DS

As per the n-Space Facebook page, there are four– count ’em, four!– unannounced titles for Nintendo systems, with three for Nintendo 3DS and one for the little engine that could, Nintendo DS. While no further information aside from the games’ existence in development-land is given, n-Space did create the criminally underrated Geist for Gamecube as well as the handheld version of the recent GoldenEye reimagining, so your interest should be piqued.
