There's not a single multidirectional shooter in sight this week, which is a rare occurrence. In fact, it is slim pickings all round, with just a single game coming out across Xbox Live Arcade, WiiWare, Virtual Console, DSiWare, and the PlayStation Network Store; though perhaps the latter doesn't count because it's still down.
Xbox Live Arcade is the lucky recipient of the only update this week, with the release of Dungeons and Dragons: Daggerdale. Given that Daggerdale is based on one of the most popular fantasy franchises of all time, it's not too surprising to find that it's a hack-and-slash adventure. Like the pen-and-paper game it spawned from, there are four different classes to choose among, and it can be played solo or cooperatively via split-screen.
