Last week, Nintendo announced that the 3DS, which could cost upward of $250, would receive a price and date on September 29. In today's Nintendo news, the Mario house unleashed six new games to its download destinations, spanning genres from hunting to puzzle-solving.
Tracking down WiiWare today is Deer Captor (500 Wii points, or $5) from Aksys Games. This hunting game lets players stealthily pursue and kill deer, hares, kites, and other various wildlife creatures. The title features two modes: Instant and Mission. The former tasks players with "capturing" as many animas as possible within a given amount of time, and the latter puts gamers into a huntsman's boots testing players with completing a series of objectives.
Also arriving on WiiWare today is Fantasy Slots: Adventure Slots and Games (700 Wii points, or $7). From Big John Games, this gambling title lets players spin an assortment of slot machines. Money earned from the luck machines can be spent on an array of items, and with enough fake cash, gamers can earn a VIP suite, which can be customized with artwork, pool tables, trophies, and furniture.
Switching to DSiWare, Nintendo added four new titles for gamers on the go. BlayzBloo: Super Melee Action Battle Royale (500 Wii points, or $5) is an item-based brawler, which pits pugilistic characters Ragna, Rachel, Jin, Noel, and Taokak against each other in a battle. In addition to a guided experience, the title features a Free Play mode, where players can battle all they wish without any limitations.
Another game hitting DSiWare this week is Hints Hunter (500 DSi points, or $5) from Circle Entertainment. The puzzler presents gamers with hints, including "time of day, game functions like clicking or dragging, or the principle of opening or closing."
Additionally, Digital Leisure's Match Up! (200 DSi points, or $2) hit DSiWare today. This "explosive" concentration puzzle game has players matching cards, colors, and shapes before the clock runs out.
The final title gracing DSiWare this week is Ubisoft's Petz Dogz Family (800 Wii points, or $8). Like Ubisoft's other small pet collection and appreciation games, Petz Dogz Family has players collecting dogs, training them, treating them well, and discovering their personalities.
