Nintendo Store Update: Bit. Trip Flux hits WiiWare

Gaijin Games' final core installment lands on download space next to two demos; DSiWare adds My Little Restaurant, Magnetic Joe, and Monster Buster Club.

A new month starts tomorrow, but today marks the end of the distinctive WiiWare rhythm series Bit. Trip.

Leading the pack this week is Gaijin Games' Bit. Trip Flux (800 Wii points, or $8). The final entry in the Bit. Trip franchise, Flux has players reprising their role as protagonist Commandervideo in his final adventure. Gamers can play either solo or with a friend and enjoy new power-ups like the full-screen paddle, new beat types, and a new Meta mode.

Commandervideo's final adventure hits WiiWare today.

Also out now on WiiWare are two new demos, the first of which is for Zallag's deity game Gods vs. Humans. The other demo also now available is for Pong Toss Pro: Frat Party Games.

Switching to DSiWare, Nintendo added three new games to the virtual marketplace today, the first of which is My Little Restaurant (500 DSi points, or $5). The game casts players as a restaurant manager who must seat guests, take orders, deliver food, and make money. The game sports five distinct restaurant types: American Diner, Japanese Bar, Ancient Palace, Picnic Fun, and Space Lunchroom, as well as a duo of minigames: Burgers for the Chef and Sushi Master Challenge.

Also out now on DSiWare is Subdued Software's Magnetic Joe (500 DSi points, or $5). The title has players controlling Joe, a petite magnetic sphere. As Joe, players will travel through 100 levels all set about with enemies and obstacles. Each maze is full of magnets that pull Joe in every which way, so players must wisely use Joe's magnetic power to get to safety.

The last DSiWare title out now is Monster Buster Club (800 DSi points, or $8). From Nordcurrent, the game has players adventuring alongside Cathy, Danny, Sam and Chris through the title based on the animated television show Monster Buster Club. Players will battle aliens, race cars, solve puzzles, and travel to outer space in Monster Buster Club.

@ svaubel Nintendo not spamming VC with multiple releases doesn't mean they had given up on the service. Faxanadu was just released last week with Final Fantasy VI and Lufia coming soon too.

Still seems like Nintendo has completely given up on the VC over WiiWare. Oh wait, they have been for over a year now.
