Space Trek lands on WiiWare

Nintendo Store Update: galactic flight combat title and A Monsteca Corral: Monsters vs. Robots added to download hub; puzzle platformer Divergent Shift hits DSiWare alongside three others.

Nintendo added six new games across its WiiWare and DSiWare download hot spots this week ranging from an aerial tussle title to a World Cup-themed singing game.

Leading the pack this week is Calaris' Space Trek (700 Wii points or $7). The single-player game casts players as Captain Jay, a jet pilot thrust into a hostile alien world. In the title, a player's flight skills will be tested by an array of attacking enemies like giant worms and environmental hazards like piping hot volcanoes. Players can mount their attacks with heavy firepower, as their ships are outfitted with six weapons ranging from the anti-matter thrower to the quark dispeller.

Captain Jay…not Kirk.

The other title arriving on WiiWare this week is A Monsteca Corral: Monsters vs. Robots (500 Wii points or $5). This one-to-four-player strategy game from Onteca thrusts players into the besieged planet of Monsteca, which is overrun by a robotic army bent on dominating the native Stompies. This is where player players come in; gamers are cast as controller of the little guys and must guide them to safety through 20 levels in a fully 3D world.

Switching to DSiWare, Nintendo added four new games to the portable hot spot this week; the first of which is Konami's Divergent Shift (800 DSi points or $8). The title is a puzzle platformer that requires players to simultaneously control two characters on two screens at once. The title sports two modes: Reflection and Shadow Mechanic, each requiring players to multitask if they wish to succeed.

Also hitting DSiWare this week is Just Sing! National Anthems (200 DSi points or $2). From Engine Software, the title casts players as a national anthem singer, belting out the national hymns for Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Japan, and the United States on the hallowed turf in South Africa at the site of World Cup 2010.

The last two games hitting the portable's download hub this week are 3D Mahjong (500 DSi points or $5), a single-player puzzle game with 50 unique layouts, and myNotebook: Carbon (500 DSi points or $5), which transforms the DSi into a note-taking tool.

@Coolyfett yes, report me to the mods... that is the grown up thing to do. I disagreed with you and did it politely. It is people like you who ruin this site and gaming in general. It is ppl like you that convinced me and many others to leave this sad site.

PSN definately knows how to do things in the download market. Nintendo could learn from them in the downloadable content area.

The Nintendo Store should start selling comic books for 200 points, thats a fair price. Digital comics are blowing up very fast. Coolyfett knows that Nintendo will have downloadable movies when the 3DS comes out. So far it seems Nintendo is really taking there time with the digital download market.

Wii = total failure. At least Nintendo made a bunch of $$ when tons of sheeple bought the system, too bad the hardware blows and the games are lame.
