Magic Destiny soars to WiiWare
Nintendo Store Update: Astrology title and a pair of demos added to download hub; DSiWare welcomes All-Star Air Hockey, Mahjong, myDiary, and 101 Dolphin Pets.
First out of the gate this week on WiiWare is Magic Destiny (500 Wii points, or $5). From Shanblue Interactive, the title is geared toward astrology fans, as it contains an encyclopedia of astrological education, as well as a number of astrology-themed minigames like Runeblock, Diamonds Link, and Stellar Memory. Players can also read their future with tarot cards, seashells, numerology, palmistry, and fortune cookies.
Nintendo added two WiiWare demos to its download space this week, the first of which is for Akaoni Studios' Zombie Panic in Wonderland. The sampler lets players get a glimpse at the game’s action by wielding a machine gun and bringing the pain to the undead.
The other WiiWare demo out now is for Racers' Islands - Crazy Racers. This racing game from Zallag has players competing on a fictional television show, where they will guide their vehicle with one hand and manipulate their weaponry with the other.
Switching to DSiWare, Nintendo added four new games this week, the first of which is All-Star Air Hockey (200 DSi points, or $2). The title re-creates the classic arcade game and boasts two modes: Practice and Tournament.
Also now out for DSiWare is Mahjong (200 DSi points, or $2). A pocket-sized iteration of the classic Chinese title, Mahjong for the DSi sports single-player and two-player options, as well as extra items in the form of dynamite, whirlwind, and an hourglass to help players get the edge over their opponents.
Those wishing to transform their DSi into a diary can download myDiary (200 DSi points, or $2) now. The title lets players set alarms, lock out unwanted eyes, and practice time management with to-do lists. Players can also unlock 12 unique themes and ink colors.
The last DSiWare title out now is 101 Dolphin Pets (500 DSi points, or $5). From Teyon, the marine mammal title lets players rear the sea creatures from infancy to adulthood. Players can select one of the 101 dolphins or choose to adopt all of them. Players will discover the personalities of their dolphins as they raise them, and as the porpoises mature, players can enter their dolphins into competitions and earn money to spend on toys, food, clothes, and accessories.
