For Nintendo's original game service WiiWare, Hudson has released the puzzler Pop'Em Drop'Em SameGame. The 500 Wii point ($5) title challenges gamers to match block sets of two or more in a grid, with bonuses awarded for the most pieces cleared at once. The game also features three different multiplayer modes, each of which accommodates up to four players.

Hudson will also be revisiting its pint-sized explosives expert with Bomberman '94, originally released for the TurboGrafx-16. Available through the Virtual Console for 700 Wii points ($7), the competitive party game drops up to five gamers into a gladiatorial deathmatch, in which demo men compete for power-ups that increase their bomb-laying potential.

Konami's Detana TwinBee, which saw release on the TG-16 in the early '90s, will join Bomberman '94 on the Virtual Console at the 700 Wii point ($7) price. In contrast to Konami's Gradius series of vertical-scrolling shooters, Detana TwinBee plays up its cutesy aesthetic with six stages of off-kilter environments and enemies. The downloadable game features multiplayer action for up to two.
