Nintendo's DSiWare shop is also in for a busy week, as three new titles are now available for download for the multifunctional portable. Ubisoft's Battle of Giants: Dragons - Bronze Edition tasks gamers with exploring a mythical land as a magical dragon, hunting for 25 stolen bronze gems across 10 levels. The 800 DSi point ($8) title also lets up to four players compete in head-to-head combat.

BiP Media has released its portable strategy title Viking Invasion onto Nintendo's handheld this week for 800 DSi points ($8) as well. The game sees players fending off Asgard's legions by constructing defenses and other fortifications across 10 levels, a campaign mode, a survival mode, and three difficulty settings. Nintendo's Sparkle Snapshot rounds out the DSi's offerings this week for 500 points ($5) and offers new frames, backgrounds, and more for pictures taken with the handheld's camera.
