NINTENDO DOWNLOAD: NEW DOWNLOADABLE LINEUP FEATURES SUPER BONK AND FRESH BASEBALL ACTION

April 4, 2011

Showers or no showers, the onset of April brings another round of new downloadable games for Nintendo systems. The Super NES™ favorite Super Bonk is now available on the Virtual Console™ service, giving Wii™ owners a fun new way to enjoy the hard-headed fun of the ****c series. And as real-world baseball comes back to life in ballparks across the nation, the Nintendo DSiWare™ service offers the hand-held excitement of Absolute Baseball, challenging players to guide their own customized teams to big-league victory. Dark dungeons, fairytale adventures and exotic fish add even greater variety to this week's lineup.

Unable to defend themselves against such heavy machinery, they must rely on the strength of their herd to work together and defeat the meddling robots. Take control of the cute, not-so-bright Stompies, and help them avoid being captured by invading robots. It's your duty to guide them successfully through each level. This fun strategy game offers 20 levels for many hours of game play.

[QUOTE="Shinobishyguy"][QUOTE="locopatho"]Happy happy happy! Hope this is a good sign for the Last Story and Dragon Quest X too!locopatho
considering how much they pushed IX and the DS remakes, something tells me you don't have to worry about dragon quest. [spoiler] Unless if they're scrapping it all together and making it for the 3ds [/spoiler]

O I'd cry! Been awaiting a big new console one for years.

You're lucky because Nintendo Power has news on it : http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=26830443&postcount=1

BTW It's still on Wii.

Since I can't find my other thread about River City Ransom 2 (maybe I didn't see it when I searched for this thread. I'll change thetopic titleagain), it's confirmed to be on Wiiware.

No words about coming outside Japan yet. But I agree about the article. Don't expect it before Fall/Autumn.

The transfer pack is what you're talking about but there was this thing :

It was the GB Hunter that allowed you to play GB/GBC games on a N64. Of course, it was rare and it was probably illegal. It was made in China.

Super Dodge Ball : http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2011/03/18/kunio_dodgeball/

River City Ransom 2 : http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2011/03/18/river_city_ransom_2/

No news about River City Ransom 2 coming to Wiiware but since SDB is coming I can assume it will come as well. RCR2 is announced for PCfor 2012.

You mean Holographic storage which yes Nintendo has the technology. Holography like something on Star Wars or Star Trek will not happen anytime soon.
