There are several offerings spread across DSiWare, WiiWare and Virtual Console today - all in celebration of another Hanabi festival. This typically fills Nintendo's online cupboards with old games previously restricted to Japan, and bumps the price up a bit in the process.
Those oldies are action platform Mega Drive game Pulseman, and SNES strategy game Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen. Both cost 900 Nintendo Points (GBP 6.30 / EUR 9 approx - online-bought points and shop-bought points differ in price).
Today also marks the release of Konami's first WiiWare game Gradius Rebirth, which will be followed by top-down racer Driift Mania later this month and Contra Rebirth in August.
Gradius Rebirth is joined on WiiWare by Bit Boy!!, a pixelated RPG, which has 4-bit dungeons, 8-bit caves, 16-bit strongholds, 32-bit labyrinths, 64-bit arenas and 128-bit worlds. Apparently. Gradius Rebirth and Bit Boy!! cost 600 NP (GBP 4.20 / EUR 6 approx) each.
DSiWare boasts two Mario-themed extras - a clock and a calculator - for 200 NP (GBP 1.40 / EUR 2 approx) each. There's also Brain Challenge, which isn't Brain Training but might as well be. Brain Challenge costs 800 NP (GBP 5.60 / EUR 8 approx).
