Nintendo has made good on its promise to release demos of WiiWare games by uploading three of them to the European Wii Shop.
Nintendo's Friday online refresher brings brand-new content for Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, in the shape of Chapter 9 - The Crystals - the final part in the expansive RPG story. You can take it to the bridge for 800 Wii Points (approximately Ł6.75 - points bought online are cheaper).
Those who once held out hope for Nintendo’s WiiWare service as an outlet for charming, offbeat and innovative games might well be sobbing into their lacy handkerchiefs. While there’s no shortage of games available now, the prices remain prohibitively high and quality is an often secondary concern.
There are, however, some notable titles loitering in amongst the incomprehensible brawlers and bafflingly simplistic Wii Sports rip-offs. Here’s our pick of the more interesting efforts from the last few months.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord
As reported yesterday, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord is the headline game on Nintendo's online shops this week, and the platform holder today said it would cost 1000 Wii Points (GBP 7 / EUR 10 approx).
Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord will be released for WiiWare on 17th July, i.e. this Friday.
Nintendo has confirmed reports that Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is coming to WiiWare this year, and it will be joined by a sequel to My Life as a King, called Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord.
