Nintendo 3DS eShop update adds Toki Tori, Theatrhythm DLC

Nintendo 3DS eShop update adds Toki Tori, Theatrhythm DLC

Plus arcade classic The Last Blade on Wii.

Game Boy Color platformer Toki Tori arrives on the 3DS eShop this Thursday, priced 3.60.

Two Tribes' well-received puzzler launched late enough on the Color that it was overlooked by many. Here's hoping the bird-based puzzler sprouts another set of wings here.

This week's update also brings another four tracks for musical RPG spin-off Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy. Each of the following costs 90p to download: Movement in Green (FF10 - FMS), Sunken Shrine (FF01 - FMS), Battle Theme (FF10 - BMS) and Fight On! (FF07 - BMS).

WiiWare launches in Europe

Six games at launch - pricing inside.

Nintendo's WiiWare service for downloadable first- and third-party games has launched in Europe with six brand new games to try out.

The headlining duo are LostWinds from Frontier Developments, which earned itself a handsome 9/10 in our review, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King from Square Enix, which is a sort of RPG Sim City.

The other launch titles are Dr Mario & Germ Buster, a Wiimote-enabled remake of the classic Nintendo puzzler; Star Soldier R, a high-scores shoot-'em-up from Hudson; TV Show King, a basic quiz game from Gameloft; and Toki Tori, a puzzle/platform game where to play as a chicken.

How they work and their features.

Since you've already stared lovingly at the European WiiWare launch line-up, some of which are due out on 20th May, we thought you might like a bit more information on each of the games. Prices listed are based on US and Japanese equivalents, as Nintendo was unable to confirm European pricing when we asked.

(Update 20th May, 7.17am: Pricing is now confirmed. The only two on this list not available at the 20th May launch are Pirates: The Key of Dreams and Pop.)

European WiiWare launch line-up

Eight games, but not all on 20th May.

Nintendo has announced the European WiiWare launch line-up, which is headlined by LostWinds from Frontier and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King by Square Enix.

Yesterday saw the launch of the US WiiWare service, featuring six titles, but we actually get eight in Europe on 20th May, missing out on the US' Defend your Castle and V.I.P Casino: Blackjack but gaining Dr. Mario & Germ Buster from Nintendo, Pirates: The Key of Dreams from Oxygen Interactive, Star Soldier R from Hudson and Toki Tori from Two Tribes.

Update, 12.05pm: Nintendo has been in touch to say "not all eight titles will be immediately available from the May 20th launch date". The wording in the press release was, "From 20th May onwards a whole host of brand new creative games from developers across Europe and the rest of the globe become available, including..." followed by a list. We've asked Nintendo to clarify which ones will be out when.
