wonderboy_in_monsterlandThis week Nintendo makes an exception from the rule and instead of two WiiWare games, only releases one. However, just like always, the WiiWare title and the Virtual Console one go hand in hand, since they are both about fighting – but you choose against whom: fire-breathing dragons or cute creatures. Read each game’s details below to make up your mind!

Niki – Rock ‘n’ Ball is the new WiiWare title which you can purchase for 500 Wii Points. If you’re a fan of old arcade classics where the only goal is to vanquish all opponents to reach the next stage, this is the game for you: “Jump in the nick of time to avoid landing amid barbs. Hop across the stages thanks to the realistic gaming physics. Snap on the ZeLeLi amulet, transform yourself into Niki Rock, and force even the most obstinate monster to its knees. Explore all the stages and win valuable medals while dribbling through them, alone or with a friend” – the official description says it all.

Guide Wonder Boy through various environments and dungeons, and defeat enemies using Special Weapons and Spells, like you did with old school games!
