Hudson was founded in 1973 by Yuji and Hiroshi Kudo. The company went on to produce hit series such as Mario Party, Adventure Island and, of course, Bomberman. While Konami acquired a  majority share of Hudson Soft in 2005, it wasn’t until last week that the merger was complete and Hudson became a fully absorbed entity. The developer left with these parting words via Twitter.

“Dear Hudson fans. Thanks for your support for all these years! We’ll be closing our account tomorrow. Please follow our titles @Konami”

To bid them a fond farewell, Hudson’s SNES title Super Bonk landed on Nintendo’s Virtual Console this morning.


With only two WiiWare demos and a couple of two buck DSiWare titles, this week’s update is a bit on the scant side. While that might not be the most exciting thing in the world, perhaps that is Nintendo’s intention. With the North American 3DS launch underway, Nintendo would probably rather you spent your money on a new portable than convert it into moon bucks for downloadable titles.

If you’re fortunate enough to already have got your hands on Nintendo’s newest portable, let us know what you think in the comments below. If not, this week’s update awaits you after the break.


Good morning internets! It’s Monday, Monday, gotta download on Monday. Everybody lookin’ forward to the Wii games. Party, and party, and yeah! Party, and party, and yeah! Fun, fun, fun, fun, lookin’ forward to the Wii games.

Virtual Console

  • Natsume Championship Wrestling [SNES] (Natsume Inc, 1-4 players, 800 Wii Points)


  • Arcade Essentials (Nordcurrent, 1 player, 500 Wii Points)
  • Dive: The Medes Islands Secret [demo version] (Cosmonaut Games, 1 player, 0 Wii Points; full version available for 1,000 Wii Points)

Nintendo DSiWare

  • G.G Series D-TANK (Genterprise Inc, 1 player, 200 DSi Points)
  • Shapo (Tik Games, LLC, 1 player, 500 DSi Points)


It’s Monday and that means another offering on Nintendo’s downloadable services. Usually we see more interesting titles hitting WiiWare while things like clocks and card games wind up on the DSi, but this week’s update bucks that trend. PopCap’s well-known tower defense title Plants vs. Zombies is now available on DSiWare. I suppose they need to do something to keep people interested in the DSi with the 3DS looming on the horizon.

Hit the jump for the rest of this week’s games.


The Bit.Trip series began nearly two years ago on Nintendo’s WiiWare service with a little title called Bit.Trip BEAT – a colourful and trippy take on Atari’s hit classic Pong. Little did I know it, but that title that I so hesitantly purchased would soon introduce me to one of my favourite series of all time.

In the twilight hours of my time with the series it became apparent to me that this epic finale has been a long time in the planning.


It’s Monday and that means another smattering of downloadable games on your respective current-generation Nintendo console of choice. My top pick for this week is Bomberman Hero for the N64…despite the fact that it doesn’t have a multiplayer mode. That may be a deal breaker for some, but I really remember having fun with this one back in the day.

The rest of this week’s games await you after the break.


I have good news and I have bad news.

Two years ago  Gaijin Games gave us Bit. Trip Beat. That little retro-rhythm title gave birth to one of my favourite series’ of all time. Sadly, the saga of Commander Video ends today. The sixth and final title in the series, Bit.Trip FLUX, landed on WiiWare earlier today. While, I am happy that Gaijin Games will be moving on to what will hopefully be bigger and brighter things, it will certainly sadden me to download the final title in this series.

A demo for Pong Toss Pro – Frat Party Games has also landed on the White Box O’Waggle’s online service. Let me just say that while I’m certain it is going to be terrible, I am unbelievably stoked there is a Beer Pong videogame available -for free- that I can share with all my “frat bros” for a good laugh. Hit the jump for the rest of this week’s downloadables.


The Bit.Trip series may be on its way out, but that isn’t slowing Gaijin Games down in the slightest. In just a few short years, the studio has gone from developer, to publisher, and now parent company. Gaijin has now announced their “extremely hostile takeover” of Jason Cirillo’s Robotube Games.

Robotube is best known for their series of educational videos - Bit Museam, they are also the studio behind web-based puzzle games such as Bloktonik and Zyrx. During Blip Festival 2009, the two developers teamed to create a game in less than 24 hours. Let’s hope they make many more wonderful games together.

You may or may not be familiar with a little indie game by the name of lilt line. In case you aren’t you should check out our review of this awesome little WiiWare / iOS game. Gaijin Games is bringing this awesome rhythm-racer to Europe in a couple weeks. If you’re a fan of dubstep, colorful visuals or brilliantly-simplistic game design I would highly recommend checking this one out.

“Not everyone is cut out to be a president, but every Wii™ and Nintendo DSi™ user must act as commander-in-chief of his or her own gaming republic. On this Presidents Day holiday, Nintendo recommends reaching across the aisle in the spirit of bipartisanship, creating harmony between new and classic titles, puzzle games and platformers, sprawling console adventures and crisp hand-held challenges.”

Hit the jump for this week’s releases.

Happy Valentine’s Day everybody. Why not celebrate with your loved ones by purchasing them some downloadable content for your Wii and DSi? There’s even Valentine’s Day themed WiiWare, à la Pucca’s kisses game, to get your manufactured-excuse-for-yet-another-consumer-holiday off on the right foot.

Hit the jump for today’s other offerings, including two new WiiWare demos.

Welcome to another exciting week of downloables for a Nintendo console near you. In my opinion, the real winner this week is the LIT demo. In case you missed it when it was first released, LIT is a horror puzzler. Now that there is a free version I would definitely recommend checking it out.

Shawn Johnson Gymnastics and a host of other titles also await you after the jump.
