It's a good week to be a DSi owner. Breaking the drought of offerings for Nintendo consoles from the last few weeks is six new DSiWare games made available today. The Wii's still a bit lacking but at least you guys get another King of Fighters title.
King of Fighters '95 once again brings together SNK's finest to compile a 24-character roster. Introduced in KoF95 is the Team Edit mode where teams of up to four players per team battle it out until one side is knocked out. Aside from the "Orochi Saga" story arc that begins here, KoF95 is quite similar to The King of Fighters '94. The Neo-Geo brawler sets you back 900 Wii Points.
5 Arcade Gems take after classic games of the past such as side-scrolling shooters in space, a knight going through several floors of a dungeon, and buggy racing. The going price for this collection is 700 Wii Points.
Brain Drain needs puzzle pieces rotated and placed properly before the puzzle can be solved. Among the 200 puzzles spread across three modes are undesired effects that can hinder your progress. This one will run you for 500 Wii Points.
Now, how about that DSiWare deluge? Scrabble Slam! is based on the popular card game where players stack cards to keep making new words as fast as possible. It plays quite similar to Speed or Nertz, only using letters instead of numbers. Fans can compliment this with Scrabble Classic for 500 DSi Points.
Don't Feed The Animals puts the tower defense genre in an unlikely setting: the backyard. Kids have amassed a large pile of treats and it's attracting various wildlife ranging from raccoons to bears. Make use of three robots that defend with melee attacks, water, or sound before the treats are stolen or your pile is invaded. Defend the sweetness for 500 DSi Points.
Puffins: Let's Roll tasks the player with rolling puffin eggs back to the safety of their mothers. When you're not dodging trees and rocks, you can gather capelin fish to feed the rescued babies. Explore the joys of puffin motherhood for 500 DSi Points.
DodoGo! continues the egg-rescuing theme with sentient dodo eggs that act on their own and blissfully unaware of their surroundings. Keep 'em safe by sawing, digging, and blowing up anything that might harm the precious yolks. 800 DSi Points nets you over 100 missions of protecting the little guys.
System Flaw Recruit makes use of the DSi camera by making your physical surroundings as levels in the game. Use the radar on the top screen to help you find incoming enemies and shoot them down. The fight comes from anywhere you go for 500 DSi Points.
Ferrari GT: Evolution has 32 authentic Ferrari cars to race across seven different tracks from around the world. But before you can show off against your friends in wireless play, you'll need to get your license first. This official racer's entry fee is 800 DSi Points.
Lastly, the "Big Name Game" for WarioWare: D.I.Y. this week is made by Edmund McMillen of Team Meat, the studio behind the upcoming Super Meat Boy that's coming to WiiWare this summer. Save Meat Boy's girlfriend... or not.
