On WiiWare this week, look for the simply titled Eat! Fat! Fight! In this 2D fighting game, players will play mini-games to bulk up, then use the Wii motion controls to bounce their way through a series of increasingly challenging Sumo matches.
Also for WiiWare, The Magic Obelisk is a cute adventure game in which the player controls Popo the light spirit, as she guides Lukus the tree spirit through the world in search of the perfect place to be a tree. Lukus must stay in the shade until he reaches his destination, and so Popo helps him by using her magical light to shift the shadows of the obelisks, and other obstacles around each level. Lukus will also meet and interact with a zany cast of characters, including a troop of robots with a mysterious origin and various animals of the forest.
If you were in school in the ’90s, you probably played the popular educational game, The Oregon Trail. This game has gone through many versions since the original, including a terribly misguided real-video version earlier this decade. This week, we’re finally getting a portable version in our Spotlight release The Oregon Trail for DSiWare. Cross the early American West using a series of eight challenging stylus-based mini-games: Berry Picking, Gold Panning, Hunting, Fishing, River Crossing, Rafting, Telegraph Sending, and Wagon Repairing. Deal with harrowing random events like dust storms, bandits, lost supplies, animals blocking the road, and the always dreaded Dysentery. Finally, use the DSi camera to take pictures of yourself, along-side your in-game party, at each of the famous landmarks along the way.
