What new digital treasure await the Wii Point and DSi Point bearing Nintendo fan this week? Perhaps most noteworthy is arrival of Mario vs Donkey Kong: Minis March Again!, announced last week for the Nintendo DSi and available right now.
This week's new downloadable titles for WiiWare, DSiWare and the Wii Virtual Console has a focus on history, as the historical military simulation Ghengis Khan II: Clan of the Gray Wolf, originally for the Super Nintendo, joins the not so historical Swords & Soldiers, each a Virtual Console and WiiWare game, respectively.
Slightly less attention is given to the fishing arts, thanks to Fish 'Em All. It's a fishing game! For better descriptions of each title, packed with exclamation points(!) and "prices" for each new digital download, read on.
