The Weekly Nintendo Update is here once more to entertain and inform our readers as to what they have to look forward to and what they should avoid for their Wii and DS this week. On the bright side we get Sonic and Knuckles hitting the Wii’s vitual console, along with a double dose of Ace Attorney!


Ace Attorney Investigations Miles Edgeworth

Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth
System: DS
Price: $29.99

Miles Edgeworth was that annoying attorney that often clashed with Phoenix Wright. This game focuses on Edgeworth and the deaths that seem to follow him where ever he goes. You inspect crime scenes, get testimonies from witnesses, and find contradictions within witnesses stories to send the bad guys to jail.


System: DS
Price: $34.99

Ares is a poor little orphan boy who wants to become a famous adventurer, but little does he know that he is about to go on a quest that will put the fate of the world in his hands. He isn’t alone however, as he meets a girl named Sierra with mystical powers. Players can team up with up to 2 of their friends and try to conquer the Tower of Mirages.


Art of Balance

Price: 800 Wii Points

You get to use your mad skills to stack balanced piles of various things. The game features drop-in and drop-out co-op play so you and your friend can stack things. Yeah, I’m not going to buy it either.

Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: JUSTICE FOR ALL

Price: 1,000 Wii Points

This is the second game in the Ace Attorney series. You get a fantastic first person view of the courtroom and all of its proceedings, to quote myself, “You inspect crime scenes, get testimonies from witnesses, and find contradictions within witnesses stories to send the bad guys to jail.” There isn’t really a great deal of innovation between each game in this series, but why fix something that’s not broken?

WarMen Tactics

Price: 800 Wii Points

The year is 2013, and the police force and military have been fuzed into the Department of Control to deal with the growing civil unrest. Some ex-soldiers disagree with this department’s ethics and morals and Marco is one of them. You control Marco and see to it that the Department of Control ceases to exist!

Virtual Console

Sonic & Knuckles

Sonic & Knuckles

System: Sega Genesis

Price: 800 Wii Points

The blue hedgehog is back, and this time his rival Knuckles the echidna is tagging along. You choose between an adventure starring Sonic or Knuckles. It’s nice to play a Sonic title that doesn’t have Shadow, Amy, or a big fat cat with a frog fetish. It’s not the highly anticipated Sonic 4 (a.k.a. Project Needlemouse), but it will certainly help us from going into Sonic withdrawal while we wait.


Prehistorik Man

Price: 800 DSi Points

Sam the Prehistorik Man is his name and clubbing dinosaurs and eating are his game. Dinosaurs have stolen all of Sam’s village’s Winter food, so you must gather nutritional supplements through 22 levels in this title and save Sam and his loved ones from perishing a cold and hungry death.

Real Soccer 2010

Price: 800 DSi Points

I’m not quite sure what Fake Soccer is, but this game claims to be the polar opposite. You can pick one of the many teams in the game and kick some butt, while also managing your roster from the sidelines as coach.

Scrabble Classic

Price: 800 DSi Points

The classic spelling game returns, but this time it can fit in your pocket! You have the option to play scrabble by yourself, or rock some multiplayer with your friends on their DS. Scrabble fans will totally want to check this game out.

Spaceball: Revolution

Price: 500 DSi Points

Now clam down, your not going to be seeing Lord Dark Helmet using “The Shwartz” while busting a move on a dance mat, but instead you will get to solve puzzles… in a futuristic environment! Yeah, I’m getting bored of all of these puzzle titles on the DS too.


Price: 200 DSi Points

Spotto is a duck who is on a mission to save the kidnapped Chikkie Wowwow. Chikkie Wowwow is the president’s daughter and she has been kidnapped by evil ghosts and you must poop in their mouths to defeat them. It’s not very sanitary, but at least you now know how to defeat a ghost if you ever see one.

That ends this week’s Wii and DS round up. Stay tuned to Game Rant for more gaming goodness in the coming months!
