New Game Get seeks out Cave Story, Red Steel 2, and DSi XL

Cave Story Wii

FINALLY, Cave Story comes out for WiiWare. Is it worth the wait and 1200 points?

The big release coming this Sunday will be the new DSi XL. Along with it, Nintendo is releasing America’s Test Kitchen and WarioWare DIY. And now Nintendo is putting out Game & Watch titles for download, kinda makes me want a DSi.

The other big DS releases this week are Shin Megami Tensei and Dawn of Heroes. The Wii gets a new MotionPlus game, Red Steel 2, which we hope will be better than the first Red Steel game. But if there’s one game coming out that I need to learn more about, it has to be Squishy Tank. How about you? Click on in for the full list.

Cave Story
Publisher: Nicalis, Inc.
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) – Mild Cartoon Violence, Mild Language
Price: 1,200 Wii Pointsâ„¢
Description: Cave Story takes you into a rare world where a curious race of innocent, rabbit-like creatures called Mimiga run free. You wake up in a dark cave with no memory of who you are, where you came from or why you’re in such a place. Uncovering Mimiga Village, you discover that the once-carefree Mimiga are in danger at the hands of a maniacal scientist. Their only hope rests squarely on the shoulders of a quiet, amnesiac boy who can’t remember his own name. Take control, learn the origins of this world’s power, stop the delusional villain and save the Mimiga.

Additionally, each track plays host to arcade-style checkpoint races and challenging speed trials in which you must keep the speed close to the max to avoid elimination.

    Really wasn’t expecting 1200 points for Cave Story. Plus I JUST bought Max & the Magic Marker yesterday…
    Also, I have the original Cement Factory Game & Watch here, in the box everything. You;d think it’s brand new, by the looks of it. 🙂 I was very careful child growing up.

  4. Xelpud says:

    Well, Cave Story is a definite purchase for me. I’ll wait to the the reviews on Red Steel 2 and the new SMT game, though I’ll probably pick those up later in the year, as Pokemon and Monster Hunter should keep me busy for quite some time to come.

  7. KEITH says:

  8. InvisibleMan says:

    My pre-ordered copy of Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey is already on its way…
    You guys should download the free demo of Rooms: The Main Building from the Nintendo Channel, it is phenomenal! (If you like Puzzle games, that is. I do.) I loved “The Matrix” reference!
