Sin And Punishment 2

Sin and Punishment's Wii debut was also its (legal) North America debut. The Japan only N64 rail shooter was critically approved and beloved of core gamers. WiiHD gathers its VC presentation was also a market success, because Nintendo has announced its successor, Sin and Punishment 2, is coming to Wii.

Grab the trailer after the break.

Will Animales Go Retail Instead of WiiWare?


Is it possible that Animales de le Muerte, everyone's favorite Mexican Zoo Zombie Shooter, will go retail instead of WiiWare? According to Eric Nofsinger, High Voltage hasn't decided.

We are still working on Animales but aren't sure whether to make this another WiiWare game or maybe a full blown Wii title.

This is news to WiiHD. We thought Animales was already done and just waiting for Nintendo to choose a release date.

From the same interview, Eric says HVS is looking into Co-op mode options for The Conduit, but splitscreen isn't going to happen. The excuse? The same as WaWii's. Too much graphical fidelity. I'm guessing no one tipped them off that they could crank down the graphics for splitscreen. (Thanks to Gamefaqs user CatsBall for the heads-up on Conduit Multiplayer)

Moon (DS) Weapons and Environments

The Official Moon Website has achieved liftoff. You've already seen the screenshots and the videos, but the website also offers a list of weapons, vehicles, and environments along with a brief description. This list functions as a nice preview of the depth of the game.

Weapons List:

  • Guns
    • SAR - A high impact energy weapon.
    • Lepton Spread - A neutron shotgun.
    • Oxid Cannon - A short range, portable nuclear cannon. Yes, nuclear.
    • Seeker Pod - A gravity weapon prototype for clearing room prior to entering, not for close range.
    • Fermion Sniper - A laser based sniper rifle.
    • Quanta Rifle - fires highly corrosive (affects metals and organics) ionic projectiles
    • Muon Pistol - Handgun with more range and precision than normal.
  • Vehicles List:
    • Remote Access Droid - a robot that established a direct neural link and leaves you vulnerable to attack while you manipulate it. Think about the spider droids in Bond: Everything or Nothing or the Ninja kitties in Tenchu 4.
    • LOLA RR10 - Low-Gravity Land-based Recon and Repulse Vehicle is equipped with a powerful laser turret. You'll be driving this from the cockpit, not a neural interface.

After the break there's some screens and a description of each environment.

Pack Some Portable Heat with Metal Slug 7

Is Contra 4 just not doing it for you anymore? Looking for some frantic side-scrolling shoot 'em up action that you can stow in your pocket in between sessions?

Coming November 18th to a store near you, the latest installment in the Metal Slug series hopes to recapture the never-say-die spirit of the franchise in a more portable package than you might remember it from. You'll have 7 all new missions and 6 characters to play them with, as well as new weapons, bosses, slugs and modes.

Check out the media after the break.

Mini Cores: Pirates: The Key of Dreams

Today's Mini Cores focus is on Pirates, today's new WiiWare entry. From the video (after the break), it looks to be a nice fast paced little shooter on the high seas. If it's not fast enough for you, Oxygen games tells us there is a Turbo Mode.

Pirates: The Key of Dreams is a frantic nautical shoot-em-up available exclusively through the Nintendo Channel - Sail your way across the Caribbean, cannons blazing, looting booty, running blockades, and ultimately, battling Blackbeard himself!

The player takes control of a Navy Captain sent deep undercover as a ruthless Pirate, in order to seek out and retrieve The Key of Dreams, a valuable and dangerous cursed artifact. Rescue castaways to bolster your ship's crew, gaining performance increases to your navigation, weaponry, structural integrity and cartography skills. Collect increasingly powerful weaponry including Rockets, Mines, Chain Shot, Saw Blades and a Flamethrower to hurl destruction into the path of your enemies. Play against three of your scurvy friends or AI opponents in pitched multiplayer battles over 35 levels, in seven themed environments. Choose from different ship types that reflect your play style, and play in turbo mode if you think you're Pirate enough!

It's 1000 points, so check out the video after the break before you buy to make sure this game is what you're after.

Duke Nukem Trilogy

Duke Nukem Trilogy has been announced for the DS. It'll have 3 episodes (Critical Mass, Chain Reaction and Proving Grounds) with 36 levels total, 3D graphics and 3D Characters, though it's still unclear what the perspective will be, so don't hope for a free-moving FPS just yet. DS Fanboy hypothesizes that it'll be a 2D sidescroller with 3D elements.

Some WiiHD's first FPS action came on Duke Nukem 3D, so we'd love to see a return to that style of gaming. On DS, however, a good sidescroller can still be fun. With that many levels, you'd almost anticipate a more limited 2D playing area. Those DS carts aren't made of memory. Well, I guess technically they are made memory, but you know what we mean.

Mega Man 9 Goes Retro

Mega Man is rumored to return in it's former 8-bit glory. To WiiWare. Nintendo Wii Fanboy brings us a post from the Mega Man network that appears to contain scans from an upcoming Nintendo Power magazine to that effect.

WiiHD has nothing against 2D gaming, though we had previously hoped for a Metroid Prime-style 3Difying of Mega Man. But why not do it up Lost Winds style? Semi-modern 3D graphics operating in a 2D gameplay area? Ah well, never underestimate the power of nostalgia.

When the news around a single title piles up, especially around review time, we like to punch it out in one post. Today, that pile surrounds Gyrostarr, High Voltage's incredible bargain, with 50 levels, 50 bonus levels, and 4 player (offline) coop at only 700 points. Reviews are chosen based on content and insight, and are not always from the biggest sources.

Zentendo: 9/10

WiiWare World: 7/10

Longhorns747 (IGN Reader Review): 8.5/10

New Gyrostarr (WiiWare) Screens

WiiWare World has 7 new Gyrostarr Screens. Gyrostarr being another project from WiiHD's favorite developer High Voltage. It's an on-rails space shooter that doesn't let you get to the next level unless you collect enough energy, and it features 4 player offline coop. Looks pretty exciting, and once it hits, it'll be just 700 points.

Hit the break for the screens and a trailer.
