News: A new Art Style game will be added to the DSiWare service as well.



Nintendo has finally made the move into 2005 and will begin offering demos of select WiiWare titles starting this week. The initial list of five demos includes this week's headlining game, a Pokemon battler known as Pokemon Rumble, as well as some of the service's biggest titles: Bit.Trip Beat, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord, NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits and World of Goo.

Obviously, a full version of Pokemon Rumble will also be made available this week and you can download it for 1,500 Wii Points ($15).

In other Nintendo Download news, LucasArts continues their support of the Virtual Console with the release of Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures (originally of the Super NES) while Capcom will add the TurboGrafx 16 version of Street Fighter II: Champion Edition to the service.

On the DSiWare side of things, Nintendo will release the latest game in the Art Style series, Art Style: DigiDrive. It will be joined by Arcade Bowling and Robot Rescue, a logic game.

More information on all six games can be found berlow.

WiiWare

Pok?mon Rumble
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) ? Mild Cartoon Violence
Price: 1,500 Wii Points
Available exclusively for the WiiWare service, Pok?mon Rumble is an action game in which you control Toy Pok?mon (referred to as "Pok?mon") and take on wave after wave of other Pok?mon in a variety of stages. You can befriend some of the defeated Pok?mon along the way, which lets you add them to your collection and grants you the ability to use them in battle. Switch between collected Pok?mon at any time, taking advantage of the fact that the amount of damage you deal depends on the type of move used and the type of Pok?mon hit. Be the last one standing to gain the right to compete in the Battle Royale and test your skills against many Pok?mon at once. You can also team up with three people for some multiplayer action (additional Wii Remote controllers required), working together to take down tough Bosses and earning points that can be used toward recruiting or training Pok?mon. You can even save your favorite Pok?mon to your Wii Remote controller for exchanges with friends. Combining beautiful cel-shaded graphics and exciting game-play features, this is one rumble you won't want to miss. Note that a demo version of Pok?mon Rumble is also available for zero Wii Points.



Virtual Console

Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures
Original Platform: Super NES
Publisher: LucasArts
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) ? Mild Violence
Price: 800 Wii Points
Grab your trusty whip and slash your way through all three Indy classics in this no-thrills-barred adventure. If it happened in the movies, it happens here: the giant boulder from Raiders of the Lost Ark, the mine-cart chase from Temple of Doom, the three trials from Last Crusade, Rene Belloq and Colonel Vogel ? it's three times the action, all in one fully loaded game.

Street Fighter II: Champion Edition
Original Platform: TurboGrafx16
Publisher: Capcom
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: T (Teen) ? Mild Blood, Violence
Price: 700 Wii Points
This is the classic PCEngine (TurboGrafx16) version of the two-player fighting game that started it all. At the time, a large capacity HuCARD was used to allow faithful recreation of the dynamic arcade game and its features, including bonus stages and sound effects. In the game, players select one of 12 characters and face opponents in a no-holds-barred battle to decide the top fighter. Master a character's special moves and combos to defeat your rivals around the world. In "V.S. BATTLE" mode, there's a convenient handicap feature. Using this feature to adjust a character's performance, a novice player can be evenly matched against a seasoned player to enjoy an intense, head-to-head combat experience.

Nintendo DSiWare

Art Style: DigiDrive
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 500 Nintendo DSi Points
It's traffic control with a twist as you try to direct identical cars down the same road in Art Style: DigiDrive. This constantly moving puzzle game combines an easily understood playing field (an intersection) and a simple goal (create fuel), challenging you to properly guide a never-ending stream of cars. Stack similar cars five deep to create some fuel, then use that fuel to continue your progress in the game. Play in ENDLESS mode to see how long you can last, or compete against the computer or a human opponent in VS mode. Use combos to your advantage and see if your reflexes can handle the intensity of Overdrive mode. When all is said and done, you may never look at gridlock quite the same way again.

Arcade Bowling
Publisher: Skyworks Interactive
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
From Skyworks comes another addictively classic game, Arcade Bowling. It was designed by video game legend David Crane, one of the original founders of Activision and one of the most critically acclaimed game designers of all time. In the tradition of everyone's favorite Boardwalk bowling game, use your stylus and steady aim to flick "laser" balls down the alley and up the ramp into the scoring holes. The farther away the scoring hole is, the more points you'll get. Arcade Bowling features three futuristic sound tracks, state-of-the-art 3-D graphics and two addictive game modes, Classic and Progressive. In Classic Mode, roll up to nine balls to score as many points as you can. In Progressive Mode, enjoy multiple levels of game play with increasing score plateaus and bonus targets.

Robot Rescue
Publisher: Teyon
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) ? Comic Mischief
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
Robot Rescue is a fun logic game based on a simple but entertaining concept. Your mission is to free robots trapped in 45 evil computer labyrinths while avoiding deadly traps. Sound easy? Not so fast. Each robot shares linked controls, so when you move one, you move them all. It will take clever planning and nerves of steel to pull off this electronic escape. You'll need to avoid many traps, such as mines or electrical circuits, and take advantage of special elements like glue stains. Choose one of three difficulty levels and get ready for a challenge.
