News: There will be no "OBJECTION!" from gamers about this week's Nintendo downloads.



Nintendo has announced this week's slate of new additions to the Virtual Console, WiiWare and DSiWare services. Leading the way today is famed lawyer Phoenix Wright as his DS game Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney will be available on WiiWare starting today.

Also coming to WiiWare this week will be action platformer Chronos Twins DX and the silhouette puzzler ShadowPlay. The Virtual Console will also receive a new game, the Genesis mahjong sequel Shanghai II: Dragon's Eye.

On the DS side of things, Nintendo will be adding two puzzlers and another billiards game to the DSiWare service this week. Touch Solitaire, Word Searcher and Jazzy Billiards explain themselves pretty well right there in their titles.
