News: While a bunch of DSiWare/WiiWare titles have been dated.



Two of Nintendo's biggest games scheduled for release this Summer have been delayed. Both will still arrive in the Summer, but not as soon as previously thought.

Sin & Punishment: Star Successor was originally scheduled for a June 7 release. The Wii shooter has now been pushed back a few weeks to June 27. This delay has also pushed back the game Nintendo originally had scheduled for June 27, Metroid: Other M. Samus Aran's next adventure (and first from developer Team Ninja) will now be released on August 31.

It's not all doom and gloom for Nintendo's future slate of games, the company also dated a wide variety of DSiWare and WiiWare titles. Best of all, the DSiWare "picture brawler" Photo Dojo will be available as a free download during its first month of availability (May 10 - June 10). Starting June 11, the game will be sold for the budget-friendly price of 200 DSi Points ($2).



Other soon to be released DSiWare and WiiWare games include:

  • Photo Dojo (Nintendo DSiWare, May 10): Get ready for some seriously fun Kung Fu action ? starring you! Create your own characters and record the sound effects using the Nintendo DSi system's camera and microphone. Use your imagination to set the stage for a fun-filled fight to the finish. In a special introductory offer, Photo Dojo will be available for free download via the Nintendo DSi Shop from May 10 to June 10. Starting June 11, the game will be available for download for 200 Nintendo DSi Points.

  • Earthworm Jim (Nintendo DSiWare, Gameloft, May 10): The classic action platformer is back with a never-before-seen feature, exclusively on the Nintendo DSi system. Run, gun, swing from hooks with your head, launch cows, bungee jump, rocket through speed levels and more, in crazy universes that offer huge game-play possibilities. Earn bonuses with facial expression-based challenges that track your face using the Nintendo DSi camera. Put on a smile, frown or make a variety of other faces to mimic Jim.

  • Bit.Trip Runner (WiiWare, Aksys Games, May 17): Marking the first character-based adventure for Captain Video, the newest installment in the Bit.Trip series features rhythm-based action platforming, more than 50 challenges to complete and a pounding chiptune-inspired soundtrack.

  • Looksley's Line Up (Nintendo DSiWare, May 17): In this unique take on hidden picture games, Looksley the rabbit needs your help to find inspiring objects so he can finish the story he's writing. The objects are hidden in 3-D dioramas made up of cutout layers that shift as you move the Nintendo DSi system. Unique Nintendo DSi camera-based controls let you peer deep into the game's scenes and hunt for hidden objects just by moving the Nintendo DSi.

  • Frogger Returns (Nintendo DSiWare, Konami, May 17): Frogger Returns takes the challenge of the arcade classic Frogger and brings it to the Nintendo DSiWare service for the first time.
