News: Puyo Puyo 2 and Milon's DokiDoki Adventure coming to the VC this week.
Puyo Puyo 2: Tsuu
Nintendo has added more import games to the Virtual Console this week with the release of DoReMi Fantasy: Milon's DokiDoki Adventure (a sequel to Milon's Secret Castle for the NES) and Puyo Puyo 2: Tsuu (the second Puyo Pop game).
Both titles have never reached American shores before, even though they were very well received in their native Japan. If this is the first time you've ever heard of these titles, Nintendo has given us a quick summary of each:
DoReMi Fantasy: Milon's DokiDoki Adventure (Super NES, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone ? Alcohol Reference and Comic Mischief, 900 Wii Points): This is an action game where an energetic boy named Milon sets off on a great adventure in a cute fairy-tale world. Piccolo is a village in the country of Fantasia. One day, they hear from the fairy Alis that songs and music have disappeared from the forest. Suddenly, the wizard Amon appears, grabs Alis and vanishes with her. The brave Milon must now go on a journey to rescue his kidnapped friend, with his bubble shooter as his only weapon. Along the way, he'll need to retrieve five legendary instruments and stars by defeating Amon's minions. Get ready to enjoy the fun and comical action of this charming game.
(Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 900 Wii Points): The object of this head-to-head puzzle game is to clear your grid of falling patterns called puyos by forming chains of four or more same-colored puyos in a straight line or one of several geometric patterns. What makes this a challenging two-player contest is the fact that when you clear a chain of puyos from your grid, it drops a random piece of filler onto your opponent's grid. The more puyos you clear, the more you fill your opponent's grid, and if you can clutter up his grid enough to fill it to the top, you've won the game. An intriguing backstory makes this an amusing experience for one or two players.
