Pokemon Snap included in this week’s virtual console updates

Nintendo put up one of my old favorite N64 games, Pokemon Snap. It was my favorite for about a week, until I snapped everything. I even had the guide to the game, which I didn’t really need, but somehow had anyway.

Nintendo has reportedly changed the game so you can share your Pokemon Snap pictures with other people and save the pictures to the Wii Message Board. That in itself is a really cool new feature.

Nintendo has also updated the Wii Shop Channel so you can now send other people games off of the Shop Channel. It’s supposed to be a way to help you buy gifts this holiday season (I kid you not, that’s basically what it said). I rather get a Wii Points Card for someone. I can see how in the future this could be a good feature, but it’s really cheesy to advertise this feature is great for the holiday season (thanks for being politically correct Nintendo).

Anyways, besides Pokemon Snap,  Ghosts’n Goblins (I am pretty sure this was released before), and the not at all popular BASEBALL STARS 2 are also available on the Wii Virtual Console.

Sorry for the general lateness of this post, I’ve been busy.

To skip forward here are this week’s latest titles: ZANAC, Eternal Champions? and The Dynastic Hero. All with crappy names. Yeah, Enternal Champions? is a real title. Why it has that questionmark, I have no idea. I bet it’s japanese translated.

Here are the descriptions:

ZANAC (NES, 1 player, rated E for Everyone – Mild Fantasy Violence, 500 Wii Points): ZANAC is a vertically scrolling shoot-’em-up game that was released in November 1986. Take control of the state-of-the-art fighter, ZANAC, with the objective of destroying the bases of the mechanized enemy forces. Use your full array of regular weapons as well as eight special weapons to clear the 12 intense areas of the game. Be careful, though, as the game changes the degree of difficulty in real time based on how well you play. This ensures that it feels like you’re experiencing a new game every time you play.

Eternal Champions? (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, rated T for Teen – Animated Blood, Animated Violence, 800 Wii Points): This 2-D fighting game introduces a cast of different characters that met untimely deaths in their lives on Earth. Now they have been given a chance to compete against each other, with the winner taking on the Eternal Champion, the ultimate fighter in the universe. The reward for defeating the Eternal Champion is a return to Earth for the opportunity to avenge death and restore balance to the universe. Choose from nine unique characters with a variety of fighting styles, and bring your best moves to defeat all comers in your quest to topple the Eternal Champion.

The Dynastic Hero (TurboGrafx16 CD-ROM, 1 player, rated E for Everyone – Comic Mischief, 800 Wii Points): The Dynastic Hero is an action RPG featuring a cast of insect characters. The story begins with the invasion of their peaceful homeland of Tarron by the evil Drilkor Empire. Rushing to the insects’ aid is Dyna, the prince of Beetras. Take control of Dyna as he battles through action-filled stages. Equip weapons and items to vanquish the relentless foes, and acquire special items that enable you to brave the journey across the perilous desert or open sea. But it’s not just all action. Correctly answer multiple-choice quizzes, and play the ocarina to find the right melody to open doors. Plus, there are countless traps and other puzzles packed into this fun game to keep you entertained and ensure you continue coming back for more.

Nintendo gives us the welcome back to the few weeks before Christmas message that tells us that we should all spend a little time shopping from the safety of our couch, away from the chaos of the malls. I think Nintendo is hinting at something. I have yet to figure out what they are talking about.

Maybe they are asking us to buy stuff off the Wii Shop Channel. No wait…Why would they ask us that?

Jokes aside (however they did say that message), Nintendo gave us a few games (that I would be more than happy to push aside). This week’s Wii Virtual Console games are: DOUBLE DRIBBLE, Vegas Stakes and the lovable Ecco Jr. Awww.

To come back with the tradition, here are the descriptions of the games:

DOUBLE DRIBBLE (NES, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): DOUBLE DRIBBLE, the first 5-on-5, full-court home basketball game, is pure hoops action at its finest. While still a surprisingly accurate basketball game for its time, the frantic action keeps you on your toes as your players run from one end of the court to the other. Choose from a handful of teams and multiple levels of difficulty as you take on the computer alone or challenge a friend and see who has the better skills. Take the ball and sink shots from locations all over the court, or get in your opponent’s face and do your best to block the shot. Better yet, drive the lane and rock the rim to see one of the game’s trademark slam-dunk cut scenes. He shoots, he scores!

Vegas Stakes (Super NES, 1-4 players, rated E for Everyone – Simulated Gambling, 800 Wii Points): Feel like taking a road trip to Las Vegas? Let your inner high roller go wild as you try your luck at five different games-blackjack, slots, poker, craps and roulette. Start with only $1,000 in your pocket and play your way through five casinos, each with a different theme and varying limits. But no one wants to gamble alone, right? Not a problem, as you’ll be able to choose one of four friends to tag along and offer advice when you need it. Further enhancing the experience is the fact that you’ll be presented with a slew of interactions with random casino patrons. Best be careful, though-your choices in these situations could either get you closer to the millions of dollars you’re after or cost you a pile of that hard-earned cash. Roll the dice, spin the wheel, hit or stand-do whatever it takes to stake your claim in Vegas and beat the house!

Ecco Jr. (Sega Genesis, 1 player, rated E for Everyone, 800 Wii Points): The aquatic adventures of Ecco come to life for a younger generation of gamers. Perfect for kids, Ecco Jr. finds our young hero heading out to sea with a variety of tasks he must perform in order to get there. Along with his friends Tara the baby orca and Kitnee the young Atlantic dolphin, Ecco Jr. will interact with sea lions, sea horses and other aquatic life as he makes his journey to the Big Blue. Introduce your kids to the classic series of Ecco the Dolphin titles by downloading Ecco Jr. today.

That last line of Ecco the Dolphin wasn’t needed Nintendo! Stop begging for our money by doing that “perfect gift” message again. We heard you the first time with Check Mii Out. It’s not funny.

This Week’s Virtual Console games

Posted on November 6, 2007 by MASA.
Categories: Gaming, Old School, Wii.

In honor of Super Mario Galaxy coming out next week, Nintendo released the game they call “The Greatest Game Ever” to the Wii Virtual Console. And no, it’s not Duck Hunt. And in no way is it Super Smash Bros. It’s Super Mario Bros. 3. Woo… Yeah, that’s not the “greatest game ever”. Sorry Nintendo. Along with it is Alien Soldier for 900 points (it’s an import) and Power Golf.

Anyways, despite that disappointment, there is always next time. Here are Nintendo’s descriptions of the games:

Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Remember when no one had ever heard of a Tanooki Suit or knew that Bowser had a clan of Koopalings? The game that made these things common knowledge is also considered by many to be one of the best ever made. Bowser and the Koopalings are causing chaos yet again, but this time they’re going beyond the Mushroom Kingdom into the seven worlds that neighbor it. Now Mario and Luigi must battle new enemies, returning favorites and a new Koopaling in each unique and distinctive world on their way to ultimately taking on Bowser himself. Luckily for the brothers, they have more power-ups available than ever before. Fly above the action using the Super Leaf, swim faster by donning the Frog Suit or defeat enemies using the Hammer Bros. Suit. Use the brand-new overworld map to take the chance to play a minigame in hopes of gaining extra lives or to find a Toad’s House where you can pick up additional items. All this (and more) combines into one of gaming’s most well-known and beloved titles—are you ready to experience gaming bliss?

Alien Soldier (Sega Genesis, 1 player, Rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older –Fantasy Violence, 900 Wii Points): As Epsilon-Eagle, you are an alien soldier who has been genetically engineered to produce maximum intelligence and strength. You were once a member of the criminal organization Scarlet, but when you decided to break from the group, you were forced into a showdown with Scarlet’s new leader Xi-Tiger, who kills a hostage in his attempt to destroy you. Now it’s up to you to take revenge against the bad guys in this side-scrolling action game! Choose from six different weapons and battle the bosses of Scarlet until you reach the final confrontation with the ultimate secret weapon!

Power Golf (TurboGrafx16, 1-3 players, Rated E for Everyone, 600 Wii Points): Power Golf sports a perfect combination of simple-yet-realistic controls and beautiful graphics. Swing away on 18 lush holes in one of three different game modes: the single-player STROKE PLAY mode and the multiplayer MATCH PLAY and COMPETITION modes. Enter tournaments as one of three different characters—beginner, intermediate and advanced. Wind strength and the slope of the green add extra challenges to each hole. Compete against other players in the standard NORMAL MATCH or ante up one of your clubs in the unique CLUB MATCH. Up to three players can play in COMPETITION mode, and a handicap feature is included to help novice players pull off breathtaking shots just like their advanced rivals.

Neogeo joins the list of consoles that appear on the virtual console

Posted on October 8, 2007 by MASA.
Categories: Gaming, Old School, Wii.

News from Nintendo, NeoGeo console games are now appearing on the Wii Virtual Console. Each NeoGeo game is about 900 Wii Points.

Here are the descriptions of this week’s games:

FATAL FURY (NEOGEO, 1-2 players, rated T for Teen – Violence, 900 Wii Points): Released in 1991 and one of the longest-running series in the fighting-game genre, this title introduced players to Terry Bogard, Andy Bogard and Joe Higashi. Select one of the three and visit many locations as your chosen fighter engages in numerous street fights around the fictional city of South Town. If you’re good enough, you’ll eventually take on Billy Kane and then his boss, the notorious crime lord Geese Howard. Use each fighter’s own finishing maneuver and battle in two different planes on the screen, one in the foreground and the other farther away in the background. The game also features a two-player mode that is well known for its unique setup, which allows fighters to both fight and help each other. Do you have what it takes to win the King of Fighters tournament?

WORLD HEROES (NEOGEO, 1-2 players, rated T for Teen – Animated Blood, Violence, 900 Wii Points): A fighting game released in 1992 featuring eight characters, including Hanzo, Janne and Rasputin, modeled on historical figures from throughout the ages. The fighters compete against each other to become the world’s toughest combatant, with players using a setup consisting of only three buttons (one each for punching, kicking and throwing). Adding to this unique system is the fact that the strength of your offensive blow depends on how long the button is pressed and held. Along with regular match styles, Death Match mode is also available and features mines, electrified ropes and other dangerous objects in the battle arena that can change conditions during the fight or damage players. Enjoy the wide range of combat forms as you take on history’s best!

ART OF FIGHTING (NEOGEO, 1-2 players, rated T for Teen – Animated Blood, Violence, 900 Wii Points): This fighting game, released in 1992, began the story of the Sakazaki family and Robert Garcia, further developed in two later sequels. Yuri Sakazaki has been abducted by Mr. Big to punish her father, Takuma, and her brother, Ryo. To rescue her, Ryo and Robert must take on numerous enemies around South Town, eventually reaching the mysterious Mr. Karate. The passion of the game’s creators is evident in the unique game-play elements introduced. These include an energy gauge that is depleted every time a fighter uses a special maneuver, Desperation Attacks that are usable only when a fighter’s health is low and camera zooming that adjusts on the fly as fighters move around the stage. All these features ensure that players use strategy and tactics, rather than simply mash buttons. Adding to the mix are little touches such as characters showing cuts when they are injured and voice-over samples during cut scenes. Can you perfect the art of fighting and save Yuri?

Nintendo Virtual Console games from Japan

Posted on October 1, 2007 by MASA.
Categories: Gaming, Old School, Wii.

Sin & PunishmentNintendo has imported this week’s Virtual Console games (and seriously over-charged one [thus breaking their regular pricing methods]. Geez). So people waiting for Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels can sleep soundly tonight ’cause Nintendo “imported” this title from Japan.

The other title, which was originally announced for America (very very quietly in a copy of Nintendo Power [which 4 issues later disappeared from the charts only to appear in Japan]), is Sin & Punishment which is a highly requested one. Oddly, it’s also worth much much more than regular N64 games costing about 1200 points (those 200 extra points are probably due to the fact this game is pretty rare or it had to be translated). If you know anything about Sin & Punishment, you might remember that the game has English voice acting (and the Wii version still has that same Voice Acting). The game now has English menus (different from the old game where all text was in Japanese).

Here are Nintendo’s Descriptions:

Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels (NES , 1 player, rated E for Everyone, 600 Wii Points): Originally released in Japan as Super Mario Bros. 2, this game has previously made only brief cameo appearances in the Western Hemisphere. Now available on the Virtual Console in all of its original splendor, Mario fans will appreciate the familiar look and feel of the game, while finding that its updated game play creates an entirely new challenge. No longer content just to wear different-colored overalls, Mario and Luigi also possess different skill sets: Mario can stop quicker, while Luigi can jump higher. In addition to the classic enemies already known to fans worldwide, there are also Poison Mushrooms, backward Warp Zones, and the occasional wind gust (which can help or hinder your progress) to take into account. And if that’s somehow not enough, expert players can go looking for the game’s secret worlds. So get ready to put your Mario skills to the ultimate test, and save the Princess again. Just don’t be surprised if she’s in another castle.
Sin & Punishment (Nintendo 64, 1-2 players, rated T for Teen – Blood, Fantasy Violence, Mild Language, 1,200 Wii Points): Created by the legendary development studio Treasure, this is a game that hard-core gamers and fans of Japanese imports recognize as one of the finest Nintendo 64 titles to have never previously reached North American shores. Its unique combination of English voice-overs with Japanese subtitles (preserved in this version) has only added to the enthusiasm for its eventual release here. Experience the frenetic pace of a classic shooter, while choosing from a variety of options and a number of different skill levels until you are ready to take on the full-blown challenge of Turbo Hard mode. Not to be outdone by the action, however, the intriguing story line gives the game its soul and draws you even further into the mix. Set in the near future, on an overpopulated Earth starved for resources, players uncover the intriguing mystery of two teenagers (Saki and Airan) and their battle against the Ruffians as they advance through level after level of nonstop action. Take a deep breath, gather your energy and prepare to see why this game is so highly praised.

Wii Virtual Console Update

Categories: Gaming, Old School, Wii.

This week, Kirby’s Avalanche, Streets of Rage 3 and LEGEND OF HERO TONMA are featured on the Wii Virtual Console. Normally, these kind of news stories would be longer, but I have been (and still am) feeling sick for the last week.

So here are the descriptions of the new games. Hopefully, I will feel better soon and the site will be updated more frequently.

Kirby’s Avalanche (Super NES, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone, 800 Wii Points): Everyone’s favorite round, pink hero takes a break from swallowing his enemies to put your brain to work in this fast-paced puzzle game. Players take control of Kirby and match wits with well-known enemies from the Kirby series (including his archrival, King Dedede) in an effort to win the First Annual Dream Land Avalanche Competition. The simple-but-addictive game play revolves around brightly colored blobs and boulders. When the right amount of matching blobs are stacked, they explode and rain down on your opponent’s field of play. Repeat this until your screen is clear to move on to the next round. But be careful—the farther you advance, the faster the blobs fall and the smarter the opponents get. Are you good enough to help Kirby become the avalanche king?

Streets of Rage 3 (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, rated E 10+ for Everyone 10 and Older – Violence, 800 Wii Points): Just when you thought the world was safe from the Syndicate and its shady leader, Mr. X, they have returned to torment the city once again. Mr. X has developed lifelike robots to take the place of various city officials so he can be in complete control. Now it’s up to our old heroes Axel, Skate and Blaze to stop the threat with their amazing fighting skills. With more weapons and combat moves, as well as secret characters and various endings, this return to the streets is one you won’t want to miss.

LEGEND OF HERO TONMA (TurboGrafx16, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone – Mild Cartoon Violence, 600 Wii Points): LEGEND OF HERO TONMA is an action game that puts players in control of the magic-user Tonma, whose role – as was typical for game heroes of the day – is to travel to another world and save the princess. Fight your way through seven stages using Tonma’s jump ability and shot power. Collect power-ups and barriers to grow in strength and pummel your enemies. Bring that strength to the end of each stage to face off against and defeat the menacing bosses that aim to keep you from the princess. This well-detailed game’s comic visuals and feel will have players wanting to come back for more frantic and exciting action.

Very very very late Wii Virtual Console update

Posted on September 13, 2007 by MASA.
Categories: Gaming, Old School, Wii.

I am so sorry about the delay, I meant to do this eariler but I have been so busy with work.

To make it quick here are the descriptions:

NES Play Action Football (NES, 1-4 players, rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): “Ready! Hut hut hut…” Nintendo takes to the gridiron with the classic football powerhouse NES Play Action Football. Featuring a distinct overhead viewpoint that creates an almost 3-D field, the action is more simulation-based than many of the more arcade-based games of the time. Play through four 15-minute quarters (in accelerated time) and even substitute players when your first-stringers get tired. Want more options? Each of the eight available teams has multiple running/passing plays to choose from while on offense, as well as a wide selection of defensive schemes that can be run when you’re on the other side of the ball. And in addition to viewing two full teams on the screen at once without any slowdown, you’ll hear voice snippets at key points of the game. Line up, and see if you have what it takes to win the Power Bowl.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone – Comic Mischief, 800 Wii Points): Sonic and Tails are back for another adventure as they again battle the evil Dr. Eggman (aka Dr. Robotnik), who is desperately trying to collect all the Chaos Emeralds to rebuild his Death Egg. Our heroes must again find the Chaos Emeralds before Dr. Eggman does, but winning the race won’t be easy this time – a new adversary, Knuckles the Echidna, has arrived on the scene and will do whatever he can to keep Sonic and Tails from reaching their goal. Grab all the golden rings, find various bonus zones and overcome Knuckles and Dr. Eggman as you rocket through the third chapter in Sonic’s adventures.

Neutopia II (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, rated E for Everyone – Mild Fantasy Violence, 600 Wii Points): Experience improved graphics and controls in this exciting sequel to the action role-playing game Neutopia. Take on the role of the main hero’s son and watch as the story begins with the apparent revival of Dirth, the evil demon. Once again you’ll need to rely on your magic compass and the information you’ve gathered to find entrances to labyrinths and defeat the bosses in them. Make your way through the field, which can be tricky at times, to search for and find hidden information and items, or move blocks and destroy walls to uncover secret rooms. Like the original, this game has a save function, a finely tuned difficulty level and a fast-paced story, making it truly an RPG that everyone can enjoy.

Four new Wii Virtual Console titles this week

Posted on September 3, 2007 by MASA.
Categories: Gaming, Old School, Wii.

Wow, Nintendo released 4 titles for this week. Maybe it’s because one of the titles is educational. So the games for this week are: Adventure Island, Donkey Kong Jr. Math, Landstalker: The Treasures of King Nole, and of course Bonk 3: Bonk’s Big Adventure.

Land Stalker is like Final Fantasy in terms of the HUD, and has similar elements to Legend of Zelda (2 LOZ clones on the Wii Virtual Console, with one on its way). When I first heard Adventure Island, I immediately thought of Monkey Island (this is not the case). Adventure Island is..well I let you just read the description yourself.

Here are Nintendo’s descriptions of the newly released games:

Adventure Island (NES, 1 player, rated E for Everyone – Comic Mischief, 500 Wii Points): A mysterious tropical paradise known as Adventure Island is the setting for this side-scrolling action game. The evil Witch Doctor has kidnapped Tina, the true love of Master Higgins. To save her, you must safely guide Master Higgins through eight perilous stages – including dense forests and creepy caves – while defeating all of the enemies in your path. Each area is made up of four rounds filled with enemies determined to stop you in your tracks. In addition, as time passes, Master Higgins’s vitality is automatically drained. To keep going, he must eat constantly by grabbing fruit, milk and whatever other goodies he can as he races toward his goal. Sometimes eggs containing miraculous items like axes to throw at enemies or honey that grants temporary invincibility will appear. Use items skillfully to help you clear the areas. At the end of each area you’ll face the Witch Doctor, who you must defeat to advance. Go, Master Higgins, go!

Donkey Kong Jr. Math (NES, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Learning can be fun, especially when you play along with Donkey Kong Jr. Practice addition, subtraction, multiplication and division by directing Junior, a cute little monkey who must climb up and down vines to collect numbers and math symbols to solve the math problems his father gives him. Compete with a friend in a race to solve problems in Game A or add more challenge with Game B. Of course, you can also practice on your own. This game is perfect for younger players who are looking for a fun and easy way to develop their math skills.

Landstalker: The Treasures of King Nole (Sega Genesis, 1 player, rated E for Everyone – Mild Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): After hearing of the legendary treasure of King Nole, the elvish treasure hunter Nigel undertakes a quest to gather various pieces of the famed loot. His journey takes him through Mercator Island’s villages, caves and dungeons that hold King Nole’s riches. Along the way, he’ll have to help the inhabitants of the island while fighting against the treachery of Duke Mercator, who is searching for the treasure as well. A variety of obstacles and foes will try to deter Nigel, who must use all his wits and skills to defeat Duke Mercator and uncover the secret of King Nole’s treasure.

Bonk 3: Bonk’s Big Adventure (TurboGrafx16, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone – Comic Mischief, 600 Wii Points): The hard-headed hero is back for more side-scrolling action in the third installment of the popular Bonk series. It’s up to Bonk once again to thwart the plans of the relentless evil King Drool. There are seven rounds scattered throughout the Dinosaur Kingdom, each one filled with fun contraptions and comical enemies. Grab a Flower Copter or exchange 16 Smileys at the end of each round to play up to eight different bonus stages. Or you can change the size of Bonk by grabbing the new red or blue candy items. Depending on the situation, you can change your size to bonk your way through a dead end or to get a hard-to-reach item. And if that’s not enough, you can grab a friend and put your heads together to defeat King Drool in the new two-player mode.

Donkey Kong Country 4 isn’t completely out of the question

Posted on September 2, 2007 by Wailord.
Categories: Gaming, Old School.

As you may or may not know (I’ll assume the latter), Rare’s UK site (rare.co.uk) has an interesting section called “Scribes“, where people send in questions or comments regarding the company and their games, and a nice-sized batch of them are answered whenever the next one goes up (which isn’t to often- three this year). Luckily, when it does update, it’s chock-full of information straight from the horse’s mouth- and the best part is that it isn’t all corporate and professional, meaning we get answers, not “we cannot comment on that at this time”. Which is cool.
Anyway, on to the actual post topic. The most recent update was the 30th of August (four days ago) and while most of the questions focused on Viva Pinata or Banjo, there were a few regarding Donkey Kong, one specifically regarding a new 2D Kong game. In reference to a a DKC4:

…while the latter’s not so likely unless Nintendo specifically requests it.

Mind you, I’m not saying that DKC4 is coming out any time soon. I’m not saying that at all- just that if push came to shove and Nintendo truly wanted another DKC game, well, they know who to hit up for the goods.

This month’s TurboGrafx-16 Wii Virtual Console games

Posted on by MASA.
Categories: Gaming, Old School, Wii.

Once again, Hudson Soft published the upcoming titles for the Wii Virtual Console before Nintendo (man, Nintendo really needs to let people know ahead of time).

Bonk 3We start this list out with what is coming out this week, Bonk 3: Bonk’s Big Adventure. It’s original title was: Bonk 3: Bonk didn’t get enough money from Bonk 2 so we decided to make another game so we can pack in that extra Bonk, so you can get the complete Bonk experience, if the first one wasn’t satisfactory. However this title got cut due to the over-usage of the fact that Bonk 2 wasn’t as good as Bonk 1.

In Bonk 3, you play as Bonk, the prehistoric caveman (and not like the ones from the Geico commercial) who “senses” something is wrong when the Moon is stuck under the sea. How that is even possible goes beyond me. In order to save the day you need to thwart Evil King Drool’s plans (what happens if he isn’t behind it, eh?). Bonk 3 will be available for 600 WiiPoints.

Neutopia 2Now onto the rest of the month. The next game is Neutopia II, the Legend of Zelda clone that was featured last week. Clearly, Legend of Zelda was an inspiration or maybe more than just an inspiration, more like guideline or something. Stuff about your father was going to be killed by a hideous monster, you fight stuff, some generic storyline, etc etc.

Then World Class Baseball, a sports game (obviously), is next in the Wii Virtual Console line. The last game to appear on the Wii Virtual Console for the TurboGrafx-16 is the Legend Of Hero Tonma, which happens to be like a Super Mario clone. In the game you play as a character named Tommy, who has to rescue a princess from bad guys. To defeat the bad guys, you have to shoot fireballs and/or jump on their heads (sound familiar?).

All games listed will be put up for 600 points each and they will appear sometime this month (except for Bonk 3, who’s release date is confirmed for tomorrow).
