Nintendo DLC: Cards, paper planes, Cocoto, and Nobunaga

Once again, this week’s DSi Shop updates feature zero third-party titles, with two games crawling out of the Nintendo library. Clubhouse Games Express: Card Classics (1-8 players, 500 Nintendo DSi Points) and Paper Airplane Chase (1-2 players, 200 Nintendo DSi Points) both hit the shop today. One is, as you can imagine, a collection of card games. The other has players manueving a paper airplane through the air. Choose wisely. 

WiiWare sees an original title today, Cocoto Platform Jumper (Neko Entertainment, 1-4 players, 700 Wii Points). This is an interesting release, as the Cocoto series has seen release in European territories on everything from the GameCube to the Game Boy Advance; this would be its first appearance in North America. As expected, it’s a platformer where you control Cocoto, a little devil child… thing. Anyone out there from across the pond familiar with the original titles? 

Finally, Virtual Console is now home to Koei’s classic Nobunaga’s Ambition (Super NES, 1-8 players, 800 Wii Points). I was never ambitious enough to get involved in any of this turn-based strategy goodness on any of the ten or so consoles it’s been released on. But I have a short attention span. People eat this kind of stuff up, apparently. Do you?
