Nintendo DLC: Excitebike, Frogger, Electroplankton


Three words -- Excitebike: World Rally (1-4 players, 1,000 Wii Points). The WiiWare update of the original that was just recently announced is available today, with online multiplayer, updated visuals, and more. The track editor makes it a return, as well, and so do I. I'm buying this game as soon as it's available for download, which should be today around 9:00 A.M. Pacific. Race with me, will you? 

Konami is also bringing Frogger back for Frogger Returns (1-2 players, 500 Wii Points), which has the frog looking both ways before it crosses a bunch of new roads with updated graphics and more. Dragon Master Spell Caster (1-2 players, 500 Wii Points) is not a remake, but clearly attempts to be all things to everyone -- dragons, masters, and spell casters. Can you be all three at once? Stickmen Studios, the game's developer, thinks so.

DSiWare sees the release of Hudson's Bomberman Blitz (1-8 players, 500 DSiPoints) and five Electroplankton games -- Trapy, Hanebow, Rec-Rec, Nanocarp, and Beatnes. They're all 200 DSi Points a piece, and will look familiar to anyone who already owns Electroplankton -- they're just standalone versions of that game's different modes. Still, even at 200 points a piece (along with the five other plankton, yet to be released), it's cheaper than finding a copy of the full game on eBay for more money than it's worth. 

Virtual Console also gets some love with Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap (Sega Master System, 1 player, 500 Wii Points) and Cybernoid (Commodore 64, 1 player, 500 Wii Points). But I repeat -- Excitebike: World Rally. That is all.
