(SQUARE ENIX, 500 Nintendo DSi Points)
Take control of a squad of monsters from the Dragon Quest series and wage war.
While the rules may be simple, you'll need all your strategic skills to win the battles. You'll need to be brave enough to lead your army of monsters into battle, learn their unique abilities, and plan your moves carefully to emerge the victor.
Compete in two modes: Versus and Survival; testing your skills against computer opponents in the single-player game, or battling against your friends in Nintendo DS Wireless Play. Or take the ultimate challenge and go online via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and pit your Dragon Quest prowess against players across the world.
NINTENDO DSiWARE - Photo Clock
(Nintendo, 200 Nintendo DSi Points)
Photo Clock turns your Nintendo DSi into a photo frame with added clock and alarm functions. Choose from a range of clock styles and alarms and use the photo feature to display a slideshow of pictures from the Nintendo DSi Camera album.
You can opt for analogue or 12-hour/24-hour digital clock displays, and set up to three separate alarms with three different tones. Photos displayed on the top screen will either be chosen randomly from your album or chosen based on the stickers they were tagged with.
VIRTUAL CONSOLE - Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap
(SEGA MASTER SYSTEM, 500 Wii Points)
Get ready for the final Wonder Boy adventure on SEGA MASTER SYSTEM. Picking up where Wonder Boy in Monster Land left off, our hero is making his way through a castle to defeat the mighty Mecha Dragon. But beware - when Wonder Boy defeats a Dragon, a curse forces him to take the shape of a were-animal, such as a Lizard-Man or Hawk-Man.
Wonder Boy must travel throughout Monster Land in search of the Salamander Cross, which has the power to remove curses. But where is it hidden - and what form will you take next?
VIRTUAL CONSOLE - Final Fight 2
(SUPER NINTENDO, 800 Wii Points)
The Mad Gear Gang has emerged once again, and this time they want revenge! They'll stop at nothing to bring Haggar and the entire world crumbling down. To prove they're serious, they've kidnapped Guy's master, Genryusai, along with his daughter, Rena, who is also Guy's fiancée.
Now Haggar must travel far and wide to search for Genryusai and Rena. But he's not alone - helping him are Rena's sister, Maki, and Haggar's apprentice, Carlos. Together, the three set out to take down the Mad Gear Gang once and for all!
Take control of any of the three heroes and make use of their unique techniques and abilities in a fast-paced adventure which will take you to locations all around the globe. And you're not alone, either - you can also have a friend join the heroic fight to bring an end to the Mad Gear Gang!
