Final Tales of Monkey Island Chapter Available for Wii

February 1, 2010 | Posted by Adam Larck

Another Monday means another Nintendo weekly update. This week, quite a bit is being offered for each system, with the WiiWare getting three games, the Virtual Console getting one and the DSiWare getting five.

For WiiWare, fans that have been following the Tales of Monkey Island series can finally get Chapter 5 for 1,000 Wii Points. The chapter will finally tie all the storylines to a close, as players “experience the Rise of the Pirate God.”

Next for the WiiWare is Tumblebugs 2, selling for 800 WP. Tumble has to save the Tumblebugs from the Black Bugs by solving various puzzles with the help of friends. The game features 89 levels, and also has new power-ups.

Finally, 5 in 1 Solitaire is now available for 500 Wii Points. There’s not much more to say about solitaire that you don’t already know. The five games featured are Klondike, Spider, FreeCell, Golf and Gaps.

Going to the Virtual Console, the lone release there is the next game in the Alex Kidd series: Alex Kidd in Shinobi World. The game, selling for 500 WP, has players taking Kidd through Shinobi World, rescuing princesses and taking on Dark Ninjas. It also features a remixed Shinobi soundtrack, as well as 12 stages to go through.

On the DsiWare, True Swing Golf Express can be picked up for 800 DSi Points. Players can go through either a 3-, 9- or 18-hole course while trying their skills out on the links. By beating all the tasks in the Challenge mode that’s available, players will also improve their character’s skills and unlock new courses to play in Round mode.

For RPG fans, Legends of Exidia can be picked up for 800 DSiP. Like most RPGs, you have to save the world of Exidia from an army of demons, called Morgost, as they try to revive an ancient evil called Daraka.

Gambling fans also have a game of their own this week with Downtown Texas Hold’em for 500 DSiP. The game features two game modes, various casinos to play in and even a multiplayer to take on up to five other friends.

Next, we have Move your Brain Rollway Puzzle for 500 DSiP. Players move the ball to solve riddles and escape enemies to beat each level. The game uses the camera to detect motion, so you tilt the system to move the ball. Each level also has a time limit, so players can’t sit there and try to slowly plan their next move.

Finally, the DSi is also getting its own copy of 5 in 1 Solitaire for 200 DSiP. The description and games in this solitaire game is the exact same as the one listed above, so read the WiiWare description if interested.
