Nintendo have updated the Shop Channel selection with three brand new Wiiware titles, including a new puzzle title, and a certain little bomber :D

Bomberman Blast from Hudson allows Wii owners to take on up to 8 others online and off, and offers unique Wii Remote Controls, Mii support and Online Rankings. All yours for only 1000 Wii points.

In Midnight Pool, players can pay through a full story mode that'll take them to the USA and beyond. In tow are special challenges and a two player mode for the sport. 800 Wii points are all you need for this one.

Lastly, Plattchen - Twist 'n' Paint is an innovative action-puzzle that requires quick reactions and brainpower. The game offers Wii Zapper support, and is yours for 1500 Wii points.




I downloaded Bomberman Blast last night, making it my 59th downloadable Wii game. I had to remove six games before I had enough space :(  *severe woe* I spent a couple of hours hooked on the game, it's pretty darn awesome in MP and well worth downloading. The game displays in 16:9 480p. I have played the Saturn version with ten players in the past but even that version does not compare with this, this game is far more awesome due to it's online ability and new modes.

I hear ya. I think I'm going to delete my Mario Kart Channel, one or two VC games, and my damn 128 block Smash Bros file. I need to invest in a SD card just so I can keep some unimportant save files on that.

Yea you gotta play on each stage at-least once. Then a message will thank you for trying out all the stages. Then you go to the user info page and then change it to your Mii. BTW you wanna swap friend codes?

I am starting to think we will only get it by the end of the month. I think Mega Man 9 will the only WiiWare release next Monday. I guess I will use my points anyway. But I still want Bomberman Blast!

It's not coming out this Monday. Mega Man 9 is.

But it should come out very soon so I'm probably expecting next Monday.

Or maybe both this week! That would be great.

Screw Mega Man 9. What has he done for me lately? NOTHING! I don't see no rings on these fingers. You don't own me!

Anyhoo, both games next week would be amazing. How are you guys getting the date for MM9?

Man, the game is pretty dope, and the way the menus flow and everything moves is so great. I'm really glad Hudson worked on this and not Backbone or whoever did Bomberman Live. This one just feels so right and controls so well.

Yeah, I own BL. Man, Blast is just superior to Live. The controls are better, the art design looks really great, the sound is great too.
The online is pretty fantastic. Its kinda like Mario Kart Wii where you have a set number of points and they'll increase if you do better or decrease if you do poorly. There's no online rooms like in Live, so you just connect, choose your game mode, then choose your level and I guess the game chooses the a random level and game mode from the selections players made.

I don't think there's teams online, but its okay. If you join a game in progress, you have to wait it out like in Mario Kart, except instead of watching them play, you get to play a little bomb dodge mini game.

I havn't played any single player, only multiplayer.

Nice. I was curious to know that because I didn't read any reviews where they compared both.

I have been playing Blast a lot since I got it on Monday. I keep saying to myself that "this will be my last match of the day" but I always end up playing many more!

Same. When I first got it I went off to try the online just for a bit to see how it plays and I ended up spending 40 minutes on it.
