Nintendo today uploaded two new games to its WiiWare download service on the Wii: World of Goo and Art Style: CUBELLO. The two WiiWare games are joined online by two Virtual Console games, Secret of Mana and Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition.
World of Goo (1-4 players, 1,500 Wii Points) is a physics-based puzzle/construction game in which players grab living globs of goo to build structures, bridges, cannonballs, zeppelins and giant tongues. Yep, that’s weird. Art Style: CUBELLO (1 player, 600 Wii Points), meanwhile, is a Nintendo-published game that mixes elements of a puzzle game with the reflexes of a shooter. As each stage begins, various colored cubes form into one large object called a Cubello, which floats and rotates on the screen. Players then launch additional cubes from their gun in an attempt to connect four or more of the same color, removing them from the Cubello (Tetris, anyone?).
Secret of Mana (800 Wii Points), which originally appeared on the SNES, portrays a classic battle of good vs. evil as they fight for the heart of a young warrior who must undertake a dangerous journey to find the seeds of the Mana tree, which have been hidden for centuries, and restore perfect harmony to the world.
Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition (800 Wii Points) should really need to introduction, as the Sega Genesis game is just like all the other Street Fighter 2 games out there, but with both the Champion and Hyper rule sets (those editions were released in the arcades). It also introduced an exclusive Group Battle mode.
