VC Japan (Tuesday, May 6)
- Axelay (Super Famicom, 800 points)
- Burning Fight (Neo Geo, 900 points)
- Super Fantasy Zone (Mega Drive, 600 points)
- Star Parodier (PC Engine, 800 points)

VC Europe (Friday, May 9)
- Cho Aniki (TurboGrafx-16, 900 points)
- Metal Slug (Neo Geo, 900 points)
- Break In (TurboGrafx-16, 700 points)
- Puyo Puyo 2 (Mega Drive, 900 points)

WiiWare North America (Monday, May 12 - descriptions stolen from Wired | GameLife)
- Defend Your Castle: 500 points - Based on the popular browser game, your job is to defend your castle by picking up the little invaders who try to storm it and fling them away by flicking the Wiimote. The WiiWare version has adorable new graphics.
- Pop: 700 points - Burst bubbles by pointing the Wii remote and clicking on them. You'll need to pop only bubbles of the same color if you want to rack up big point-scoring bonuses. A multiplayer mode for up to four players creates fierce competition.
- V.I.P. Casino: Blackjack: 700 points - Yeah, it's... blackjack. Don't know what to tell you about this one, as we've never played or even heard about it. We'll update once we play it, maybe even with an actual screenshot.
- TV Show King: 1,000 points - A multiplayer quiz-show game with 3,000 questions. It promises to let us "use the Wii Remote controller in original ways," meaning that it's likely you'll have to do more than just point and click to score points.
- LostWinds: 1,000 points - This side-scrolling platform game uses the Wiimote to control the wind. Blow your character across obstacles, light fires, etc. We only got hands-on for a few minutes at a media event, but it looked great. More at: http://blog.wired.com/games/2008/04/nintendos-media.html
- Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King: 1,500 points - Square Enix's inaugural WiiWare title uses characters from its popular RPG series in a Sims-style simulation game that tasks you with repopulating a ghost town and keeping its inhabitants happy.

VC North America (Monday, May 12)
- I don't think there's going to be anything, since we're getting a half-dozen WiiWare games. I'll update this if I'm wrong. Or just tell me off or something.

Wii North America (Tuesday, May 13)
- We Ski
- Deca Sports
- Castle of Shikigami III
- Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Also, there are new DS demos in the Nintendo Channel. I'll list those in the DS thread, which I won't get to post until after I get home from work because of my work's web filter, my RSS reader, and how DSfanboy.com formats their posts.

Infendo confirms that there are no VC releases this week. I hope that isn't the start of a trend.

I forgot all about WiiWare and blew my last saved Wii Points on Yoshi's Cookie a few weeks ago. *slaps forehead* I would much rather have spent the 500 on Defend Your Castle.

Damn, and here I was thinking they'd release Mother 2 (a.k.a. Earthbound) for Mother's Day.

They'll probably be back with more VC games next week; I think they're just going to cut back on weeks when they're bringing out WiiWare games.

VC Japan (Tuesday, May 13)
- Bubble Bobble (Famicom, 500 points)
- Alex Kidd in Miracle World (Sega Master System, 500 points)
- Martial Champion (PC Engine CD-ROM, 800 points)

In Japanese, "Bubble Bobble" is pronounced "bub-a-roo BOB-a-roo."
