This week's new games are listed below.
NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits (1-2 Players, 1000 Wii Points) - Experience the story of Nyx, a winged girl who must descend from heaven in search of her missing friend, Icarus. You will need the help of Zeus and other gods from Olympus to summon their powers. They will let you cast rays, modify the scenery and control winds as you wish. By making your own wrist movements and pointing to the game screen, you will be able to achieve these and many other feats. Fly, aim and shoot using your Wii Remote controller. Play with a friend and maximize your abilities: While one controls Nyx, the other will control the powers from the gods.
Rock N’ Roll Climber (1 Player, 800 Wii Points) - Climb rocks using the innovative control scheme, which has you controlling your character’s movement using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers. If you want an even more immersive experience, optional support for the Wii Balance Board is also available. Make your way up an array of courses, ranging from the Pop level’s indoor rock wall to the Heavy Metal level’s waterfalls. In addition to the sense of accomplishment you’ll feel upon reaching the top, you might just be rewarded with your own guitar.
Super Star Wars (SNES, 1 Player, 800 Wii Points) - Join Luke, Han and Chewbacca in their war against the Evil Empire. Battle treacherous aliens. Pilot two vehicles in high-speed, first-person 3-D sequences. Rip through the desert in Luke's landspeeder. Clash with aliens in the Mos Eisley Cantina. Blast menacing boss monsters and Imperial stormtroopers. Attack TIE fighters in the trenches of the Death Star. Fight your way through the wastelands of Tatooine to the hostile streets of Mos Eisley and beyond.
Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters (1 Player, 800 Nintendo DSi Points) - This edition of the popular Brain Age series offers players a mix of new and familiar exercises, all with an artistic focus.
