Soon you’ll have a reason to spend those DSiWare points that came with the system. Nintendo of America set release dates for Looksley’s Line Up, Earthworm Jim, and the blistering fast bullet hell shooter Metal Torrent.
Photo Dojo, a make your own Mortal Kombat style fighting game, kicks off the DSiWare lineup on May 10. Gameloft’s portable version of Earthworm Jim with new face expression challenges comes out on the same day.
The week after on May 17 Looksley’s Line Up, a hidden picture game with 3D dioramas comes to North America. You may have seen the amazing tech demo before under its Japanese name, Hidden 3D Pictures. We played it too and it’s interesting enough to warrant 500 DSiWare Points ($5). Frogger Returns from Konami also comes out on the same day.
Then Metal Torrent aka Aa Mujou Setsuna in Japan makes its North American debut on May 24. Arika, the company that brought Ketsui to the Nintendo DS, developed this DSiWare download. You can read our playtest of the Japanese version here.
DSiWare action continues with X-Scape from Q Games, the rubbish burning game Flametail, and A Kappa’s Trail (pictured) in the following weeks.
