Bomberman Hero, Heavy Fire: Black Arms added to Wii Shop

It’s Monday and Nintendo has updated the Wii Shop Channel with two explosive games.

Blasting off first is Bomberman Hero, an N64 game that is now available on the Virtual Console. And blowing up on WiiWare is Heavy Fire: Black Arms, a light gun shooter from Teyon.

The three additions to the DSiWare service are a bit less combustible, but Gamebridge has released GO Series: Earth Saver, which is the closest thing to Armageddon The Game there’ll probably ever be. Other addition include the “platform racer” Jelly Car 2 and the swinging platformer G.G Series: Horizontal Bar.

More information on all of these games can be found after the break.

As an explosives expert, you can plant a series of bombs to create chain-reaction combos, easily blasting off chunks of rock the size of houses. You’ll also need to tackle the many strange alien life forms you encounter by either blowing them up or cunningly blasting around the piece of rock they’re standing on so they fall with the meteorite.
