Nintendo Download: Bingo Party Deluxe, Rival Turf!, more

It’s Monday morning and the weekly Nintendo Download is here, on schedule and as uneventful as ever.

This week sees the release of Bingo Party Deluxe on the Wii Shop Channel and Rival Turf! (formerly of the Super NES) on the Virtual Console.

The DSiWare Shop has received a trio of new games: priate puzzle-action game Ikibago; the action RPG Anonymous Notes: Chapter 2 – From The Abyss; and the slef-explanatory Picture Perfect Pocket Stylist.

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


Bingo Party Deluxe
Publisher: Ateam Inc.
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 500 Wii Points
In Bingo Party Deluxe, play with up to four players in 75-Ball Bingo, 90-Ball Bingo or Bingo Party game modes. (Additional controllers are required for multiplayer game play and are sold separately.) The more you play, the more Bingo points you collect. Keep collecting Bingo points to unlock fun goodies such as new game modes and Bingo card patterns. All Bingo game modes can also be played with computer players, and the difficulty setting can be easily adjusted to match your skill level. The exclusive Bingo Party game mode adds excitement by having players compete to find and stamp Bingo numbers on multiple Bingo cards, eventually completing patterns to earn big points. Players can also enjoy the classic 75-Ball Bingo and 90-Ball Bingo game modes. There’s plenty of fun for everyone.

Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) – Violence
Price: 800 Wii Points
Take back the streets with Rival Turf!, the classic two-player action game that originally launched on the Super NES. Clean up the streets in a fast and furious display of tag-team street-fighting action. Get your licks in with a range of attacks, from body slams and leg sweeps to jabs, hooks and uppercuts. Go it alone in single-player mode, fight alongside another player, or go head-to-head and toe-to-toe in the special Versus Mode. This could be the toughest fight of your life, so you’d better start swinging.

Nintendo DSiWare

Anonymous Notes: Chapter 2 – From The Abyss
Publisher: Sonic Powered
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) – Mild Fantasy Violence, Mild Suggestive Themes
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
Discover an action-packed RPG set inside an infinitely extending dungeon. Sweep away the monsters wriggling in many places and defeat a strong boss monster lurking in the deepest part of the dungeon. Even after the boss monster is defeated, the dungeon automatically re-creates itself, so players can try new games over and over. Using a skill called Soul Capture, the male character can take magic and other skills away from the monsters, as well as weapons and shields to power up. It’s exhilarating to strengthen your character by combining equipment and skills, and then crush the monsters in a sweep.
