Default Nintendo Store Update: Chrono Trigger fires on Virtual Console

Gamers have a heap of new options this week on Nintendo's virtual marketplace, ranging from a 1995 classic SNES game on the Virtual Console to an arcade fishing game for WiiWare.

Leading the pack this week is Chrono Trigger (800 Wii points, or $8) on the Virtual Console. The game focuses on a main character named Crono and his friends Lucca and Marle. When inventor Lucca's teleportation experiment inadvertently sends the friends back in time, they discover an ancient evil that will one day ruin their world, and so they set out to fix it.

The game featured a wide variety of fantastical environments throughout its multitude of time periods, and its storyline was typically twisty for a Square Enix role-playing game. It was developed by a team led by Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii, Dragon Ball artist Akira Toriyama, and composer Yasunori Mitsuda.

Switching to the WiiWare download space, Nintendo added two new items today, the first of which is Gabrielle's Ghostly Groove: Monster Mix (500 Wii points, or $5). From Natsume, the game has players dancing their way to saving the troubled Monster Town. The game also sports a multiplayer mode where up to four gamers can dance together.

The other new item out today on WiiWare is a demo for Lead the Meerkats. The full game casts players as one of the savanna's little creatures and retails for 1,000 Wii points, or $10.

Gamers looking to grab a new game to take on the go have three new options to download today from the DSiWare hub, the first of which is Big Bass Arcade (500 DSi points, or $5). From Big John Games, the title has players taking to the water to catch as many slimy fish as possible. The game sports seven distinct lakes, nine different lures to use, three tournaments, and 42 total events.

Also out now on DSiWare is Word Searcher 3 (500 DSi points, or $5). The word search title has players testing their minds in 100 distinct levels. The game sports multiple categories, including astronomy, currency, and rivers. Further, each puzzle is scrambled upon completion, meaning that no puzzle will be repeated.

The last new game out now is Hellokids - Vol. 1: Coloring and Painting (200 DSi points, or $2). From BiP Media, the title has gamers coloring in 150 drawings. The game also sports three difficulty levels as well as a Freehand Drawing mode, where players can create whatever they wish.
