Nintendo downloads for the week of July 20

Oh, sick burn to the VC this week at it lacks any downloads at all, but one game totally makes up for a lack of a classic on WiiWare thankfully. Yes, this is the week FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: My Life as a Darklord (SQUARE ENIX, Players: 1, E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) – Mild Fantasy Violence, Mild Suggestive Themes, Price: 1,000 Wii Points) drops it like it is hot on WiiWare. It is accompanied by Battle Poker (Left Field Productions, Players: 1-4, E (Everyone), 800 Wii Points) and 5 Spots Party (Cosmonaut Games, Players: 1-4, E (Everyone), 500 Wii Points). DSiWare continues stalls its quick for this week at least with the release of Art Style: ZENGAGE (Nintendo, Players: 1, E (Everyone), 500 Nintendo DSi Points).

Poker and find the difference in the image games shoved aside Darklord looks mighty fun and as a game in the Final Fantasy series is sure to sell well for a WiiWare title. The game is basically the sequel to My Life as a King except with totally different gameplay and now you’re evil and have more weapons. If the first game was any indication this should be one of the better made WiiWare titles out there.

Zengage will offer up some more puzzle action for those looking for it on their DS — though, if you haven’t found it yet you’re not trying very hard. The game is a sliding bricks puzzler in which you have to match colors to clear a board. I’m sure the catchy style and cool music of all the Art Style games abounds in it.
