Alien Crush Returns to Nintendo

Nintendo of America has today updated its Virtual Console and WiiWare download services with the latest releases:

WiiWare


ALIEN CRUSH RETURNS (Hudson Entertainment, 1-4 players, 800 Wii Points)
ALIEN CRUSH RETURNS is the ultimate incarnation of the popular TurboGrafx pinball classic, Alien Crush. Boasting innovative game and control features, this is one Wii experience that you don't want to miss. With all the ball-blazing simplicity and flipper action thrills of standard pinball, ALIEN CRUSH RETURNS has all the visual and digital elements that you've come to expect in a video game, including grotesque, eye-stunning playfields as well as unique Action Ball gimmicks that redefine the fun and excitement of pinball. You can even nudge the machine with your Wii Remote controller. What's more, you can connect via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to enjoy a variety of features such as four-player head-to-head action, high score competitions and Extra Stage downloads.

Home Sweet Home (Big Blue Bubble Inc., 1 player, 1,000 Wii Points)
Picture this scene... You move into your new home, and every room is perfect. Every room, except one. Here is the blank canvas for your vision, but you lack the know-how. Who do you call? The Home Sweet Home team! Home Sweet Home will give you the chance to unleash your hidden talents as an interior designer. You choose the furniture, patterns and colors to create a masterpiece that will blow your client away. With simple controls, a fun graphical style and an easy-to-use interface, Home Sweet Home allows you to nurture your creative side. Remember, a house is not a home until it is a Home Sweet Home.

Virtual Console


Space Harrier (Sega Master System, 1 player, 500 Wii Points)
Space Harrier was originally released in the arcade in the 1980s, developed by AM2, which also developed OutRun and Afterburner. Space Harrier is widely recognizable by many arcade fans due to its distinctive, colorful art design and its fast-paced action. The SEGA Master System version is considered a solid port of the arcade game, containing 18 levels of intense fun. As the "Space Harrier," you must fight your way through "The Land of Dragons" and defeat the bosses at the end of each level to restore peace to the land. Are you prepared? Get ready!

Will US readers be picking any of these up soon?

Silly Rabbit. It's a new WiiWare game.

I think the pinball game on the PC that you get for free is just fine. The only pinball game I've ever bought was pokemon pinball, mainly because I was a pokemon fanatic at the time.

Alien crush gets alot of good reviews, althogh for me it just isn't good enough.

Agree - I can see the appeal, but the game really isn't for me. Looks pretty sweet visually for WiiWare though!
