Posted on March 10, 2008, Chris Wii-kly Update Brings DoRemi Fantasy and Puyo Puyo 2 to the US
Nintendo has added two import titles to the Virtual Console today with the release of Puyo Puyo 2: Tsuu and DoReMi Fantasy: Milon’s DokiDoki Adventure. (No, I didn’t make that up.) You probably don’t need a degree in Japanese to tell that those games probably never made it Stateside, but now is your chance to try them out. Both games cost 900 Wii Points ($9).
The video above is footage from the early levels of Puyo Puyo 2.
DoReMi Fantasy: Milon’s DokiDoki Adventure (Super NES(R), 1 player, Rated E for Everyone – Alcohol Reference and Comic Mischief, 900 Wii Points): This is an action game where an energetic boy named Milon sets off on a great adventure in a cute fairy-tale world. Piccolo is a village in the country of Fantasia. One day, they hear from the fairy Alis that songs and music have disappeared from the forest. Suddenly, the wizard Amon appears, grabs Alis and vanishes with her. The brave Milon must now go on a journey to rescue his kidnapped friend, with his bubble shooter as his only weapon. Along the way, he’ll need to retrieve five legendary instruments and stars by defeating Amon’s minions. Get ready to enjoy the fun and comical action of this charming game.
Puyo Puyo 2: Tsuu (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 900 Wii Points): The object of this head-to-head puzzle game is to clear your grid of falling patterns called puyos by forming chains of four or more same-colored puyos in a straight line or one of several geometric patterns. What makes this a challenging two-player contest is the fact that when you clear a chain of puyos from your grid, it drops a random piece of filler onto your opponent’s grid. The more puyos you clear, the more you fill your opponent’s grid, and if you can clutter up his grid enough to fill it to the top, you’ve won the game. An intriguing backstory makes this an amusing experience for one or two players.
