Nintendo downloads: Just buy Contra

Konami makes it a good week for WiiWare

Nintendo's press release for this week's downloads heavily touts some six-in-one dictionary thing that's on DSiWare today. But forget that. It's all about Contra Rebirth.

It's an ALL NEW Contra, looks wicked and is so hardcore it'll kick your arse. Just the way a Contra game should be. Just get it.

Here's the otherwise lacklustre list of updates:

NINTENDO DSiWARE - Dictionary 6 in 1 with Camera Function
(Nintendo, 800 Nintendo DSi Points)

Dictionary 6 in 1 with Camera Function is no ordinary dictionary; it transforms your Nintendo DSi into a unique language tool. Enter a word by hand, or simply snap a photo of it, to receive an instant translation.

Thousands of everyday words and expressions in six different languages are included: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Japanese.

Use the Touch Screen to enter a word via the on-screen keyboard or write the letters by hand using the stylus. Alternatively, use the camera to take a photo of a word - such as in a magazine or on a sign - and the software will do the rest and translate it.

Dictionary 6 in 1 with Camera Function is useful when travelling, for casual study, or anytime you need to brush up your knowledge of foreign words.

WiiWARE - Contra Rebirth (Konami, 1000 Wii Points)

Contra Rebirth is packed full of explosive, action-packed shooting for one or two players. Take control of the Contra soldiers Bill Rizer and Lance Bean and protect Earth from an alien invasion. Arm yourself with powerful weapons and blast your way through hordes of deadly enemies and gigantic bosses. Destroy the evil Chief Salamander and his Neo-Salamander Force with you weapon of choice - select from machine guns, shot guns, homing missiles and the laser.
