Good morning @TyeThe truly hidden gems are the ones that aren’t even available anymore due to the Wii Shop Channel closing, and among those, one of the best, most charming WiiWare games I’ve played is Bonsai Barber.
It’s been ages since I’ve played it, but I have such fond memories of the game. It’s so sad that pretty much no one else is ever going to play the game again since it’s not available anymore and will likely never be ported to a newer console… =(
I played hundred of hours of Zangeki no Reginleiv in japanese and this makes me VERY HAPPY.Good evening everyone, and thanks @curl-6 for creating this really nice topic.
I'm Brand Newman, amateur translator of Japanese Wii games.
I hope this won't come as pretentious, but I've already read about two games I've translated on this thread. So I thought I might leave a little message about them, considering some can be easily seen as "gems".
So, here's the trailer for "Zangeki No Reginleiv", a hack-n-slash, nordic mythology version of EDF:
I also read someone talked about Earth Seeker, a "Monster Hunter"-like game of some sort with a really strong appeal:
I also did "Ikenie No Yoru", a very effective horror game that can be played with the Wii Balance Board:
Takt of Magic, a game that makes real good use of the Wiimote, allowing you to cast spell by drawing "runes" with it (and the music is marvelous):
And finally, there's a Wiiware called Line Attack Heroes, that was supposed to be released worldwide by Greezo (the company behind the "Ocarina" remakes for the 3ds), and ended up stuck in Japan:
All these translations can be downloaded following the links in the descriptions.
I'm currently working on Chibi-Robo (the "New Control" version, only released in Japan), and hope I can released it by the end of the year.
If you happen to like what you see in these trailers, give these games a chance, I think some of you might enjoy them!
And if you want to stay up-to-date with my progress, you can find me on Twitter, where I (BrandNewman06) : I try to publish info and new pictures on a semi-regular basis!
Everybody has a good day, and keep playing the Wii!
