Demos available on WiiWare

November 19, 2009

Famously demo-averse Nintendo is now serving up demos for three third-party games on its WiiWare service. Available free from the Wii Shop channel are demos of NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits, Bit.Trip: Beat, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord. Warning screens indicate that you can’t save any progress, and that the demos may “not support every feature of the full version.” The demos are supposed to only be available for a limited time, but we’ll take advantage of the opportunity to bring you our first demo review of a Wii game!

Nintendo’s US website claims five trials should be available, the additions being demos for Pokemon Rumble (not yet out in Europe) and World of Goo (we reviewed the PC demo here).
