action. WiiWare users will find Cocoto Platform Jumper, a wildly
imaginative new platformer populated by mysterious creatures. Last but
not least, Nobunaga's Ambition, a classic strategy game from the Super
NES system era, finds its way to the Virtual Console.

Meanwhile, Zaron, the god of lightning who lusts after this force, is up to something. He can count on the rulers of the other kingdoms that Cocoto must cross. The tragic kidnapping of Shiny, Baggy and Neuro has left Cocoto alone to watch over the cauldron. Refusing to leave his friends, he will set out to find them with Fairy.
Nobunaga's Ambition (Super NES, 1-8 players, Rated E for Everyone - Violent References, 800 Wii Points): Nobunaga's Ambition is a game set in Japan's Warring States period, a turbulent age when feudal warlords battled for control of the country.

Use all of your ingenuity and resources to unite Japan under your banner.
