There's only one release for the Nintendo VC this week and it's 1080 Snowboarding
(1000 points). We haven't seen anything on Nintendo has been cutting back on the VC releases lately but it's a bit odd to see things slow down from three releases a week for most of last year to two releases and now down to one. I guess it's going to be an easy week for Cyril this week.
