Wii-kly Update: Three New Classic Games Announced for Wii Shop Channel

Today Nintendo adds three new classic games to the popular Wii(TM) video game
system's Wii Shop Channel. The games go live at 9 a.m. Pacific time. Nintendo
adds new games to the channel every Monday. Wii owners with a high-speed
Internet connection can redeem Wii Points(TM) to download the games. Wii Points
can be purchased in the Wii Shop Channel or at retail outlets. This week's new
games are:

Excitebike(TM) (NES(R), 1 player, 500 Wii Points): Face crazy curves, hairpin
turns, and daredevil jumps as you race toward the checkered flag and the
Excitebike championship. Race against the clock or challenge an opponent. You
must keep your bearings as you fly through the air and avoid getting clipped by
other racers. Stay cool under pressure or your bike will overheat. If you get
tired of racing on the circuit, create your own course in Design Mode. There
you have access to all the ramps, mounds, bridges, and other obstacles
Excitebike has to offer.

Beyond Oasis(TM) (Sega Genesis, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): You are Prince Ali,
who has discovered a buried gold armlet. This armlet once belonged to a wizard
who waged a long war against the evil wielder of a silver armlet. The silver
armlet was used to create chaos and destruction, while the gold armlet had the
power to summon four spirits: the water spirit "Dytto," the fire spirit
"Efreet," the shadow spirit "Shade," and the plant spirit "Bow." To stop the
person who first discovered the ancient silver armlet and is again using it for
evil, Prince Ali travels the land of Oasis, gradually acquiring the ability to
summon the four spirits. Use your wits and speed to claim the silver armlet!

SPLATTERHOUSE(TM) (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, 600 Wii Points): Rick and
Jennifer, both parapsychology students at the local university, are visiting
West Mansion, site of the research lab where the famed Dr. West conducted some
of his most gruesome experiments. A sudden storm forces them to find shelter
inside the mansion. Once inside, they are attacked by monsters. Jennifer is
kidnapped and Rick is knocked unconscious. Hours later, Rick awakes to find
himself covered in blood, with the Terror Mask stuck to his face. His only hope
is to depend on the ancient powers of the mask to give him the strength and
courage to find Jennifer. Now Rick's fight has begun! Splatter your way through
7 stages of side-scrolling horror action. Armed with cleavers and shotguns,
Rick must fight his way through the monsters of West Mansion and defeat the
bosses at the end of every stage. The creepy music, gruesome monsters, gory
action and shocking events leading up to the finale will keep you on the edge
of your seat!
