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

Three classic games from three classic systems. The only problem you'll have
this week is deciding which one to download first. For the best retro gaming
around, it's time to pay a visit to the popular Wii(TM) video game system's Wii
Shop Channel.

Three new classic 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:

Punch Out!!(R) Featuring Mr. Dream (NES(R), 1 player, 500 Wii Points): As young
boxer Little Mac, players have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to battle the big
guys of the World Video Boxing Association circuit. Take them on one by one,
starting with skinny Glass Joe. Battle up through King Hippo and all the way
to the WVBA Champion himself. Players use their best jabs, hooks and power
uppercuts to knock out opponents, but must pay attention to subtle changes in
their body position to dodge jaw-breaking blows. With great graphics, addictive
action and a touch of humor, this game will keep players entertained for hours.

Virtua Fighter(TM) 2 (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points): Virtua
Fighter was the very first 3-D fighting game in the industry and introduced six
unique characters, each with their own martial arts style. In Virtua Fighter
2, the intrepid fighters return to the World Fighting Tournament. Players take
to the stage to see who will claim the championship title. Will it be Lau
Chan, Kage-Maru, Wolf Hawkfield, Jeffry McWild, Akira Yuki, Jacky Bryant, Sarah
Bryant or Pai Chan? The answer lies within. Players immerse themselves in this
technically challenging game and see if they have what it takes to be the
champion of the second World Fighting Tournament.

Bonk's Revenge (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, 600 Wii Points): The "hardheaded" hero
is back for more in the second installment of the Bonk series. Taking place in
the Monster Kingdom, Bonk the Caveman makes his way toward King Drool III.
Bonk's Revenge is a side-scrolling action game in which players Jump and "Bonk"
(head-butt) their enemies while they make their way to the goal at the end of
each stage. Double, even triple, attack power by eating the meat that appears
in a stage. There are eight different hidden bonus stages, and the Dinosaur
Train that appears after players defeat a boss will change depending on how
many Smileys they've collected. With new actions such as the Triangle Jump and
the ability to climb trees, as well as seven variety-packed stages, Bonk's
Revenge will keep players playing over and over.
