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

Admit it. Somewhere deep inside, you've always wanted to go for the gold, take
down Monster World, and have people call you Vic Viper. How cool would that
be? Well, pay a visit to the popular Wii(TM) video game system's Wii Shop
Channel, and all those fantasies can now come true.

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: Gradius(R)III (SNES(R), 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points):

Return as the pilot of the Vic Viper starfighter to battle the onslaughts of
the Bacterion Empire. Blast through 10 action-packed levels in space,
destroying everything in your path. Customize and power up your ship with
weapons and upgrades including speed-ups, missiles, lasers, options, and

Wonder Boy(TM) in Monster World (Genesis, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): Monster
World was a peaceful, happy place until one dark day when an army of BioMeka
monsters invaded. As a young man named Shion, you've vowed to defeat the
hostile foes and make the land peaceful again. You'll attack enemies with
swords and spears and guard against incoming projectiles with shields and
armor. As you travel through the many different regions of Monster World,
you'll talk to the townspeople, collect money to buy items, and gather a large
variety of weapons and magic. The further you venture, the more powerful your
weapons and equipment, including suits of armor and boots, will become.

Battle Lode Runner(R) (TurboGrafx 16, 1-5 players, 600 Wii Points): This
upgraded edition to the famous Lode Runner series includes a 5-player versus
mode. Gold funds have been stolen from the Time Machine Research Center, and
the group responsible used a time machine to escape and hide the gold
throughout time. The center sends an elite team of "Runners" to go and
retrieve the gold. In addition to the familiar Puzzle mode, the game
features Battle mode, where up to 5 players can compete, and Edit mode, where
you can create your own original stages. You can enjoy Battle mode in a number
of different ways. Be the last one standing to win in Survival. Grab items
from enemies and escape to win in Escape. With 4 players, you can separate
into two teams to do battle in Tag Match.
