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

A crime spree on the Virtual Console(TM) this week has resulted in a trio of
kidnappings, threatening to ruin the weekend of three classic video game stars
Mike Haggar, Dr. Tomari and Mighty Bomb Jack! Do you have what it takes to
bring their enemies to justice on three generations of consoles; NES, Super NES
and TurboGrafx16? For the best retro gaming around, it's time to pay a visit
to the red-hot Wii(TM) video game system's Wii Shop Channel.

The 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:

Mighty Bomb Jack(TM) (NES(R), 1 player, 500 Wii Points): Mighty Bomb Jack is
an action/adventure game that was originally released for the Nintendo
Entertainment System in 1987 by Tecmo. The hero of the game, Jack, must make
his way through 16 levels of a pyramid in order to defeat the demon Belzebut
and rescue the royal Pamera family. Each level is split into two parts; an
action zone and a Royal Palace room. Action zones can be split up into several
portions, and contain power-ups usually hidden in treasure chests such as money
bags, Mighty Coins, and Mighty Drinks. Mighty Coins allow Jack to change
colors; blue allows Jack to open orange treasure chests, orange allows him to
open any treasure chest by simply touching it from the side, and green
transforms all enemies on the screen into coins for 5 seconds. Mighty Drinks
add 10 seconds to the game's timer.

Final Fight (Super NES(R), 1 player, 800 Wii Points): Jessica had it all. She
was the daughter of former wrestling star and mayor of Metro City Mike Haggar
and girlfriend to Cody Travers, one of the coolest and toughest boys around.
But now she has been mysteriously kidnapped! Take to the streets with either
Haggar or Cody and fight your way across town, deep into the turf of the Mad
Gear Gang. As you cross the town, fight with all your strength to save the one
you love. Enjoy unmatched beat 'em up action in this arcade classic and
discover just who is behind the Mad Gear Gang in what may be Metro City's final

Ordyne(TM) (TurboGrafx16, 2 players, 600 Wii Points): Ordyne is a port of the
popular side-scrolling arcade shooter that includes simultaneoustwo-player
co-op play as well as impressive visuals and catchy background music. The evil
Kubota has kidnapped Dr. Tomari's fiancee, Kana, and taken the colossal nuclear
reactor Ordyne. In order to reclaim them, Dr. Tomari and his assistant Felix
take to their battleships and head off in pursuit. Avoid enemies and advance
through seven different levels that take place on land, sea, and air. Collect
crystals from defeated enemies and use them to buy items or upgrades for your
ship at the Space Inn. Do you have what it takes to defeat the boss at the end
of each level and ultimately reach Kubota in the final stage, Kubota World?
