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

It's the age-old question: Which is cooler, ninjas or circular yellow
dot-eaters? This week the Wii(TM) video game system's Wii Shop Channel gives
gamers the chance to explore this subject in depth, with three awesome classic
games.
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:

Pac-Man(R) (NES(R), 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points): Move Pac-Man through the
maze, avoiding ghosts and eating all the Pac-Dots. Beware, each of the ghosts
behave differently. When Pac-Man chomps a Power Pellet, he becomes invincible
and is able to eat the blue ghosts. The more ghosts Pac-Man eats in a row, the
higher the score. Don't forget to eat the bonus fruit too. Released in 1980,
Pac-Man is the most well-known video game on Earth and is also commonly
acknowledged as one of the most successful coin-operated games in history.
Enjoy this masterpiece of gaming history today.

Ninja Gaiden(TM) (NES(R), 1 player, 500 Wii Points): Players take on the role
of Ryu Hayabusa, a rising warrior in his family's clan whose main role in the
world is to protect the Dark Dragon Blade from falling into the hands of evil.
Ryu travels to America to seek vengeance for his father's death. Players fight
their way through 14 challenging side-scrolling levels while defeating gangs of
street thugs, battling evil ninjas and fighting barbarian bosses by using the
deadly Dragon Sword, ninja skills and Ninpo (ninja magic). Players can run,
crouch, jump and climb as they make their way through each stage and collect
items to gain points, strength and weapons.

Ninja Spirit (TurboGrafx16, 1-2 players, 600 Wii Points): Ninja Spirit is a
side-scrolling action game that amazed the gaming world with its precision
graphics and quality game play. Play as the ninja Moonlight and engage in a
fierce battle to avenge his father's death and unlock the secrets of his birth.
Select between the original ARCADE MODE and PC-ENGINE MODE, which includes a
life gauge. Use four types of weapons: katana, shuriken, bombs and chain and
sickles to battle your way through the enemies. Pick up power-up items and
switch between weapons to give you the advantage. You'll need to consider the
enemy attacks and your weapon's abilities in order to deftly make it through
all seven stages. Use your skills and attacks to get through the game's
boundless enemies and traps. That's what ninja action is all about.
