] Wii-kly Update: Three New Classic Games Added to Wii Shop Channel

Think you've got what it takes to be a hero? Prove it with these three heroic
games, available this week on the Wii Shop Channel. Whether you're rescuing
Mario's dinosaur pal from an eggshell or battling to protect the planet from
evil invaders, the future is in your hands.Three new classic games go live at 9
a.m. Pacific time. Nintendo adds new games to the Wii Shop Channel every
Monday. Wii(TM) 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:

Mach Rider(R) (NES(R), 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): It's
the year 2112. Earth has been invaded by the forces of evil. Battle the
invaders as you race from sector to sector on your motorcycle, searching for
survivors. Feel the incredible sense of speed as you zip past evil Quadrunners
and zigzag between treacherous rocks, oil spills and other obstacles on the
course. For a different challenge, create your own course in Design Mode, using
the various twists, turns and straightaways the game has to offer. Remember,
you are Earth's only hope-you are Mach Rider.

Yoshi(R) (NES, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Yoshi is an
action/puzzle game starring Mario's dinosaur buddy, Yoshi(TM), who has been
imprisoned in an egg. Now it's raining Goombas, Bloopers and Boo Buddies, and
you have to help Mario(TM) stop the airborne invasion. As the critters fall,
catch them on trays. Stack two of a kind and they both disappear, or capture
the whole bunch in between eggshells. When the eggshells match, out hatches
Yoshi and up goes your score. The action heats up as the characters fall faster
and faster. To save the day, switch and shuffle, and don't let your piles get
too high.

Air "Zonk" (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone - Mild Cartoon
Violence, 600 Wii Points): Air "Zonk" is a spin-off of the popular Bonk's
Adventure series. This side-scrolling shooter retains the same cartoonish style
of Bonk but is set in a cyberpunk future. The powered-up "Zonk" gathers his
friends to form Team Cool, and they set out to stop King Drool's plan to
conquer the world. Choose from three levels of difficulty and three Friend
Modes. Shoot King Drool's cyber-robots and avoid their attacks while collecting
the Air Bones to unleash a variety of unique attacks. Combine with a friend to
create an invincible hybrid form or blast enemies with a charged attack. Air
"Zonk" is filled with humor, made evident by the wacky theme song that plays
when you post a huge score or when your game is over.
