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

This week it’s All About Evil. The “Month of Metroid” continues, giving
you the chance to contend with evil, flying, brain-like Metroids that latch
onto your head and suck your life forces. Nobody needs that, especially not
first thing Monday morning. Luckily, you’ve got a sweet suit and some nice
weapons to help you navigate through this amazing classic game. And if that’s
not enough, you also have the option of dealing with bad guys named Dark Sol
and Zenzombie. You just know when their parents named them that, they were
asking for trouble.Three new classic games go live at 9 a.m. Pacific time.
Nintendo adds new games to the Wii Shop Channel every Monday. Wii™ owners
with a high-speed Internet connection can redeem Wii Points™ to download the
games. Wii Points can be purchased in the Wii Shop Channel or at retail
outlets. This week’s new games are:

Metroid® (NES®, 1 player, rated E for Everyone – Mild Fantasy Violence, 500
Wii Points): The first installment of the immensely successful Metroid series
introduces us to the hideous title creatures and the slick, cybernetic bounty
hunter Samus Aran. As Samus, your mission is to penetrate the space pirates’
home planet, Zebes, and keep them from destroying the galaxy with the dangerous
life forms known as Metroids. Metroid has all the high-tech weaponry, creepy
tunnels and crawly alien creatures that anyone could ask for. With its deep and
complex game play, excellent music and a rare sense of setting, it establishes
a frightening ambience that will haunt and entertain you for a very long time.

Shining in the Darkness™ (Sega Genesis, 1 player, rated E for Everyone –
Mild Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): Dark Sol has vowed to reign over the
enchanted Kingdom of Thornwood, and only you can stop him. Find the powerful
Arms of Light and battle the deadly beasts that keep your people desperate and
starving in this epic journey for peace. Roaming the dark Labyrinth, you’ll
seek out enemies and collect weapons, all of which will help you pass the test
of the Ancients and become a shining knight. Get into the adventure with a
stunning 3-D perspective, amazing cinematic views and fast-paced scrolling.
You’ll move from battle to battle, solving puzzles and discovering secret
items in this engrossing struggle between good and evil.

Cratermaze™ (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, rated E for Everyone – Comic Mischief,
600 Wii Points): Cratermaze is a comical action game set in a parallel world.
While on a trip through time, you and your friends are confronted by Kublai,
henchman to the evil Zenzombie. He traps your friends at separate points in the
space-time continuum. Now you must fight your way through 60 rounds of mazes to
save your friends. Dinosaurs, ninjas, robots and other enemies lurk within the
mazes, spanning from primitive times to the future. Escape the enemies by
digging holes to trap them in and then filling the holes to finish them off.
Collect all the chests within the time limit to get the key and exit to the
next round. With special items such as shovels and spring platforms, Cratermaze
takes its game play to new heights, making for an unforgettable gaming experience.
