Wii-kly Update: Three New Classic Games Added to Wii Shop Channel
When you take on a challenge, it’s helpful to know your goal. Are you trying
to bury an opponent under colorful boulders, defeat the evil Syndicate’s
lifelike robots or rescue a princess? Maybe all three? Well, you can rest easy
knowing that this week’s diverse selection from the Wii Shop Channel is here
to help you take care of all the above.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:

Kirby’s Avalanche™ (Super NES®, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone, 800 Wii
Points): Everyone’s favorite round, pink hero takes a break from swallowing
his enemies to put your brain to work in this fast-paced puzzle game. Players
take control of Kirby and match wits with well-known enemies from the Kirby
series (including his archrival, King Dedede) in an effort to win the First
Annual Dream Land Avalanche Competition. The simple-but-addictive game play
revolves around brightly colored blobs and boulders. When the right amount of
matching blobs are stacked, they explode and rain down on your opponent’s
field of play. Repeat this until your screen is clear to move on to the next
round. But be careful—the farther you advance, the faster the blobs fall and
the smarter the opponents get. Are you good enough to help Kirby become the
avalanche king?

Streets of Rage™ 3 (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, rated E 10+ for Everyone 10
and Older – Violence, 800 Wii Points): Just when you thought the world was
safe from the Syndicate and its shady leader, Mr. X, they have returned to
torment the city once again. Mr. X has developed lifelike robots to take the
place of various city officials so he can be in complete control. Now it’s up
to our old heroes Axel, Skate and Blaze to stop the threat with their amazing
fighting skills. With more weapons and combat moves, as well as secret
characters and various endings, this return to the streets is one you won’t
want to miss.

LEGEND OF HERO TONMA (TurboGrafx16, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone – Mild
Cartoon Violence, 600 Wii Points): LEGEND OF HERO TONMA is an action game that
puts players in control of the magic-user Tonma, whose role – as was typical
for game heroes of the day – is to travel to another world and save the
princess. Fight your way through seven stages using Tonma’s jump ability and
shot power. Collect power-ups and barriers to grow in strength and pummel your
enemies. Bring that strength to the end of each stage to face off against and
defeat the menacing bosses that aim to keep you from the princess. This
well-detailed game’s comic visuals and feel will have players wanting to come
back for more frantic and exciting action.
