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

Autumn leaves aren’t the only reason your October is about to get a lot more
colorful. The latest additions to the Wii Shop Channel deliver a brisk,
eye-pleasing mix of classic gameplay for fall. Dive into this pile of vibrant
titles for a timeless dose of fun and fantasy.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:

Lunar Pool® (NES®, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Lunar
Pool takes the historical game of billiards and reinvents it with a unique and
futuristic flair. The rules are simple: All you need to do is use your cue
stick to hit the white cue ball, causing it to hit the other numbered balls and
make them go into the pockets. You can enjoy nearly unlimited game play with 30
tables, two different ball arrangements, and the ability to change the degree
of friction on the table. You can play against a computer or another human
player, so try challenging someone once you’ve got the hang of the game.

Ninja JaJaMaru-kun® (NES®, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 600 Wii
Points): Take on the role of a ninja called JaJaMaru and rescue the captured
Princess Sakura from the evil Namazu Dayuu in this action-packed game,
previously unreleased outside of Japan. JaJaMaru must use his throwing stars to
defeat the monsters lurking in each of Dayuu’s many hideouts. JaJaMaru has to
be careful though, as each monster has its own unique weapon and method of
attacking. The only way for him to advance is to break the floor bricks above
him and move up and down between the levels of each round, defeating monsters
as he goes. To help him, broken bricks sometimes reveal items that JaJaMaru can
use to his advantage, possibly leading to the ultimate power-up: a ride on
Gamapakun, the giant frog. Throw in some bonus stages and you’ve got a game
with a style all its own.

Golden Axe™ III (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, Rated E10+ for Fantasy Violence,
800 Wii Points): The once-peaceful kingdom so familiar to fans of the original
Golden Axe is under threat once again. The Prince of Darkness has stolen the
invaluable Golden Axe, taken over the kingdom and rendered its warriors
harmless with an evil curse. One warrior breaks free from the curse and must
defeat the prince and regain the Golden Axe to save the kingdom. In this one-
or two-player action game, play as a giant, a panther or a sword-wielding human
and fight your way to victory once again.
