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

Wii-kly Update: Three New Classic Games Added to Wii Shop ChannelLet’s hope
you all survived the long holiday weekend. With all the eating, traveling and
family fun, isn’t it time to do something just for you? So take a few minutes
and do a little shopping from the comfort of your couch, away from the chaos of
the malls. This week you can get into a game of hoops, do a little faux
gambling or head out to sea with your favorite dolphin friend.

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:

DOUBLE DRIBBLE™ (NES®, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points):
DOUBLE DRIBBLE, the first 5-on-5, full-court home basketball game, is pure
hoops action at its finest. While still a surprisingly accurate basketball game
for its time, the frantic action keeps you on your toes as your players run
from one end of the court to the other. Choose from a handful of teams and
multiple levels of difficulty as you take on the computer alone or challenge a
friend and see who has the better skills. Take the ball and sink shots from
locations all over the court, or get in your opponent’s face and do your best
to block the shot. Better yet, drive the lane and rock the rim to see one of
the game’s trademark slam-dunk cut scenes. He shoots, he scores!

Vegas Stakes™ (Super NES®, 1-4 players, rated E for Everyone – Simulated
Gambling, 800 Wii Points): Feel like taking a road trip to Las Vegas? Let your
inner high roller go wild as you try your luck at five different
games—blackjack, slots, poker, craps and roulette. Start with only $1,000 in
your pocket and play your way through five casinos, each with a different theme
and varying limits. But no one wants to gamble alone, right? Not a problem, as
you’ll be able to choose one of four friends to tag along and offer advice
when you need it. Further enhancing the experience is the fact that you’ll be
presented with a slew of interactions with random casino patrons. Best be
careful, though—your choices in these situations could either get you closer
to the millions of dollars you’re after or cost you a pile of that
hard-earned cash. Roll the dice, spin the wheel, hit or stand—do whatever it
takes to stake your claim in Vegas and beat the house!

Ecco Jr.™ (Sega Genesis, 1 player, rated E for Everyone, 800 Wii Points): The
aquatic adventures of Ecco come to life for a younger generation of gamers.
Perfect for kids, Ecco Jr. finds our young hero heading out to sea with a
variety of tasks he must perform in order to get there. Along with his friends
Tara the baby orca and Kitnee the young Atlantic dolphin, Ecco Jr. will
interact with sea lions, sea horses and other aquatic life as he makes his
journey to the Big Blue. Introduce your kids to the classic series of Ecco the
Dolphin titles by downloading Ecco Jr. today.
