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

It's sci-fi/fantasy week on the Virtual Console(TM), and you know what that
means. The Cybernators are deadly, the aliens are ruthless and the monsters are
... cute. It's a collection of three classic action games designed to keep
your blood boiling as the weather gets cooler and the days get shorter. Virtual
Console: your winter security blanket.Three new classic games go live at 9 a.m.
Pacific time. Nintendo adds new games to the Wii(TM) 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:

Cybernator (SNES(R), 1 player, rated E 10+ for Everyone 10 and Older - Mild
Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): It is the near future. Resources are
dwindling, and the major powers of the world are in dispute over territory.
Pilot the Cybernator G5-E for the 95th brigade of the mechanized marines and
throw yourself into the war. Get briefed before each mission to confirm your
targets, and then do your best to clear each of the seven stages, freely using
the suit's equipped tools and four types of weaponry. By collecting the "power
chips" left by defeated enemies, it is also possible to reinforce each weapon
up to a maximum of three levels. It is left to your judgment as to whether to
reinforce a specific weapon or to power up all weapons simultaneously, adding a
bit of strategy to the nonstop action. The powerful background music,
military-like atmosphere (look for bullet marks on the walls and the strained
communication during combat) and intense story development combine to give the
world of Cybernator a gritty, sci-fi feel that you won't soon forget.

Alien Storm(TM) (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, rated E 10+ for Everyone 10 and
Older - Mild Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): Shape-shifting aliens have
infiltrated the city, creating chaos and panic! Fortunately, a trio of heroes
called the Alien Busters has agreed to wipe out the invading creatures. The
members of the team wield their own special attacks, and they unload a world of
hurt on the Martian menaces from the city streets to the mother ship. Gordon, a
tough guy with a bazooka, has a special gunship attack, while Karla has a
flamethrower for alien crisping, though she prefers to use her special
ballistic-missile attack. Finally, Slammer the robot can self-destruct at will
and attacks the intruders with an electric whip and other devices. Take the
aliens by storm and save your city.

Monster Lair (TurboGrafx16 CD-ROM, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone - Mild
Cartoon Violence, 800 Wii Points): Join young Adam and Laura as they embark on
a fantastic adventure in this comical action/shooting game. Featuring beautiful
music brought to life by the power of the CD-ROM, the game consists of 14
rounds packed with cute monster enemies. Players can either play alone as Adam
(or play with a friend controlling Laura) as they battle their way through
round after round. The first half of each round is the action scene, where
players must avoid obstacles and pits. Use your Power Boost weapons against
enemies and restore your Life Force with food as you head for the gate at the
end. The second half is the exhilarating shooting scene, where players must
shoot down flying enemies. Take out the boss at the end to clear the round and
move to the next one.
