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

What are you doing New Year’s Eve?

Thanks to the Wii™ Shop Channel, you’ve got some outrageous new options.
This week’s classic game additions offer brilliant fantasy and crackling
action to help you ring in ’08. So if you haven’t made any New Year’s
resolutions yet, allow us to suggest a few: pop more bubbles, battle more
medieval beasts and try to save the universe a little more often.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:

BUBBLE BOBBLE® (NES®, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points):
BUBBLE BOBBLE’s release in 1986 introduced the two bubble dragons, Bub and
Bob, and brand new play mechanics, with players defeating enemies by trapping
them in bubbles and then popping them. Although the puzzle-action game can be
beaten by clearing all 100 rounds, it also contains secret elements such as not
being able to get the “true ending” in single-player mode; hidden commands
that lead to secret rounds; and a ton of different items. These elements are
some of the game’s most memorable and important features. Each round even has
different air currents that are not visible, so bubbles rise in unpredictable
patterns. Aspects like forcing players to understand and utilize these
different patterns while playing help make this a revolutionary game that is
fun to play anytime.

Light Crusader™ (Genesis, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone—Animated Violence,
800 Wii Points): Each day, more good townspeople of Green Row have been
mysteriously disappearing, and beleaguered King Weeden summons the knight Sir
David to investigate. Armed with his wits and his sword, Sir David must find
the cause of this strange evil and save the citizens of Green Row before things
get any worse. Take the role of the brave knight in this action RPG and get to
the bottom of the mysteries of Green Row as you fight enemies, solve puzzles
and use your best combination of brains and brawn to save the kingdom.

TOP HUNTER (NEOGEO, 1-2 players, Rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and older—Cartoon
Violence, 900 Wii Points): Take on the role of either Roddy or Cathy, bounty
hunters in this side-scrolling action game set far in the future when humans
have colonized space. But all is not well: Space pirates called the Klaptons
are making their way through the galaxies, wiping out peaceful settlements
along their path. This disgraceful behavior leads to them having a price on
their heads, so now Roddy and Cathy must travel through four distinct worlds on
a mission to defeat their leader, Captain Klapton. Both characters have
retractable arms—used to grab enemies or other objects in the scenery—that
can then be thrown at others to destroy them. Also, be on the lookout for rings
or levers to pull, as this might reveal special bonuses. Further adding to the
mix, the game uses a unique system where the action happens on two planes, with
the player switching between them at will. Can you prove yourself worthy of the
Top Hunter name and help save the universe?
