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

I's a week of fun-filled firsts at the Wii(TM) Shop Channel. Each of the
latest game
offerings represents the first title in a memorable series that has
influenced many
subsequent titles over the years. Whether you prefer high-speed drives or
side-scrolling
adventures, it's clear that these classic games have lasting appeal. What's
more,
Wonder Boy is the first-ever Sega Master System title to be made available
via Virtual Console.

Nintendo adds new games to the Wii Shop Channel at 9 a.m. Pacific time 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:

Cruis'n USA(TM) (Nintendo 64(R), 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 1,000 Wii
Points):
Ever felt like driving to the Golden Gate Bridge, Mount Rushmore and the
White House
in one day? Well then, gear up to put your racing skills to the test in a
frantic trip across
the United States, following a route that you won't find on any map. Whether
it's the
rolling hills of Appalachia, the flowing cornfields of Iowa or the crowded
tunnels below
Chicago, you'll find yourself too focused on the intense racing action to
worry about the
scenery. Get started by picking from a garage full of cars to find the one
that best suits
your style--if you're good enough, you'll even find a few hidden ones to
round out your
selection. Then choose one of three different playing perspectives and get
ready to hang
on tight. With five difficulty levels, the ability to remove traffic or other
racers, and
two-player simultaneous racing, it's enough to make you forget all about
finding that next rest
stop. Just watch out for the cows, OK?

Wonder Boy (Sega Master System, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone--Comic
Mischief,
500 Wii Points): As Tom-Tom the Wonder Boy, it's up to you to rescue your
girlfriend
Tanya from the vile clutches of the monster that has kidnapped her. To do so,
you must
navigate a series of worlds in a race against time to reach your goal. Along
the way, you'll battle foes and collect fruit that will add to the amount of time you
have to
complete your mission. You can also receive helpful power-ups from various
eggs, but
make sure to avoid the bad eggs and poisonous mushrooms that sap your
precious vitality. Find the magic doll in each level to open up hidden areas, and makeit to the very
end of your journey to rescue your one true love.
