Two New Classic Games Added to Wii Shop Channel

Helping out your friends is often as easy as a ride to the airport or a
kind word of advice. But when they fall victim to dastardly kidnappers,
things get a little more complicated. Step up and find out what it takes
to rescue your imperiled pals in the latest additions to the Wii™ Shop
Channel. Both of these classic titles feature distinctive rescue-driven
storylines and villain-busting action to help bring out your inner hero.
Isn’t that what friends are for?

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

River City Ransom™ (NES®, 1-2 players, Rated E10+ for Everyone
10 and Older—Mild Suggestive Themes and Mild Violence, 500 Wii Points):
River City Ransom takes place in River City, where our heroes, Alex and
Ryan, find a letter on Ryan’s locker from a guy named Slick. The
letter says that Ryan’s girlfriend, Cyndi, has been kidnapped, and Slick
has taken River City hostage with the help of countless gangs and evil
bosses. It’s up to our heroes to save poor Cyndi and free River City from
the clutches of Slick and his underlings. You can play as Alex and take on
the challenge alone or battle with two players simultaneously as Alex
and Ryan. Kick and punch to fight your way through gang members, evil
bosses and other goons, or use a variety of weapons including a chain
whip, brass knuckles and a tire, to name a few. Raise your stats by eating
right, and gain new techniques by reading books. With your fighting
prowess and never-ending spirit, the bad guys won’t know what hit them.


Phantasy Star™ III Generations of Doom (Sega Genesis, 1 player,
Rated E for Everyone—Mild Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): As Rhys, the
crown prince of the Orakian kingdom of Landen, you are engaged to be
married to Maia, a woman from a rival kingdom. But Maia is kidnapped on
your wedding day, setting you on a quest filled with twists and turns that
will reintroduce you to people and places from previous Phantasy Star
games. This epic spans several generations of characters, and your choices
will dramatically impact the way the story unfolds, which makes it a great
game to play all the way through more than once. In Phantasy Star III,
things aren’t always what they seem—check it out and watch the mysteries
unfold.
