Wii Shop Channel Gets One Classic And Two Wiiware Titles

by Rainier on Dec. 29, 2008 @ 3:50 p.m. PST

Nintendo added a classic and two WiiWare title to the Wii's Shop Channel. Wii owners with online access can redeem Wii Points to download: Maboshi’s Arcade (Wiiware), Cue Sport: Pool Revolution (Wiiware), and Zoda’s Revenge: StarTropics II (VC).

WiiWare

Maboshi’s Arcade (Nintendo, 800 Wii Points):

Featuring three distinct modes and simultaneous play across three game windows, the constantly changing environment of Maboshi’s Arcade creates an atmosphere unlike any other. Each of the modes is based on one of three familiar shapes (circle, stick and square) and offers the same goal: score a million points. Use the intuitive controls to bash enemies in Circle mode, weave your way through Stick mode or burn a path around obstacles in Square mode—all while dealing with power-up items and keeping watch on which effects the other game windows may have on your own. Also featuring Mii characters, action replays that you can send to your Wii Friends via WiiConnect24, and the ability to download a version to a Nintendo DS, you may never want to leave this arcade.

1-3 players, Rated E for Everyone.

Cue Sport: Pool Revolution (Hudson Entertainment, 500 Wii Points):

Grab your Wii Remote controller and take a shot at this virtual billiard game. Enjoy match-ups, playing classic favorites such as 9 Ball, 8 Ball, Rotation and Snooker, as well as walk-through trick shots in Puzzle mode. Connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (Nintendo WFC) to go head-to-head with your friends, or even hustle opponents across the world in Nintendo WFC match-ups. This game offers two types of controls, allowing you to virtually strike the cue ball with your Wii Remote controller or use the buttons to adjust the strength of your shot and then strike. Hone your skills in Practice mode, learning all the cool techniques you need to be a true hustler. Use the edit feature to create your own challenge and nail the trick shot you’ve always dreamed of sinking. Pull off an amazing shot and show everyone who’s the biggest shark in the pool.

1-4 players, Rated E for Everyone.

Virtual Console

Zoda’s Revenge: StarTropics II (NES, 500 Wii Points):

Take on the role of Mike Jones, intrepid hero of the StarTropics universe, and once again battle the evil alien Zoda to control the fate of the Argonian people. In this journey, the island hopping of Mike’s original adventure gives way to traveling through time and visiting locations around the world. And you never know what famous historical figures may appear along the way, giving Mike helpful advice or useful items. Luckily, Mike also has a wider range of weapons and improved play control on his side, so he may yet stand a chance against Zoda. Can you help Mike stand the test of time and save the world again?

1 player, Rated E for Everyone—Mild Cartoon Violence.
