Wii Shop Channel Adds Duo of Classic Titles

by Rainier on March 17, 2008 @ 8:52 a.m. PDT

Today Nintendo added yet another two classic games to the Wii's Shop Channel. Wii owners with a high-speed Internet access can redeem Wii Points to download the following titles: Spelunker and Super R-Type.

Spelunker (NES, 500 Wii Points):

Wander through miles of uncharted caves in search of the legendary underground pyramid and its vast treasures. To complete your adventure, you will swing from ropes and ladders, run across unstable terrain and down ravines, operate elevators, mining carts and rafts. You will collect keys, bombs, flares, jewels, sacks of gold coins and other valuable items as you navigate the hazardous terrain. But beware of the scalding steam vents, poisonous bats and the avenging spirits of dead spelunkers that lurk in every corner of this massive underground labyrinth.

1 player, Rated E for Everyone.

SUPER R-TYPE (SNES, 1 player, 800 Wii Points):

A galactic battle begins. The BYDO Empire of mutant extraterrestrials is back with evil intent and awesome power. Now the evil empire is poised to launch a new attack on Earth. Only the revolutionary R-9, the planet’s most advanced form of defense, stands between these monsters and doom. Fight through seven challenging stages—picking up power-up items as you progress—on the way to each stage’s memorable boss. Is the BYDO Empire invincible? You’ll need lightning reflexes, intuitive moves and a big dose of cosmic luck to hold your own. Better prepare yourself, because the mutants “R” ready for you.

Rated E for Everyone — Mild Fantasy Violence.
