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: King’s Knight and Powerball.

King’s Knight (NES, 1 player, 500 Wii Points):

In the kingdom of Izander, the fair Princess Claire has been kidnapped by a foul and insidious dragon, and it is the mission of four brave fighters to save her. Through five thrilling, fast-action stages, our gallant heroes—a knight, a wizard, a monster and a thief—will take on an army of incredible enemies. You must help them reach their goal, as you are now part of the team that will fight to free the princess from her imprisonment. Keep your wits about you, plan your strategy and set off on an exciting adventure.

Rated E for Everyone — Mild Fantasy Violence.

Powerball (Sega Genesis, 800 Wii Points):

Eight different teams representing various nations are vying to become the Powerball champions, and you control one of the eight in your quest for the championship. A hybrid of games like rugby and football, Powerball is played on a 100-yard field. Try to score by either carrying the ball into your opponent’s end zone or kicking it into your opponent’s net for points. This one- or two-player game offers both exhibition and league play. Jump into a game of Powerball and try a brand new sport.

1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone — Mild Fantasy Violence.
