This week we\'re treated to King\'s Knight for the NES and Powerball for the Sege Genesis.
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:
KING'S KNIGHT (NES, 1 player, 500 Wii Points): In the kingdom of Izander, the fair Princess Claire has been kidnapped by a dragon, and it is the mission of four brave fighters to save her. Through five stages, our heroes - a knight, a wizard, a monster and a thief - will take on the dragon's army in hopes of saving the princess from her imprisonment.
POWERBALL (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points): Eight different teams representing various nations are vying to become the POWERBALL champions, and you control one of the eight. 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.
