Nintendo adds new and classic 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:
Sandy Beach (Konami, 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points): Enjoy a day at Sandy Beach as you build sand castles. You can work peacefully on your sand castle or enter into a battle with invading crabs in Crab Battle mode. Players will strategically build their sand castle and use cannons to defend it against an army of crabs. After successfully defending your sand castle, discover beach treasures and additional cannons with your metal detector to customize your castle.
Kirby's Dream Land 3 (Super NES, 1-2 players, Wii Points): Kirby must once again save the day when the mischievous King Dedede starts causing trouble. Kirby must travel through an assortment of levels, battling an array of enemies (both new and familiar) determined to stop him from completing his mission. Always armed with his trusty ability to swallow enemies and gain special attacks, Kirby can also unite with some of his animal friends and make use of their particular talents.
