Nintendo gets romantic on the VC this week

It looks like Nintendo has finally hit the "Xbox Live Arcade" wall this week as they are releasing only one game this week and it's the SNES "classic" Romance of the Three Kingdoms.  I'm not sure why they are releasing only one game this week instead of three but remember there's no drought of Wii games, there's no drought of Wii games (if you say it enough times you might just believe it).


Wii-kly Update: New Classic Game Announced for Wii Shop Channel
 
    Today Nintendo adds a classic Super NES(R) game to the popular Wii(TM) 
video game system's Wii Shop Channel. The game goes live at 9 a.m. Pacific 
time. Nintendo adds new games to the channel every Monday. Wii owners with a 
high-speed Internet connection can redeem Wii Points(TM) to download the 
games. Wii Points can be purchased in the Wii Shop Channel or at retail 
outlets. This week's new game is:
 
    Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV: Wall of Fire(TM) (Super NES, 1-8 
players, 800 Wii Points): Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV is a tactical 
simulation game in which the player takes the role of a ruler seeking to unite 
China in the era of the three kingdoms of Wei, Wu and Shu. The role of the 
ruler is to command a range of officers with differing characteristics - some 
cunning strategists, others brave warriors - and strengthen the military might 
of his or her kingdom. Foreign policy, involving forming alliances with 
certain kingdoms and hatching plans to weaken others, will play a major role 
in this process. Once players have developed a powerful enough military, it 
will be time to expand their borders through military conquest. Ultimate 
victory will only be achieved once all 43 cities in China lie within a 
player's control.
