Nintendo has a little bit of a sports theme this week as they are releasing NES Open Tournament Golf (500 points), World Sports Competition (600 points), and Bloody Wolf (600 points).


Father’s Day is over, but the Wii Shop Channel has plenty of competitive games 
to keep pop hopping. Whether dad’s a golf fan, an overall sports enthusiast or
just a guy who likes to rescue prisoners with his special forces buddies, this
is the week for him.

Three new classic games go live at 9 a.m. Pacific time. Nintendo adds new
games to the Wii Shop Channel 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:

NES Open Tournament Golf™ (NES®, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii
Points): We all knew that Mario™ was a top-notch plumber, but did you know
that he could also be a world-class golfer? You can challenge another player
in Stroke, Match and Tournament modes. Play on three fantasy courses in the
USA, the UK and Japan and try to win a million dollars. Make sure you keep an
eye on the wind and distance to the hole before selecting your club, or else
you’ll be racking up some high scores – which is exactly what you don’t want
to do in this game. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced golfer, NES
Open Tournament Golf is perfect for those days when you just can’t get to the
local golf course.

World Sports Competition (TurboGrafx-16, 1-5 players, Rated E for Everyone,
600 Wii Points): Play through a total of 18 Olympic events in this
action/sports title. Players compete in six categories of events that include
shooting, archery, rowing, swimming and track and field. The game features
Olympics mode, where you play all the events over the course of a few days,
and Training mode, where you can choose individual events to play. After
practicing in Training mode, go for the gold in Olympics mode and break world
records. Depending on your play time and ability, you can enjoy the game a
number of different ways. Gather friends and play in competitions with up to
five players to get even more out of this great game.

Bloody Wolf (TurboGrafx-16, 1 player, Rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older –
Animated Blood, Violence, 600 Wii Points): Enter alone, deep into enemy
territory to rescue the kidnapped President in this overhead-view action
shooter. Take on the role of a commando in a Special Forces team and face your
enemies with an onslaught of weapons, including machine guns and grenades.
Earn valuable information, weapons and items by rescuing POWs. Fight your way
to the end of each stage and defeat the boss by effectively using your weapons
and equipment. This port of the insanely popular arcade game features refined
graphics, story and cut-scenes, making this action game a must-have. This new
and enhanced version includes the never-been-told second half of the story
that was left out of the arcade version.
