Nintendo has updated its North American WiiWare shop with two new remakes, PC shoot’em Protöthea
and Game Boy Color platformer/puzzler Toki Tori
. Nintendo has also added Neo Geo beat-‘em-up Ninja Combat
to its Virtual Console offerings.
(pictured) is a single-player, top-down scrolling shooter featuring 10 missions over four different worlds.
Originally released for PCs in 2005, the Wii remake includes a new 3D engine, Wii controls, and several added features. Protöthea’s
enemy AI is dynamic and adapts to player actions, promising a different experience with each playthrough.
, a remake of the Game Boy Color title by Two Tribes, has players collecting eggs and solving puzzles with a variety of weapons in over 70 levels. The 3D game uses the Wii Remote for a “unique control scheme” and allows a second player to draw hints on the screen.
Though the feature wasn’t specified, Toki Tori
also uses the Wii Message Board. Nintendo released the title in Europe and Australia on May 20th with the WiiWare service's launch
in those territories.
Originally released in 1990 on the Neo Geo, Ninja Combat
allows up to two players to battle a clan of rival Kage Ichizoku ninjas while trying to reach their home fortress, Ninja Tower. In addition to weapons and items available throughout the stages, defeated bosses will join the players as allies and playable characters.
All three games are now available for download on North America's Wii Shopping Channel, priced at 1000 Wii Points ($10) for Protöthea
and Toki Tori
, and 900 Wii Points ($9) for Sky Kid
