Summer has blown by pretty fast, meaning that it’ll soon be back to school, colder temperatures, and not being able to go swimming in the pool or have a cookout during the middle of the week. But don’t get too down; there’s still plenty of time to have fun, and the Virtual Console brings us a couple new games this week that will certainly help.

This week’s new games are:

Kirby’s Dream Course (Super NES, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 800 Wii Points): Step up to the tee for the wackiest golf game of your life. This one- or two-player game features a floating golf course in the sky. High above Dream Land, players can pitch and putt the ever-popular puff ball, Kirby, through a maze of three-dimensional obstacles on a zany checkerboard course. Players must aim for the multitude of enemies that are spread throughout each fairway. Kirby must hit all the enemies to make them disappear, and the last one becomes the hole. Sink Kirby into the hole to advance to the next stage and clear all 8 courses – 64 holes in all.

Devil’s Crush (TurboGrafx16, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone – Animated Blood, Mild Fantasy Violence, 600 Wii Points): Devil’s Crush is the exciting sequel to the hit pinball game Alien Crush and features even smoother ball movement and enhanced special effects. Shoot the ball onto the board with the Devil Shooter, then use flippers and nudging to keep it in play and rack up a high score. Complete certain conditions to play up to six different bonus stages. Get a “Perfect Clear” on those to earn a huge amount of points. The game’s ominous theme is enhanced by its enemies: wandering skeleton knights, sorcerers and even a giant face that changes from a goddess to a sinister serpent.

Shining Force (Sega Genesis, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone – Mild Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): In ages long forgotten, Light fought Darkness for control of the world. Finally, the Ancients defeated the evil ruler of the dark forces known as Dark Dragon and cast him into another dimension, though he vowed to return in 1,000 years. As time passed, all memory of Dark Dragon was buried, and the land of Rune enjoyed 10 centuries of peace. Yet, as promised, the dark ruler returned, along with hordes of evil creatures that ravaged the land. As chaos erupted, several strongholds of Good still held out, awaiting a hero who could wield the Powers of Light.

Kirby’s Dream Course debuted on the Japanese Virtual Console in April, and debuted on the European Virtual Console in June. Devil’s Crush has been downloadable on the Japanese Virtual Console since June, but has not been released on the European Virtual Console. Shining Force appeared on the Japanese Virtual Console earlier this month, but like Devil’s Crush, it has not been released on the European Virtual Console. These three new titles can be downloaded off the Wii Shop Channel starting at 12 p.m. Eastern/9 a.m. Pacific.
