The themes just keep on coming, and this time around, it’s all about Dad. To celebrate Father’s Day, Nintendo has released three new games to the Virtual Console all about things that Dads supposedly like. Why not three games that Dads might have played back in the day? I don’t know, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy what you’re getting this week, because it’s not bad.
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 U.S.A., the U.K., 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,
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.
NES Open Tournament Golf has been available for download in Europe since May. World Sports Competition has been on the European Virtual Console since the beginning of June. Bloody Wolf has been on the Japanese Virtual Console since April.
All three games are available on the Wii Shop Channel as of 12 p.m. Eastern, 9 a.m. Pacific. As always, check back in next week for the latest Wii Virtual Console releases!Powered by Sidelines
