'King's Knight' from the NES and 'Powerball' from the Sega Genesis era are the latest titles to hit the Wii as downloadable classics. Its hard to top the aptly titled "Wii-kly Update" PR copy, so we'll post it verbatum.
KING’S KNIGHT™ 500 Wii Points:
(NES®, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone — Mild Fantasy Violence)
In the kingdom of Izander, the fair Princess Claire has been
kidnapped by a foul and insidious dragon, and it is the mission of four brave
fighters to save her. Through five thrilling, fast-action stages, our gallant
heroes—a knight, a wizard, a monster and a thief—will take on an army of
incredible enemies. You must help them reach their goal, as you are now part
of the team that will fight to free the princess from her imprisonment. Keep
your wits about you, plan your strategy and set off on an exciting adventure.
POWERBALL™ 800 Wii Points:
(Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone — Mild Fantasy Violence)
Eight different teams representing various nations
are vying to become the POWERBALL champions, and you control one of the eight
in your quest for the championship. A hybrid of games like rugby and football,
POWERBALL is played on a 100-yard field. Try to score by either carrying the
ball into your opponent’s end zone or kicking it into your opponent’s net for
points. This one- or two-player game offers both exhibition and league play.
Jump into a game of POWERBALL and try a brand new sport.
