August 4th Wii Shop Channel Update

This week was a very small release for the VC and WiiWare games. Nintendo pushes the updates at 9 A.M. PST every monday, just incase you didn’t know or were wondering. I know it gets hard to keep track of what is released!


Wild West Guns (Gameloft, 1-2 players, Rated T for Teen—Violence, 1,000 Wii Points): Draw
your revolver to see if you’re the fastest gun in the West. Adjust your
speed and precision as targets or enemies appear in front of you. Point
and shoot to earn more points. You can aim at anything, so be sure to
explore the environment for elements that will earn you more shooting
points. Identify your enemies among the characters you encounter, but
don’t shoot at innocent citizens. Take part in an Old West-style train
attack, or challenge your skills in a variety of increasingly difficult
shooting challenges in other beautiful, classic and lively Western
environments. As you progress through challenges, you’ll earn medals
and rewards, making for nonstop, addictive action. Play in a two-player
multiplayer mode where you and your partner can combine points, or play
against each other to find out who’s the fastest gun in the West.

Virtual Console

Sonic The Hedgehog™ (Sega Master System, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Based on the original Sega Genesis version, Sonic The Hedgehog was
re-created as the first Sonic game for the Sega Master System. Not just
a straight port, this version includes new stages, bosses, some
different zones and a level map. The most noticeable difference,
however, is that the Chaos Emeralds have to be found within certain
stages other than the Special Stages. Dash through six Zones (including
special zones that were only available for the Sega Master System
version) and face Dr. Eggman (a.k.a. Dr. Robotnik) at the end of every

SPLATTERHOUSE™ 2 (Sega Genesis, 1 player, Rated M for Mature—Blood and Gore, Violence, 800 Wii Points): SPLATTERHOUSE 2 is the sequel to SPLATTERHOUSE, released only on the
Sega Genesis. A few months after escaping from the first mansion in
SPLATTERHOUSE, the main character, Rick, once again encounters the
Terror Mask and must use its powers to rescue his beloved Jennifer.
Rick will need to punch, slash, smash and even chainsaw his way through
a haunted mansion against unspeakable horrors and terrifying bosses to
make it out alive.
