Wii Shop updated with Monkeys, Ghosts, Axes, Zombies

Nintendo Update: Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 3 joined by Ghost Mansion Party, Golden Axe, Zombies Ate My Neighbors; Sudoku, PictureBook Games arrive on DSi.

Telltale Games typically doesn't have much of a problem releasing new installments in its episodic adventure series at one-month intervals. However, Wii gamers have certainly noticed the nearly two-month span that has elapsed since the release of Chapter 2 in the developer's Tales of Monkey Island series, especially considering that the PC edition debuted at the end of September.

We'll get these Wii owners' doubloons yet!

Today, though, Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 3: Lair of the Leviathan is now available for download through Nintendo's WiiWare shop for 1,000 Wii points ($10). In Guybrush Threepwood's continuing quest for Elaine, the protagonist ventures into the guts of a "giant manatee," where he encounters lost explorer Coronado de Cava (relation to Francisco Vazquez de Coronado unknown), among other diverse characters.

Gameloft's Ghost Mansion Party joins Tales of Monkey Island on WiiWare this week, and it also costs 1,000 Wii points ($10). The minigame compilation sports a diverse set of activities for up to four players as they compete in a Halloween-themed board game. The arcade edition of Sega's Golden Axe and LucasArts' Zombies Ate My Neighbors are available for 900 Wii points ($9) and 800 Wii points ($8) through the Wii's Virtual Console.

On the DSi, Electronic Arts wades into the portable brain-training realm with Sudoku. The 200 DSi point ($2) title includes "hundreds" of Sudoku puzzles, with five difficulty levels that range from easy to insane. Nintendo's PictureBook Games: The Royal Bluff is available for 500 DSi points ($5) and features multiplayer-centric gameplay for up to four. In the game, players work to deduce the chip colors of opponents, across Tournament, Free Play, and DS Wireless Play modes.

Now we need a portable virtual console: Classic games from the Game & Watch, Gameboy, Virtual Boy, Gameboy Color, Gamegear, Gameboy Advance, and anything else there might be. Game & Watch games are about two for 200 points, or maybe three, while Gameboy games are about 300, Virtual Boy for 500, Gameboy Color for 800, Gamegear for 800, Gameboy Advance at least 1,200. Do that and I'll buy my first points card, all my DSi games were in the free points offer.

@QWERTYCommander Well, you may need to check the recent news because Goldeneye may be coming to the Wii in a remade form in 2010.

Zombies ate my neighbours was awesome, as was Golden Axe. B)

@deepflow2 Microsoft owns Rare, and Rare doesn't own the Goldeneye license anymore, so it would be impossible for those to appear.

Nice, Zombies Ate My Neighbors. Finding the secret Day of the Tentacle stage in that game was one of my favorite gaming experiences in my younger days.

we need more classics in the virtual console, what about TMNT4 turtles in time for the SNES

Games that the wii shop channel needs: Donkey Kong 64, Mario Party 1-3, Banjo-Kazooie 1 and 2, GoldenEye 007, EarthBound, Final Fantasy 4 and 6 (2, 3, and 5, could be there too), Chrono Trigger, and more. I don't care if Microsoft owns Rare! Wii's got Star Fox 64 and Donkey Kong Country 1-3, so we need more of these classic Rare games

That update for the Wii shop channel only. Is it safe? I don't want to brick my Wii!

Yeah!! Zombies Ate My Neighbors! I remember playing that game for the first time. The main menu on the game is all twisted up like a hypnotic wheel and makes the title look like "Neighbors Ate My Zombies". Wicked game either way.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors would be about the only reason I might ever consider owning a Wii

Ryguy4738, except for Mario Vs. DK 3 I agree with you, they need a quality DSiware game (Flipnotes was quality but not a game).

Agreed on 'Zombies Ate my Neighbors' being a classic. 'Ghost Mansion' sounded interesting... until I saw the word 'Party' after it.
