News: Details on Nintendo's next additions to the Wii Shop Channel.



With Monday here once again, Nintendo has taken up their weekly task and added new games to the Wii Shop Channel. Two new titles made the cut this week: Gradius ReBirth is a WiiWare "remix" of some of the best levels of previous Gradius games while the Master System classic Alex Kidd: The Lost Stars has been added to the Virtual Console.

For more on both games, Nintendo has supplied more detailed summaries that can be found below.

WiiWare
Gradius ReBirth (Konami, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone-Mild Fantasy Violence, 1,000 Wii Points): Blast your way through levels filled with alien spaceships and otherworldly creatures in this retro side-scrolling shooter. Pick your weapons carefully and upgrade them to create a devastating arsenal of space-aged weapons that will aid you in your challenging mission. Players can post their high scores to worldwide leader boards via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and see where they rank against all the other Gradius ReBirth players. Test your skills with Gradius ReBirth and see if you have what it takes to beat this action-packed arcade shooter.



Virtual Console
Alex Kidd: The Lost Stars (Sega Master System, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone-Comic Mischief, Crude Humor, 500 Wii Points): In this platformer from the 1980s, help Alex Kidd in a race against time to find the 12 missing zodiac signs hidden in six challenging levels-including toyland, the robot factory and an outer-space level-all complete with crazy enemies.
