KIRBY ADDS HIS UNIQUE TWIST TO ONE OF THE WORLD'S BEST KNOWN SPORTS

29th June, 2007- This week Virtual Console has gone a little pink as iconic Nintendo hero Kirby pops onto Wii in the quirky golf title Kirby’s Dream Course™. Gone are the peaceful greens that golf fans normally know; in their place are devious obstacles, traps and enemies. In this 1995 Super Nintendo classic, Kirby assumes the role of the ball, soaring through the air and rolling across the courses. Players must use our pink hero and his special powers to smash enemies out of the way around 64 colourful courses before sinking himself to complete each hole. Kirby’s Dream Course™ is available now for 800 Wii Points.

Also available this week is the 1990 Turbografx action title Bloody Wolf™. Players assume the role of a special-forces commando as they go deep behind enemy lines to rescue the kidnapped President. With eight scenes to overcome, including one not featured in the arcade game each with its own challenging boss, this title will really put your skills to the test. Bloody Wolf™ is available now for 600 Wii Points.

These great games join the list of over 103 classic titles already available for the Virtual Console in Europe.
