Nintendo Weekly Downloads for Nintendo Wii: Fenimore Fillmore & Samurai Showdown III

Here are the games available to download today on the Wii Shop Channel.

Fenimore Fillmore “The Westerner”
(1000 Nintendo Points)
Welcome to the West! Come and see the fastest cowboy in action. Visit a typical Western town with a grand saloon, a sheriff’s office and a bank. Meet the classic doctor, the powerful “master of the land,” an industrious pioneer and men and women who raised a great nation with their blood, sweat and tears. But there are things that cannot be helped, and one of them – very typical in the West – is the continuous fighting between farmers and cattle ranchers. While farmers used to win the sympathy of most people, cattle ranchers had more money, more men and more power. Only a cowboy as peculiar as Fenimore Fillmore could side with the farmers when the rest of the cowboys are paid by the merciless and sinister cattle rancher.

Samurai Showdown III
Original platform: NEOGEO
(900 Nintendo Points)
This is a fighting game released in 1995 as a sequel to the previous year’s release of SAMURAI SHOWDOWN II. Though this is the third installment in the series, the story takes place between the first and second installments. Players can choose from 12 samurai seeking to defeat Zankuro Minazuki. Along with minor upgrades from the last version – such as the ability to press buttons to fill your rage gauge and the ability to defend in midair – you can also select from slash and bust personality types for each character. Each type has its own set of special moves you can take advantage of, effectively doubling the amount of characters you can play.
