So says this. Info and cost below. No word on whether or not these are coming to Europe as well.

  • Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom (NES, 1 player, 500 Wii Points): We’d be more inclined to watch daytime television if network soap operas took a page from Tecmo and filled their stories with ninjas, demons, and trans-dimensional clones. While Ryu Hayabusa’s 8-bit escapades may be lacking the over-the-top gore found in the series’ more contemporary offerings, we doubt even the upcoming Ninja Gaiden II will have a ‘ship of doom.’
  • Phantasy Star II (Sega Genesis, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): While Phantasy Star is better known now for its multiplayer shenanigans and a story thin enough to be named Top Model, the franchise’s single player roots continue to be home to some of our most fondly-remembered role-playing from days when pixels were king. It’s true that some could argue that Phantasy Star IV tops out its brothers as the series’ best bet, but we’ll always have a special place in our hearts for Phantasy Star II and Nei’s cosmetically-challenged ears.
