Three-In-One Collection of Classic Mad Dog McCree Arcade Games Debuts in August as the First Live-Action Shooter on WiiTM

Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced that Mad Dog McCree Gunslinger Pack for Wii™ will be released in the UK on the 28th August 2009, priced £24.99. When ruthless outlaw Mad Dog McCree goes on a rampage with a nasty pack of wanted fugitives in tow, they leave death and destruction in their wake. You are the only gun-slinging bounty hunter who can take him down in this three-in-one collection of classic arcade games that includes: Mad Dog McCree, Mad Dog 2: The Lost Gold and The Last Bounty Hunter.

Players use their Wii Remote™ or Wii Zapper™ accessory as the ultimate six-shooter in this Wild West adventure featuring live actors. Fast reflexes and precision shooting are the keys to survival when outlaws ambush from every angle and nail-biting showdowns are only a bullet away. As they pursue Mad Dog and four other wanted fugitives, players can choose from three different difficulty levels to hunt them alone or join forces with others in two multiplayer modes – Posse and Rebel. In Posse Mode, players work together with up to three friends in pursuit of a combined high score, while in Rebel Mode they work independently with up to four bounty hunters for individual high scores. Whether sharpshooting solo or with a posse, the Mad Dog McCree Gunslinger Pack lets players deliver their own brand of Wild West justice and walk away with their gun smokin’!

According to an unnamed scan which has surfaced on a Japanese forum, the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series is moving from the DS to WiiWare. A partial translation of the scan is now available and apparently, there are three titles in development: Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Keep Going! Blazing Adventure Squad, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Let’s Go! Stormy Adventure Squad!, and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Go For It! Light Adventure Squad. It would be wise to mark this as a rumor for now considering no one is aware of which magazine the scan is from. However, there have been a few Pokemon games on WiiWare thus far and bringing the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series to the service may freshen things up a bit.
