Fans of the Wild West may look enviously upon the titles released on HD consoles in the past year, notably Red Dead Redemption and Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, and wish for their own rootin' tootin' adventure to match. Well, they'll be waiting a long time yet, but here comes a more sedate cowboy adventure in the form of The Westerner, coming to WiiWare on Monday.

A point-and-click game with a twist, developer Revistronic claims The Westerner features some 40 hours of gameplay and a "very amazing script, full of twists, humour and action." It all sounds very promising, and with a release next Monday we'll soon be able to rustle up some WiiWare cowboy action.
