The excitement is too much to bear

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.
