Cubello, Cue Sports, Strong Bad Episode 3, and Yummy Yummy Cooking Jam make for an unusually substantial update to the PAL Wii Shop Channel.

This week's update to the PAL Wii Shop Channel brings four new WiiWare games for gamers across Europe and Australia to download:

CUBELLO (600 Wii Points) is the first in the series of Art Style games to launch in PAL territories, with ROTOHEX and ORBIENT set to release over the next two weeks. This visually minimalist puzzler involves using the Wii Remote pointer to fire cubes at a spinning structure in order to match colours in a mix of skill and strategy.

CueSports – Snooker Vs Billiards (800 Wii Points) is a collection of table game simulations from Hudson, including Snooker, 9 Ball, 8 Ball, and Rotation. Multiplayer options allow for four player local competition as well as worldwide online play via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

Strong Bad 3: Baddest of the Bands (1000 Wii Points) is the third installment in the episodic comedy adventure Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People from Telltale Games. Short on funds, Strong Bad arranges a battle of the bands to raise some quick cash, with predictably unintended consequences.

Yummy Yummy Cooking Jam (1000 Wii Points) puts you to work in a series of restaurants, using the Wii Remote to hand out menus, take orders, prepare the food itself, and even swat away some bothersome flies. Also, two players can indulge in bouts of competitive cooking to see who can earn the biggest tips from the patrons.
