Having run out of game consoles, Nintendo today launched Virtual Console Arcade, with a variety of classic arcade titles already available for purchase from the Wii Shop Channel.

As we speak, Gaplus, Star Force, The Tower of Druaga, Mappy and more with Space Harrier are all available to download and play on your Wii, priced at 500 Wii points a piece with the exception of Gaplus, where the plus apparently translates to 100 more Wii points. Space Harrier and Solvalou named as two additional titles coming soon.


As McWhertor pointed out during the liveblog of Nintendo's keynote, that means Sega, Namco and Taito has all signed on to provide their arcade hits to Wii owners. What games would you like to see show up on the Virtual Console Arcade?
