Virtual Console is perhaps the most compelling reason for hardcore gamers to own a Wii. Well, Nintendo just made the service even better.
At the tail-end of Iwata's GDC keynote, it was announced that Virtual Console Arcade has been launched. What VCA will do is bring classic arcade (not console) versions of games to your living room.
As of right now, players can purchase four titles from VCA, including Mappy, Star Force, The Tower of Druaga, and Gaplus (aka Galaga 3). These titles can be picked up for 500 Wii Points a piece except for Gaplus, which will run you 600 Wii Points.
Several other titles have already been confirmed, including Space Harrier, Solvalou, Emeraldia, and The Return of Ishtar.
