Virtual Console Arcade – Wii

March 25, 2009 by · Comments Off on Virtual Console Arcade – Wii 

25th March 2009 – Say hello to Virtual Console Arcade – our new addition to the Virtual Console family of retro gaming systems! Inserting coins is now a thing of the past, as classic arcade games become available to download through the Wii Shop Channel, starting with Gaplus, Mappy, The Tower of Druaga and STARFORCE!


Each game features virtual credits that you can add at will. In some games you can also access a special menu to change settings such as game difficulty or number of lives.

Our Virtual Console Arcade line-up begins with four favourites from Namco Bandai and Tecmo (Gaplus, Mappy, The Tower of Druaga and STARFORCE) and other big-name publishers will also be bringing their wares to the Wii Shop Channel in the future, so watch this space!

GAPLUS® (NAMCO BANDAI, 500 Wii Points):

Remember the timeless classic, Galaga? Say hello to its successor, as the arcade version of Gaplus hits Virtual Console!

As before, you command a lone fighter ship, facing down hordes of invading aliens. Their mission: to take over your world. Your mission: to stop them at all costs. This time around you’ll have the use of a number of collectable Blaster Heads, such as the Phalanx and Sidewinder, which will aid you in your battle – and some even let you bring enemies over to your side!

MAPPY® (NAMCO BANDAI, 500 Wii Points):

It’s a cat-and-mouse game like no other as you take control of Mappy, a brave police-mouse, in this arcade classic!

A gang of thieving cats have stolen treasures from all over the city and brought them back to their mansion! Your job is to infiltrate their mansion and negotiate traps, trampolines and dead ends to find all of the treasures and bring them back to their rightful owners. But watch out! Goro and his hench-cats are stalking the mansion and if they find you, you’re finished!


Scale a skyscraper to rescue your lost love in The Tower of Druaga, the well-loved arcade classic!

Armed only with his trusty sword and shield, Gil has to battle his way through monsters and mazes to find the key to each floor and ascend to the next. As a bonus, Druaga’s treasures are scattered throughout his tower. If Gil manages to grab even a few of them, he’ll be a rich man…if he ever gets out of the tower.

STARFORCE™ (TECMO, 500 Wii Points):

A huge global hit at the arcades, this classic shooter blasts its way back on Virtual Console!

STARFORCE is an exhilarating vertical shooter, in which one button is your key to shooting down hordes of attacking enemy units. Sound simple? Try finding all of the hidden special bonuses scattered across 25 areas! Hunt down the super-secret target in the game for a whopping 1 million bonus points!

Virtual Console arcade games are available to download via the Wii Shop Channel using Nintendo Points. Downloaded games are saved to the Wii’s internal memory and added to the console’s Wii Menu allowing them to be easily accessed at any time.

Following the latest Wii Menu update, scheduled today, you will not only be able to save your Wii Shop Channel downloaded software on an SD Card but also launch them directly from your SD Card! If you feel that you need more space to store your Wii Channels and Virtual Console and WiiWare titles, then this is the solution!

This week’s titles join the 281 other classic games currently available for Virtual Console in Europe.

Xbox LIVE® Arcade Gamers Get the Chance to Relive the Arcade Classic

LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (March 12th, 2009) – SEGA of Europe ltd. today announced the return of Virtual On™, the classic mech arcade fighting game. Players will be able to revisit the Virtual On universe with several enhancements which include improved graphics and online multiplayer. Cyber Troopers Virtual On Oratorio Tangram™ will be available Spring 2009 exclusively on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®.

Developed by SEGA’s AM3 division, famous for titles such as Crazy Taxi™ and Virtua Tennis™, Cyber Troopers Virtual On Oratorio Tangram™ is based on the latest arcade version of the second game in the franchise, which is critically acclaimed and widely considered to be the best in the series. Players will square off against an AI or human opponent as they dodge, shoot, and slice their way to victory in one of the game’s many futuristic environments. Since the Virtuaroids dash with such quick movement, players are required to diversify their tactics, all while keeping a keen eye and quick trigger finger.

Available for the first time on Xbox LIVE®, Virtual On features high-octane mech action with 15 playable Virtuaroids. Players can choose how they want to play as each mech has its own defining characteristics. The game delivers an online 1 vs. 1 multiplayer battle mode, as well as fast-paced single player action through 10 Arcade-mode levels and 14 Score attack stages. Virtual On features numerous ways to earn achievements as well as voice communication.

Cyber Troopers Virtual On Oratorio Tangram™ will be released exclusively on Xbox LIVE® Arcade in Spring 2009.
