At this week’s Game Developers Conference, a number of incredible new (and old) additions were announced for the Wii’s downloadable game services, but the one that really gets me going is this: arcade titles will be added to the Virtual Console lineup. There’s just nothing like the classics.

Nintendo didn’t mess around with any of this fancy advance warning business, either; bam! The arcade additions were announced, and bam! You can already download a few via the Virtual Console. Here’s the list of games that have been announced:

  • Mappy (Namco Bandai): 500 Wii Points (available now)
  • The Tower Of Druaga (Namco Bandai): 500 Wii Points (available now)
  • Starforce (Tecmo): 500 Wii Points (available now)
