Wii Virtual Console Games -
The Best of Nintendo Remade for the Wii

Wii Virtual Console games are the best games from Nintendo's old video games systems, remade especially for the Wii.

Through Wii Virtual Console, Nintendo is making its most popular games from the NES, SNES, N64, Arcade, Commodore 64, NEOGEO, Sega Genesis, Sega Master System and TurboGrafx 16 video games consoles available to a new generation (and to a generation hoping to recapture gaming glory from the good old days!).

Even though these games have been remade to run on the Wii console, they still retain their original control schemes. This means that the Wii mote controller's motion sensor doesn't work on these games, and you'll use the Wii remote as a good old fashioned manual controller.

If you've got a Wii Classic Controller, though, you can use it with all Nintendo Wii Virtual Console games.

Virtual Console games are available for download in the Wii Shop Channel. This is a real bonus because you don't need to wait for these games to arrive in the post.

The Wii Shop has two main shopping areas available. One area is specifically reserved for Virtual Console games and the other is for Wii Ware games. Simply enter the Wii Shop Channel from the Wii menu on your console, and click on the Virtual Console section to browse all the available games.

When you're ready to buy a Virtual Console game in the Wii Shop, you'll first need to purchase Wii Points. You can learn how to buy Wii Points and use them to download Wii Virtual Console games by clicking this link.

Virtual Console games generally cost between 500 points and 1,200 points.
