Last week we showed you a virtual console trailer that was released in the UK, giving us a preview of some of the upcoming games we’ll see on the Virtual Console soon. It turns out soon is this month for some of the Capcom games we saw in the trailer, including Super Ghouls n’ Ghosts, Mega Man, and Ghosts n’ Goblins. A post on the Capcom Unity blog shows off these titles, along with their release date:

  • Mega Man – May 2nd
  • Super Ghouls n’ Ghosts – May 16th
  • Ghosts n’ Goblins – May 30th

That means Mega Man is already available for you to download, with Arthur’s two installments coming later this month. I’m personally excited about Super Ghouls n’ Ghosts, as it’s my all time favorite SNES game, but tell me, what are you guys excited for? What games do you want to see come to Virtual Console next?

  • Geoffrey Tasker

    ahem, capcom, wheres my street fighter!?

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Yup, that one and the Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo.

    • Potemkin


    • Ace J

      ssfiv ae is my favorite game but too bad my xbox broke. i want to call up capcom and beg them for a wii u version

    “What games do you want to see come to Virtual Console next?”

    I love playing Williams Electronics games – Defender, Robotron, Joust. It would be great to see it on the Wii U. Especially because they require (Defender and Robotron) a large number of buttons or two joysticks. Here GamePad would work perfectly.

    And Castlevania Adventure !

    Zelda link to the past

    • Zuxs13

      I think you missed the part where this was about Capcom.. lol

      • Magnus Eriksson

        No, try again! The question was…

  • Jeffrey Debris

    I downloaded Mega Man last night, it’s still awesome today! I can’t wait to see more good old Capcom games. Final Fight and Street Fighter would be awesome. But what I really want is Breath of Fire!

  • Yay more old games. Ports of old 360/ps3 games old nes snes games and wii ports. So you got zombie u and nintendo land the next new game is how many month away? me selling wii= best thing i have done this year.

    • wiiucompl

      You have chosen the wrong page. You should visit: 😉


      You sold a new console 6 months after it’s launch?…. dumbass!

    • Ace J

      wait wtf are you talking about?

    • Dorfdad

      Not calling you a Liar but…….If you sold your Wiiu than explain why you visit a WiiU site? Do you Troll much?? Why would you care what games are coming or out? Go play your 360 / PS3 or PC and be happy as for you opinion on the state of WiiU well it reminded me of my ass. It stinks and no one wants to hear it.

    • NkoSekirei

      ur a moron

  • Sami Rautio

    No Excusese Capcom
    * Chip & Dale Rescue rangers 1 & 2 nes
    must have on Wii U eshop!

  • Magnus Eriksson

    GCN games, Saturn, something surprising like that. That would make me change my opinions on Nintendo a bit. Otherwise a full library from Wii VC with a continuation of games that was never released on the service.

    • Aaron Bryant

      Saturn games would rock especially because that is a system I NEVER played and it’d be cool to play those games!!

      • Magnus Eriksson

        I know! It would be awesome!

  • Chris Stoffel

    Earthbound!!!! I’m hoping for some Dreamcast ports eventually too.

    • Javy G

      Dreamcast! Better bring in PowerStone if that happens!

    • david jarman

      I would love to see shenmue on nintendo.

  • Jack5221

    Its not on the list, but Pac-Man is on the VC too. I really REALLY want street fighter!

    • strumstrum

      Commando, Pocket Fighter, Puzzle Fighter, Final FIght and Capcom Sports Club for me please

  • Zuxs13

    These are some great games, not very many games but they are great none the less. Worth picking up.

  • Austin Troth

    Would love some Megaman X titles

    • Sonic


  • Saul Rivera

    I would love to see the Virtual Console Arcade with releases like the Teenage Ninja Turtles…Street Fighter 3 and others like Outrun or the Neo-Geo with Snk vs Capcom..etc

    Played these Nes games so many times and seen them released so many times..I would love to see other classics not yet released

    • Barters

      Oh please release ninja turtles the arcade game.

  • Ice Climbers

    Can’t wait for Street Fighter. I’d love to see Contra on the VC. Some Saturn and Dreamcast games would be nice too.

  • wow super ghouls and ghost….. epic game still have nightmares about it. I could never beat the dam game so hard so hard even on the easy setting. Making you go twice through it how more sadistic can you get. day one buyer Im sold!!!!!!!!!

  • Yogurtu Mghe

  • Dominic Coradazzi

    Megaman X!!
    or maybe some Gamecube games like Wind Waker or Tales of Symphonia

  • Guest

    I would like to see wiiware titles on the wii u menu instead to go to the wii emulator, also some wiiware games are on 4:3 instead of 16:9 so i would like to see them in their original aspect ratio.

  • devmiles

    yaaaaay more 4:3 games with a fucking black bar in your screen. better use a good emulator and scale up the graphics better than a wii-u can do with it’s shitty money making virtual console… at least show some improvements like fullscreen or updated graphics. i can play all these games on my snes.. fucking nintendo

  • Zombie Boy

    I’d like to see some of the old Sega games – Sonic 1 and 2, Road Rash, Toejam and Earl…

  • MasterPpv

    I just want Super Smash Bros. Melee…
