Now that the rate of Virtual Console releases has slowed from a flood to a trickle, it is understandable that many VC gamers have given up hope of playing their favourite Capcom games in the comfort of their living room on the Wii with a Classic Controller. Given the overwhelming reader response to our call to let SEGA know what you want we thought we would set our sights on the mighty Capcom next.
Capcom have been a firm supporter of the Virtual Console since its launch in 2006. We’ve seen the first three Mega Man games so far, along with oodles of Street Fighter goodness and Ghouls ‘n Ghosts action.
Now that the Virtual Console Arcade platform is up and running, Capcom have a great opportunity to release some of their classic CPS-1 and CPS-2 based arcade games for Wii gamers to enjoy all over again. What better time to tell Capcom which games you would like them to release next?
To kick things off we’d like Capcom to release Gargoyle's Quest II (NES), U.N. Squadron (SNES) and Strider (arcade). Of course all of the superb Disney licensed games are going to be a lot more difficult to release on the Virtual Console unfortunately.
With all that out of the way, have a careful think and tell Capcom what you want. When the dust has settled we’ll pass your choices on to Capcom’s PR & marketing department and hope that it doesn’t get thrown straight into the virtual trash can!
