What Capcom games do you want to see on the Virtual Console?

Let the good people at Capcom know what you want.

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..

14-15 July 2009 (JAPAN)

Japanese WiiWare is back from holiday with a vengeance, plus Shinobi!

Aside from Electroplankton, last week was possibly the driest Japanese download week in living memory. Nintendo has made up for the WiiWare break last week with five new WiiWare titles in addition to two new Virtual Console Arcade titles and a slew of Game and Watch titles for the DSiWare service. Marcel has already posted the..

The Hanabi Festival continues with two more imports on VC, two WiiWare games and one DSiWare game.

Last week brought us the excellent Pulseman and Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen as the first two imports of the fourth Hanabi Festival. This week brings us two more imports, and again, both of them are great! Zoda's Revenge: StarTropics II is the second and, sadly, last StarTropics game. You..

Review: Pulseman (Virtual Console / Sega Mega Drive)

Pulseman (Virtual Console / Sega Mega Drive)

Will Pulseman's quality shock you?

Ask yourself this - what games have Game Freak actually developed? Many people will probably only answer with "Pokémon," but the truth is, before Pokémon was even created, Game Freak was responsible for a handful of unique titles of their own. Pulseman was strangely only released in Japan originally. It was temporarily available on the "Sega..

07-08 July 2009 (JAPAN)

A couple of classics on the Wii and a whole lot of Electro-Plankton for the DSi next week in Japan.

Well it looks like Japan is having a WiiWare holiday next week with no new titles having been announced via the website or the shop news bulletin. The two Virtual Console releases offer a catch-up title in the form of Super Punch Out for the Super Famicom (800pts) and yet another Virtual Console..

Hanabi Festival 4, Gradius Rebirth, Bit Boy!!, Brain Challenge and Mario Apps (EU)

It's a fantastic week for Europe, with a total of 7 new downloadable games across all services!

As Hudson revealed last week, this month brings us the 4th Hanabi Festival! And what luck, it's already started in the very first week of the month - There's two new imports up for grabs right now!

Expect more Final Fight, Phantasy Star and Shinobi in the near future.

30th June - 1st July 2009 addendum (JAPAN)

Two more WiiWare titles coming Tuesday aimed at younger gamers and an extra DSiWare title on the 1st.

Looks like the mock tears for Japan were premature last week as some additional releases mean Japan has a 3-2-2 week it turns out. Thanks to Nintendo Life reader Ratengo for noting that the Japanese Shop news item for this week's releases had two additional WiiWare titles that weren't detailed on..

Fantasies, Fishing, Warfare, Reversi and Sudoku (US)

NoA's sudden WiiWare push continues, with yet another 3 WiiWare games and 1 game for both DSiWare and Virtual Console.

Nintendo seems to be focusing on WiiWare a lot lately. Perhaps they're just trying to stir up excitement for upcoming big releases? It mostly seems to be a Europe catchup week - Only two WiiWare games are new for the west and neither seems very interesting. Water Warfare is..

30th June - 1st July 2009 (JAPAN)

An unusually light release week for Japan with 1 WiiWare, 2 Virtual Console and 1 DSiWare release.

After weeks of mass software dowloading we see a release week that would look at home in PAL territories or North America -- maybe it's going to be Japan's turn for light release weeks for a change? On the WiiWare front we have Final Fantasy Crystal...

The Hanabi Festival Returns to Europe Next Month

Finally, more import games!

We've been expecting another Hanabi Festival for quite a while now - A whole bunch of import titles are already rated and completely ready for release in PAL regions, but month after month, we were met with disappointment. It finally ends next month though! If you take a quick look at Hudson's Virtual Console site, you'll notice that Bomberman '94 and Detana!! Twinbee..

Japanese Virtual Console list - July 2009

Just three non-Namco games the entire month!

Japan is getting less and less games every month, but this has got to be the month with the least releases yet - Aside from the yet to be announced Namco arcade games, there will only be three games released in the entire month, meaning over half the VC systems will be ignored! The only good thing about it is that all three are high-profile games, but..

Review: Altered Beast (Virtual Console / Virtual Console Arcade)

Altered Beast (Virtual Console / Virtual Console Arcade)

Welcome to your doom!

There’s no two ways about it: Altered Beast is a terrible game. Even here, in a perfect conversion of the arcade original, it’s so horrendously stodgy and repetitive that it makes you wonder quite why anyone holds it in the slightest bit of regard. For those lucky few amongst you yet to engage in a little beast altering,...

Puzzle Bobble, Water Warfare, SimEarth, Altered Beast and More Sudoku (EU)

DSiWare takes a bit of a break to give the spotlight to the Wii releases this week.

A large part of today's update isn't very surprising - Three of the games are published by Hudson Soft and were already announced for release earlier this week. The two unannounced releases are quite nice surprises though! On WiiWare, we've gotten Puzzle Bobble Plus!, the third Bubble Bobble series WiiWare remake by..
