Capcom Signs On for Virtual Console Arcade

Classic Capcom arcade titles on the way for retro download service. Sonson starts things off.


The Virtual Console Arcade part of Nintendo's Virtual Console download service has been mostly limited to Sega and Namco Bandai. Now Capcom is joining in on the retro fun.

The company announced today that it will be releasing titles for Virtual Console Arcade. It said that it plans on bringing popular titles from its catalogue to the service.

The first game to emerge from this initiative will be Sonson. This arcade side scroller, based off the Saiyuuki ("Journey to the West") classical novel, was released in 1984 as Capcom's second arcade title.

The Virtual Console version will be released some time this summer at 800 Wii Points.
