Three new titles hit Wii Virtual Console

Nintendo has made three new titles available on the Wii's Virtual Console download system today - with the total number now available to European gamers now standing at some 62 titles.

The three new titles span over a decade - starting with arcade classic Galaga, which was launched in 1981, and moving on to Turbografx release Double Dungeons, from 1990, and Capcom's Super Ghouls and Ghosts, originally launched on the SNES in 1992.

The three titles cost 500, 600 and 800 Wii points respectively, and are available to download immediately.

So far Nintendo has managed to keep a steady flow of new releases to the Virtual Console, with multiple titles appearing on the system every week - but as yet, there is no sign of the original content which the firm hinted would appear on the system, with all of the titles released to date being re-releases of retro games.

Virtual Console has also stirred up controversy due to Nintendo's decision to issue the original poor PAL conversions of some titles, rather than emulating the superior NTSC versions - and problems continue to plague the service regarding compatibility with the Wii component cable, used by customers who have EDTV / HDTV setups.
