I’m a huge arcade nut, so seeing arcade games coming to the Virtual Console service is something that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. The first four titles to release are Star Force (Tecmo), Mappy (Namco), Gaplus (Namco), and The Tower of Druaga (Namco) .
There are literally thousands of worthwhile arcade games that can be released on the Virtual Console. This could be a great source of revenue for struggling studios that have a strong arcade legacy, like Midway. I’m hoping that Nintendo decides to open up the stream of releases a little bit, because the well of arcade classics is pretty deep.
