Capcom Brings Arcade Games to Virtual Console

Capcom doesn’t have much of a presence in arcades nowadays, but they used to be a major force with games like Final Fight, 1942, Ghouls ‘N Ghosts and, of course, Street Fighter II. It looks like Wii owners will soon be getting a reminder of that arcade pedigree. The publisher announced plans on Friday to bring titles to the Virtual Console Arcade side of the Virtual Console service.

Currently, the VCA release list list is dominated by Namco Bandai, with Sega throwing out an occasional game here and there. Capcom’s support will begin some time this summer, with the company hoping to release the more popular titles from its catalogue. First up is Sonson, a 1984 side scroller that later made it out to the NES (but only in Japan).

These plans are just for Japan at the moment. However, with many of Capcom’s arcade classics having originally seen international release, we have a feeling we’ll see some support on our Virtual Console as well.
