Commodore 64 Titles To Be Available On Wii’s Virtual Console – Paddle Controllers Will Hopefully Return

Wow! What a morning it’s been. Not only did I wake up to videos of satellites gettin’ ‘sploded, but also this fantastic news that Commodores 64 games will soon be available on Wii’s Virtual Console. While I haven’t felt the need to purchase any games from the VC as of yet, it’s mostly because my N64 and Super Nintendo are still hooked up and running. But my Commodore 64 is buried in a box in my parent’s basement, and quite frankly, I’m happy to leave it there.

For some reason the games will only initially be available on the European Wii Shop Channel, and will be priced at 500 Wii points, or £3.50. At launch International Karate, Uridium and a handful of other titles will be available, but more will soon follow. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Law Of The West, Radar Rat Race and Test Drive. Not even Gran Turismo can reproduce the excitement of perpetually driving around a mountain like TD could.

Any particular titles you’re hoping to see?

    My wife is crazy about JumpMan — hopefully that’ll make it to the Wii!
