Smile Wii fans; soon you will have more classic video games coming to your console to make up for the lack of decent modern games. All joking aside Capcom has announced a lineup of their most popular classic arcade games to be released on the Nintendo Virtual Console.

This winter you will be able to play many of the old-school classics, six in all including:

1942 – This classic vertically-scrolling shoot ’em up is perhaps Capcom’s finest moment in the pre-Street Fighter era. Spawning a million clones and re-appearing throughout the history of gaming, 1942’s biplane action needs no introduction. And now, for the first time on the Wii, the original and best version.

EXED EXES – A retro classic from Capcom’s arcade line-up in 1985, Exed Exes is a vertically-scrolling shooter that’s sure to bring back fond memories. Dodge bullets! Collect fruit! And go for high scores in the most furious sci-fi insectoid shoot ’em up ever made.

Ghosts ’n Goblins – Ghosts ‘n Goblins is a classic game that packs a heavy punch (and lance). Experience the smash arcade hit from 1985 as you help Arthur defeat hordes of monsters in his attempt to rescue the princess. The first (and possibly only) game in which taking a hit reduces you to your underwear.
