Get ready for some serious nostalgia.

Capcom have announced on their blog that three classic games are headed to the Wii U Virtual Console this month.

The NES game that started it all, Mega Man, became available on May 2. Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts will arrive on May 16 and Ghosts ‘n Goblins (the NES version) is slated for May 30.

It has already been announced that Mega Man 5 will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS eShop this month, but Japan’s release of Mega Man 3 for the Wii U VC on May 1 hints at more to come for North America. Capcom promises more releases in the near future.

DEMON'S CREST FOR CRYING OUT LOUD

You guys should play through the beloved Super Ghouls and Ghosts one more time on the podcast.

I'm down for a(nother) purchase of Super Ghouls & Ghosts.

My love affair with Super Ghouls'n'Ghosts is well known.


IT HURTS SO GOOD.

Happy to see 3 games I already own and have been available for quite some time are coming to the Wii U Virtual Console.

DEMON'S CREST FOR CRYING OUT LOUD

As someone who loves Super Ghouls n Ghosts, how the hell did I overlook this franchise as a kid?!?!  Gameplay videos make this look pretty awesome.

Seriously, this is one of the best games on the Super Nintendo. And a save state would be tits for the super awful final final boss.

I've never played Demon's Crest (although I did play Gargoyle's Quest on 3DS VC) but it looks incredible. Does anyone know if there is a potential hold up for DC? Is there some reason why they would have difficulty re-releasing it? It just seems like such an odd omission from the Wii VC.

This. I used to rent Demon's Crest all the time as a kid from the video store. That's long gone now. When I went to try and buy it last year I was hard pressed to find a copy under $150!! That's fuckin' ridic.
