Virtual Console is the retro gaming division of the Wii's selection of games. Accessible from the Wii Shop Channel, it offers a wide variety of games previously released on earlier generation consoles

With the use of Wii Points, you are able to not only download Nintendo games found on the NES, SNES, and N64, but also formerly competing company's games, including Sega's Mega Drive and Master System, SNK's Neo Geo, and NEC's TurboGrafx-16.

In addition to those systems currently available, Nintendo has announced the upcoming availability of games from two other consoles. The MSX computer platform has been released in Japan with only one title, and the Commodore 64, also a popular home computer, has been released with 9 games available.

Also, titles originally released only in Japan can be downloaded in other areas.
