Looks like Nintendo hasn't completely given up on the Wii Virtual Console just yet! Fans of fighting games from the 90s can bask in The Last Blade from SNK, downloadable in the US as of today.
Some other VC-related news has also surfaced from the E3 expo in Los Angeles. When the Wii U console eventually comes out, you'll be able to transfer your existing Virtual Console games onto it! Let the good times roll.
