Virtual Console, or VC for short, is a line of downloadable games for Nintendo's Wii, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS consoles. The line-up consists of game titles originally released on past home and handheld consoles. Many of these titles run on their original forms through software emulation, excluding GBA titles on the 3DS, therefore remaining mostly unaltered from their original visual format. They can be purchased from the Wii Shop Channel or Nintendo eShop for between 500 to 1200 Wii Points, $2.99 to $6.99 or $4.99 to $9.99 depending on the system purchased on, the game's rarity, and/or the game's demand. VC's library of games currently consists of titles that originated on the Nintendo Entertainment System, Super NES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Nintendo 64, Game Boy Advanced, Nintendo DS, Sega Master System, Genesis/Mega Drive, NEC's TurboGrafx-16, SNK's Neo Geo AES, regional platforms such as the Commodore 64 and MSX, and Arcade.
