European Wii owners have another three titles to download from the Virtual Console. In the first, Galaga, players control a spaceship moving left and right at the bottom of the screen, and shoot at the oncoming hordes of aliens.

Also now available is Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts, originally launched on the Super Nintendo in 1992, the platform game is the sequel to titles Ghosts 'N Goblins, and Ghouls 'N Ghosts.
