This is a list of all Virtual Console releases for the Wii. The Wii Virtual Console service launched properly on December 10, 2006, and supported ten systems. The service began with NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, TurboGrafx-16 (PC Engine), and Sega Genesis (Sega Mega Drive) games at launch, then expanded into Neo Geo titles, then with Sega Master System and Arcade titles. In Japan titles for the MSX have been released, while in North America and Europe titles for the Commodore 64 have been released, which were later removed.

In PAL territories, some games use the original 50Hz PAL release, while others use the North American NTSC release.

The Wii Virtual Console service ended its operations on January 30, 2019 alongside the closure of the Wii Shop Channel.

NES[edit]

The Wii Virtual Console service launched alongside the Wii Shop Channel on December 10, 2006 with NES titles. NES Virtual Console titles are displayed through a filter that gives the effect of the game being displayed on an older television. NES titles released on the Wii Virtual Console were priced at 500 Wii Points each (600 for import titles).

NES games are compatible with the following controllers:
