Capcom resurrects arcade classics

Commando, SonSon, Exed Exes Wii-bound.

Ancient Capcom arcaders Commando, SonSon and Exed Exes are heading to Wii's Virtual Console.

The three titles are already available in Japan but listings from Australia's OFLC rating body spied by Joystiq suggest they'll soon be heading West too.

Commando is probably the best known of the trio, having been ported and updated countless times since its original 1985 release. The solid Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 hit Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in 2008.

SonSon is a 1984 platformer based on the same Chinese myth as Ninja Theory's forthcoming Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. You may remember its titular hero kicking rump in Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

Exed Exes is a top-down shoot-'em-up from 1985. It was released in the West under the (far superior) title, Attack of the Savage Bees.

We've asked Nintendo to confirm a release window for the games.
