Commodore 64 Titles To Join Virtual Console?

According to reports in the official U.S. Nintendo Power magazine, several Commodore 64 games may be emulated on the Wii's virtual console.

Although no specific titles were named, the only indications so far are of titles from now defunct U.S. developer Epyx, maker of the likes of Impossible Mission and the Summer/Winter/World/California Games series. Best known for their work on the 8-bit Commodore 64 home computer, Epyx also designed the prototype Lynx console for Atari as well as several of its games.

Loved these games back on the Amiga. System 3 need to release a C64 pack with Last Ninja and Myth too.

I do wonder how these games hold up today. I loved Robocod when it first came out, but help me that feels like a past lifetime, it’s been so long. The Amiga days were great.

OMFG I died laughing. I played and failed at most of these in my younger days. What a blast from the past!

So many memories of these games. What great times!

Many a keyboard on C64 took a beating from the 100m sprint. Summer games, Winter Games and Californian Games are some of my best gaming memories ever. I fell sorry for kids that grew up after Playstation era.

Same here. Got through waay too many of those flimsy joysticks with games like these on my c64. They should make a wiimote or move version where you just convulse violently until the sprint's finished...

These games bring back some of my most fond gaming moments. Playing these games with a group of friends was priceless. Thanks for the memories and for everybody who posted finally NOT making me feel old!!! LOL

Hacky Sacking and Surfing in California Games fueled my gaming addiction back in the day! It's amazing how you kinda forget those memories until your brain gets a kickstart by seeing something like this. Good times indeed.
