    Yes, the Commodore 64 has finally arrived! Sorry, no news on if or when it'll come to America. The games retail at 500 Wii Points, here's the first two:

    International Karate
    Uridium

    On top of that, we get a new Nintendo 64 game as well:

    Cruis'n USA

    Three whole games? We'll probably be getting nothing for the next fortnight then.

    I wonder if they still have the ridiculously long loading times? VC games are meant to quite accurate emulations, after all.

    Just to satisfy some people's curiosity: According to vc-reviews, they make up for the lack of keyboard with a virtual one like you see when you type stuff in the Wii's web browser.

    How old are you guys? The sound effects hurt my ears! But you got 3 games! 3 games is better than 1! A glimmer of hope? Please release more games per week!

    This one has seen 8 console wars

    The C64 games where never the best soundin/lookin games ever but they mostly played well
    Shame the same cant be said about recent games
