Capcom’s announced that old arcade hits Ghosts & Goblins and Exed Exes are now available from Nintendo’s Virtual Console on Wii.

Ghosts ‘n’ Goblins is “the smash arcade hit from 1985 as you help Arthur defeat hordes of monsters in his attempt to rescue the princess. The first (and possibly only) game in which taking a hit reduces you to your underwear.”

Exed Exes, meanwhile, is another arcade game where you “dodge bullets, collect fruit and go for high scores in the most furious sci-fi insectoid shoot ’em up ever made.”

Both are available to buy now for 800 Wii points. Go nuts.
