Classic arcade shoot-‘em-up Galaga™ was faithfully recreated for the home in this acclaimed NES version.

Galaga™ became an instant classic with its innovative fighter combination system and varied enemy attack patterns. Control your fighter and shoot down the waves of invading aliens; and win bonuses in challenging stages by not missing a single enemy.

If your fighter gets captured by an enemy, free it from the tractor beam and combine with it to form a dual fighter with twice the firepower!

Please note: Galaga™ on Wii U Virtual Console is the US version of the game.

Relive the 80s
