N64 Games Heading to Wii U’s Virtual Console?


When the Wii U‘s Virtual Console launched in North America, Nintendo mentioned bringing some of our favorite N64 titles to the console at some point. However, it’s been over a year and a half and we still have nothing but NES, SNES and GBA games to pick from.

According to a Polygon article, Nintendo‘s official website asks consumers to check back for the “future addition of titles from the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo 64 systems.

This would be huge news, especially if they added off-screen play to games like Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask or Super Mario 64. Once the N64 titles start sliding on to the Virtual Console, which games would you like to see make the transition?

  1. I was going to make a comment about ‘why couldn’t we have them on the 3DS’, then realised that the games might not work so well without needing to be rebinded.
    Games? I reckon Smash Bros. with updated multi would be awesome. Same with Mario Kart. Or even Pokemon Stadium!

    1. I spent an unhealthy amount of time playing Pokemon Stadium. Aside from the ones I mentioned in the post, I’d really like to see Paper Mario and Perfect Dark (even if it just has local multiplayer).

      1. It’s baffling really.

        Nintendo is sitting on a gold mine of old classic games, and they seem unwilling to harvest the goods.
