      Might bite on the 480p version of Starfox 64

        Older 3d games can have dramatically better visuals with emulation (higher resolution, AA, better filtering), but I'm guessing Nintendo is aiming for authenticity.

          Yeah, but 480p on Wii is still a lot smoother than the 240p on N64. They could take it even farther on the Wii U, but at the pace they're going, I don't think we're going to see any N64 games. I'm pretty sure the Wii Shop had a much larger Virtual Console library 2 years into it's life.

      Starfox 64 was offered this time last year. Still no n64 games on Wii U VC. Sigh.

      So many fucking things Nintendo is doing wrong. I swear they're retarded or something. Starfox 64 on Wii VC? You mean the console where you just cut online play for a ton of games and released a new version of the console that can't even connect to the fucking internet? Thanks a lot. I'll be sure to rebuy the game I already own from you guys on Wii U VC for a discounted price when the Wii U finally gets N64 VC support if that ever happens.

      And then they have the Wii U VC and 3DS VC that aren't compatible with each other. I can buy PS1 games on PS3 and play them on my Vita, but I can't buy an NES game on my WiiU and play it on my 3DS without buying it again? And games I already owned on Wii VC aren't free on Wii U VC, gotta pay for it again albeit at a discounted price.

      Literally the only thing Nintendo can do right is make games, and those are even getting kind of tired since they're just the same IPs over and over with new levels and better graphics. They even kinda messed up the new Mario Kart by making the battle mode stupid and not fun to play. And not being able to have 5 players with 4 players using the TV splitscreen and 1 player having the gamepad screen is dumb too, considering Sonic Racing Tranformed on Wii U let you do it.

      I mean c'mon guys I want to like you but you're making it really difficult.

        I don't think some of you guys get it. They're not just now releasing Star Fox 64 for Wii. It came out all the way back in April 2007 when the Wii wasn't even 6 months old. This is an offer for Club Nintendo members to cash in their coins for a free game.

        Every Wii game is playable on Wii U, including all Virtual Console games. There's nothing whatsoever stopping you from downloading this for your Wii U. They can't give away a Wii U native version of Star Fox 64 because it doesn't exist yet, they'd have to release one first.

          They should at least make the Wii U Pro Controller work with Wii Mode. That's what's stopping me from playing them. I have to go buy a Wii Pro Controller. Exact same thing. Maybe different com method, but c'mon.

            Thats why I won't buy Wii VC. If it worked with my WiiU pro, sure but I have to buy yet another controller just to play Wii VC? I don't think so.

              If a Wii VC game is compatible with Wii U VC, you can play it from the Wii U menu and use your Pro controller. I know that sounds rather tangled, and it doesn't apply to Star Fox 64 since it's not available on the Wii U VC, but it's a nice option if you want to carry over what Wii VC games you own that are compatible.


              I do love my Pro controller, though. Might be the most comfortable controller I've ever held.

                If you own a Wii VC game that's also on Wii U VC, you still have to buy it again to play it on Wii U. At a discounted price though.

                Pretty much none of my Wii VC games are WiiU compatible so I'm kinda stuck.

              I hope they at least make that Gamecube controller adapter compatible with the Wii mode on Wii U.
