N64 on the Virtual Console; What N64 games you would like redone for the Wii U?

BDR UPDATE: April 2015 marks the month in which :n64: games have finally found there way onto the Wii U Virtual Console. This is an exciting moment as Nintendo is breathing new life into classic games. The present and pending list is quite short right now, but one might expect that as many (if not more) N64 games will be offered on the Wii U Virtual Console than on the Wii Virtual Console. Here is a list of games (from Wikipedia) that are presently available or pending. (Click on the titles in green to see their 64-Bit Reviews).

But what is your wish list? Be sure to tell us which N64 titles you want to see offered on the :Wii U: Virtual Console.

:n64: on :Wii U: Virtual Console

Kirby 64: The Crystal ShardsPokemon Puzzle LeagueThe Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Mario GolfPokeman Snap
Wave Race 64
Mario Kart 64Sin and PunishmentYoshi's Story

I would choose F-zero X it has an amazing soundtrack and amazing graphics.
I'd like to see more car detail and more buildings why racing. Also can't go wrong with 3d models that exactly like comic book models on f-zero x n64.

This is going to sound contradictory: I don't like when they do remakes of old masterpieces. But, never having played WindWaker on the gamecube, it was just awesome to be able to play the HD version when I bought the WiiU. So... that being said, if I had to choose I'd say Goldeneye007 because it needs it.

GoldenEye would be great, but only if they gave me a way to use the N64 controller (RE-RELEASE, NINTENDO???). I think legal mumbo jumbo will forever restrict GoldenEye from a remake of any kind though unfortunately.

It's pretty un-original, but I think of the entire N64 library, Super Mario 64 is the game I would want an HD remake of the most. I think it could be beautiful.

Ya goldeneye remake would be great. The character models would look great, especially when you unlock the entire roster for multiplayer. Not to mention the maps would have more things going on in them and have more interesting detail. Also there could be a 4 player campaign online or offline, where you can choose to be the bad guy or the good guy. Even AI is able to do mission objectives, so you all could be the bad guy. lol you have any idea how fun it would be to kill your own teammates and AI for the map? I think it would be hilarious, especially when bond just walks bye you guys, shooting at the walls in paintball mode, and he wins and you guys lose lol.

Another good thing would be online multiplayer, also up to 12 - 16 players, assuming they will add new maps. Oh the maps! Would be nice to see a remastered version of the first level the dam. The fog problem will go away due to a more powerful machine.

LoL and the legal stuff blows. I hated when EA took over. They were boring and bland. Rareware is where it's at. I mean Killer Instinct, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Goldeneye 007, Donkey Kong, and many others. But ever since the legal crap, they haven't been able to make a comeback. I would love to see a Conker's Bad Furday redone. Online Capabilities. More players, all the old maps redone, with new ones. More modes, and more bots. maybe play up to 24 players.

I don't know. I would really love to see a remastered version of F-Zero X. All the tracks will have more going on in the scene this includes in the city levels more skyscrapers that you can zoom by at more than a 1000 kmh! The cars will look more realistic. Meaning that they will show detail of panels, jets, windows, bolts, and even paint wear to make them look super awesome. They would also make the tracks have the same colors, but they will be remastered designs, and they explain what these different types of tracks are made of, and what their purpose is for. Like a water pulse ripple. The entire track that is made from this kind of material would be a special glass traction jet track that the water, glass, and metal casing for magnets, it helps boost kmh by about 100-150 kmh. This would make master mode look like expert mode. This means they would add a 2nd Master Mode, which should be Grand Master Mode, and that in Grand Master mode, knowing these details about the tracks help out a lot when you try to become champion of Grand Master. Also there will be a 4 player mode GP, so you can unlock everything with your friends :). There will also be 4 players per console, so meaning that there are 32 cars on the track instead of 30, will make it feel like home with 2 extra players, but now you're player against live players instead of computers. So watch out for spinning or jerky cars, they may wipe you out!

Either way, I see a lot of good things coming if they add remastered versions of many great N64 games. All the old material remastered with addition to new material, like new maps, modes, players, etc.

Majora's Mask. A game like that deserves a 1080P console update. not a low resolution remake for the 3DS.

I like your style! And have 4 player adventure! 2 players can play in one world, and the other 2 play in another! Or! All play in the same world! Or Better yet! All 4 go into other worlds to earn stars a lot faster! And the edition of adding new content, such as new worlds. Would result in the DLC would give you episode 2 with more stars, music, modes, etc. :)

My friend had Jet Force Gemini. It was fun, but I can't remember if it had 2 player, but I do know that if it were remastered, that it would have up to 4 players, split screen, or online, and it would have no guns and bosses, and music.

Jet Force Gemini for sure! Sequal all the way!


But I can imagen Blastcorps with high def explosions and rated 16+

What I've seen with Mariokart 8
I was thinking about Waverace and Diddykong Racing or maybe 1080 Snowboarding. the Visuals would be stunning!



@TheJuice401 what about same game, same graphics, but online! ;) would not be that 'hard' to make, if they still have the development softwares.

Not even a little bit of extra content?

Smash bros for the 3ds is pretty fun. But it would take time getting use to playing against level 9 cpu. On the n64 I can easily take on 3 cpu on level 9. There's a lot of blocking, but aoe damage is key :).

Okay, tell me this is true. The Wii U is really getting N64 games on the WiiU VC!

LINK: ign.com

This is great news. Amazing it took this long. Finally all those comments I put in those Club Nintendo surveys are paying off.

If they released Goldeneye and added an online multiplayer mode, that'd be interesting :)

This doesn't really open up the whole library, but I think it's big news because finally N64 games will be "officially" formatted for HDTV displays.

I watched some direct feed footage of Super Mario 64, and it doesn't look like the games themselves will be in HD, but it's at least scaled to HD and run through HDMI on the Wii U. No worrying about delays from upscalers, or the muddyness that comes from hooking a composite signal to most HDTV sets.

Plus gameplay on the Wii U Gamepad!

GoldenEye on the VC would be amazing. But man, I really doubt that all those license holders will ever come to any sort of agreement. Sad to say because they could all stand to make some money.

I've added a list to Post #1 of N64 Wii U and Wii Virtual Console games.

Alas, my dreams of a polished up Star Wars Episode I Racer, fully playable on gamepad or with Wii U Pro Controller, will never be realized. I did not spring for Sin & Punishment on the Wii VC, but if it comes to the Wii U VC, I probably will.

Sin & Punishment is being released tomorrow in NA!!! Not to be a broken record, but this is tied with SWE1R as my favorite N64 game. See 64-bit review here. I am really curious to play it on the Wii U and my fingers are crossed for dual stick controls (on the N64, the thumbstick was for aiming, forcing you to use the buttons for character movement.)

I will update the first post. Been a little lax here. :-8
