Exciting news. I guess? I haven't personally played any of the Wii U Virtual Console Games but I have seen numerous users report that they aren't that great visually because they add black bars and cause the colors to look dim or darkened. Some even say games like Paper Mario can suffer from frame drops...

I just bought paper mario the other day and haven't really noticed any of this but I play it largely on the screen controller though so I can also watch TV. that's obviously going to create a much different experience than trying to play it on the big screen.

Yeah I've noticed the dimming on Super Mario 64, but not so much on DK64. It's a great game, but I'm not sure I'm going to pick it up as I already own 5 copies of this game

I own a few VC titles, but not many of them.

The one 64 game I have is Super Mario 64 (It's the ultimate classic; so I own a few copies of the game). The game plays and sounds great. Exactly like the N64 or Emulator (only speedrunners may notice small tiny differences). However, the game is "dimmed" a little bit. Its not as vibrant as the original games.

Most people don't notice but it is noticable if you played (and remember) the original games; or use emulators alot.

The other games I own are NES and SNES. They seem a tiny bit darker, but I can't say for sure. Super Metroid, Earthbound, all seem just fine.

For the price; I would say its worth a risk. The only thing real problem I see is minor.

I wonder if it looks better then the N64 version.

They have such random timing for when they release things like this.
