I really can't believe they have given us Europeans the 50HZ Majoras Maskthe Wii version was 60 HZ. I was going to upgrade it but I'm not sure I want to know.I shouldn't be surprised actually considering Ocarina of Time was 50 HZ too but the fact the Wii MM was 60HZ you would have thought Wii U would get the same,but no.

Out of curiosity, how noticeable is a 50hz game as opposed to 60hz? What does it look like exactly? Like a worse framerate?

@JaxonH Yeah mate,it's pretty noticeable.50 HZ has big borders top and bottom and runs around 20% slower. It never really mattered back in the 80's ,very early 90's as we didn't really know better but I can remember reading in magazines that NA games looked and ran better than ours.Later on the 90's as TV's got better some games had the option of 50 HZ and 60 HZ so it was more easy to compare the difference.For someone who had only played 50 HZ before it was like night and day.About the only benefit from 50 HZ was it often resulted in a sharper picture.Really it's an issue that belongs way in the past but Nintendo have revived it again.I was going to upgrade my Wii version but other than Gamepad use it would actually be a downgrade.

NA needs to catch up to EU on the VC front.

I wish that SEGA cared about VC.So maybe we could get this game on Wii U's with the gamepad acting as the trackball of the original cabinet.

PAL was actually a better TV system than NTSC in many ways - it was a noticeably higher definition and 50 Hz to 60 Hz isn't actually that noticeable for most things.

The problem for video games was that they were almost always created for NTSC (because that's the TV standard used in the US and Japan) and they didn't properly convert or optimise games for use with PAL TVs. They just ran the games in the same low NTSC resolution (which is why us Europeans ended up with thick black borders) and slowed the games down by 15%.

Wave Race 64 stands out in my mind as being horrendous if you compare the versions.

Some games fared better than others - if the developer actually took the time to get things right you'd hardly notice the difference. Still - I think most people in Europe would prefer to have the US releases on virtual console if possible (this is definitely the case in the English speaking world!).

Why are there hardly any N64 games on the Wii U VC? I know some games are impossible to get on there due to licensing issues, such as the beloved Goldeneye, but there are only 10 N64 games on there, and only 21 on the Wii Shop Channel- which has a better catalog of games may I mind you. I know F-Zero X, Majora's Mask, Mario Kart 64 and Pokemon Snap are on the Wii Shop Channel. These are all Nintendo-developed games, so I'm rather shocked Nintendo doesn't put them on the Wii U. It should be easy for Nintendo, right?

@DiscoGentleman that one came out in Europe right?
It may be a Wii game, but I wonder if it could be brought over this time. There were a couple NES games released on VC this generation.

Because Nintendo seems to prefer to release GBA, DS and Wii games right now since they are newer. NES and SNES are also neglected right now. I doubt that the TurboGrafx will be hugely supported either.

Nintendo is abandoning the Wii U too, so don't expect much more VC games in the future. And if there is any more N64 games, it will be a game that's already been on the Wii VC so I would just buy the Wii VC games on a Wii.

Fatal Frame IV has an English translation, and can be played on Wii U if you really want. I have it on mine.

@Bass_X0 I doubt konami would put that much work into turbo vc unless they've been promised a certain number of releases or the vc will transfer over to the nx.

Wish I could say the same. Sucks having to wait for scraps with fan translations.

Anyone know if the Skyward Sword game breaking bug was patched or if it's just the original version without it?

At least the fixing tool should still be available on the Wii Shop if it isn't, but they might as well have taken the time.

I'd like to see any Super Nintendo or N64 game right now. I may not necessarily buy them, but I do think they deserve to be supported more. Same with the NES too, but not as much.

It's really annoying Nintendo haven't put out the remaining Wii Virtual Console games on the Wii U service, but it's even more annoying that the 3DS has some NES titles missing from the Wii U service, too. Anybody know why these games would be missing?

Adventure Island II
Star Soldier
Street Gangs
Summer Carnival '92 Recca
The Mysterious Murasame Castle

I've invested quite a bit into the Virtual Console and although I have a 3DS as well, I much prefer playing these games on the TV. These missing releases between consoles is a little annoying for somebody like me. I'm still waiting for Bubble Bobble to get a Wii U release. I guess that's not happening, either.

I hope the service continues and gets a new life on the Switch!

Thats easy. Nintendo are focusing on releasing Wii, DS and GBA games for the VC now instead of NES and SNES. They don't seem to care that much for the TG16 despite having added it as a supported console a few months ago.
