Paper Mario coming to the Virtual Console

Posted by Darren Calvert

Nintendo Power have a piece in their May issue which would seem to indicate that Paper Mario is coming to the Virtual Console. No dates are given and as this came out in 2001 it is already ESRB rated so it's harder to validate this from another source at present.

Still we live in hope. With Super Paper Mario doing so well in North America on the Wii this is really is the perfect partner.

Thanks to GoNintendo and countless vc-reviews readers who emailed in about this.

I really hope this appears soon, would be worth the n64 points but I hope Nintendo don't ask for more like they do with some.

Hopefully, i've not long finished Thousand Year Door and never played the original. Saw it for sale the otherday in the highstreet for £40 used so 1000 Wii Points would be a bargain.

The Paper Mario games are some of the best games that Nintendo has ever put out. I can't wait to see the original on the VC.

That is the only Paper Mario in the series I actually like. I have it bought but I think I might download it anyway.

Lame?! I don't believe anyone ever thought it was lame. Madness.

This would definitely make up for the last two dismal weeks. But then so would Streets of Rage 2. And it's a long weekend here in the UK, so either (or both) please, Nintendo.

I definitely remember thinking that this was such a n00b game. "Not quite 3d?! wtf are they thinking?" But, then again, I did the same thing with Earthbound and SMRPG >.< (I just didn't like RPG's very much). Anyway, I'll be picking this up as soon as it comes out. I've played this on ROMs, since a cartridge is hard to find (and expensive).

I hope this comes out for the VC! I was only able to play it at my cousins house and I never go to play very much of it.

Wow I only played this at my friends once didn't get very far. I guess if Nintendo puts this on the vc soon I guess it will make up for only haveing 4 N64 games.

I LOVE THIS GAME! I didn't expect this game to come out until next year on the virtual console, but I'll be glad to buy this game off anytime. Now Nintendo, about Donkey Kong 64....

Come on Nintendo! Where is my Beetle Adventure Racing, Zombies Ate My Neighbors, Harvest Moon 64/SNES, Pilotwings 64, and Illusion of Gaia (prays for this)

you know after reading the news on this at i WAS going to come on here and point it out and make fun... but it appears you are already on top of that, kudos to you VC guys. ill need to buy TTYD, played and beat it already last year.

now normally people would bitch and complain about other games not being out here, but i think Nintendo is doing pretty well as of late and i am satisfied.... but serious why isnt Zelda II released in the US yet, come on... seriously .... think about it.

Actually, the way the ESRB works, we'd know if they rated it for the Wii. If a game is on multiple systems, their website will say so. For example, if you search Super Mario Brothers, says it's on Game Boy Advance and Wii, which is true. So if they rate Paper Mario for Wii, it'll be obvious. Also, if NP says a game is coming to VC, it generally is coming very soon (Zelda II is the strange exception to this rule).
