Review: Punch-Out!! Wii U Virtual Console

Until July 2013 Nintendo is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Famicom by releasing "classic" titles for the new Wii U Virtual Console. As an added bonus, you can get these games for 30 cents during the first 30 days of each title's release. This month's release is F-Zero. Is it worth two bits and a buffalo nickel? Find out as wiiuonly's "King of Video Games" focuses the Eye of the Tiger. (Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream, Wii U) 9/10

This is supremely dumb. What makes the difference between the Wii VC and the WiiU VC when it's the SAME GAME??? Why would there be a difference?

The only diff I can think of is that wii was not 1080p and wii u is, but for something like this I can't imagine it making much if any difference.

It comes with off screen play, and includes the virtual console menu, allowing you to create restore points in the game. The new version also creates integration with MiiVerse, allowing you to pause the game, comment and show screenshots. Same game, updated features for WiiU. And at 30 cents, a no-brainer upgrade.

it's dumb if you already have the wii VC version... if you don't have the game, then why not get the wii U VC version?

No wiiU features are available using the Wii Shop channel. No friends list, no video chat, nothing. so ya, for a couple more bucks its worth it for me. Oh wait, no I don't have to pay extra. I actually waited for the WiiHD ever since I first realized that the Wii wasn't a good nintendo machine. The virtual console controller sucked, and the Gamecube game pad wasn't that good either. So I just waited for Nintendo to evolve into the product we have today. I love my WiiU. And I cant wait for the summer update.

i take it this is the updated punch out, the one without mike tyson?

Yes it is the rerelease from 1990 featuring Mr. Dream.
