    Classic Mario Games?

    Im new to the Nintendo Wii, and to these forums. I have a quick question, and if it's been asked before I apologize in advance. Is there a Wii game out there, with the classic Mario games on it? Mario 1, 2, 3, World, and 64? If there isnt, is the DS and SP the only routes to go, other than the vintage consoles? Thank you for any responses.

    There are older Mario games on the Virtual Console.
    You need your Wii to have on-line gubbins (and Wiipoints)to down load them
    Its all in the Wii shop

    Thank you for the reply. Can you explain these things to me, Im still new to the wii world. What are virtual console, online gubbins, and wii points? Last question is do you know if you can get all 5 Mario games (Mario 1,2,3, Mario World, & Mario 64)on this virtual console? Thanks!

    by 'online gubbins' he means you need a working internet connection.

    go to the "Wii Shop Channel" on the main menu.
    from there you pick "Virtual Console" or "Wiiware"
    pick the VC and scroll through the games. from there you just pick a game and download it.

    as for Wii Points, thats the Shop Channel currency. 1 point translates to 1 american dollar. you either get points via credit card or by purchasing pre-paid points cards at stores.

    NES
    Mario 1 costs 500 points
    2 costs 600
    3 costs either 600 or 800 (can't remember)
    SNES
    Super Mario World costs 800
    N64
    Mario 64 costs 1000

    so thats roughly 35-40$ right there. also to play any VC game NOT on the NES requires a Gamecube or Classic Controller (which both cost around 20$)

    So instead of my wife buying me a DS and all those classic games, I can just get online on my Wii and spend about 35-40 bucks and I can play all 5 of those games anytime I want? Also, how do I get online with it? Is there wifi built in like PS3, or do I need to add any addition equipment? The reason I know nothing about the Wii, is because I dont have it yet. We as a family are getting it for xmas, and Im just trying to get my ducks lined up. Thank you to those who took the time to explain in detail!

    Wifi is built in
    Its all covered in certain topics in the online section.

    As soon as you go onto the Wiishop when its online you will be a bit overwhelmed with all the games to down load (for a cost)

    You don't need a classic controller. Only for harvest moon. The wiimote works just fine for me on all mario ones. Except I don't have world , yoshis island and 64. I have the original consoles and games for all those.

    that's because those are all NES titles. for VC games NOT on the NES, you do. i pointed it out above.
