I want to download and play Mario Kart 64, since I've heard how much fun it is to play with friends. However, I don't want to buy several more Wiimotes and GameCube controllers just to play that one game. The Wii is my first Nintendo purchase ever, so I don't have any spare GameCube hardware or earlier versions of Mario Kart 64.
I've heard about wireless GameCube controllers. Would those work with the Virtual Console version of Mario Kart 64?
Failing that, could I buy the GameCube version of Mario Kart 64 and use the wireless GameCube controllers on my Wii?
Are there any other options, outside of spending $200 on extra Wiimotes and GC controllers?
Thanks in advance.
