Mario Party 2 Lacks Wii Upgrade Discount On Wii U Virtual Console

The Wii U eShop offers a small discount on Virtual Console games that players have already downloaded on the Wii Shop Channel. However, this feature is missing on the newly released port of Mario Party 2. The N64 classic has been available on the Wii Virtual Console since 2010, but now its Wii U release refuses to honour customers who have already bought the game once before. It seems unlikely Nintendo would be ending the upgrade scheme, probably making this a mistake on their part. It’s a good idea to wait before re-downloading the game, a discount likely coming in the next few days.

  1. The same thing happened with Majoras Mask the other week.
    Sucks because I was actually about to go buy this

  2. They’ve been having a real problem with this lately, the same thing happened with Majora’s Mask a few weeks ago. Eventually the discount will show up for you, just wait until it does before you upgrade.

    Also, “The Wii U eShop offers a small discount on Virtual Console games that players have already downloaded on the Wii Shop Channel.”

    I realize a lot of people think we should just be getting these free, but 80% is a small discount?
