Wii games with “NES controls”

Postby Voor » November 24th, 2018, 3:12 pm

My kids enjoy gaming, but they prefer Wii games with NES-styled controls over anything using a pointer or the nunchuck.

Any recommendations? We already have New Mario Wii and DKC Returns, and really enjoy those.

A safe bet would be Kirby's Epic Yarn. My niece and nephew really liked that one.

Punch-Out!! can be played with the same control scheme as the old NES game.

And while it's not ideal, Smash Bros. can be played with NES style controls. Every kid I know has preferred to play this way.

Thanks. I’ve had epic yarn on my radar, as we have Return to dreamland and it’s one of their favorites. Punchout is a good idea. I also found that Rayman Origins supports this controls scheme.

I actually got a long response about smash bros in another thread.
